After missing last year's CQWW contests because log-house construction project
it was nice to be with you again.
Cndx were poor as usual, but Saturday had nice surprise in addition that big
aurora, because there was a short 15m opening to USA:
("Riding on the aurora") this was first time after 3 years that I noticed that
the old 15m 6/6 was working normally after moved 200ft nearer USA from the
Eastern ridge.
At the beginning I was testing the SO2R but because no band-pass filters on
radios it was difficult to spot under s9 signals - also the "hash" from radio1
was not pleasant to listen.
So I was carried by the contest and mostly used radio1.
Ezmaster and Win-Test worked flawlesslly through the contest.
Somehow time to time I was able to push some button on the lower right when
logging the QSO and Win-test thought that I want to jump 10 QSOs earlier on the
log - took time slowly to recover on the normal logging area..
Two hour nap between Sat and Sun and a shower during contest was refreshing but
took some time from the radio -so did warming pizzas etc.
This time I started contest with a rest and did not make any antenna work and
repairs just before and during the contest and that was quite relaxing.
Thanks for qsos and sorry if I came too near your frequencies with my old
FT-1000D with roofing filter and 250Hz filter - well, just have to check if
previous owner has done that click modification...
