This was the first serious outing for G6XX which is an historic callsign that has recently been reissued to the RSGB after some 93 years. See the page for G6XX for some of the history of 6XX and later G6XX. It's been a while since I did an IOTA mixed mode, unassisted entry as a single operator and I was little rusty. I tried to keep a balance of band and mode operation and spent quite a lot of time searching for IOTA island mulitpliers on both modes. I didn't hear any VK or ZL entrants despite looking a few times but had a few far east, Africa and South American QSOs. As usual the main focus was on European Islands. I was glad of the opening on 10m on Sunday morning as this allowed me to improve my QSO rate at the end rather than see it tailing off. It was encouraging to see plenty of UK activity including multi-op and single op stations.
