Comments: Alot more activity again this year and better bands too (at least
40/80m)! Could have used more people on the higher bands.
Worked hard on the wire antennas the week before OQP, with an 80m dipole
and 160m Inverted-L added to the collection. And, thank goodness I put up
a 40m dipole on Saturday morning. All played better than the vertical for
the close contacts!
Next year...retain the mults as is (one per band), but how about points at
least for both CW and an SSB contact? Might
lead to even more activity, and certainly more "mixed" incentive.
I'll be interested to see any "CW only logs" - must have been a test of
Had a great time!
I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations 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 contest
