The propagation changed a lot during the contest. E.g. in the beginning of the contest the path closed to any DX on 20 meters. 80 meters was almost dead to east but we worked 6 USA stations which is our record in SAC CW. The conditions on 10 meters were poor, some Europeans via backscatter, a couple of USA stns and JA6WJL obviously via the long path.
Once again we had problems with the serial numbers in CT and likely this was our last contest with CT software. We had 2 PC:s in the network (ethernet) and the PC #2 crashed. Despite we copied the correct log file from PC #1, one QSO had disappeared mystically from PC #2's log. We tried to avoid problems and used an old good version of CT, 9.37B.
If the 80m sent serial numbers between qsos #857...1011 are out of sequence by -1, this is the reason for that. Unfortunately we cannot be totally sure, when that one qso was disappeared from the log.
