The conds were as expected on saturday. But they were very bad on sunday. No 15
m QSO on sunday anymore. And look: 50 DXCC on 40 m <--> 36 DXCC on 20 m.
The biggest surprise was to work NO (in figures: zero) U.K. stations on 20 m. I
have no explanation for this.
Highlight was TY5MR as a new one in RTTY. Thanks, Andrea!
Some of the contesters should think about their text macros. It is frustrating
when  I ask 

   "time? time?" 

and I get such as 

   "DL6JZ QSL UR 599 123 123 ]s34". 

I have one macro with 5 times the QSO# and another macro with 5 times the time
exchange. And  I have separate macros for asking for the number and for asking
for the time exchange, ofcourse.

Another problem are the time formats like "12:34:35Z" or "(12:34)" or "12:34,". In all of this cases I have to enter it manually because no software will convert these strings into the appropriate 4 figur format. Why it is so difficult to send the time exchange as a simple 4 figure string? The rules are very clearly in this point!

Thanks to all for the points and my apologies to them whome I could not copy
because of the bad noise in my city QTH.
