Everyone had lots of fun, amazing what can be done with very modest setups
a small suburb lot.  Lots of DX, happy to break some pile ups with first
Happy to work 8P5A, MD/DL5AXX, PJ2T, V47KP and VP5GA on 6 bands. MD/DL5AXX
always had a strong signal here, seemingly regardless of band or time!!
low power, not much running, 95% of qsos were from S&P'g and Writelog really
excells at this with great point and click operation.  This software made a
couple of converts
from SSB only people. Amazed at hearing some of the QRP stations running,
better than we
could!  Best thrill was getting through the pile up on VR2BG just at the
close of the contest.

See you all in the next one.
