Thanks to the solar cycle for making 15m and 10m so much better than in recent years, and to everyone who had QSOs with us. We set the English M/2 country record at 5.1M points just last year, and so it's especially great to be claiming such a substantially larger score in 2011. On the other hand, we were a little disappointed with our performance on the low bands and we are already planning a four-square to replace the pair of phased verticals that we use on 80m. As usual, we were pleased to welcome a number of new, young operators to the Cambridge University Wireless Society team. As I say each year, introducing new students to contesting is one of our primary objectives, so thanks to everyone who was patient with us if one of our ops was struggling to copy you. The CUWS shack cannot be permanently set-up for contesting, and so most of our equipment and antennas are installed only a few hours before the contest. This takes quite a lot of organisation and additional thanks therefore go to everyone who helped us and lent us equipment for the weekend.

The call-sign in case I start calling "Tango Thirty Two Charlie" by mistake.
