Home obligations couldn't let me be part of TM0HQ 20m CW team, so I did a "last
minute" effort from our club station F6KAR. And what an experience!

Arrived at the club 2 hours before the contest and I had to setup the station
for so2r and the brand new version of wintest 4. The 80m dipole was almost flat
on the ground and the 2nd beam had high SWR on 20-15-10 probably suffering from
the lawnmower passing over the coax cable. Decided to fix the dipole after the
first couple of hours of the contest.

Overall, excellent participation to keep me stuck on the chair all the time
when I wasn't fixing stuff in the station. Couldn't get a run with US on 20m
but 40m good runs throughout the whole night. Sunday morning 10m and 15m open
with strong EU signals with a couple of hours at > 180 Q/h rate on ssb.

The IARU championship is perhaps the only contest that the use of spotting
networks is not permitted for mono-ops. If it stays like that in the future, it
will very likely serve to remind the younger generations how it was contesting
at the pre cluster/skimmer era :-) 

Thanks to all the contest gangs for this great weekend. See you at the next
one, EUHF
