Wow, what a fieldday!
This was definitely a record breaking year! At least the German records in OC (DL0CS/P), OB (DM1A/P) and EK (DF0WA/P) were broken.
Due to super short skip conds combined with a high activity caused from the World Football Championship we had runs like never before.
We were able to make 300 QSOs more compared to last year!

Before the contest I told Felix, that I would be happy to make a 80 hour during fieldday. Then I started the first hour with 121 on 10m and 6 more hours above 80 QSOs. Great start!
But our race with DL0LA/P near Landshut was as close as every year.
In the beginning they started even better, but over the time we were able to close the gap and finished slightly higher at the end.

Thanks to all the stations, who QSYed for us to other bands, especially to Steve, GW4BLE, who called in on 10m 20 minutes before the end and went to 15, 20 and 40m with us very quickly!
Maybe these 4 mults made the difference to DL0LA/P !

As Felix is used to arctic climate the weather god tried to please him and sent cold, wet weather to our QTH. As we are at almost 1000m asl the temperature was around 5C and maybe even colder during the night. You can see the snowy mountains in the background!
Fortunatelly we were able to set up the station dry and it also stopped raining on sunday evening. But in between it rained constantly. The sausages were grilled outside anyway... brrr..

The rig did quite well, also the Hamware tuner, which we borrowed from DL4GBA (tnx Wilfried)
Because of a new rule we had to use my old TS850, which has some RX-problems, therefore we used a Dunestar bandfilter to avoid phantom signals.

TNX to Felix for the long trip down south and to DG4BUL, DG6MDG and DL5MIE for helping with the setup.

See breakdown here: DF0WA Breakdown
