Equipment Description:
Ant:Hy-Gain 105-CAS
1-before the contest 1000+ qso's
2-Saturday morning 500+ qso's
3-Sunday afternoon make at least 200 qso's

     No much to say!,This is not even near the score
during ARRL 10m in wich as a rookie a made 500+ qso's
in one day of operation.Isn't the solar activity sopposed
to be increasing?,I think solar activity was a factor
but i was able to heard stations from EU a few times
with good signals without getting a good run,it seems
that participation was poor and a bigger factor.Maybe
next time i can try the ICQ(internet service) WPX and get
better results.The best run i had was to EU sunday afternoon
with 47 sta. worked in a hour :-( 95% european.Congratulations
to K5NA for a great performance I heard his sta. about 90%
of the contest,I know that 400 qso's with that condx's aren't
easy with EU so far of them!
