I was active from 15th-16th March 2008 from the Cambridge University Wireless Society shack in the Russian DX Contest. This was a part-time operation, due to work and the CDXC Dinner on Saturday evening, SOSB on 20m only.

In about five hours on, I worked 387 QSOs. Top rate was 120 Qs an hour at around 14:00 UTC on Saturday. Sunday morning was very slow going, as I found propagation to be worse. Highlights were being called by VK3 and HZ on Saturday. Slightly worrying is the number of dupes worked, suggesting that I might have been incorrectly spotted at some point on Saturday afternoon.

I came 54th of 254 entries in the SOSB/20 category, 47th of 182 in Europe. (See the official results). After log-checking, I had 335 QSOs, giving a total of 181,104 points, a reduction of some 19% from the claimed score. This was still sufficient to give me 2nd place in England in the SOSB 14MHz category.

This gives a total of 223 314 points claimed.

I previously took part in this contest in 2006 from my home QTH, when I managed 105 QSOs (27 DXCCs, 35 Oblasts) totalling 49 910 points.
