Starting early in the morning 27th Sept.2008 on 80m band I had no specific expectations concerning this contest. Propagation conditions are on the low low level, but maybe. When I was finishing run on the second contest day at 17 UTC here was 451 QSOs in my log and some very satisfactory contacts there.

On the 80m band the business as usual, but no US stations on the first night in my log. For some exotics it can be to mention CT9L (Rhein Ruhr DX Association - Contest Team) on Madeira and 3V8BB from Tunisia.

At 8 UTC I catched QSO with HV0A (City of Vatican) on 40m band, my first one with this for me rare callsign. I appreciate also contacts with EK0B (Armenia wkd on 2 bands), 5C5W (Morocco) and HB0/DK9FEC (Liechtenstein also wkd on 2 bands).

The most fruitfull in these years as usual was 20m band with plenty contacts from Russia and USA as well as some non-usual callsigns as ET3AA (Ethiopia), CQ95F (Madeira - in comemoration of the 500 Years of Funchal City foundation / Funchal is the Capital city from Madeira Isl.), 9M2CNC (West Malaysia), VQ9LA (Chagos Isl. in Indian Ocean), TI8II (Costa Rica), HC8N (Galapagos Isl.), DX1J, DU1BP (Philippines) as well as YB0ECT, YB3MM (Indonesia).

Working 49 US stations were bringing me valuable multipliers but also three new states in WAS - AK0A (Kansas), K0BX (Missouri), K7ZUM and KR7X (Oregon) already in LoTW confirmed. I like to mention EA8AH and UA9CLB with QSO on all 4 bands.

Most worked countries on specific band

Some years ago I found Joomla Content Management System (CMS) - fascinating open-source world-wide project as very good and solid basis for creating and maintaining of radio amateur web sites. I am very glad that number of friends, clubs and organisations utilize the power of Joomla CMS. Last time I recognized new fresh impressive pages of OM9OT Old-Timers Club SARA Web Site or OK2IEN Web Pages. For more interesting examples see my list of Selected Joomla Ham Web Sites .
