On 10 meters we only logged about 80 US/VE stations, most of them on Sunday. 15 meter was good and 20 Meter was OK, just slightly more Q's then on 15 meter.
Propagation on 40 was good but overhere in Europe it was very crowded and at times nearly impossible to keep a good run frequency.
80 Meters was OK but again, very crowded. Furthermore we could also use some gain towards NA on that band.
On 160 we only worked a handfull US/VE's, we could only hear the big guns. In addition our 1/4 wave vertical was out of order so we only had a very low dipole and slooper.
All in All we logged a little over 3000 Q's which wasn't really what we had hoped for. Despite the marginal amount of Q's in the log, we still had a great time.
I have mentioned it before and I will say it again, it is so easy to maintain a high QSO rate when running US/VE stations. A bit of discipline obviously goes a long way. For operators in other parts of the world (to be diplomatic
) it seems a little to much to comprehend.
