Logs were up slightly this year in volume. As a results of your comments some rule changes are made for next year. New frequencies are suggested on several bands. CW operation is encouraged anytime during the contest. Now all multi-operator stations will compete in the club category. Please read the rules carefully.
Several stations said this was their first contest and they had fun. Main complaint was from the cw ops that wanted new frequencies on some bands due to interference from other digital modes. The new frequencies attempt to resolve this issue.

Thanks to all who entered. Please return next year and bring a friend.
