4U1ITU - RUSSIAN DX 2008 - a quick analysis...

As mentionned earlier, knowing the station, I did not expect to be really competitive, so I am not disapointed. However it is always interesting to look at what could be improved...
Despite higher number of QSO's, we are not competitive... too few multipliers, worst pt/qso average. Having an attractive callsign does not fully compensate for station performance !
DR0W vs 4U1ITU: the main problem is the low number of multipliers on all bands...
Our low percentage of SSB QSO's did not help either !Our points rate-sheet by band and by mode: More SSB would have helped increasing the average Point/QSO... but except in rare occasions on 40 and 20, we did not manage to keep a decent SSB-run going... Again an attractive callsign does not fully compensate station performance, especialy when the condx are very poor... fortunately condx can only improve...
