Hello all fellow contesters,
Like last year it is very likely that I will spend my holiday in
It will be around the ARRL CW contest. (What a pity HI)
(Very very maybe also during the SSB one)
I have some plans to run it from a top of a mountain with nothing
between USA and antenna then air. (What a pity again !)
Available > 6 element monoband beam for 20 meter.
Cushcraft A3S triband beam
Vertical for 40 and dipoles for lower bands.
I think it is very hard for me to decide how to run it.
Single operator multi or single band. (wich band ?)
Any suggestions or experience ?
I will also try to get a license for 160 meter this year. (This is not
allowed with a 9G5 call) only I remember the static problem in receiving.
On the place where I will stay out of the contest a beverage is not possible.
I now a lot of you have been in Africa. How did you solve this problem ?
Most trouble on 80 and 160 meter.
Please any suggestions direct to my email adress Thanks very much.

ps I'm very happy there is no dx cluster in Ghana so that discussion
is closed HI.

Amen. Can we move on now?

Subject: October Asia-Pacific Sprint date
The date of the next running of the Asia-Pacific Sprint has been published
by various sources on two different dates. The autumn event should be held
on the third Saturday of October, which is 19 October. Some sources (CQ
Contest, QST, NCJ) give a date of 12 October, which is incorrect.
Please note that the correct date is 19 October. See you then!
