C4WSO HP ALLGreat contest! My remote station is slowly improving. One radio
CB3RSO LP ALLSaturday afternoon was encouraging for 20 and 15 meters. both bands produce something. It was incredible that during my 34 hours of operation I did not have any pileup. This has never happened to me. Sunday was a day of very few contacts, although in 20 meters all afternoon Europe arrived very well, the only way to make contacts with my 3 yagi elements at 14 meters and 100 watts was 'hunting'. I had a lot of fun driving my So2R. The IC-7000 and the Ftdx1200 supported without problems. Unlike other years, the amount of wpx was very close to the total number of contacts. In next competitions try to play with assisted mode. I am still in debt for not being able to improve the 40-meter antenna. A rigid dipole with linear loads does not help much

DK7HASO QRP 20MK3/10, 5 watt spiderbeam, lambda/4 vertical Thanks to the organizers for the contest and all who dug my qrp sigs out of the noise. This time only a single band entry due to high noise on the low bands. Nevertheless, enjoyed this endeavour with some great opening to the entire US on Friday night and some nice European activity. However, a little bit boring for a qrp stn being only active on a single band
DK7OGSO QRP ALLPoor propagation for 5W into a stealth dipole in the attic
DK8ZZSA HP 40MCQ WPX CW is over Assisted SO 40m HP, T/S @,DK8ZZ Well, thanks to all for QSOs. CONDX were ok, didn't expect 1600+ QSOs are possible with simple GP antenna. Congrats to I2IFT, it was a nice race on contestonlinescore. Had some issues during the contest: - cqcontest online scoring bugged and freezed DXLog. Quickly found the problem, moved to contestonlinescore - using VE7CC cluster for years. Somehow, despite there was no filters on, I didn't received all skimmer spots. I really don't know what's happened, changed cluster on Saturday around 22z, but I guess due VE7CC Cluster I've lost at least 30 MTPL and numerous US/VE stations first night, so 4M+ was possible. - Sunday evening had some problems with Flexradio, after TXing there was either no RX, or MOX was still red (Maestro). Sometimes, after several seconds was ok, but, I've to reset Flex 3 or 4 times. Not sure where was the problem, Flex or Maestro. This was my first serious Contest with Flexradio. Just two words: fantastic radio. Flexradio 6600 + Maestro ACOM 1000 Spiderbeam pole 12.5m, L/4 GP DXLog 73s, DK8ZZ
