Great conditions in this contest; a real treat from here. Was able to run both Europe and JA. Running Europe from here is a rare thing, so I felt very lucky to finally have a hole right through what would normally be the aurora curtain. Northern Europeans worked me from their full day light. Here's a partial break down: Zone Q's 25 210 (Thanks JA) 14&15 106 16 37 17 11 18 8 19 6 Note that, until this year, Zones 16 and 17 have only been worked a few times from here in the last 20 years, except for long path. I hope the sun stays quiet for quite some time. I did not work much in Southern Europe but did snag 5B4AII. No SV or even I stations were worked. Also no Zone 26 (usually able to be worked from here)or Southern Asia, South Africa and almost no South America from here. It was as if the Southern Hemisphere had a large attenuator circling the equator. But it was really a thrill to be able to work over the pole, which more than compensated for the lack of Southern propagation. Best missed but heard were 3V8BB, EY7AF and UA0YAY (Zone 23, which I never worked). Before the contest I had phased three North/South beverages together in attempt to get rid of some bad local noise that was in the beam pattern of my wire 4 square. This turned out to be an excellent receive antenna for over the pole, even though I spent a lot of time at the controls cancelling noise and peaking signals. Great contest, great fun.
