Another terrific time on the bands this time as an Assisted High Power
operation after doing the same some 20 years ago at VU2MTT where we had a
mono bander on 20m and 2-el monobander on 15m. Relatively this operation
only wires netted about the same number of QSOs but 700K more points.
The bands were pretty good and this year I thought 20m was really quite good
compared to last year when I made over 3000 Qs. However, not having the beam
due to ongoing house move and new construction meant I had to quickly whip
the wire antennas couple of days before the contest.
I had a hectic three weeks at work before the contest and decided to take it
easy in the Assisted category with a few breaks in between. Wanted to do
in a weekend on atleast 4 bands but was successful only on two (20 & 15m).
Should have pushed a bit more on 10 & 40m.
Made one single run on 80m but stopped after 30-40 QSOs because of the new
non-stop calling trend which seemed to have caught on a lot in this
had to send the call of the other 3-4 times at time to get through each QSO
because stations were not stopping calling until they heard only their call
sign go back.
Hope to see you all from my new QTH next year with better antennas.
Thanks to all for the wonderful QSOs, each one was enjoyable and special.
