After some antenna works in end of
September this was the first test for the new equipment. Therefore
the whole thing should not be too serious.
We had enough time to chase some DX also with homecalls and
also on WARC-bands, enjoying the new SteppIR beam. (TX9 !)
For Valentin/DL4VK this has been the first contest with
competetive equipment, so this was also a new experience for him
and - he did it very well.
Most of the SSB-QSOs were done by DL4VK, some SSB and all CW by
During the night we shut down for about 2 hours as everybody
had been too tired...
Highlight was a short opening on 10 that brought VR2, VU and VK
into the log and Valentin`s grilled steaks on sunday. He had to
grill outside the barn enduring 3° C and light rain...
This was a true fun contest! See you next year!
