Thursday 10th May 2018 - The Cloud G/SP-015
First it was the 6m FM session. Seven QSOs made, culminating in a pleasing S2S with G1ZAR/P on Bardon Hill G/CE-004. I was late starting due to several factors, but I don’t think I missed much!
Onto the main UKAC, and Sp.E was around, That, combined with the Nordic 6m contest, resulted in a lot of Scandinavian and Baltic stations in my log. The only thing was, I got a bit obsessed down at the CW end of the band, and left it far too late to concentrate on the SSB area, where there was also plenty of DX available.
Chasing the DX really slowed me down, and I made only around 60% of the QSOs I would normally expect to get on a contest evening.
QSOs: 58 - 7 on FM, 16 on CW and 35 on SSB.
DXCCs: 7 - ES, G, GI, GW, OH, SM, YL.
QRAs: 19 - IO64, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 91, 92, 93, JO88, KO18, 29, 37, 38, KP12, 20, 21, 22, 24.
