Just got back from M/S at 6D2X - score will probably be posted soon by one of
the ops.

1)  Scores & comments:  Particpants, bring them on.  This is a CONTEST
REFLECTOR and we CONTESTERS want to compare notes.  For u subscribers that
don't want to see these, do a SET NOMAIL (look at your FAQ for the exact
command) to cq-contest-request at tgv.com; do a SET MAIL after about a week
following the ARRL 10 Meter test. Most of the comments will be done by then.

2)  Two letters:  The net commanders should be shot for introducing this
practice.  A very contagious disease.  Sure glad to see the "EC" (Spanish
novices) giving their full callsigns & being for the most part, some of the
best EU stations to run this weekend.

3) KY1H - needs to learn that if the DX on 40M isn't listening up in the
American phone band, he's not supposed to work them transceive below 7100
(heard doing it twice on Sunday afternoon, even after a royal butt chewing
from us which he ignored!)

Had fun - almost wish I'd stayed home for this one!!!  --- not!

                    CQ WORLD WIDE DX CONTEST -- 1995

- The new Cushcraft 4/4/4 stack, finished Friday just before the 'test, was The Killer Antenna. It was worth all of the past month's effort to install.

- I continue to be impressed with the Force 12 6 ele Yagi -
the F/S is completely, unbelievably, OUT THERE!  Signals were 6 and 7 S-units down on the sides!  Unfortunately, this weekend proved to me that I made a major, major mistake when I put them at the heights I did (1.5 & .9 wavelengths).  To think I was n

- Most interesting propagation: working ZM2K on Saturday, and ZL2RR on Sunday, via Long Path (45 deg) on the 4/4/4 in the afternoon!

- What makes it all worthwhile: After requiring the involvement of the FCC to help resolve local power line problems this spring, I was finally able to take advantage of one of the (few) natural advantages of this QTH: Hundreds of acres of swamp, and h

That's my favorite part of a contest: when the band is "closed" to all but a few of the best-equipped stations, and the QRM drops to nothing because everyone else has given up hope of working anything else for the day, and the Q's just keep on coming! 

The band popped open to Asia Saturday.  It happend again Sunday evening about 22:30Z, and I was able to work a BUNCH more JA's (the Best Ops in the  World, IMHO), as well as a few DU's and RA0FU in Zone 19 for an unexpected Double Mult near the end of

Not sure what went wrong but some of you only saw the breakdown sheet.
I do understand why you thought I had lost my mind. There going two 
be two different sheets each time. One is a standing sheet, which is
this one and a breakdown sheet which explains itself. Some have said
they would like the breakdown sheet by classes. I am sorry but that is
really to much work, especially when it is reduntant to do it. Look 
at this sheet and see the scores you want broke down and look them up
on the breakdown sheet. 

I have also added the hours of operation to this sheet. I hope this
helps as some requested. 

I have put down every bit of information everyone has gave me. Now I
just hope nobody needs anybodys jock size!!! Got to have some fun with

  Two weeks before the contest, I removed all of my existing
  antennas (6-el 15m yagi, 4-el 20m yagi, 10-el 10-17m log
  periodic, 40m rotatable dipole, 80m loop) and replaced them.

  New antenna configuration used for the first time in this
    Force 12 EF-180S 80m rotable dipole at 100 ft
    M2 40M3L 3-el 40m yagi at 90 ft
    2 Force 12 C3XL 10/15/20m 33ft boom tribanders at 72/105ft

Band Comments:
  Conditions on 80m were considerably worse than 1994, even
  though I had a more effective antenna.  In 1994 worked 12
  zones and 18 countries. Never worked anyone in the Caribbean
  in 1995. Heard locals running high power having difficulty
  working stations usually worked easily.

  Wow! What a difference it makes to have some gain on 40m
  This resulted in a considerable improvement over 1994. Even
  managed to work 4 Europeans.

  Conditions on 20m and 15m were much better this year. Good
  openings on both bands to Europe.

  10m produced openings only to the south, mainly South
  America, with some Caribbeans on Sunday afternoon.

  Contest was an emotional roller coaster. Spent the two weeks
  prior to the contest working 16 hour days on either work
  items or getting antennas, switching systems, phase boxes

  Bad sign: started yawning on Friday afternoon. Friday
  evening (contest started at 5:00P local) was an emotionally
  up time. Pointed lower tribander at Japan and upper tribander
  at S.America. Was great being able to simple throw a switch
  to switch directions. Slept from 3:00A to 5:00A.

  Everything on Saturday seemed like a struggle. Both 20 and 15
  were open to Europe but QRM/crowding on 20m was a mess.
  Pointed both tribanders at Europe and moved upper one
  occasionally toward South America. Just didn't seem to be
  able to concentrate on S&Ping through the QRM. Seemed to take
  much longer to work through a pileup, with some stations
  being unworkable even when no one else was calling them. Was
  emotionally down by Saturday afternoon and decided I better
  take a nap. After 1.5 hour nap, felt better. Finally called it
  quits for the evening at 10:30P.

  Got back on the air at 5:30A Sunday morning. 20 and 15 open
  again to Europe in the morning and seemed to have much better
  luck (read more rested) breaking pileups. Realized about three
  hours before the end of the contest that I had a chance to
  break the listed W6 low power record of 754K. Found some
  African multipliers on 15m and Caribbean multipliers on 10m
  and finished the contest running JAs.

General Comments:
  Managed to offend a couple of net operators. Unfortunately,
  when you try to work Europe from S. California, most of the
  U.S. is between you and the DX. I was louder with the nets
  than with the DX.

  Found it interesting that an EA8 caused a huge pileup, while
  other EA8s were easily workable up the band. The loudest
  stations cause some of the biggest pileups, even when they're
  not rare.

  On Sunday afternoon, one African station had a huge pileup,
  while others had practically no one calling them a little way
  up the band. Contesters need to remember that a multiplier is
  a multiplier. There is no difference between working a rare
  African multiplier and working a common country if it's a new
  multiplier for you.

  My limited experience with the tribander stack is that the
  upper antenna was always louder than the lower antenna. Main
  advantage was the ability to point the antennas in different
