Also this WAE SSB 2017 passed..
but passed with a very poor condition.
20m band was the only one band workable, 15m offered only two short openings to the EU, while signs from SA and the Middle East were always strong. the conditions from Cyprus were not at all favorable for running into WAE.
40m workable only in the evening but in low power setup it was difficult to log QSOs, maybe easier in the early morning. 80m completely dead.
Anyway WAE is always the best contest of the year !!
