G3LHJSO QRP 20MCondxs fair, 20M was closeing quite early in the evenings for Qrp working, bit of a challenge this year with the poorer condxs, quite a few stations sending at nearly unreadable speeds which is not giving the newer contester a chance. cu next year 73 Derrick

G3YRZSO LP 80MI wasn't planning to put in a log for a few QSOs. This can be used as a checklog if it is late
G3ZGCSO HP ALLExcellent though Ws were weak this year. No ZLs here
G4CWHSO QRP 40MPropagation fascinting. Very variable over time. Path to caribbean sometimes very good. Northern US and Canada very challenging from Europe. Too many ultra fast CW senders. This is just antisocial. There should be an upper CW send speed limit, or unassisted stations are disadvantaged
