2 boys, 2 radios! 

Propagation was really terrible up here in the Aurora Belt, but fortunately
our proximity to Russia made up for it to some extent. Especially 15m and
10m made Toni and I feel like we were in the middle of the sunspot minimum.

In any case, this was a fun operation. The station worked well and the
activity level was good, and thus we only had a few hours of under 100Q/h
rates. We also managed to get through the night without too serious fatigue
by frequently changing the RUN-station responsibility. 

Our pts/Q ratio of 5.93 despite trying to beam towards Russia as much as
possible was well below our target. Not sure about the reason for that yet.
Learning some more Russian should also be one of the next steps in being
more competitive!

Thanks to everybody for the QSOs,
