It was fun!
Propagation was quite good but nighttime propagation on 20m never happened .We worked 100 US/VE stations on 40 meters. The activity on 80m was low (W6RJ was heard with 59 signal in the morning). 15m really opened during the last 1½ hours, big JA pileups and very strong US signals - N3RD was 59+30dB at 1000z.
The biggest problem was that next to our club house is Formula Karting track and their biggest annual contest is always on same weekend than SAC SSB. This means the additional QRN level S2-S4 on high bands - my apologize to those guys we couldn't copy. Nighttime is not any better: those camping Formula K drivers have a lot of TV/Video sets + other electric gizmos. Anyhow, we seem to have the highest qso total (SO/MS) this year - very interesting, because there is many bigger stations in Finland and Sweden - so our QTH is playing well.
Congratulations to SK3W. They finished 8470 points above us - that's less than 2 multipliers! It was interesting to compare qso numbers during the contest!
Fernebo "pallerallernas" hard work with (Finnish) antennas and PAs has been succesful!
(Fortunately we did not log any incorrect callsigns or received any wrong serial numbers)
This was our first contest with WRITELOG. We ordered software on Wednesday and had not printed manual to take to the clubhouse. No problem, everything worked FB! There is no way back and I think that we will use WL in the all future contests.
Thanks again to everyone who called us and
CU in CQWW SSB!
