The first day went pretty nicely, more or less according to the score plan.
Especially 10m was exceptionally good on Saturday, but unfortunately low bands
were not. Still, I had nice but way too short JA pileups on 80m and 40m both
nights with good/great signals. Great sigs also from e.g. YB, VK, ZL, DU, HL,
BY, NH2, AH0, etc.  The W/VE direction was almost completely dead on 160-80m
and I never got a real W/VE run going on 40m either. Except maybe for the last
5-10 minutes of the contest.

With more qsos but a bit less multipliers than last year (@OH2BH) I finally
ended up to *exactly* the same total score, the difference being just about 1
EU qso.  Maybe I have reached my score limit?  (I hope not. :)

Special thanks to Veijo/OH6KN and the Radio Arcala team for all the support.
Although I didn't reach my goals, it certainly was yet another great contest
weekend @ Radio Arcala.

CU all in CQWW CW @OH8X !
