Interesting weekend. I was guest operating OH2BO's station while OH1WZ was
operating my homestation.My intention was to see how one can perform with a
tribader and wire antennas in SAC.
It was proven that a 3-bander and wires are sufficient set up for this
contests.This should be a very encouraging result for those who hesitate to
participate due to lack of two-way beaming, stacks, 40m beam, SO2R etc.
Unfortunately on Sunday morning when I first time tuned to 15m the SWR went sky
high. Two days later we found that moisture and dirt had damaged 15m section
insulators of the beam feed element.
Whatif: I am tenpted to speculate that without the antenna damage, the 3-bander
and wires station would have been a serious challeger for the top three station
with a 1M plus score. This is an other good piece of news for those who have a
moderate set-up. 
Cu in SAC next year again.
