I only threw in a few hours here and there, just to play around and give out
some points.
After 3 hours I realized that stations West of me came in stronger and I heard
almost nothing from Europe....then I noticed that the strong winds we had a few
days ago, blew my beam (that still has a broken/stuck rotor) so that it was
pointing West and the rotor controller was pointing at 30 degrees.
Go figure... no wonder why I heard no Europe, the beam was pointing straight
I managed to nudge the beam back to the north east and of course that helped a
lot to hear Stateside but by then Europe was long gone. I can't wait to have a
working rotor and new beam, hard to work seriously with broken equipment, still
fun to play in my favorite mode, on a cold wet Saturday. I will try a more
serious effort when all the equipment works again. For those who had the
patience to repeat call/ Nr over and over again, I thank you, because I could
not turn the beam to point at you, and it was sometimes tough to pull out a
station on the side or back of the beam.  Thanks for all the QSO's, always nice
to hear those familiar callsigns again that I run in to almost every contest.
best 73/88s to all and CU in the next contest. Tiny, KT6YL
