Post Contest Report:

After a long absence from any serious Top Band activity I thoroughly enjoyed
playing in this contest.......
New Inrad filters for my 1000MPs arrived earlier in the week and sure made
operating a pleasure
during the contest ..... would recommend  that anybody looking for extra quality
for low band
CW op'ing .... get a pair of 400 hz  filters......  am not surprized ( but
needed reminding )as I 
had used them before in a 930.. 
Conditions were about as good as one could expect and my new Antenna  played
very well for me..
Had planned to get a receiving antenna on site  before the contest but as always
I'm the best  
procrastinator I know hi !....
Band opened very early here both days ... although sometimes conditions were
strictly one way 
and almost all the stations I heard from Western Europe were stations I had
worked the previous evening.
So spent a load of time searching and spotting !
Managed a couple of 100 hours  while cq'ing  not  bad for this band ... here are
some interesting 
stats (for me anyway) :

2 Point North American   =  41  QSOs =  5.4%
5 Point North American   =  367 QSOs = 48.4%
10 Point DX Contacts     =  350 QSOs = 46.2%

Obviously European QSOs from here contributed significantly ...

Day 1  =  513 QSOs
Day 2  =  245 QSOs

Sections  = 54 
Countries = 66

N1MM sez  I operated for 17.3 hours so I  had 30.7 hours off ....  obviously
there is no time allocated
for listening in this calculation ...... My log does show a long break on the
second day.
Best DX   ZL6QH   at 10:28z day one ....... Last time I worked ZL on this band
was 1985 ? during the same contest
think K1ZM ? was the operator ..... long time between Qs  hi ! 

Thanks for the QSOs   et
C'Y'ALL Next one
