From the results:

Multi-Single
Overlooking a cliff on southwest Cyprus is the QTH used by the P3A team. Most of the team had traveled from Asiatic Russia to a QTH that has some real locational advantages. They have built up the station over the last few years so that now P3A is a formidable competitor. This year was no exception. They finished #1 in the world, edging out another well-constructed station in Brazil, ZW5B. If you check out the band-by-band breakdown of each station, you can see how close the scores were.

There was also a battle on VP5 for multi-single dominance. After the final bell, VP5L operated by a team from Norway took world #3, beating out VP5DX from the NFDXA.

Comments: Great contest again. First time M/2 for us, and it was fun. Last season from this QTH as we have problems with the landlord. We’re already looking for a new place to stay, but it’s hard to find a good location. Included the breakdown for you to see our high and lows.
