COMMENTS:  Marginal cndx in the NW plus very high QRN levels on 40/80m
caused me to lose interest after 16 hours.  Seems as tho participation
was down as well?  Gotta remember that summer cndx not much fun on the
low bands which is where my stations play the best.  358 out of 725
QSO's were US stns!  Very low JA count......only 59 total all bands.
An all time low from this QTH!  Have wked over 400 in one nite in other
winter tests.  Last year made over 1300 QSO's and I thot cndx were
supposed to be getting better??  After reading East and South scores I
think I will dismantle my station and take my trap vertical to the Carib
2 or 3 times/year......The NW SUCKS....MY BEST HOUR in this test was
a whopping 72 QSO's!!

I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations established
for amateur radio in my country.  My report is correct and true to the best
of my knowledge.  I agree to be bound by the decisions of the Awards
