In Belarus VO1MP was the first on the 10 m both days, well an hour prior to
other NAs. Than the usual team of East Coast big guns (including W3LPL, same
level as others) all at once, and than in a half an hour - all others.
BTW 15 m both days were started with VE6WQ with a great signal, good two
hours prior to others.

>In Finland the 1st NA station (both days) on 10ms was VO1MP. He was audible
at least 20 minutes before any USA stations. The 1st USA on Saturday was
K1RX. On Sunday K1s and K2s were S9 at the time when K3LR or W3LPL were just
in the noise.
