Thanks to the organisers and to everyone for the Q's
Condx were pretty good all round with an opening to
VK/G/9M and points East at 0740Z on 10M. There were
also some good openings to VK/ZL on 15 and 40.

The first 14 hours produced 726 Q's but the remaining
10 hours of the contest were pretty dire with only another
134 Q's counting dupes, and I only nodded off over the 
keyboard once for around 10 minutes. 
I do seem to remember some policeman trying to move me 
along on 80m for some reason or another but at 4AM or
some other ungodly time I was past caring !!

I used the Wintest software for the 1st time {I have used CT
since 1989} and it worked perfectly apart from once when I switched
off an overhead neon light which it didn't take kindly too and
I had to restart the prog.
It doesn't provide a Breakdown file though or if it does I have yet 
to find it.

73 and hope to cu in the Russian DX this weekend, Steve.
