Hello Joe and the gang,

Was QRV from SM3BYA in the early mornings of 12/26 and 12/27. Conds were
excellent. Had very strong stable echos for several hours both days, so
Faraday must have been extremely stable. This also resulted in long periods
of virtual lockout to some locations.

On the 26th had a very nice QSO with K9SLQ. Wayne was about 549 most of the
time, armchair copy. Later found he had to rotate polarisation about 90
degrees between TX/RX to make it.  Then tried with K4EME. Cowles was 539
copy every over for a half hour but copied zip from me - no pol rotation at
either end. Also had a NC with DL4KG; got everything except for the final
RRRs. 12/27 worked VK4AFL with 549 sigs (Trevor had to rotate by 60 degs),
completed with K4EME and had a second unsuccessful attempt with DL4KG. S52CW
and OK1DIG were unable to run their skeds due to iced over antennas.

Happy New Year to all !
