Heikosti meni minullakin kuten muillakin. Lukekaa tuo soapbox. A indeksi
taisi olla huomattavasti enemmän mitä ilmoittelin soapboxissa.

 Soapbox Comments

 Worst condx than ever in SAC CW. The beginning at saturday was a bit
promising but when the night came with the A index 28 and the AURORA I knew
that no chance from my QTH. Even the normal night opening to USA on 20 m was
almost completely wiped away and that cost some hundred qsos. I did also a
thing that should never be done at 24 h contest: I went to sleap for an hour
when the qso rate fell around 10/h. No good USA opening on 15 m either at
saturday evening. 
10 m was open wery briefly and the best dx there was VR2BG, not a single JA.
It was completely blocked to west and at sunday it went blocked even to EU. 
80 and 40 m suffered a lot from the AURORA and they were well open only to EU.
80 m was so disturbed that it was wery hard to copy weak stations. 
Hope next year the Lady will stay away at this weekend.

 I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations established
 for amateur radio in my country.  My report is correct and true to the best
 of my knowledge.  I agree to be bound by the decisions of the Awards
