This was our second year in a row of operating IARU as a two-man M/S. This year we set an improved score target of 4 Mpts, but we ended up falling short of last year's score. The 2012 IARU was plagued by an X-flare whose "greetings" arrived once the contest was under way, whereas this year's edition seemed to just have poor conditions in general, at least from our northern location. Just about the only highlight came on Sunday morning with good high-rate sporadic-E openings to central and southern Europe. Thus it turned out that our hard multiplier work on Saturday wasn't needed in the end, but since you never know how it's going to be, you have to devote some time to those Saturday ESP QSOs on 10m and 15m :) We just about achieved our HQ mult target, but fell short about 20 ITU zones as a result of poor propagation. It turned out to be mostly an EU QSO party with a DX percentage of only 20! Thanks to the Brändö Island Group (OH2BH, OH2PM, and OH2TA) and the Radio Arcala team for this opportunity. Thanks to all for the QSOs! Kim & Toni
