Compared to when I lost my BERU virginity in 2015, the conditions were waaay
down! 10 m was dead and -at its wake- 15 m was giving a eulogy by trying its
best impression of a severely depressed 10. With SFI=70 and A=12 this was NOT
the time for a vertical. Alas, as my uncle Joseph used to say, “when you
don’t have what you like, you like what you have” and soldier on. I offer
my deepest condolences to all those I couldn’t hear or took through the torture
of multiple repeats (callsigns and serial numbers, sometimes possibly in vain).
My excuse is that I had to run, otherwise I would end up with just a fistful of
S&P contacts with the big guns. Thanks for the great contest; thanks for the
Qs; apologies for being deaf, unfortunately there is no sign language on the
