Condx started out ok but seemed to deteriorate as the day went on. When the SP
signals on 20 started to show flutter on them I pulled the plug. Nice activity
from the SP ops....thanks!

fixed a few antennas so that i could participate in this contest.Had fun and

Aargh :-(( The contest started out FB but there were really, truly awful
conditions on the low bands. In fact there was not much propagation to begin
with, and then crashes from electrical storms (somewhere)were a problem from
160M through 20M!

Saturday started off really well. 40M was hard going after sundown but was
better a few hours later. 80M.... wow, was 80M tough.

Next morning something had shut down 10M to EU but found many Q's on 20M then

Lots of fun! I had missed OK/OM contest last fall, this one feels a bit
similar, like it!

Thanks to all stations for QSO.
Congratulations to SP8R team for breaking SP record an making huge score!
Looks like it will be first time ever, when station will have more than 1M
points in final SPDXC results.

Just playing around a bit. Due to my location right at the German-Polish border
there is no skip into SP at all thus all QSOs were done on backscatter. Condx
rather variable but Polish operators usually have very good ears. ;-)

A pity Single band categories are either CW or SSB, single band mixed would
provide a lot more fun. ;-) Although entering CW section I handed out just a
few phone QSOs as well (not calculated in results total).

Nice activities from SP side and I felt I did better than last year but not
15m was open to part of SP land, however, I did not hear any SP signal on 10m
despite I got several QSY requests.

I was hoping to make a few more 10M contacts on Sunday morning but Murphy had a
different plan. Thought I would do a single band effort as I had not much
time. Thanks to all. FTdx5000 and Butternut HF6V.

Casual Effort. Was trying to capture all 16 Voivodeships (Provinces) but was
only able to work 12.

Need to put in more time for this contest. There were loads of SP stations on
but band conditions were rough. I gave the NR a good workout on the K3.

Had hoped that condx would be good on 10M on the second morning but no such
luck. 15M wasn't much better either. Nice activity though. Thanks to those
that worked me.

work either.

There is always an amazing amount of activity for a one country contest in the
SPDX! 10 meters was not open very long and it was the first 100 minutes of the
contest, so those in Poland who maybe chose to run EU on 15 and 20 for a better
rate missed out on some NA QSO's they could not make later. 10 was basically
dead to EU on Sunday thru 15Z. As usual lately, by the time 20 was in good
shape to EU the activity had gone down to 40. 15 was excellent both days and
was surprised to log over 100 15 meter phone QSO's most of which were in run
mode with low power. 15 did open a bit late around 1245Z (sun rise about 11Z,
a few weak signals heard earlier), but was wide open after that. 40 and 80 were
nearly as poor as they could get with a disturbance during the NA evening. There
were 3 loud SP signals on 80 a SP sunrise, but I missed a booming SN9O while
waiting for the computer to slowly reboot. 40 had recovered slightly, but still
was poor. Many low band QSO's took many repeats of NR/call to complete.

Many thanks for all of the QSO's and excellent operating; the average SP
operator is better than the average USA operator I have to admit. I chose SPDX
over two state QSO parties for that reason and the excellent activity.
