Equipment Description:

CT v9.39 on 486 notebook 
2x42m Doublet @15m

A very succesful fieldday ! and very unusal: there was no rain at all :-) Temperatures were ideal (abt 25°C during daytime)

No time pressure before the contest while assembling the station and also relaxed operating during the contest.
No technical problems at all.
and: one of the best Sporadic-E ever heard in fieldday! It was fun to CQ on 10 and 15 with our small setup.

The long Doublet (2x42m), although hung in north-south direction did not show too much directivity even on the high bands. Best QSO was VE1ZZ who called on 160m with real S8 signal on a quiet band.

As expected, DL0LA/P gave us a nice race, but we actually finished 1. and even broke their 1998 record numbers.

Thanks to DL1IAO for operating again from our location, Helmut for borrowing us his car and Florian, Ulrich, Günther and Karl for the help in setting up the station.
