It's my first try with this contest but I can't say that we have mad
in about 5 hours (till now ;-) ) 50 Contacts with 3 Continents on 3 Band
the only poor thing is my Antenne : only 5 m Longwire with MTFT as INV-V under
Rooftop in about 15m asl. running 50W from TS-50.
So hope to hear anyone else tomorrow between F1-Qualifing and the Race or after
the Race...... ;-))
