First time entering the Classic category. Even though operating is limited to a
24 hour period, it's still a weekend long event. That said, it is nice to
cherry pick the best operating times!  

Conditions overall were pretty good. 40m was better the second night with a
nice opening to JA and EU well after 19z. 80m was excellent into JA. 

15m was perhaps the biggest disappointment. The short daylight hours, coupled
with low sunspots really hurt working into EU and JA. 

10m opened Sunday morning into zones 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13. Nice to
get those mults.

It's a bummer waiting for ops to sign when you're unassisted and using one
radio. I suppose it's fair to ask if not signing really helps rate or pile-up
management? N6MJ and others have recorded amazing records while signing after
every call. Just sayin'. The debate goes on.

Thanks to all for the Qs and another fun CQ WW contest!

73, Mitch, K7RL
