I enjoyed my weekend as well, working the "usual suspects" plus K2UYH and
SP6OPN for CW initials #26+27.

On Saturday (my report 2nd) I worked OK1CA 579/559, PA3DZL 559/559, OH2DG
569/559, G3LTF 569/559 ES5PC 569/549 UA3PTW 539/569 and K2UYH  O/O
"Saw" a lot more signals on both 2304 and 2320 but mostly just too weak to
make out calls with my little system. Amazingly I missed HB9Q this time, I
guess I was lost under the pileup. Interesting to note that the strongest
stations I heard on 2304 were European.  Shame on you USA! ;-)

On Sunday SP6OPN 579/559, LX1DB 559/ 559, and OK1DFC 539/539.
"Gotaway" was KL6M (damn!) :-) who I saw on HB9Q but never heard. He posted
a report on HB9Q of my last CQ, but only after I'd closed down and gone to
Frustratingly I'd asked him for a sked 45 minutes earlier with no reply,
Guess he wanted a "proper" contest QSO and didn't want to respond or wasn't
watching! ....Next time Mike....Please!

Tonight I worked DL7YC on CW for #27

Please note that I think I'm the only UK station with a 2300-2302 permit
that's QRV on EME in this part of the band. I know the TS2K at least will
operate down to 2301.95 with a 2404 transverter where I tend to make skeds.

Anyone with 2320 QRM problems like a sked? CW/JT
