    The 20m band on the long path into Europe on Saturday afternoon was
    absolutely brilliant. Short path on Saturday evening was also quite good
    on 20m. Unfortunately the contest finished as the 20m band was opening on Sunday. The map below shows my contacts into Europe.

    I made a number of contacts into Japan and South-East Asia, with most of
    those on the 15m band, and just two Japanese stations on 10m.

    My contacts into North America were limited. I worked a few USA on 20m and
    one on 10m. Unfortunately I did not hear too many USA signals on 40m.

    I made a number of contacts around Australia and into New Zealand on 20,
    40, & 80m SSB.

    Thank you to everyone who called.
