Scandinavian Activity Contest CW

This year's contest team were SM3BQC/Arne, SM3CER/Janne, SM3EAE/Lars and SM3FJF/Jörgen.

SM3DMP/Tomas had also planned to be active from SI9AM and arrived early on Saturday morning but was unfortunately forced to leave and go back home again because their dog became acutely ill and have to go to the vet.

Saturday morning started with data problems when they updated one of the contest log programs. It was the CW keying from the computer that did not work. They tried to find the problems but they didn´t find it. Instead they installed Log4U, and suddenly the CW keying worked again. Because of this, the contest team lose the first important 90 minutes of the contest.

Summary in the class - Multi Operator, Single TX.
1.408 QSOs, 163 multipliers and total points 525.023.
