I'm looking forward to seeing how being on the cyclic downturn
of conditions affects conditions and results at PJ2T.
With trans-Atlantic openings weaker and shorter, will more
stations in NA and Europe listen more often to the South, or
will there simple be fewer stations overall staying awake to
participate in the contest?
Topband conditions in Curacao were noticeably worse in CQWW
160 this year, both to Europe and to the US West Coast.
