Conditions were poor, at least here. Only worked 3 Russian stations but called
several others that just kept cq'ing. I also listened to 15M but heard
nothing. Then I tried calling cq on that band but didn't get any responses.
Otherwise it has been over six months since my last contest and I am amazed
that everything worked!

With the A-index rising steadinly throgh the contest -- closing out at 33 with
an auroral level of 6.2 an minor storm on Saturday afternoon -- conditi0ons
were very poor. Flux hitting 100 for the first time in a while (driven by a
sunspot number of 62) helped a tiny bit, it seems, as I did manage to make a
few 20M polar-path contacts for a handful of European mults but they were very
scarce.

Now back to pre-season antenna work, and playing with FT8 on WARC and 6M -- a
great diversion for the solar min slowdown.
