Great fun. Overall really pleased to get the score up from last year, although 
this seems to be a general pattern. Had beaten last years score by the time 
that I came to take a break on Sunday morning. Took the decision this year to 
ignore the 2nd radio when the rate was above about 120/hour which I think 
helped me to keep the rates up rather than bust calls 1st time a lot as I have 
trouble copying weak ones in 1 ear. 

Had some noise floor problems on many bands from the site, but especially on 
160/80/15/10. Would be very interested in anyone who was calling and I could 
work - especially the piles ups on my noise floors on 160 and 80. My sincere 
apologies for this. I'd done what I could with careful Beverage placement and a 
noise cancelling box, but I need to work at it some more. 

Low bands seemed in really good shape, and although the high bands closed 
earlier than last year, it doesn't seem to have hit the scores. Depths on 40m
