cq ww ssb kisa takana haastavissa keleissä, 2500 qsoa, monia mukavia
radioyhteyksiä. 10m bandilla tuli nollasta pilkusta ja aurorasta
huolimatta PY, 9J, D6, D4 ja noin 150 kpl eurooppalaisia. 15m antoi
yllättäen peräti 94 dxcc-maata. Välillä rullasi kivasti, välillä taas
ei. Rento suoritus viikonlopun muiden aktiviteettien ohessa.
Kiitoksia kaikista yhteyksistä ja kannustuksesta :)

Very challenging propagation, had fun with 0 sunspots + strong aurora,
about 37 hours.
Despite all these propagational challengies it was interesting,
different but interesting :) I thought we had a bad propagation in
SAC ssb contest but this was even harder. No east coast US on 40m on
Saturday, only one zone 3 qso. Worked first 40m east coast qsos in the
very end of the contest Sunday evening. And it wasn't easy even with
those big NA multi-multis. Only real opening between southern Finland
and NA on 20m was Sunday afternoon, a short one. 15m opened slightly to
US on Sunday evening. Northern Finland had a nice usual NA propagation
but I am located too south here. Mostly EU pileups and was suprised to
hear VY2ZM getting stronger on sunday morning on 160m. Finally Jeff was
"59" for an hour, all the other dx stations were atleast 20dbs behind.
Heard FY5KE and some other Caribbean stations on 160m, worked VY2ZM
JT5DX D4C CN3A etc on 160m. Mostly 98% EU qsos.
Ten meters opened to EU on Sunday, suprisingly many 10m qsos with
Six band qsos with CN3A D4C CN3A D4C LY7Z LZ9W P33W. Five bands with
A73A, FY5KW, ES9C, EF8R and many eu stations.
No serious SO2R this time, used other radio to just some propagation
checking on Sunday, no dual cq this time. Relaxed operation and had a
great time. QSL via LOTW. Thanks for all qsos.
