I had planned S/O HP CW, but decided to try to work all WRTC stations. Since
R34Y and R37G were not used, I accomplished this goal easily on Saturday night.
I subcumbed to the need to use packet. ( big mistake) I did use packet
sporadically thereafter, but like K3WW, I violated the band change rule.
Therefore the score is zero and will be submitted as a big check log instead of
1 meg.

To echo the sentiments of others, conditions were quite good on the high bands.
15m was wide open at 5AM Saturday morning. By the start of the contest, EU was
workable on 10m. 20m was open, but the EU stations were working each other and
the WRTC stations were weak and only hearing EU/Asia. Thus 15m/10m was the only
real game in town until Saturday afternoon. 15m stayed open to Eu until after
sundown!!! Saturday evening, 20 meters stayed open around the clock. Excellent
opening to Asia. 40m was open, but the activity to EU was down because 20m was
still open. 80m and 160m were extremely noisy

Congratulations to the people in Russia who coordinated the set-up of the WRTC
stations. Every station was of equal signal strength! 

Sunday AM was totally different. The noise was low on 80m. Easily worked ZL/VK.
The same was true for 40m. JA , Asia, and the pacific were very loud and easy to
work. 20m was good for the last two hours with lots of strong asian signals.
Even 15m was open to the far east at the end of the contest. I only wish that
these conditions reoccur for CQWW.

Thanks for all the qsos.
