Comments:

Third attempt from the new station setup at LA8W.  We have some marvellous
operators, although only a few could join this effort.

Conds were not favourable due to the coronal hole effects on top of the low
flux, but we had a lot of fun anyhow.
160m was open only for short periods, mainly the second night. We could work
into MO and IA, but not any longer.
Only a few stations came through on 15m and of course nothing on 10m.
Low score, but we did our best, and I think we worked almost everyone that came
through.

At least we are happy to achieve a good mult count on 20m. 40m were open to NA
almost continuously, but of course not too many stations QRV daytime. 
Highlights included CA, NM and TX late evening on 15m and YT on 40m.

CU in the SSB leg.

20 hours of operation as given by the log program says it all. We stayed at the
radio much longer without getting any Qs, although we also had a few hours off.
And I think we worked almost everyone we heard. One QSO on 15m, and that was the
only stn we heard. The only really open band was 20m, and that gave us lotsa
fun. 40m was a dissappointment, MUF going down before sunrise in America.

Very happy to be joined by some HF contest rookies this time, since none of the
regular ops could join. Very happy to see new ops at LA8W/LN8W work with good
rate in pileups, and it seems to me the error rate was low, - thats good ! 
Thank you, guys.

Had maybe some audio problems on 40m, and low band RX antennas maybe harmed by
the snow, otherwise station was working fine.  I think Murphy stayed in the
skies this time - but there he also did a good job !
We're looking forward to get some bigger antennas up, though.

Thanks for all the QSOs, in particular those of who had to be patient for us
getting everything correct in the log. Really, THANK YOU !

Comments:

While expecting not-too-good conditions, we though we should enter the
multi-multi category so all operators could get some reasonable time in the
chair. This proved right, since conds definitely did not exceed our
expectations,- rather on the contrary.
Not many positive surprises this time, but fun anyhow.
Thank you all for calling us !
