Rig: IC756ProII, Tentec Titan 425 - 1 KW Antenna: Vertical Dipole (50' vert), beverages NE and NW Condx definitely not as good to EU this year as compared to last. But did manage to increase totals in every catagory this time, pushing the score 20% higher compared to 2004. First night contended with elevated atmospheric QRN levels that are typical here. Thank god for beverage antennas....on the TX antenna the S meter hovered at S9+10db. Second night the noise was down but a power line QRN problem to the NW was constantly cycling on and off which probably made me an alligator to many US stations who called....very sorry. Missed DC WY and VE4 which where apparently all active. I appreciate comparitive signal reports. Eamil me at Biggest thrill of the weekend was working A61AJ (K2GM opr.) at his sunrise.....honest S9+10 db signal. Only Asia worked all weekend. No PAC or JA heard. Interesting to observe band conditions here at local sunset. WB9Z, N2CW and W4MYA open the band from the states consistently night after night. Congrats to D4B, CN2R, LY4A, VY2ZM and others who have posted some great S/O scores. This is not an easy contest! And thanks to all of the casual operators who took the time to make some contacts. Will be QRV next weekend in ARRL DX Phone. CU then. 73, John W2GD/P40W
