We did quite well during the first third of the contest. Then the snow fall during the 2nd night made 40m band sound a bit strange and quiet. Some nice and rather unusual DX (for us) worked on the low bands: - N7UA on 160 in the first night. Fortunately for us the opening lasted more than 10 minutes as we justed switched mult band when I discovered him with a big signal. Easily worked VR2PX in the last hours of the contest but B5TT never came back around the same time. - KH6LC on 80m at our SR on Sunday morning. Weak. - Missed the QSO with KL7WV - Zone 01 on 40m. He was spotted but was too weak to call. - We never worked zones 01 and 34 on any band. - The words are missing to qualify 10m ... After operating our dearest CQ WW DX CW as S/All from West Africa in the past 4 years, I used to know the very bad behavior of European guys (no, those are not operators). It sounds even worse from this side and it is often impossible to get a confirmation of QSO. We have been very honored to have both Olivier F5MZN and Laurent F6FVY, the authors of the now world famous Win-Test logging S/W, as operators. Of course we used WT, with the same release from end to end of the contest and not even the latest or a future one! Also it was the first time we had the same radios on all run and mult stations: 5 x K3-100. As there were some strong winds mid November, we had to fix the 5el-15m yagi the week-end before the contest and also the big 6el-10m had to be taken down on thursday. It was worth fixing this one to work 41 Q on this band, unless we worked most of them on the other beam, a 5el at 26m. Who knows ? Come back sunspots ! Thank you for the QSOs and multipliers, congratulations to our many European M/S competitors. 73 de Jacques, F6BEE (sometimes 6W1RW)
