They were not great.  I worked only a few Russians and did not work a JA on any band.

Let’s hope for much better 28 days later for WW SSB!  A big part of the game is dealing with whatever the sun gives us.

Was it just me or were conditions really bad for CQWW RTTY?

Will we see the same for CQ WW this year?  If RTTY is any indication, yes!
