Due to unexpected fb band conds this contest was great fun again. Even 10m opened for a few hours to work some asians and one JA, also one US and canadian station in the afternoon :-)

We planned for some 1600 QSOs and 260 Mults and now are very satisfied with our score, which claimes a new record in M/S category. (old record was set by DL0MBG with abt 1,8 Mio in 2001)

As the WAG is a CW contest during the night I had to stay up the whole 24 hours. During the night the Multistation was absent for abt 6 hours, when Stefan went to sleep, but I think that we didn`t miss much, because there were almost no spots coming in and 20m seemed to be closed then.

Almost all CW and some SSB was done by DJ5MW, all SSB and a few CW-contacts were done by DK1MM.

Thanks for all the QSOs and see you in 2006 hopefully!
