Disappointing conditions on most bands - our score 2M points down on last year, mainly because of poor 10m propagation. 40m was quite good which compensated a bit. We lost AC power to the site (ZL6QH) for about 4 hours of the last 12 hrs, but it made little difference because the bands were so quiet - we managed to keep 1 of the 4 stations running on generator power!
Highlights - Being called by FT5XO on 20m, some good pile-ups
Lowlights - 10m dud, 10m European yagi faulty
