A leisurely operation with proper sleeping and sauna, as planned!  The Scandinavian Activity Contest SSB two weeks ago, with record-poor propagation and heavy aurora, was such drudgery that it killed all motivation for a serious effort :)

Propagation this weekend was surprisingly good at 60N, considering the heavy geomagnetic disturbances earlier this week. Mixed S&P:ing and CQ:ing. I was excited about 10m being at least a little bit open so I remained there for quite a while on Saturday pressing F1 just for fun, doing my part in handing out the OH0 multiplier. 

Other pleasant surprises included a Saturday W/VE 15m opening, 80m being open to NA/CA/SA way beyond sunrise on Sunday morning, and 40m sporting some big W/VE signals about an hour after sunrise on Sunday, although most people at the other end of 40m were already asleep. The band was open long path to JA and ZL at the same time, and W3LPL took the prize with S9+40dB.
