Maybe I'll actually remember to submit my log this year.
Conditions were down, but I managed to have a good time.
Any time I can run JA is fun contesting. What great ops
they are.

There are still far too many DX stations not sending their
call signs frequently enough.  Sending "TU" is a high-rate 
technique that requires skill to do properly. It is not 
appropriate when you are working one station per minute,
for example. I heard lots of stations pileups turn into a 
mess, simply because they didn't ID frequently enough.

SP3BQ had the strongest and most consistent 160m signal.
I accidentally called HG6N at 70WPM. Not sure how; I must 
have rested my hand on the page up key. I heard what sounded
like RTTY tones come from my TX, and then HG6N comes right 
back with my call sign. Now that's a good CW op. :-)

Conditions can only get better from here.  
Wait. Didn't we say that last year?
