MakrLOTWhen Contest (Makrothen with LOTW in the middle)
For the first time in a long time, we finally got some reasonably good
band condix for a contest weekend. The 20m opening to Europe on Saturday

40 meter dipole up 50 feet
20 meter VE7CA wire beam pointed East up 25 feet
15 meter dipole up 20 feet
Software: N1MM + MMTTY - loved it
CU in JARTS next weekend
