HG35XASA HP ALLDifficult to work with a special callsign, nearly everybody came back to HG3HXA and it took a bit to make people copy the HG35 prefix. My plan was a 40m SOSB entry, but by Sunday evening it became a bit boring (low number of QSOs) so I peeped into other bands, on 80m I even enjoyed some good runs. Tech issue: For a short period my software logged different numbers for some QSOs than what it showed me and actually sent on CW. So I tried to re-transmit serials by hand, which then turned out to be wrong as well. The problem affects QSOs between serial 249-255. Please do not penalise those who logged a serial that does not match this log in this series, it is my fault
