> It was fun. Now it is Monday morning, tired but happy. Day off from work. Some
> equipment problems, we had thunderstorm on Wednesday and noticed when assembled
> the station that one of the towers was not rotating. Did some quick tests and
> decided that the one is going to be fixed direction tower in this contest.
> Probably lightning damage in the motor.
> Propagation was not as good as it was in 2018. Both 15 and 10 had ES-skip to
> south, some fast runs but can't remember any special dx propagation over there.
> Some ZS etc. 20m had both NA and JA propagation but aurora gave us problems here
> in north and propagation was far away from great 2018 conditions. Both JA and NA
> openings on 40m but influenced by aurora. Nice EU runs on 80m.
> I started so2r dual cqing from the first hour, in the beginning 40 / 20, later
> 20/15 and 20/10. Some relay problems which I couldn't fix during the contest but
> fortunately not so severe. Just made me to make more copying errors than SO1R
> ops. Had to ask repeats more often etc. But dual cqing was great extra to this
> propagation and conditions. It probably sounded sometimes that I was deaf but
> actually it just meant that I had a group of callers on the other band and
> making qso on the other band. As a total result it surely gave me some extra
> qsos. Not so fluent and smooth than SO1R but more efficient in the long run.
> Operated 35 hours. Rest periods were not propagation optimized but actually
> optimized for "Total fun factor of the weekend". So I watched both
> Formula 1 Monaco grand prix and Icehockey world championships. Finland won the
> ice hockey world championship. Fantastic.
> I reached the current Finnish CQ WPX CW record in my class, single op all band
> assisted, but my margin is too small. Teijo OG6N is going to keep the record.
> Thank you very much for all the qsos, it was great fun. See you in next
