Some comments on the rules: in the rules of these contest for some reason does not say anything about the rewards, that is, nothing is said. When I decided in 2008 to take part in them, I casually read this rules, used cluster, active spots of other hams, The report pointed "assisted" category - eventually I was overrided to the "multi ops", where I successfully took second place. But for this second got nothing, award for participation is not even sent, but in theory should, since in the first place plaques awarded. But nothing has been sent, even the electronic version of the award.

Longer participate in this test I have no desire to appear. For those who will work, show log of my work, and some thoughts on the test in 2008:
