C4WSA HP ALLGreat Contest. Many thanks to 5B4ES (my old high school for hosting me)
C4ZSO HP 20M20 Mtr cndx not so good here with lots of fadeouts early evening band closure was a disappointment. Still a load of fun with some nice dx and many old friends contacted
C6AUMSO LP 15MBig fun, even with local power outages and operator caused logging mishaps
CE3/M0BLF/7SO LP 15MA low-power (40W), battery-only operation from a campsite. Even given that, it was a lot harder than I expected this far south. I was really aware that I was a long way from most centers of population
CN2AAMSHTNX to Eugene OH5DA for technical support
CN2RSO HP 40MGood conditions
CO6CACSO LP 80MThank you for contact, I hope to copy you in other contest, 73'DX Carlos
CO8ZZSA LP ALLMy first CW Single Operator effort in long time. My primary goal was the 3 millions points and I did it despite my poor RX conditions... in the middle of the town!!!... hope to do it better next year! Thanks everyone!!!
CR2XSO HP ALLA great 10 days in exceptionally good weather at San Miguel Island. Finally after almost 57 years of contesting and a few months before my 75th birthday I managed to exceed 6k QSO goal in CQWW CW. Even though the QSO count was achieved at cost of multipliers. I missed the 2nd radio but it would not have helped a lot since I am no good in SO2R. I hardly ever will break this score at least not from Europe. A big thanks goes to my XYL Kirsi who helped me in putting up two Beverages and sloping dipoles for 160 and 80 meters and succeeded in keeping me awake for 46 hours during the contest. I consider having been beaten by OH0X and CR6K (OH6KZP and CT1ILT) only by 5 % as another achievement. I wish those young men can keep up their level for the next 40 years. Many thanks for all the QSOs and excuses for the clumsy operating during the last hours.
