After last years record blowing effort in WPX SOSB 40 Meter, I figured that it
would stand for a while. My only goal this year was to meet or beat it. Well I
did beat last years totals and even had 159 more Q's. I was amazed as the Q's
kept coming in. The last hour 2300 to 2359z on Sunday produced 11 new mults. I
kept saying to myself 'I can't believe this'. The morning opening to Asia was
good both days. I had 84 QSO's this year, double that of last year. EU was good
at all times about the same as last year. 

Propagation was good and the band was quiet hear, which always helps. The only
thing I noticed was some rapid QSB both in the evenings with EU and in the
mornings with Asia and Pacific.

All in all the excitement of the great conditions kept this old man in the
chair almost all night both nights. I think the most fun is late in the contest
when you work a 6 point QSO that is a multiplier and your score jumps some 6000
points. Thanks to all for the QSO's especially those that hung in there when I
asked for repeats of your report. Thanks to CQ for a great contest.
