Hopefully the propagation on 10M will be more favourable than in past Decembers!
Anyhow: happy contest.

The results of the 28MHz SWL Contest, held in the weekend of 10 and 11 December 2016, are available now. Due to the very poor propagation on the 10M band, there was very low activity from the SWL's.
In the CW category we found only one SWL active: Johan Heus, NL9723, and of course he is the winner of that category.
