This was not a good week-end for contesting. Had it all planned, then an issue developed at work which required my attention from about 1400z on Saturday until around 2200z. That put doing well out of the question. As it turned out conditions were just bad to marginal here so never got any really good runs going and just when things were looking good, a freaky thunder storm started up which put me off the air for nearly three hours around 2000z on Sunday. This had to be the strongest lightning and thunder display I've seen here in Barbados for years and it felt like it was right overhead. So in the end it was rather a disappointing effort. All the equipment worked well, but I detected a slightly sticky rotor on one beam which will require some attention before CQ WW phone. It was good to hear the usual gang of suspects with strong signals and also good to hear signals from 6W, AH8, and SV9. HEard quite a few good dx contacts but didn't have propagation. Thanks to all the stations that worked me, especially the rare and semi-rare mults who called in. See you in the rumble next year. 73's, Dean - 8P2K
