Lots of fun - running Iota and RU WW at the same time, switching from contest
when the rate starts dropping...
10m is dead here - no beam antenna makes the high bands anyway very very
difficult here, running 100wtts barefoot...
15m signals weak also, but surely at our clubstation PI4COM, it would be
20...30dB stronger, hi !
20m was the band to be, as usual in RTTY contests
40m was nice on the last evening - incredible to work VE9DX very very early at
22:56 UTC... his 50wtts with vertical doing an amazing job !!!
YB0AI was loud on 40m as well !
80m - unfortunately the activity was low. Difficult to make skeds for me, as I
have too weak signal on the high bands... Tried to look as often as possible,
whether I could hear some DX... but this time without success...

No zone 3 station came through, except AC7VF with weak fluttering 20m signal
here on my simple L-antenna (11m vertical plus 15m orizontal wire with 40
radials)... how he could manage to copy my signal in the first try ???
Especially some US-stations I found must have really excellent RX-equipment, as
I could work them, even I could barely here them on my side... With my 100wtts
and a wire ant, I must have been even weaker on their side...

I did not partissipate in the first night. Also I fell to sleep the second night
from 02:00Uutc... but it's hobby, isn;t it... nevertheless lot's of fun and a
reasonable score for my simple conditions here at extremely dense home QTH close
to Amsterdam...
