Thanks to everybody for the qsos. As expected I would have too low qso point
average compared to guys further south. I worked only ONE US station on 20m, 8
on 40m, 2 on 80m and 1 on 160m. The lowband conds were quite good but 15m never
opened up hence the bad result on that band. I guess we will need to wait until
March before working anything on that band again.

Otherwise I am quite pleased with the result. I worked 100,000 points more than
in 2003 when 10 and 15m was open. I guess that difference is mostly becuase of
improved hardware and full SO2R capability. I worked as much as 24% of the qsos
(228 qsos) on the 2nd radio and it was rather boring during the night to hear
the same stations over and over on the 2nd radio :-)

The goal before the contest was 1000 qsos and make it into top 5. When it was
just a few hours left I went to hunt that goal and that made me miss a few qsos
on 15m I guess. I went to 20m too early and probably lost a few mults on 15m.
The only thing I really regret during the weekend, otherwise I could not have
done it better with the gear I have and location. My QTH suck way too much
towards NA to be really competetive but atleast in the smaller contests I can be
a little bit competetive. Hope I make that top 5.

New claimed SM record atleast...I'll do it next year aswell and hopefully with a
few more hardware upgrades, like a yagi on 40m :-)
