While helping to maintain the OH6LI/OH4A station the weekend before the contest, I wondered aloud where my traditional autumn cold has been this year. Sure enough it turned up just in time for the contest. Anyway, this was my first SOAB operation in CQWW from a big station, so I guess my adrenaline level was running so high on Friday evening that the cold just decided to disappear graciously. Didn't want to submit myself to the full-fledged 48-hour torture (yet!), so I opted for sleeping about 3.5 hours the second night. While at the radios, though, I must say that the level of activity this contest generates is nothing less than amazing. Bands were absolutely packed with stations, well at least the ones that were open. Low bands were great: Nice with some 160m and 80m W/JA action, 40m at times questionable but especially during daylight on Sunday it was a fabulous DX band. High bands were a disappointment: 20m closed very early both days, conditions on 15m marginal but still good for some multiplier work. Even managed to squeeze two qsos to W for the double mult.... 10m was just about non-existent. Again nice to see the increasing activity of Chinese hams also on CW and all the contest peditions. Missed some "easy" country multipliers, so that's one thing to improve on. Thanks to all who QSYed to give a mult. And thanks again to Jukka OH6LI for letting me work from his station; this time he was firing up the 160m gear at OH0V.
