Once again a great fun @IQ1RY! And as usual the station work great, with no
hardware problem during the contest! And as usual no contest can be made
without the station setup of Flavio IK1RQT and Flavio IK1SPR and the logistic
and the time spent by Renato I1BEP.
Thanks to Albarto IV3BSY and Nicola IV3CWB that have made a 5 hours car travel
to come to operate here. This time we also have some novice operating this
contest: Alessandro IW1ROR and Salvatore IZ1PLH made they first running QSO
during a CQ contest @IQ1RY.
The first plan was to make a M2 but then the local op were all not fulltime so
at the end we decide to enter on MS and this was the rigth choice since ur
guest operator were forced to leave earlier than expected.
Band condition on high band were really incredible: 10m were open almost until
21z with really strong, 15m as well on a good shape but with not so many people
and 20m open for all day long with incredible signal for all nigth from US. On
the other side on 40m and 80m there were few people and we have some problem
to find a running frequency.
About the call: IY1GMS is a special callsign to mark the 100th anniversary of
the appointment of Guglielmo Marconi Life Senator of the Kingdom of Italy,
December 30, 1914. It will be active until 31 December 2014.
I think we will remember this contest for a while but we cannot wait until the
See you during the ARI DX contest on 3/4 May!
Filippo IZ1LBG (and all IQ1RY team)
