Comments:
Fieldday time again! 

This year Stefan was busy helping the OV A24 to improve their clubscore, so we had to use Stefan`s call instead of DF0WA/P as usual.

For various reasons we operated as a 2 man team and also did almost all antenna work ourselves.

Heavy rain on saturday made this a very challenging experience. (remember: the QTH is on 1000m asl.)

The sun, which came out on sunday was highly appreciated and improved the spirit of the FD-team.

Since a long time this was our first entry in OB category and finally it worked out to improve DL0DK/P`s old OB-record...

Although we used small portable towers only, the antennas worked pretty well despite of the unstable conds.
In the CW-part you don`t need high antennas, because most QSOs are from EU.

Also interesting to see that in CW part you can almost reach the same score in each category (of course depending on conds): compare our 2003 (OC) and 2002 (EK) numbers!

Let`s do it again in SSB, Stefan!
