This was almost totally a S&P effort, relaxed but focused. I tried a couple of times on Sunday to call CQs but it didn’t take long before someone loud just stepped on me pretending I wasn’t there. The click and shout cluster mob (the guys who spent so much money on the amp that they couldn’t afford a receiver or a new hearing aid?) was sadly seriously ill behaved on Sunday. With better managed pile-ups I might have done another few zones and countries. Among those I heard well but couldn’t catch were OD5NJ, TK5EP, VU2s PTT and PAI, C98LW, 5X1AB, 9K2HN and AH2R. I had nevertheless great fun and I have to be more than satisfied with 800q, 32z and 122c with low power and a temporary wet string in suburban London. With the exception of that click and shout cluster mob and some of those overly aggressive big guns I find the vast majority of operators pleasant, fast and skilful. The bottom line: A quite enjoyable contest and the conditions must have been pretty good on 40.
