Bad Conditions and not much participation

Conditions were bad. Surprised at the signal level of stations, especially the
Eastern European stations, usually much stronger than worked in the Contest.
Which leads to thanking those who were kind enough to keep trying when asked
for a repeat.

Although the log says I operated for 2 1/2 hours much of the time was just
calling CQ. Did some S&P, but that was even less productive than the QSO
rate generated by calling CQ. Still I had fun.

Propagation was very poor. Copied only one Russian call but he did not hear me.
Very few DX calls found and very few USA calls found. I had just 2 USA calls
logged me first 1 hour and 10 minutes. Many calls I copied that did not come
back to me. I guess my 4 element YAGI and 75 watts was just not enough.

Casual effort interrupted by other activities.
Not much activity in NA, at least that I heard.
EU was loud here but had a hard time breaking the wall of EU stations working
each other.

Thanks to those who did work me.
