 Soapbox Comments


Where were all the operators this year? Conditions seemed to be fair, but
the amount of people operating the contest seemed to be few.

We were especially suprised that there were not many European operators.
We had a great signal report from LA2PA at about 1900z 10 May, (s9+20
dB), but we worked very few Europeans after about 0400z 10 May 98.
Signals were great out to the Pacific also (another very good signal
report from JA3CZY at 1400z 10 May 98), but again, very few contest
operators. Who knows, maybe our signal wasn't that great, after all :-)

Sunday (in North America) the contest turned into a domestic QSO party,
which was still fun, but not very productive.

Still, we had a lot of fun-we like the format & the 24 hour timeframe, &
we did work quite a few Russian/CIS stations. We'll see you next year!
