This years preparations payed off well both in terms of claimed score and number of QSOs. 10 and 15 Meters were disappointing, 80 and 160 Meters performed much better than expected, in particular considering my QRP status. In this contest S&P operation is a must for a QRP station, so one has to rely on CQ-calls from LP and HP stations. If stations sends their call signs too often it slows down the QSO speed, if the intervals are too long, S&P stations can not afford to wait, but must move on to maintain the QSO rate. It is a difficult balance, and if the pile up is too big, it is just a waist of time to keep calling. The fun part is to find your optimal rate not least considering the hunt for multipliers. Hopefully not too many opt for S&P operation. Again this year I am amased just how many stations you can work with a K2 and 10 watts to an inverted L antenna for 160, 80 and 40 Meters and a sloping 20 Meters dipole for the higher bands. All located in a small suburban garden. Next year I will have to improve time planning in order to get a few more productive operating hours as well as time for food and sleep. Also I need to find an efficient way to catch other stations operating in S&P mode. 73 and good DX. OZ7BQ
