Very boring propagation !
10m wasn't really opened...
160m qsos are 90% in s&p hard to run with 100w :-)
Think the k level = 4 didn't helped a lot!
Friends in eastern /south eu may have better score!

Thanks all for qsos!
See you now in boths cq ww

Sadly, I couldn't tune mu 80m dipole to 160m so I couldn't work there.

Maybe next time,

everything went fantastic!
Thanks to all who called!

Together with LY2FN put on YAGI tower few wires to simulate dipole, hi.
Highest point 9m , lowest 1m.

Thanks to SCC for this fine contest! It's allways fun!

QRN on 40 and down....hard to work anything there... without the DHDL i wouldnt
do anything on the lower bands...

Almost no 28 and 21, spent lots of time to get any qso and mult's there and so
14 and 7 didnt get enough time. AS usual only N-S propagation with LY stations
heard all contest on those bands...but hardly anyone else...

Congrats to all the competitors! I thank anyone that answered to my call and
the good guys who QSY'ed for me - you are great!

Hear you in the next one.

Not perfect conditions with a Slooper dipol for 14MHz (only band with Qrm less
than S9+20) @5m, from my work Qth in the middel of an industrial area in
Stockholm. Qrm at it's best S7-8, when the lights came on at 19.00 UTC it went
up to S9+20dB ... end of contest for this station ;)

But good fun for a couple of hours! Will be back next year, hopefully from home
Qth with much less Qrm and better antennas .. 73 all and Thnxs for points!

TNX for the qso's

Propagation this year on 10m - 15m is very bad very big aurora in 10m. Lost
many time for get mults on 10m with to hight spending time for it. In the
evening began to sparkle and thunderstorm for more us 1 hour but this did not
prevent intend to conclude the contest with very high QRN.

Used Equipment:

Used ICOM 775DSP only one radio with 2 x 1KW Amplifiers this test second
transceiver not used.

Antennas:

160m - Dipole
80m - Dipole
40m - 2el. Monoband Yagi
20m - 3el. Monoband Yagi and HyGain TH6-DXX Tribander

OH1TM/M   SSB Only LP   1,7162014-08-03 00:57:31
My 1st ever contest from car. I changed the QTH a couple of times during the
operation as I tried to find the best QTH. (Finally I ended back to the first
one). All the stations which were 59+30 or more in the S-meter heard me easily
but the others were harder to work. Next time I don't forget CW key home...
Thanks for the QSOs!

More a test of me and my station than a contest but it such a great contest
so really enjoyed the game!
Thunderstorms were a big handicap. Had to stop after a few minutes in the
contest as it came too close. When it was over, my wife who was on a biking
tour,
called me to pick her up as she got also into the heavy storm.
I found here sheltering under an umbrella and brought her home safely.
I will keep on training my CW and see you all next year!

Wow what a fun. I just wanted to test the station preparation for WAE CW next
weekend, but rates didnĀ't drop, so I couldnĀ't resist to play til the end.
In the best low band times McMurphy took my PA out of service. Unfortunately
the change to a spare one took some 45 minutes...

Aurora the night before and also in afternoon in contest made the HF spectrum
small to begin with. 20m was in good shape as usual in such conditions.
10m was disappointing, had a small Es opening in beginning of contest to SE,
with 12 LY in log and a few others. 15m was a little better open but like s1-s3
signals beaming South with the stack. Had setup an inband radio with a vertical
but was useless on 10 and 15m, did not hear any signals expect SJ2W ;-)
Lower bands worked ok, but since the beverages were not connected had some
rx-problems on 160m on the vertical because of thunder crashes so was some
repeats. Think others also had problems with noise, because in S&P many
came back with: SP2W, DJ2W, SW2W, S12W, SO2W, S52W and a few other combinations
I dont remember.
Goal was to try beat own SM record from 2011, but was impossible because of
lack of mults on 10 and 15m.

Thanks for QSOs, and thanks to Mike for putting the station in order!

Starting with DP4M from the same station. DP4M gets the better bands. Was only
testing the technics, switches ect. Many thunderstorms and statics made it very
difficult to hear other stations. but over all... it was fun!
 
LI3C(LA9DFA)   Mixed HP   248,3252014-08-03 02:35:18

Hope for better condx next time.

Low bands noise infested with all the thunderstorms over EU.
160 sounded like sheet metal being hammered on around your ears. Ouch!
Ten meters bad, fifteen not great.

It's all I can do against the big boys with big toys. But given the propagation
I never thought to achieve a score this high. It was hard to keep the rate at
100/hr. But it averaged nicely.

VERY nice contest as always.

OH2PM   CW Only HP   378,0562014-08-03 13:32:41
I tried to catch a reasonable multiplier on 10 and 15. Most of the signals were
so weak that I could not copy them in the summer time QRN. Wasted a lot of
time.
I have 30 multipliers and 200 QSOs less than last year, that is a lot. I should
have followed during the week how conditions developed.

A great fun in any way. Congratulations to those who picked up right strategy
and made a decent score.

Thanks for the QSOs and see you again in SAC CW.

The conditions were marginal in the upper bands. The time I spent there to rise
the multiplier count definitely had a negative effect on the total qso number.
80/160 m were very noisy in the city, more than half of contacts there being
S&P q's. Somehow, I managed to miss about 100 q's in 40m.

Thanks to SJ2W, LZ8E, IQ2CJ, R7AB, UC7A, IK2NCJ and others who submitted their
real time scores, we had an entertaining competition on cqcontest.net. It is
really fun to watch it live.

I have to acknowledge Cornel YO4NA, who took care of preparing the station and
making everything ready so I can just plug and play remotely from 250 km away

Overall not great condx but WX was nice so time allocated to this contest over

much time wasted in the start on 10m so the contest was already over before it
had even started. Then I just had a bit of fun for the rest of the contest.

First thanks to all IQ1RY team to let me use the station! All equipment work
fine and no problem during the 12 hour of the contest!

Contest start really slow the first 5 hours expecially the 2nd, the 3rd and the
4th one! Long propagation on 20m and really weak signal on 10m 15m and 20m. Once
again this year I spend too much time on 10m trying to work as many mult as
possible and try to reduce the disadvantage from 9A5K but without any success.
Incredible condition here on 160m with strong signal and I was working without
any receiving antenna and with heavy storm in the area.

Nice competition on cqcontest.net, but once again very few takers! Thanks to
the one publishing their score online!

Thanks very much for all QSO! See you the next one!

Very high QRN on high bands because of local thunderstorms. Almost no station
heard on yagis. I must use K9AY even for 20-15-10 mts reception. Sorry if I
couldn't hear someone. Only in the evening reduced for acceptable level the
QRN. Thanks for QSO's.
