WOW! This was really an awesome experience! We had hoped for 7 meg but we were a
bit skeptic considering the low solar flux, some kind of wet fantasy would be to
reach the current SM M/S record, which is at 8.6 meg by SK3W back in 2000. We
did reach it, however we doubt that we have enough marginal to pass it during
log check.

The low bands were amazing during the first night, and during daytime we had
great openings to JA/US on 40m, which produces great 3 pts runs. On Saturday
night we got aurora and K-index 4, but as expected this gave us great US runs
on 15/20m which was a blast. However we were really afraid of what to expect of
how the bands would be in the rest of the contest. Luckily the bands didn't
suffer that extremely much, even though the following night (Sunday morning)
was quite a struggle.

We missed 30 minutes on Sunday morning due to a relay which failed, and SM2WMV
was woken up from his beauty sleep (much needed) to walk outside in -20C to
bypass the relay box. 

9L5VT was an awesome 6-band qso. Also working ZL8X during aurora conditions on
15m during the night, and working them long path on Saturday morning on 80m.

Things at the QTH are yet not optimal, its actually far from. We haven't got
enough flexibility antenna wise (especially 40/20m). We had one radio always on
80m, and two radios which were run/mult depending on situation, but only 160m on
one radio which made the result suffer compared to last year.

10m sucked, almost no openings at all except some skew path openings via
scatter on Sunday.

Next one is probably CQ 160 CW, cu!
