|Another great CW event and Dave, G4BUO, wins his third Eu Sprint CW. Dave won the Sprint mostly on 40m where he did a superb job. The second place goes to Ged, LY9A, who misses the first place for the third time. Ged was ahead of G4BUO on both 20 and 80 but Dave made 14 QSOs more on 40. The Lithuanians also take home third place with Ted, LY2OX, who is another regular in the top scores. Ted did a great job on the low bands but he only made 85 Qs on 20.
A lot of new faces this year but we missed a lot of regulars. We were surprised to see the top DL station with only 131 QSOs and we had no entries from places like EA, F, PA, LA, OE, UA9, YL, to name a few. We enjoyed seeing several participants belonging to WWYC - World Wide Young Contesters. This is really positive: we welcome the young, fresh blood!
The quality of entries is increasing: we found relatively few errors. These entrants had "Golden Logs" with no mistakes at all: OM5NA, RA3XO and some others only made one or two errors: congratulations!
