This was a dry run for the CQWW CW which is my favourite to see how band
conditions are at the current Sun spot low. Running a barefoot IC-746PRO and
the tiny FOrce 12 Sigma-5 vertical dipole on my roof. The antenna works well,
as I was able to work every one I called and punched through several pileups in
less than 3 calls.

99% was S&P, with a very few CQs. Highlights were being called by VE6JY on one
of my very few CQs on 20M, the very nice opening into Europe on 10M, big sigs
out of South America on 15 & 10M, hearing VK9AA crunching the band on 15M, and
the nice multipliers flowing out of Africa. I could CQ on 10M and find new
multipliers out of EU, Far East & Africa!!!

Limited operating time, no antenna for 40/80M due to space restriction meant
fewer QSOs and zones. It was good to hear many familiar calls out of the past
as I have been off air 8 years and back only a couple of months ago. Will hope
to see many of you in the CW section in November.

Any one have an idea for a space limited magic antenna for 40/80M ?!!!  :)
