This was the first time I've worked the Russian DX Contest.  It is also the
first time to do mixed mode and packet.  I'll be just fine with turning the
packet off for the next contest.  It is nice to have people spotting stations
for you, but it is also much more rewarding to fine that new mult or contact on
the second radio without any assistance.

Big turnout in our "local" competition from our WRTC defined area.  I worked
N2IC, KU1CW, and K5NA several times.  I'm not sure how I missed N3BB?  With all
of the competition, it was easy to keep my motivation high throughout the

The station worked flawlessly, and conditions were pretty much as expected.  It
seems like 40 has become progressively worse over the past two years.  It was
very poor this year.  Very limited European opening at my sunset and no opening
at European sunrise.  Hopefully, it will be better for the WPX contests, but I'm
not holding my breath.  

I'll see everyone in a few weeks for WPX SSB as NN5J.  


P.S. I did not use skimmer in this contest.  I hope the contest sponsors
address the use of this technology soon.
