G3PHOSA HP 40MGood conditions on Saturday but well down on Sunday during last 12 hours of the contest. Antennas here - 40m dipole @ 30ft, + inverted V + wire quarter wave groundplane with two elevated radials, base at 7 feet. Equipment FTDX5000MP + Acom 1010 amp At least two stations were signing /QRP. I did not log the /QRP suffix as it is not legal. I hope you count Z60WW in Kosovo
G3RLESO LP ALLDipoles at 13m for 7/14/21/28, 50m Inv L 13m high for 80/160m. 100watts

G3VMMGreat contest. Thoroughly enjoyed by all of us
G3VPWSA HP 15MDecided to go for a daytime op this year, 15m Single Op Assisted. Mostly S & P using local Skimmer, no internet connection. Very pleased with 600+ QSOs and 112 countries and 32 Zones (hope they all turn out valid. The only got-away was OA85O for Zone 10 and Peru right as the band was closing. Thoroughly enjoyed again, can't believe I've been doing this for more than 40 years each November and still having fun. Rig here was an Elecraft line-up K3+KPA500 to a simple dipole at 30ft

G3YJRSO LP 40MGiving some points away
G3ZGCSO HP 40MGreat fun. But I cant work the Far East! I can hear them but no QSOs!
G3ZNRSO QRP 20MI would be very grateful if you would please accept my paper log entry Single band 20 mtrs QRP Non assisted section. I do not have a computer logging system or the knowledge to operate it. Now in my 80s I take part in lots of contests hoping to keep the brain cells active.

G4RGKSO LP 15MRig = IC706, Antenna = Butternut HF6V-X
G5WM2A bad weekend, weather-wise, meant we had one damaged tower, a failed HF yagi and problems with the receive antennas. Conditions, particularly on LF were excellent,and even 10m offered some good opportunities. So this is more of a M 1.5 entry than M2!
G8DXSA HP ALLFun entry only
G8GHDSO LP ALLtried to correct call sign as running low power & gales this end but not always successful
GD6IASO HP ALLGreat contest as always! 73
GJ2ASO QRP ALLYou can be as prepared as ever for the contest but one thing you can't control is the weather. Consistent Force 8/9 winds battered the Channel Islands for the whole week-end. I lost the 40m dipole on the 2nd night and the main beam got stuck South on Saturday afternoon. This limited my ability to Run into EU and the US, but working African mults was no problem! I spent a lot more time doing S&P as a result -with a very low C3- and was getting frustrated as my score wasn't growing fast enough.. I love this game ! See you next year. Kenwood TS590S dialled down @ 5 watts - SW: Win-Test Optibeam OB 11-5 at 60ft - Stuck South - 10, 15, 20m Force 12 C3 at... 25ft (Back-up) Monoband Dipoles at 55ft - 40, 80, 160m
