EI4GNBSO LP ALLband seemed less exotic then last year,but the activity was intense - i had to give up at 8pm sunday because i was feeling dizzy!!! great fun - as usual..
EI4GYBSO HP 40MWorked short propagation around Europe in the daytime and went intercontinental for more points after dark Band conditions were constantly changing most contacts were east/west of my station poor propagation to the north and south, a combination of running and search and pounce worked best.

HE8MHSO HP ALLbest contest ever made - new station and antennas good propagation and nice and fast qso on 20-40-80-160m no propagation on 15m and 10m see you next year ! (maybe new vertical for low band)
HG5XASA HP ALL40m was by far the most active band due to the low number of sunspots. And as it is a short band, it was a bit (khmmm) overcrowded. But I enjoyed it. I heard a lot of callsigns which were originally VHF only, but after CW is no longer a requirement in many countries, have received full privileges. I am very happy that so many of these guys have taken up HF contesting. It was more fun with them on air!
HI8PJPSO LP 15MA few noise, but lots of fun.
HP3FTDSO LP ALLIn spite of a blackout, nearby lightning, and weekend guests I managed to make 182 QSOs.
