My 4th "BERU" so slowly getting the hang of it! Main lesson learned from the
previous events was to spend more time on 14 and 7 MHz and less on 3.5 to get a
greater variety of contacts (and more 25 point Qs). Also regularly switched
between bands to check for openings. Around 19 hours at the rig although there
was a dead zone with no QSOs from 0350 to 0600 after I switched off for a
couple of hours. The wet string single element antenna farm comprised a 30m
inverted V doublet, sloping dipole cut for 24MHz (used on 21 and 28) and a 10m
wire vertical (quarter wave on 7Mhz). IC756 ProIII with MFJ-993B auto-tuner. A
very enjoyable and relaxed weekend for the small station as usual and good to
get a few new band slots.
