Contest 'achievements'

* local electricity blackout for couple hours just after the start, so our
contesting vivacity felt down immediately
* Both of us had to work full day before the test, no time to take a nap
before competition.
* blister on my tongue because voice keyer became out of order. We are CW
op`s and SSB is just for fun so skin on my tongue is thiner than permanent
SSB ops have. Seems to be they have equally thick skin as on their tongues
as on their heelpieces
* multiplier position`s PA burned. It was like a new year`s fireworks with
special sound and fume effects. Very breathtaking for kids but our second
position became unusable. That accident for sure affected our multi score
besides our contesting vivacity like a communist party jumped somewhere
underground and didn`t return back up to the end of competition :)
* rooter was making so big noise that it was impossible to operate lowbands
while internet connection was on. We did lowbands 160-40 without cluster
* totaly 40 hours of operating utilizing only 3 el 3-bander & wires for
running station, and FD4 for multipliers until equipment burned. A bit
similar to WRTC style only high power was used.

Funy part of contesting
