DX Contest Summation
« on: November 26, 2017, 10:19:03 PM »
Propagation just was not that great on the higher bands, as usual activity from Europe, nothing much from Africa other then one station, about two dozen Japanese stations and lots of Caribbean and South American stations. There were a few stations on from China, thing is I do not think they understand about tail end contacts, lots of stations calling at the conclusion of one contact, but they do the vanishing act after one contact.

This year I concentrated my effort on 80 meters and worked several new band countries..

S57, 9A1, ZA1, plus SV8, Crete on 80 meters. A44A was being called by lots of stations in the states, but replying to few of them, just could not hear. CN2R worked on 80 meters, very good signal indeed, big contest machine.. Only action from Africa during the contest, that is normal.
