This was my first CQWW as a single OP from Africa after operating PJ4W in 2002 and FG5BG in 2005, always SOAB LP. Looking at the logs from 6V7D and 6W1RW in 2006 my goal was about 4900 QSOs and 515 Multipliers, resulting in 7.5 Million points. I missed that goal mostly because because I couldn't make use of the good conditions on the low bands. I could only once get a short run going on 80 and I had difficulties being heard at all on 160. 10 was also a disappointment but I hadn't expected much after watching conditions the first week down here. I was lucky with the AC power. It only failed 3 or 4 times for a few minutes and once for about 45 minutes, luckily never in a big pileup. I could quickly plug a battery in and continue from that. There was no need to start the generator which was there just in case. Everything else worked flawlessly, also a first for me (knock on wood). I started on 20 but couldn't get a run going so after a scan of the band giving me CE0Y I went to 40 running Europe. Rates were not what I had hoped for but OK. Then 80 and 160 for a disappointment. At the end of the night I was down over 200 QSOs from my goal. The daytime brought productive runs so I kept that difference. No Europe on 10 that I could hear apart from EA5 and CU2X on the first day. 3X5A were working G but I couldn't hear anything at all. Around 1430h 10 opened to the East Coast for 45minutes working mostly big guns and a few Caribbeans. At the end of day one I had 2461 QSOs and 400 Multipliers. At 0200 I had a little over 2 hours sleep in the chair and I woke up more or less refreshed. I had a little down period during the day again but finished the contest without problems. Before sunrise I can get my first run going on 80, the Packet pileup forced me to go split and I managed a 92QSO hour on 80 before going to the higher bands again. At 1100 a loud and lonely UT2FA came in on 10 but a CQ produced no further QSOs. 10 didn't open to the US on the second day either. Only Europe in the were some EA5, UT2FA, CS2T and CU2X. The USA pile-ups on 15 and 20 on the second day were still unbelievable. I still need to learn how to hear better. Sometimes I just couldn't hear even partial calls. The K3s variable bandwith is a great help in managing pile-ups though. When the pile-up was normal I would use 400Hz and narrow it down to 200 or 150Hz when it got too hard. 6band-QSOs with 3X5A, CU2X, HC8N and KC1XX. Congrats to Bud AA3B/V26K for another great scores. Let's see what the guys on Aruba were doing... Merci to Jan-Francois 6W7RV for being my host.
