The majority of my contacts were on the 20m band. Below is a graph showing my contacts per band. The long path on 20m each day was very good, whilst I found the short path to be quite average. The 10m band was average, with just a few European stations logged.

My best DX worked on 10m was D4Z at Cape Verde. The majority of my contacts on 10m were into Japan (90 QSOs)

The map below shows my contacts into Europe, both on the long path and the short path.

The map below shows my contacts into the USA and Canada and the Carribean.

The map below shows my contacts into Asia.

I did not hear a huge amount of VKs or Kiwis calling CQ Contest. The map below shows my contacts around VK and ZL.

THANK YOU to everyone who called. Although I am a long long way off the leaders, I had a lot of fun.
