Part-time entry, with just two operators.  Hard work, with the anticipated good
run to North America (and the endless multipliers) on the LF bands not
materialising until late on Sunday evening.

The single QSO on 10m was an Italian who was 20 over nine and the only signal
on the entire band.

We did not attempt 160m, because of the noise and the aerial was too low.  The
tower was not wound up because of the gale force winds.  The nine contacts on
the band took out the wireless router, which refused to re-boot for 30 minutes.
 Will need to re-engineer the 160m aerial for future operations.

(Note for next SSB contest - need to invest in another Microham keyer so that
both stations have CQ machines !)
