As noted by everyone very tough conditions this year.

Didn’t have my 2nd radio available so was SO1R. The 2nd radio normally
distracts me from how slow the 1st radio is!

A couple of extra bonus QSOs to be added for ZL/ stations that WinTest
didn’t score.

I had multiple G stations call as well as the usual non BERU countries.

As Steve mentioned we need to give this contest an injection of activity
somehow.

It is not good use of band space, operator time or brownie points from the
YL.

CQing without answer for several minutes then telling non BERU stations you
can’t work them looks bad.

We need to clarify in the rules the 80m band limits. I feel it is wrong to
not comply with the contest preferred limits.

It seems the only people getting reasonable numbers are not in the UK in a
contest run by the UK?
