Conditions were very bad due to the huge storm offshore, 6 inches of snow on
April 1st!!!!???? What is wrong with that picture?

80m and 40m was weak, closed too quickly, 20m was the only one that could make
some contact but worked most I could hear.

20m was awful at the start of the contest. Then there was almost no SP activity
on 40m by the time Poland was workable for me. Every 80m QSO was a struggle as

Thanks for everyone copying my QRP signal. It was a struggle on 80m and even
more on Sunday morning on 40m after the M flare, which led to a short complete
blackout here.

This was great fun!

My first real "serious" effort in SP DX Contest.

I can say I am very pleased on SP contesters approach to this contest. Good
activity, everyone is willing to QSY to other bands, and most important of all
- Polish operators are also S&P even if we only can work you guys! In
other contests with limited geography coverage, very often those stations only
RUN even if rates for them are low.

This nice contest I will work again for sure!

Hopefully next year will be different.

Propagation was the worst in our SP DX Contest since many years
Any way it is fun to represent SP on the air.

Tnx for all participants on both sides of the contest

Poor conditions made for short openings, mostly around local sunrise and sunset.
Nothing at all on 15m which was a surprise, given the appearance of some
sunspots lately. Best conditions were the last few hours of the contest on 20m
on Sunday morning. About 1/2 hour before the end of the contest a sudden
disturbance dropped signal levels and all SP's disappeared. I decided to leave
early and make it to the 40th anniversary meeting of the Yankee Clipper Contest

My thanks once again to Greg W1KM for use of his station and to Dennis W1UE for
the SO2R station setup.

Very bad conditions. Some fun in first 2-3 hours of contest. At Sunday aftenoon
40m was closed, I thought that my radio is broken. Just a few JA stations, weak
signals from K. East Europe in log mostly. West Europe - low activity. SO2R and
dueling CQ ineffective. Most activity was focused on CW. 3rd place in SP. Some
valuable points to SP INTERCONTEST competition. In such conditions high masts
and monobanders will win getting more 3pts qso's. Rules of SPDX Contest are a
subjest of disscusion but looks that it will be single country contest.
Fortunately SO2R is allowed now - no limits in band changes.
Thanks for qso's and points in our contest. See you next year.
