The russian DX Contest must be, outside of CQWW/WPX the biggest contest. every year great support from Russian Hams.
band conditions though were not the best. 20 meters being the main stay for QSO's.
i did plan on doing 24hours, but at 2000z conditions on 40/80 and 160 were poor and i only have wire antennas on these bands, so QRT then and back sunday morning.
sunday morning was good with plenty of stations to work on CW and SSB.
in total i did 9.5 hours in the chair.

this is one contest that goes into the diary every year without doubt.
