Not the best of propagations, but we are a bit amazed by the number of mults
available in this contest. We struggled bad on the highbands trying to get any
decent runs going. Only amazing part except for the multipliers was the start
on 40, which produced 983 qsos in 7 hours and with a 2.6 pts/q average. The
rest of the contest felt slow and I believe that USA should move their
thanksgiving weekend, to make proper room for the old farts out there giving
away a few qsos who are not participants. At least it feels like the activity
from US was quite low. However 845 NA qsos on 40m kind of contradicts that.

We missed our goal of 6000q by quite a lot, 3298 qsos the first 24h but Sunday
was a struggle. Probably we suffered mainly from too low sunspots, which didn't
give us really long openings on 10/15m. But even if K1LZ was +40 on 10m we could
not get any runs going, we can't really say why.

New Scandinavian record, so we are still very pleased with the outcome, but it
makes you wonder what is possible if we one year get really lucky during most
of the 48h.

Congrats the "bald team with kulmage" at SK3W for a great score close to the
record by the Paksalo Philharmonics boys in the east in 1999.

  1. Hi Mike, don’t forget to send in ur log… 😀
    You’re not yet in “received logs”!

  2. I am not the one handling the logs, SM2LIY does that since I have a habit of actually forgetting sending in the logs. Probably because my work load is quite high 🙂
