Operation mode was SO3R = Single-OP-3-Rooms. When I wanted to change bands, I
had to run from one room to the other. Not very flexible for operating, but
keeping the operator physically fit. :-)

20m propagation sucked big time. Here from Central/West EU only stations on the
outskirts of EU were workable. Stations from closer areas mostly did not produce
a single beep here. About an hour in the contest even stations from the Ukraine
were interestingly better worked on the 5/5-Stack pointing USA than on the
single 5-ele pointing East! And they were weak, not loud. I also heard ES5TV
for the first time only on a later visit to 20m and worked him on Backscatter I
think... I had more fun collecting 001s from loud W6/W7 stations, hi...
Similar situation on 40m. Band had already begun to "close", and the G-stations
were weak. Only two DLs, no PA, and no ON on 40m. 80m was OK from here, of
course, but I was running out of workable stations quickly.
