Score is a rough guess...

FT2000, ACOM2000A, OB17-4 @ 25m, OB80-1 @ 38m, OB804020 @ 33m

Score just an estimate; my logger doesn't support the Gagarin Cup yet.

Just played around a little in this contest after finishing some work at the
contest station (antenna measurements, preparing for WPX CW etc.). Started at
about 1440z and the first 50 QSOs were in the log after 15 minutes. Great to be
fresh meat; and with the beam to 60 degrees, running at 42wpm seems to be no
problem. Great CW operators in the East!

Finished after 400 QSOs in just over 4 hours. Did I really waste the same
amount of time yesterday in the EU Sprint to work 80 QSOs? :-)

I'll try to do this contest more seriously next year.

Used N1MM Logger's IARU module for logging. Worked fine, needing only a small
point adjustment.

Was looking forward to Sunday morning EU on 20M, after hearing incredibly good
signals from EU on Saturday morning before the 2100z start. Alas, there was no
opening at all to Europe on Sunday. 20M was essentially dead, even across NA
just trying to work Georgia. Heard one very raspy RX6 signal but nothing else
from over the pole.

40M signals from EU were pretty good Saturday evening on the low dipole here,
though not a lot of stations heard or worked.

Conditions were the pits... thought I wasn't even going to hear EU for a while.
Thanks for the QSOs. Score is here incorrect, probably slightly higher used
IARU in N1MM for logging, sure the points aren't comparable.

Worked with 100W and dipole for just a couple of hours in spare time.

Thanks to the organizers for a great test! Began work at 12 pm thinking that
test will not. but the mistake a lot of operators on April 11 to work. He
worked as a low power of 5 watts QRP and only 40m, but this has not stopped to
spend about 110 connections and ~ 40 on CQ(RUN) Mode. Thanks again! 73!
