DP1POLSO HP ALLThe QTH of DP1POL is Neumayer Station, Antarctica, Grid Locator IB59UH. Conditions were rather poor this year, 20m and 40m were the only bands that opened up at all. I spent a lot of time calling not to miss those elusive band openings. Nevertheless, I always enjoy giving out the CE9 multiplier. I got very few requests to repeat the zone this year, so my call sign seems to have made it into most of the multiplier lists available. Now I just cannot wait for all those sunspots to come back!

EA2EAM2Bands behaved as expected for this time of the solar cycle. 10 meters F2/Es propagation was almost absent. High band rx antenna didn't work well, need to fix that for the next one. Exciting and sportive EU dogfight with ES9C and 9A7A on cqcontest.net online scores. Thanks guys for the show

EA6SXSO LP 80MAs usual problems. That time with the amplifier. They QRMed 59+ on 80 & 160m. Fourtunatelly was discover before the contest.I disconected and LP mode again. It?s a real chalenge LP on LF. The only key for that it?s: Patience, Patience and clear freq to be hear. No way with pile-up?s. It?s better to return when everyone it?s tired to call. Fortunatelly some new slopers and good conditions let me to work more than I though, even pacific on righ window time. Thanks all 73?s Mike EA6SX

EA8CNSO LP ALLYou have to read the rules carefully before you start. No PC at home and I remembered (wrongly) that for the CLASSIC the operating time was 25hours. A pity since I got two nice multipliers at that time, hi! You have to correct this. At my age (73) it is nice to be able to compete without feeling the pressure you are used to have when competing

EC1KRSA HP ALLI hope CU in the bands next year 73 de Jesus EC1KR
ED2RAM2This time the team from ED2C used the special callsign ED2RA in memoriam of Gonzalo EA2RA who passed away this last year. Good operator and best friend will be hard to forget. The contest went well on friday night and saturday, turning a bit worse on sunday with noiser bands and shorter and unstable propagation. Huge RF returns from 40m vert ant fried the relays of 2 PA's making a bit harder the contest operation. Later, 80m dipole went crazy until the coax was changed. But finally all was solved. New operators on the team, which target is mainly waking the interest on contesting more than achieving amazing results. See you all next year and thanks for Qs and Pts!
