I was practically dead by Friday afternoon after seven days of non-stop work
and travel abroad and domestically from morning til evening, so a serious
SOAB SO2R effort was not feasible. CQWW CW is the king of them all in my
book, though, so participation was a must. Went for the 160m OH record.
Conditions during the first night were nice, but it appeared to be downhill
from there. Greyline openings seemed all but absent on both mornings, and I
really struggled with some "normal" multipliers. Nonetheless I managed to
work some nice DX, getting people like C5A, HI3A, and Z24EA to answer my CQ.
S&P gems included HD2M and VQ9LA. The 160m slopers seem to be working.
A lot of weekend work the past autumn has been done @OH4A to change/move
cabling and equipment to a new hamshack. This was the first entry from the
new shack, and compared to the old one it is luxury! Didn't even have to
wear woolen stockings although it was -15C outside :) Station automation
improvements are currently in the pipeline, so we should be tougher than
ever by next year.
Thanks to all for the QSOs and thanks to Jukka OH6LI and Merja for lending
me the summer cottage for another weekend.
