What a cracking weekend. I have just calculated my scores and though not on par with all the others I have seen on the UK Contets reflector I am happy with my achievments.

I missed out by changing to all band on Sunday morning, but this was to test my HF Beam antenna. I have been having problems with it going out of tune but that seems to have been cured. I think my next move is to put my Mosely 5 band antenna up in the air and get shot of the MA5B. But then I am also contemplating either a 5 band quad or a 2 ele SteppIR. I have measured up and I should just get either  one of these in to my small back yard.

Back to the scores. Finished with 715 contacts for 245,686pts. I think I was a mult for alot of EU stations on 40 and 80M as I seem to have been plagued with them even when they were asked to stand by. Score band breakdown is:

80M   163 Q   314 pts   30 DXCC   6 Zones
40M   404Q   877 pts   48 DXCC   16Zones    4 Sec
20M   127Q   297pts    29 DXCC   14 Zones   2 Sec
15M   15Q     29pts      4  DXCC     3 Zones
10M    6Q      9pts         3 DXCC      2 Zones
Total  715Q  1526pts 114DXCC   41 Zones   6 sec  = 245,686 claimed

Not bad for a part time effort. I did concentrate more on 40M as this was the band I was origionally going to do, and I enjoy contesting on there.

Have fun and see you all in the next one.
