There were unfortunately bad condx from Central Europe to North America this year. We can not compare us with the stations from the southern and western parts of EU. A decrease of 30% of the NA stations was quite crucial to the final result.

2013 - 693 QSO with NA
2014 - 682 QSO with NA
2015 - 443 QSO with NA

Even so, we enjoyed a wonderful weekend  with lots of fun - novice Jarda OK1XUB was first time attended to his first HF contest, our team was supported by the boys from VHF section of our club: Standa OK1CID and Jindra OK1NOR.It was pleasure to welcome Gabry IT9RGY. He is excellent operator ( also cook, hihi)  and very nice boy - we sure look forward to see you again, GabryAll the technology worked perfectly, thanks Jan OK2ZAW again! The best band was clearly 15m, with the best rate 87 QSO per hour.

Big Congratulations to IT9BLB and EI7M team.
