Among several goals for the contest was trying to keep up with the best SOAB scores on the West Coast. Last year my score was about 35% down from the top. Looks like this year I've taken a step in the right direction, but fell short of catching up completely. Congrats to K7RL on another fine score from the North West and thanks to other West Coast ops for providing a great competition. Yet again I find low bands in better and high bands in worse shape compared with last year. I didn't think 20 M opening to Europe can get any worse than it was last year. I was wrong. Last year I had 85 QSOs to this year's 80. Not a great decline, but a decline nonetheless. Need I mention 15? Who knew you can get end up with more mults on 40 compared to 20 and almost the same number of contacts? In retrospect, I wish I ran more, particularly on 40 and had more energy and mental capacity to do better with the second radio, especially on day two. On the other hand I'm quite pleased to get to the 2 M mark in CQWW, a first for me. Many thanks to Brad and Ruth for hospitality and letting me play using a great station. Denis - K7GK
