Hi Martin,

They sure made difference and IMHO it was more fun. I was on/off and only made 104 QSO’s, not a lot. Apart from VK7WIA on 3 bands I worked VK7SM (20m), VK7BO (80m and 40m), VK7CW (40m) and VK7GK (40m).
Jeff VY2ZM called me on 40m at 09:40 just to ask QSY to 80m. I thought he must had worked them all. We managed 80m QSO with my 100W and low dipole and he gave me mid-800 number. I guess we know who the winner is this year.
80m for me was worse than last year with weaker signals and very difficult QSO’s outside VK/ZL.
      Band     QSOs     Pts  Cty  Sec  Pt/Q
     3.5      24     560   20    3  23.3

   Total     104    2240   76   15  21.5
