Fun contest despite poor conditions. We still have issues with the TIC Ring that turns the 15 meter antenna which make it still un-rotatable (I won't go into the reasons here), so it was permanently stuck pointing north. Although there is a second 15 meter antenna fixed on EU which helped, we managed to put up a sloper for SA which helped snag the mults there and in the Pacific on that band. We could have definitely used the high 15 meter beam to enable us to better run EU given the band conditions. We decided that given the size of our crew and operator time constraints, we would do a "for fun" multi-multi to give everyone a chance to operate for as much as they wanted knowing that we would not be in a position to be very competitive in that category. This was fun for all who were here. We would have maybe been more competitive in a M/2 environment, but hey, having fun is what it is all about. Thanks to our outstanding crew. See you all next year.
