G3LHJSO QRP 20MVery enjoyable as ever, band closed pretty early in the evening for Qrp working, did not work so many SA this year and no VK or ZL in log. cu next year god willing 73 de Derrick G3LHJ
G3NKSSA LP 15MIC756proII 100W to 20ft vertical or G5RV at 15ft. N1MM logger. 17hrs. Two unique/valuable multipliers refused to work me saying "dupe" - but they were not in my log! Wish operators would not refuse such QSOs, it cost us both points. Conditions better on Saturday than Sunday. Strong "echoes" made many JAs unreadable
G3PHOSA LP 10MMoved house 1 year ago and still do not have beam up so entered this contest with low power and simple 204ft doublet antenna at 30 feet. My location favours USA and South America. The Far East and VK/ZL on the NE path were very difficult to work due to rising ground in that direction
G3RLESO LP ALLDipoles at 13m for 7/14/21/28, 48m Inv L for 80/160m. 100watts
G3SJJSO HP ALLThe Classic category is really great, allows you lots of air time without disrupting domestic life. Very enjoyable apart from a few niggles! High bands were good but on the lower bands I have a high noise floor which has got much worse during this year. In the Classic section you don't use Cluster or RBN and it is very frustrating having to wait 5 QSOs or more to get a callsign. 4L0A was the worst offender. Very poor signal quality from E73W. Multiple signals and spreading across 20m. K3, Acom 1000 amp, A4S, 2x phased GPs on 40m, Qtr wave vertical for 80m and a dipole at 55ft for 160m.N1MM logger, of course!
G3TJESO LP 40MLIMITED TIME BUT ENJOYABLE AGAIN!
G3USA HP ALLHad a bit of fun with my brand new call! Thank you
G3VDBSA LP ALLFT100MP 100W, dipoles 80, 40, 20 at 25ft
G3VQOSO LP ALLnot a competitive score but I had a lot of fun
G3VYISO HP 20MGood condx! Multi path to JA Sunday morning, LDE
G3WRRSO LP ALLConditions seemed good here - particularly on 10m - although probably not as good as the SSB weekend, and this weekend the Saturday seemed better than the Sunday. Activity fitted in around household chores: set out with the aim of working as many countries a possible (set myself the target of 100 but fell well short at 70!). For this reason, didn't strive for as many QSOs as possible until the last six hours when I thought I might make 500 - which I also failed to achieve. Hum ho, next year perhaps. Thanks as always to the organisers. FTdx5000 @ 100W. Inverted L, 50ft top @ 20ft
G3YSA LP 15MBand closed at least one hour earlier on the Sunday. Not much JA about on Sunday morning and not much from S.America at all
G3YMCSO QRP ALLA solar disturbance led to conditions on 10m that were not their best. This was particularly so for us QRPers, so I failed in my target of 1000 QSOs. Otherwise, a fun weekend and plenty of stuff to work. Elecraft K2, 5W into 75ft longwire and a 30ft vertical
G3ZGCSO HP ALLGood conditions for my poor aerials. PC sometimes misread the frequency. Dupes for JE1ZWT (20m) HG5D OM0M.(40m)

G5ESO HP ALLReally enjoyed the new Classic category, and nice to see 10m wide open
G5NSA HP ALLThanks to all the operators who pulled me out the dirt, gave me numerous repeats and slowed down for me. Great contest and bands all in good shape
G6PZMSHDespite the declining slope of the sunspot cycle, conditions remain good. We've seen 10 metres better but it wasn't bad at all. Some first time ops here helped us achieve our goal of taking the UK multi-single record. So did thousands of others across the world who worked us, operating stations grand and small. Thanks to all of them for making this contest what it is. Forget Christmas, Thanksgiving or even CQWW SSB - for us at team G6PZ, CQWW CW is the most wonderful time of the year
G9VSO LP 80MIcom 7400 with 100W, Cushcraft MA8040 ground mounted with 12 x quarter wave radials
GD6IASO HP ALLGreat contest as always - disappointed to have no 160m antenna - 73 !
GI4SJQSA LP ALLExcellent contest. Great band conditions. Missed a lot of time on Saturday but made up for it on Sunday with some long runs on the higher bands. For next year I must get my CW speed up and do more practice. Roll on the next one
GM4FDMSA HP 15MJust played around for a few hours to see if I could make 40 zones and 100 Countries. Not a really serious effort
GM4HQFSO LP ALLThanks for running the contest
GM4UBJSO QRP ALLHigh solar flux made the 10m band show us just what it can do when conditions are right, I made twice as many QSO`s on this band compared to the next best, however when the sun went down it was a scramble for multipliers in the west before moving down to 15. Great conditions and great fun enjoyed by all, 73`s Bill
GU4EONSA HP 40MThanks
