Guy, EA5/DL8EBW, reports CONTEST QRBs EXTREME! Fantastic conditions! I was only qrv for 2-3 hours and was pleased to finish a lot of real DX-QRB-Contacts!
Seapath allowed QSOs with S9+ over 1000km all the time!
Update 2008-07-06:
Was up at 05UT but it was terrible at first - Later IT9CJC showed up and was up 30db over 9! He tried some QSP and 9H1CG did copy me but no QSO! No great Seaduct today, but still some QSOs... 9A5Y was copied several minutes but QSO was not possible... So - still here and qrv until 10th evening.
