As the beam was still fixed on north I decided to do a single band effort on 80m.
But with what goal? I have 97 countries confirmed using LotW (more with cards) and I hoped to work at least 3 more new LotW countries this weekend. I also wanted a contest goal, so I looked at last years results. The 80m only entrants made very high scores last years. With 10/15 full open it is unlikely that there will be the same activity as last years on 80m, so it will be difficult to repeat that.
I started with a goal of 1000 qso's.
An overview of the QSO's per hour:
After the first night I had 674 QSO;s. Around 05 UTC on the second night I had 1000 QSO's. Rates were going down as expected. The last evening I had low rates but some new multipliers came back to my cq.
Most of the time I did run and made some S&P contacts.
Top 5 countries: USA (293), Germany (173), EU Russia (117), Ukraine (77) and Czech Rep. (72).
Top 5 zones:14 (367), 15 (338), 16 (218), 5 (204) and 4 (115).
Worked several new countries so overall a good weekend.
