Fred/DF5UL and I were invited to join Phil/HB9FMU and Hermann/HB9CRV in the Helvetia Contest.
This was the first participation for me in that contest as a HB9 :-)
Normally I handed out some QSOs as DL...

The station was buildt in fieldday style, all antennas had to be erected before the contest and had to be disassembled after the contest.
Only the station was inside a building. We had the opportunity to operate from a horse farm, which is on a high plateau in canton Jura in beautiful environment.

The Contest:
We were surprised that you have so much fun in such a "small" contest, but as a HB9 station you sometimes really produced a pile up!
At the end we claimed with abt 1400 QSOs, see the detailed result above.

Thanks Phil and Hermann for a nice contest weekend, we will sure do it again !
