My very 1st serious effort in this contest as SOSB 20m

N1MM Logger
* FT-2000 + Acom 1 kW
* Optibeam OB18-6 at 50m/170ft 4 ele. on 20 m

Prop very low at contest opening SFI = 68   A = 10   K = 2 going worse during
the contest Sunday SFI = 69   A = 18  K = 1 
Band open late at contest opening till 01.00Z (03.00am locally).
Decided to go to bed and started at 07.00z (09.00am locally). Worked the 1st W
at 12.49z. Very late opening to US at 21.15z non stop till 00.00z.
Went to sleep and started Sunday at 07.10z. 
Band was very poor, no JA's heard but were spotted. Worked EU only. At 14.00z
opening to the Far East with BA's, JA's calling. Surprised when was called by
9M6XRO, BV7FC, VU2PTT, BX4AQ, KH2/WX8C and later by ZM2M. Worked just a few W's
at 17.30z. Then band dead to the West. Later at 20.39z W's came back alive till
22.10z when I decided to QRT due to fatigue and building QRM. Last hour spent
on chasing mutls.
All in all enjoyed this super effort and am lucky with the calls logged but am
sorry for those I missed or had to ask agn, agn.

73 de Joe.
CU all in another contest
