First contest from my new location in Munich. Antenna obviously needs
improvement, but good to be on the air with my own station again!

Working this contest as SOSB is not to be recommended. It's a bit fun working
SOAB but it's too low activity for SB. Never got any good runs during daytime
except a bit late in the contest when I got a run of JAs.

Alway great to hear old friends from Croatia....will be back there for
the ARRL DX Contest in March....9A1A/9A4PN...with Charlie, NF4A/9A5PC.
Band was in great shape at the start on Saturday morning....Ok until
midday and then band closed one point, not one signal on
20 meters, yet the A-Index and other numbers were not bad....Band came
back after dark for a short time...worked a few JA's - then gone again.
Sunday morning, band opened early...well before SR and was good until
the end....
Thanks for the Q's and wish everyone....HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND THE BEST IN

Excellent propagation ! Cca 80 JA and cca 120 W/VE stations worked.
Some local noise source caused problems in RX several hours in midnight and
during that time could not copy weak USA stations who called me.
Thanks everybody who called me, see you in TBC next weekend!

Got some Qs in the morning, was QRL through the evening so didn't hit the low
bands until after sunrise in Eu. US participation seemed pretty low.

Just for fun, I fired up the K1 and spent some time at 5W just to see if I could
make a few contacts. Who knows, I might win world QRP! Didn't hear much activity
but from the NW that doesn't mean much. Worked a few with numbers in the
hundreds. They were on the east coast of course. CT1ILT was the best DX. He
must have good ears. Oh and by the way, it's just over 5000 miles from my QTH
so that qualifies me for the 1000 miles per watt award.

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, zepp, inverted vee. Only worked 9A7R
on 15M. No other signals heard, but 9A7R was strong. 20M seemed pretty good,
but closed to Europe very early. 40M and 80M were pretty good. There were a
few on 80 in Europe who couldn't copy me, but I worked everyone I heard on 40M.
Thanks for all the QSOs and hope to work you all again next year. 73, John,
W3KL   SOAB HP   2,9922008-12-21 18:53:06
Operating time limited to Saturday night. As well, my tower detuning system
started arcing near the feedthrough into the vacuum cap housing, which
prevented me from further 160 M Qs.

Thanks to all for the QSOs.

Made more stations and in particular 9A stations than expected. Very little
non-Eu activity. No contest activity heard during daylight hours, so operating
hours were 1400-1900utc and 0500-1400utc only. Eventually ran out of stations
to work, but it was an enjoyable contest.

QRL and family duties made this a predominantly nighttime affair for me. Good
activity plus fine condx on 80 and 40 provided lots of fun. Tnx all for the Qs
and season's greetings!

Very nice activity and good propagation on low bands. 15 meters was bad and 10
meters dead as usually. We bettered our last year's score by 300k points.
Thanks to all the callers.
CU in another one!

Tnx to all of you for qsos. It was a nice weekend with lot of fun.
Condx were great on the low bands with 40m open all 24 hours to both north
america and japan.
Pushed a lot on 15 and 10m to maximize mult number, otherwise maybe 100 more
q's were possible.
I love this game

Hallo folks!

Thank you for QSO's and your participations in our contest. It was nice spend
this weekend with you on the band. This was my longest SO activity, but
unfortunately with VY simple and low antenna. I spend lot of time S&P with lot
of noise, but props ware good on lowest bands and just few short runs. Thanks
to all famous OPs that receive my week signal at 160m (only few watts in
unadjusted antenna). Anyway it was fun and I am satisfied and happy. Like Davor
(9A1UN) said: "I love this game!".

Rig : TS-930SAT + YU1AW BFG135A home made preamplifier

Best 73 and all the best to you and yours!

First, let me say that we had an unexcepted visitor this year, Suad DK6XZ. Suad,
it was great meeting up with you for the first time, and it was great to have
you on boad.

As accepted, conditions on upper bands where very poor.

20m was disappointing, where we only manage to have decent run just for 2 hours
at the begining of the contest.

On the other hand, top bands were excellent. It turned out, 40m to be the
"money" band, which is a good news, considering the scoring system which is
favorising top bands.

We had a great time working the contest this year, and just to point out, we
will send the QSL cards to anyone via the buro.

It’s a very nice contest and its popularity and participation is increasing
every year. Also big contest stations are taking part. In 2006 1138 QSOs and
698 000 meant the first place, in 2007 1353 QSOs and 812 000 points and in this
year for the first place 1600QSOs were needed.

I was happy to meet old friends from the whole world, mainly from 9A. The
contest itself was smooth, lower bands were working good where I was surprised
to hear a lot of stations from JA, which was really rare in the last years.
The higher bands were not working for us, I was amazed to hear Braco 9A7R to
make QSOs with the USA on 15m. But lower bands made up for the fall-out.
Unfortunately, I lost 2 el. Yagi on 80 m in the evening. This fault probably
took away the first place from me.

I would like to congratulate Valery RD3A for his nice result and the large
amount of multipliers.

I thank the organizers and I hope to hear you all next year again in this nice
contest which proves that CW is still alive!
