Yikes! That was awful. Either the noise was high in EU or the propagation was
one-way all weekend. I had great copy on EU but they couldn't hear me. I
expected things to be rough with the A-index starting at 21 and rising to 31 at
end, just not THAT bad.

I was SO1R and only had a few hours here and there. Good to work some familiar
calls and at least my receiving is working well with great decodes from MMTTY
and 2-Tone.

Both NW and NE paths were totally blocked. Once again my QTH is 1500-2000 km too
far North. By trying hard I could get 17 QSOs from NA and 21 JAs.
I wish that the equipment manufactures pay more attention to FSK keying
clicks.

My goal was 1000 QSOs but hardly anyone made it from 60 deg or more North.

Thanks for the QSOs and see you soon again.

Pertti, OH2PM

Tough going. 98% S&P. One run of 10. Heard lots of guys who couldn't hear
me.

Thanks for all the QSOs. Also thanks to the Scandinavian Amateur Radio
Teleprinter Group for sponsoring the Contest.

Propagation was sorely missing. On top of the limited propagation,
thunderstorms in the area hampered the first op. segment use of the low bands.

Figures, I would pick a weekend of HIGH magnetic storms
to try and get back into the contest game.

Yes, conditions were crummy but I worked more stations on FT8 than I did in the
contest which tells me that participation was way down. When I could find only
a handful of RTTY stations on, I would go to FT8 and find twice as many.

Is FT8 the next digital contest mode?

Part time fun during the last period. Nice to have 10 and 15m open to Europe.
