Spring SSB 2008 results announced!

2008 is the 15th year since when EU Sprint was born. The first two winners were DL6RAI (CW) and IK6BOB (SSB). It seems yeasterday...
We went thru a full sunspot cycle so we had the chance to experience any kind of propagation and this time, probaby, we hit the bottom. Everybody can say in his own language
"poor conditions" (!£$%&?@#ß).
Only 6 entrants over the 100 QSOs mark means that all three bands were REALLY poor. It is not easy naming the one band that was the worst, no "money" bands this time.
Fil, CT1ILT, won his 4th Sprint while Ton, ES5TV, ended 2nd for the second time. Third place goes to John, YP9W, operated by YO9WF. The big score difference between the first two and the others is given by SO2R that becomes even more relevant when conditions
are so lousy. Unfortunately not many can do that profitably.
While the relatively big difference between CT1ILT and ES5TV comes from the many 001 that Fil got from USA stations that
called him on 20. This is a kind of work that you can do only if you're in CT... there are no other ways to log 35 QSOs more than ES5TV.
Finally the Low Power guys "took the power" and, for the first time, we have got more LP logs then HP. The top Low Power score belongs to OK6Y operated by OK2PTZ. He beated IK4VET, EI4GXB and LZ4UU.
This time we had 7 Golden Logs that belong to GW4BLE, LZ2UZ, MM0GOR, PA0MIR, PA3AAV, UA4FER and YB2ECG. Congratulations!
We will not make any change to dates and Rules for 2008. So you better red-circle the first (4) and the second (11) Saturday in October 2008 and be ready for the next two 2008 Sprints.
Thanks to all the Eu Sprinters for their entries and please don't forget to check our web site www.eusprint.com where you can see and download all the logs and the UBN reports of
all entrants as well as a lot of information about log checking, rules in many languages and all past results since 1994.
