Unfortunately i had very little time to contest this weekend. So put in a very
little effort.
Too much things going on here in the build up to Christmas.

Thanks to those who made the QSO.

Good luck to all for the rest of the contest.
See you in the next one.

Extremely light participation from the Americas. Worked the same 7 or 8 guys on
several bands (thanks)

Suggestion: If there were more prizes for over here, participation would go way
up !

As it was, it was like playing as an outsider in the Central EU QSO Party, hi

Thanks all. Merry Xmas / HNY

I needed to test an amplifier that had recently been repaired
and also how my Remote station at NX6T was working, so
took the opportunity to put a couple hours in this contest.
40 meters was the only band I could hear an 9A signals on at
the time I operated. 9A signals were not too strong and mostly just above
my S3 to S4 noise level. Nice signal from Brian 9J2BO in Zambia who called me.

Very limited time to operate this weekend, but thanks for all QSOs. Very good
ops with very high numbers. 80, 40, and 20 meter bands seemed OK. No signals
heard on 15M. Activity dropped way down during the middle of the night in
Europe, but that is a good time for low bands from the US. 73, John, K4BAI.

QTH Jelenia Gora - 70w plus g5rv(zs6bkw)antenna 12m from the ground. This was
new antenna for me which I was able to tune on 3.5, 7, 14 and 28MHz. On 3.5MHz
it worked quite decent were I was able to work 2 NA's stations (I think?).
Conditions were not nice. JA's were stronger on 3.5 than on 7mhz.

Very little participation from NA and JA. The 15 m short path opening to EU went
by almost unnoticed.

KN4Y   SOAB LP   13,6112017-12-17 23:27:30
Started out just to log 9A stations but soon realized conditions were not going
to be optimum, so to keep from getting bored I worked anyone calling in the
contest. I was going to call in the contest but that would screw up my nap
schedule. Had fun.

Fine-tuning some SO2R remote issues, part time operation. Amp still only single
band (kept it only on 80m), but coming closer to a fully remote FlexRadio

Absolutely NOT-A-THING on 28 MHz. I listened and I tried but "it's worse
than that, it's dead Jim"...

Even 21 MHz was poor. And 160 wasn't great.
And I don't even have the ON mult on 10m nor on 160m. Go figure.

It was a fun weekend filled with lots of smile & jokes with 2 good

Condix was especially poor on high band's & pretty good on low's.
This was a classic MS with RUN+MULT stn., no inband, switching, filters or
other fancy stuff ;)
I'm very satisfied with score, somehow we menage to compete with others in MS
with our modest setup :)

Wishing to all of you, a very happy and relaxing holidays & cu on the air
next year.

Thanks for participating & Q's in 9A CW

Hi Guys,

first of all thanks for QSOs and for participation in our contest. In opposite
of 9A5Y we had all funny stuff, OM Power, filters, inband, MK etc.. :) Maybe we
had a little worse antennas. As usual wind made his part of the job days before
the contest so we work hard before to start at time.

Congrats Yankee guys! Congrats also to our big guns 9A1A and 9A7V! Congrats
also to small pistols to participate and share this grate time with as!

Anyway we had nice long weekend on the hill with nice Sunday diner at our good
friend in the nearby village.

See you in the CQ160!

We didn't have a multiplier station. It was only one radio and 3 ops. Our linear
was operating at 400 Watts only and we didn't have chance with the big guns. But
anyway we had fun. We'll see you in the next one!

Condx not nearly as good as the couple days prior to the contest - but the bands
were open. Took off some prime time to watch my beloved Lions Sat 22-0030z.

One of my favorite contests.
