Conditions were certainly lousy.  Made 3 European QSOs on 10M- all long path.  I
never heard a short path European this contest.  Thanks to T99W, SO9W, and HA7UG
that somehow found me while I was running South America on 10M.  JAs on 15M? 
Never heard a one.  Made a grand total of 11 JA QSOs (all on 20M), against over
300 last year.

You know conditions are weird when 15M opens to SP/UA at 1100Z with loud
signals, then another European isn't heard on 15M until after 1500Z.  You know
conditions are weird when KL7RA is S9+20dB on 15M- at 7:30AM local time!  

It took me a good part of the first day to figure out that this wasn't going to
be a DX WPX contest- it was going to be a Sweepstakes WPX!  It was also nice to
see more low band activity than WPX usually provides.

See you all again next year!
