GM4UYZSA LP ALLI didn't get so long on the air this year due to my father being taken into hospital plus also teaching the Amateur Radio Licences. What I managed I thoroughly enjoyed.
GM4WSO LP ALLAs I worked this contest bare foot with 100 watts,it was S & P for the whole contest. Fortunately band conditions very good. Downside was the the wide spread splatter caused by a large number of EU stations using over driven amplifiers operated by very deaf operators.
GW0VSWSO QRP 20MMy hardest contest yet! Thanks to everyone who managed to copy my QRP.
GW4EVXSO LP 40MVery enjoyable as usual.
GW7XSO HP ALLFirst time over 10 Million points!
H22HSO QRP ALLDUE TO RECENT TVI PROBLEMS WITH MY NEIGHBOR I ENTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME A CONTEST IN THE QRP CATEGORY. WHILE OVERALL I THINK I DID RATHER WELL AND I AM HOPING TO PLACE IN THE TOP WORLD SCORES AND TO REGISTER A NEW ASIAN RECORD IN THIS CATEGORY IT WAS NOT A VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE AND AS SUCH IT WILL NOT BE EASILY REPEATED! CALLING AGAIN AND AGAIN STATIONS WITH DECENT SIGNALS WITHOUT THEM HEARING YOU IS NOT MY CUP OF TEA. AT ONE POINT I MANAGED TO GET THROUGH TO V85TX BUT HAD TO REPEAT MY SERIAL NUMBER ABOUT 15 TIMES BEFORE HE COULD COPY IT - THANKS FOR THE PATIENCE OF THE OPERATOR TO COMPLETE THE QSO AND NOT DISMISS IT AFTER 2-3 REPEATS, BUT I THINK YOU GET MY POINT. PROPAGATION ON 10M WAS VERY BAD AND UNFAIR FOR MY PART OF THE WORLD. I ONLY MANAGED TO HAVE 8 QSOS ON 10M WHEREAS OTHER STATIONS HAD OVER 500. ANTENNAS USED WERE A KLM/M2 KT36XA 6-EL TRIBANDER, CUSHCRAFT 40-2CD 2-EL MONOBANDER FOR 40M, DIPOLE FOR 80M AND INVERTED-V FOR 160M

IK3SSWSO LP ALLCon la sola antenna verticale e 100 w dell'apparato i risultati non possono certo essere esaltanti. Fatto ascolti di stazioni interessanti in 15 mt senza riuscire a collegarle. Propagazione in 10 mt completamente chiusa (almeno per me); speriamo che migliori quanto prima.

IR9WSO HP 10MThanks to all stations, nice propagation in Sicily to USA and W.I. 73 to all TOM
IR9YM2First try in M/2 @ IR9Y. We lost the 40m beam just few days before the contest but our clock was already set for that important sked.... So, a simple aluminium pipe run as a vertical on this so importand band. We just liked to be on-air! Still very poor 10m, 15m good just enough, 20m and 40m vell crowed. Very quiet bands - no noise - on 80m and 160m with UFB run periods also if using a simple wire antenna.
