I upgraded to new PCs and interfaces and finally I'm pleased with the outcome.
There are still some minor issues to fix before the next phone contest.

There wasn't enough time prior to the weekend to get DXLog installed properly.
Congrats to YP9W and sorry that I wasn't able to feed the Live Score Server. My
score is just a rough calculation as WT does not support GC.

Unfortunately I had to leave the radio and take my off-time when 10/15m were
just opening to the far east.

Just two hours in the chair. Conditions Saturday were extremely poor -- pretty
much radio blackout mode. Sunday wasn't much better, but a few stations heard
me.

Hard to find anyone not in JIDX early on, but easier at the end. Quite a few
casual callers didn't give me their ITU zones, and several of them evidently
didn't copy "UR ITU ZONE?", even sent slowly and repeatedly
(pointedly!). CW is a dying art ... but some of us are doing our level best to
pump the life back into it! DSW/kia ora, Gary ZL2iFB/ZM4G

Poor 10 m condx and weak sigs on all bands but good RA participation. JIDX and
EU Sprint worked on the side with same beam heading. Dull it isn't!

K2, 5 meter wire with ATU (CG3000), Logging software: DXLog

Score above does not take into account new scoring system as I used older
version of DXLog.

Just before this contest starts, my K3 stop working. :-( It is second time I
have to repair it just before WRTC events. Last time was KIO3 board not working
before WRTC2010 and it is very clear where the problem was. However this time it
may take some time to identify problem.

Plenty of activities but weak signals on high band due to solar disturbance.

The propagation was not the best this weekend.
The A value was up to 28, and that is not so good
for us living to far north. Once again great activity
from russians radio ham. They are great cw-ops.
Surprise to work zm4g on 20 mtr, one call and then in log.
