This pedition was succesful, especially comparing to one year before. Within 10 days we heard almost all European countries plus Morocco (which was one of the first logged station).
We hoped to have openings to Spain and Portugal and got them!! Also Turkey and Greece - and even Iceland!! Very unique period -finally! Also nice openings to South France and Bretagne.
What was missing: No Balkan, no Serbia (only briefly) and also UK was almost totally missing this time. Only a few STL-links around 50 MHz + BBC on lower band.
The price of the longest-skip-competition goes to Marko Brask (MB). He id'ed first MFM Oriental 89.2, Béni-Mellal-site, Morocco, although everybody heard it. So, he got the Utö FM-DX-2012 T-shirt and baseball-cap! Congrats!
