Soapbox comments by OH1NOA:
"OH1MDR arrived to the site only 10 minutes before 1200z.
He came from funeral, dressed in black - that I call a cool
Unfortunately our 2 PC network was not functional, so the first
hour went by MDR setting up/changing another PC and NOA doing
single op/single band 15 meters ... Fortunately pileup was quite
good that time! Then we found out that K1EA's latest version 9.50
sends serial numbers by bands not like a running number of total
qsos - in the DXpedition mode which we used. Later we changed to
the old 9.37 version which sent numbers correctly ... we worked
K1EA during the contest, fortunately (to Ken) it was CW not SSB
DX propagation was really bad. Only a handful of US stations
worked on 80-15m - nothing heard from NA on 10 meters. On 80m we
worked K5ZD and W1FJ (who was real 599) + PY2YU, 9X1A, JY9NX.
On 10m only one weak JA: JG1ILF. Maybe band was better to JA
from the east. But, oh boy, it was a looooong night:
02-06z qso rates: 24, 21, 15, 24, 29 ...
We had a very aggressive tactic of moving multipliers. It is a
real must in SAC nowadays. I remember when I started in the 80's
everyone just shouted CQ during the SAC and not moving to
anywhere for mults, hi!
In the multi-single class a 10-minute-rule limits sometimes
comparing to SOAB - many times you "can do it" only with 2 bands
with a multiplier. Unfortunately this year our 265 mults seem
not to be enough to beat 8-men-giant in Paksalo ... =) or =( "
