3250 QSOs first day with good low band mults, but high bands' mults were
very low. At least all antennas were working this time - CW 160 m was
not connected to coax (4 QSOs with coax and 300w, HI), 40 m yagi was
not working first night - bad connector etc.
Good pile ups, but got pissed of with EUs again - calling non stop
without listening. Somebody should take some action, maybe local clubs
and magazines to teach EUs how to participate in pile ups. This is
tipical 75m list operation - calling without listening to whom MC
replied. 15 metres produced best personnal rates again - 359/hour on
phone and 241/hour on cw. Best 10 minutes was 46/10 min (276/hour), so
my best hour was not much behind. Used QRATE to check best rates.
Spent more time on Sunday working multipliers because first 24 hours was
owfull - only 50 DXCC on 15/20 and 2 or 3 on 10m.
Nice surprise hearing DK3GI on 10m on Sunday and working many zone 14
EUs with a few Italians (IQ4A was first, of course) Wonder how they find
ever DX station so fast. My goal was 8 M points, but overslept it - had
3,2 hours off (compared to 8 hours on Phone), maybe enough for a few
multipliers from the east and 0.5 M points. It was fun, and had power
failure only one time, almost impossible for HH.
The only failure was my K1EA interface, but luckilly had another one.
Thanks to everybody for working me and QSL route, as for all of my
operations, is 9A2AJ.
