I can't recall conditions being so bad. 20m was weak and 
slow. The low bands even weaker and slower. Activity 
seemed really low as well.

I pushed two radios as hard as I could, but mostly that 
was unanswered CQs, people moving in on my CQ frequency, 
and people CQing in my face without even a "?".  

MMTTY crashed once during the contest, or maybe I clicked 
on something I shouldn't, but even the time to restart it 
and redo the settings was more interesting than the slow 
QSO rate. Even working dupes was better than nothing. I 
worked people who were giving the Makrothen exchange,
and people ragchewing who wanted to tell me all about 
their equipment. I was relieved to finally work even 
10 QSOs on 80m! Maybe everyone gave up early?
