EW8DXSO HP ALLKenwood TS-950SD, PA-500 Watts; Yagi, Dipoles
F/G4BJMSO HP ALLQTH nr Niort, Poitou Charentes, France
F2DXSO HP 80MLess than 24 hours of traffic because the 80m band was totally dead in this side of Europe during the daylight (not a single signal Saturday and Sunday for more than 11 hours)! The rate was often very low with 40 QSOs per hour, leaving ample time to cross the band for new prefixes. American friends, where were you? I have reached only 145 of you while the majority of the US signals on 80m were S-9 (last QSOs 1 hour and a half after my sunrise). Thank you to those who called me. Setup: TS-850 + kW + full-size 4-Square + 8 beverages 180 to 200 m long.

G3YMCSO QRP ALLA slightly smaller entry this year as I couldn't spend the whole weekend. Conditions in general were poor, with very little outside Europe worked and the lower bands very noisy. But made up by having excellent sporadic E on 10m and 15m. Reasonable attempt under the circumstances with my small QRP station. 73 Dave
