Happy to hear so much cw-ops partying.
Worked saturday ,so a late start for me.
Started about 1915z in the evening on saturday.
Started on 1810 and tuning up to 1890, 2 hour qrv.
Worked 125 q's on 80 kHz,rate of 60 q's a hour S/P.
Conds was ok the 2nd night from my qth.
Some dx worked :3v-4x-5b-ct3-d4-ea9-hz-jt-kp2-p4-ta-ua9-zf-k-ve.
Missed easy mults,never heard GI-GW,heard ea8-ct9-uk-fm-pj2-pj4 no-qso
strugle to work VE but made 1 qso.(VO2AC)he had very good ears.
Was running 150 watt into W8AMZ sloper,150 w is high Power
from this year, I think that's good news since most radios
are 100 watts, I learned it after the contest was over.
Ended up with 333 qso's, had a lot of fun, CW is real radio qso's.

Let's hope this forecast it's correct.
That will say in a 3-4 years we can work
ton's of DX on 10 mtr again....
I cross my fingers that it will be on the same

My 2nd FT4/8 contest is over,this was more fun than the first one.
Had hoped for more activity,it was much activty on the common FT8
frequencys,lets hope the word will be spread till NeXT year about
this contest,so more station will take part....some say let this be
only a contest with Ft4 mode....I say NO NO..lets have both mode.
Sometimes the little gun can not make the qso in FT4 mode...he need
the FT8 mode for create the qso....proven many times for me this
weekend. Conds was ok on 40 80 mtr, from my qth 20 mtr was not in
good form, closed very early both days. Not a single JA worked on 20.
Had some problem with station that not was in contest was calling me.
The radio and computer get a hick-up and some times the only solution
was to change mode/band for a while, If you look in the rx-window you
should easly understand that the ex-change report are different from
what you send....but stupidity and laziness it's a gift for some  people.....and
a nightmare for others....Good night.....

I like this maps with the qso's on.
thank you to DL4MFM
Look on the map, no stations from
Africa-South America ore Oceania.
Lets hope they can take part NeXT year.

Only S/P for me this year also.
I'm lazy, no antenna work this summer.
Tower With yagies are locked to 30 degree North.
Not to much to work in that direction ...from this qth.
To much work,like Money,like vacation.
Hope for NeXT year that my antennas are up and going again.
A lot of great cw-ops out there,the op at TI7W is amazing.
I worked 98 dxcc during the contest, only turning the vfo .
