After half a century of various contest experiences, I wanted to try something new. That was entering 10M monoband during a sunspot minimum, with a miserable propagation forecast. About 8000 CQs by F1 gave 400 Qs.The remaining 80 were by S&P. First day 300 Qs, the second day 184 Qs. Continent distribution: NA 56 % SA 30 % EU 8 % AF 3 % OC 2 % AS 1 % Nothing from Russia and the ex-Soviet countries. No JA, no VE, no DL. Just EA CT F G EI SV I ZB2 9H from EU. The short US "pile-up" with rates up to 80/hour lasted from 19Z to 22Z I screened the WPX SSB 10M results for past decades: It seems that the propagation in 2017 was the worst since 1986. The highlight of this contest was the five-star service provided by my host Atilano, PY5EG, and his wife Marcia. This included full breakfast, tasty lunch, and delicious dinner served with red wine. The rig: Yaesu FT-2000 with amp, 1 kW Ant: Two 6 el monoband yagis up 22m and 12m plus a SteppIR up 40m, allowing simultaneous beaming in 3 directions. 73, Ville PY2ZEA OH2MM
