Total Score = 683,550Club:

Very poor condx, low participation... a big change compaired to last week SCC, and a final score only 50% of last year.
Started very slowly - Only 34 Q's the first hour. 40m almost closed in the second part of the night (almost except for UU7J only visible station on the 756 spectrum display !).
The rate dropped below 10 in the 3rd hour, and only took over slowly with the sun and the opening of 40m and 20m.
After a long mid-day break, things started to improve a bit at the end of the afternoon...Curiously 80m remained very quiet (only 5 DL's, but a lot of statics!) the only satisfaction is to have been able to pass the 200 mults with such adverse condx.
Anyway tnx to contest sponsors for organizing, and to all for the QSO's - See you in CQWW... with better condx, we all hope !
