The bands were in the great shape! Even 160m didn't sound as bad as last year. I
was a bit unlucky with multipliers on 40m, but otherwise smooth, relaxing
operating in the very hot ham shack.

Thanks for all the QSOs, it was a great party with many old and some new
friends! First 6 hours were quite slow as usual (although 10/15m condx were
quite good), then the good rates on the lowbands started.

Missed some very easy mults, didn't move much, etc., the usual excuses.

See you in WAE CW next weekend from ZS6, while the boys here at DL1A will do
their usual M/S.

Thank you for the QSOs!

Rig: Icom 756Pro2, 100W

Antennas:
10m: 2 ele Moxon
15m, 20m: InvV
160m, 80m, 40m: single T shape vertical + automatic coupler + 3 radials

Hoped for 10m, but condx not too good there or did not catch the right moment.
The beginning did not seem too promising, probably due to the geomagnetic
storm, so even spend some time to work ST0R on 10m band.
But finished better than last year, because this year had some antenna on low
bands to collect some multipliers there.
Spiderpole, which I use to support low band antenna, is a bit broken after IOTA
adventures (waiting for 2 spare sections) and it was windy here, so had to work
with short version on low bands (about 7-8 m vertical part).

Singelop 1 radio, because Mike was working on antenna switches, so had to
change
antennas manually out in the barn so was some timeconsuming activity to change
bands.

TNX to Mike SM2WMV letting me operate this one.

Hi everybody!

It was again fun with you. Thanks for the contacts and your fine CW skills!

Use of spotting assistance have advanced my claimed score to 7,5% points (14
mults) - even I felt that 10/15 worked this year something better than the last
one. Best hour rate was only 128 Q while peaks with 250 Q/h and up were great.
Still I did something wrong on 20m!(?) The rain static was horrible here during
last 3 hours, except 15 minutes to the end.

DJ1YFK was able to neutralize my advantage of 50Q and to overbeat me this year.
GRATULOR FABIAN!

Great combat of EU edging countries. Congratulations on the fine scores guys!

See you in QTC's next weekend, somewhere from Balkans.

Good contest but bad day.
Just before the start I found that remote antenna switch is broken.
That meant that I couldn't use 6 el yagi for 20/15/10 and 3 el on 40 and at my
disposal left me only a backup antenna high bands.
Later, when the time came to go on 160, I realized that something hapened also
with 160 GP. In addition to all, two PA and 1 PC have been broken.
So, last hour I just walked on 160 with 100 watts and wire@6 meters.
I'm lucky guy but not on that day :)

I expected dead bands after 3 Sun flares but all six were lively! Low power was
disadvantage only on 160 m where I missed few easy mults. S&P with internet CW
Skimmer spots provided by S50ARX is fun. I'd have used paddle more for moving
people but I am spoiled with N1MM Logger ESM mode.

It's a new contest site getting built these days nr Moscow with many things to
be done yet. Anyway, I was doing a first test drive.

Expected more stations on 10 and 15 m but looks they all were doing more CW
than SSB.

Murphy never sleeps.
Just before the contest I have to faced the fact, that the 14Mc upper yagi's
SWR was wrong, and the rotator of 21 yagi was out of order, so I had to work on
20/15 to fix USA direction. A day before everything was OK... Concening I missed
the two direction operation on 20m, the final result is not so bad.
Tanks for QSO's.

It was fun! I was expecting a lot worse propagation, but fortunately this time
it was a positive surprise. Unfortunately low bands were really noisy up here
and made things somewhat slow. So I'm a bit low on QSO total. On the other hand
200+ Q's on 10M is something I wasn't even dreaming of ;)

Thank you all for QSO's and congratulations for great scores.

Fun time as always. Condx on upper bands were changing from minute to minute so
it was like a matter of luck to be at the perfect spot at the time given.

Some issues in the very last two hours like weather and laptop breaks, but
other then that I cant really complain.

Awesome competition! Compliments to all!

Strongly was late on high bands, probably therefore I have a failure on 160 and
80... I used SO2R only for condx's check and for QSY multipliers. Rate was high
enough, and to work on search during RUN was impossible for my skill...

interesting competition to all. CU in WAE

Few power outages happen between 16-18z creating a lot of mess with automation,
SSB was finally lost at 18z and till the end it was only CW:)

My unplaned activity. I had to stay at home instead to be on Adriatic coast.
Summer is part of year when beverages usualy are not installed. Exception was
beverage to NE direction. I did not have time to install something to NW
direction. That is why I lost a nice number of QSOs&Mults on noisy 80 and 160m
bands.Sorry to all who called me, and not coppied by me.
Ejoyed in excellent contest, with great activity.

Maybe spent too much time on SSB. Using S50ARX skimmer cluster was also
unproductive, due GPRS link failures . I had to restart connection a few times
per hour. At that time were a lot of ? and AGNs :-(. 160m antena was just few
meters above ground. Score is a bit higher then expected. I left a lot of place
for set-up improvements for next EUHFC. TNX all for QSOs and organisers SCC for

I never did SSB-HP category in EUHFC, so I decided to give it a try.
Unfortunately the propagation was not the best on high bands. I was very
disappointed by poor condx on 15 and 10 m bands. I never managed a decent run
in those bands, although some EU signals were very loud. On the other hand the
lack of Rx antenna on 160 and 80 m lead to low number of QSO-s in those bands
too… But enough complaining, so thank you all for calling me and see you in
WAE-CW, next weekend. 73, Alex

The total number of QSO's is 1722, minus 9 dupes, minus 2 non-EU QSO's and the
number of valid QSO's equals 1711, which is exactly the same number as RA1A
has! :-)

10 meters conditions were a pleasant surprise. I ended up spending a lot of
time on 10 and actually I owe a big thanks for my 10 meters numbers to HA6VB
whom I asked to QSY from 15 to 10 meters quite late in the evening only to
discover that 10 was wide open.

Naturally, after spending that much time on 10 I was late to almost all the
other bands. 20 meters was especially scary - by the time I got to 20 CW around
19:00 Z I had there only 8 (!) QSO's - and the band sounded closed! I called CQ
on almost empty band and eventually managed to work somewhat decent number of
Q's, all of them with quite weak signals. At the end the only time I could
spare for 160 meters was the last 29 minutes of the contest and that of course
shows in the low multiplier count.

Another surprise - not that nice - was when I read DK6XZ's post and discovered
that using assistance was allowed this year. I didn't know that. Guess reading
the rules before contest would have helped ;-) I believe using packet and
skimmers could have easily added another 10 mults and maybe 50 or so QSO's,
pushing the total score over the 600k mark. I was using the second radio quite
actively looking for S&P Q's and overall I made around 150 second radio
contacts. Here the "point'n'shoot"-type of assistance of a skimmer or cluster
could have really helped.

Comparing my numbers with RA1A it looks like a rematch of the last WRTC. Our
QSO counts are equal and the difference in scores is less than 0.6%. It all
comes down to the log checking to decide which one of us will end up with
higher ranking. Still waiting for LY9A and perhaps some other high scorers to

Overall another positive experience with this contest that has become one of my
favourites. Lots of excellent CW-operators!

Thanks to all for the QSO's!

FT-1000MP + dipoles.

This year I did not intend to compete very seriously. I just set my goal of
1000 QSO using wire antennas and 100 W.
There was only 80m dipole antenna hanging up until late Friday evening and I
still had to do hard work on Saturday morning making 160m dipole from zero,
lifting up all 5 remaining wire antennas (some of them finaly got shape of Inv
Vee, some of slopers), drilling holes in the wall for bringing feedlines to
shack, making lot of soldering etc. Sure, I was short of time and started
contesting at only 12:23 without of any rig and antennas test. Shortly I've
discovered very high noise on high bands, especially on 20m (constant S9), but
there was no time to make any research to locate the source of it. I was
thinking that some water pomp or other similar devices at my hours or at my
neighbours may make this problem. I simply dived in to the Contest for the next
12.5 hours.
You can imagine my feeling on Sunday evening when I located the source of
the problem which costed me a number of QSO's and Mults on 20, 15 and 10M! The
small 5 Volts stabiliser in my SO2R box made all that nasty noise!

Some 24 hours before start of the Contest I've send message to Robert S57AW
which contained following words:
"For me is very sad to hear that cluster was allowed for SO. My opinion is very
strict - using of cluster, skimmers is the help from other persons and not
compatible with definition of Single Operator.
I guess this EU HF will be my last one. Sri. Only club competition and national
competition drives me to enter contest where packet is allowed for SO.
Same with RDXC. The next RDXC (2012) will be my last one. Decision is taken
already.-------------
Other contesters may have different opinion of course."

Sri, but my experience in this EU HF Championship just confirms my decision
I've made earlier.
We do not need to put up an aluminium or buy expensive radios to play computer
games.
Producers should think now of making radios without of tuning knob at all, I
think.

After 12 hours I spend looking at the computer screen following spots, I feel
myself very bad about the future of contesting. My eyes still burning and I'm
really in doubt of putting my Yagi's up.

Low band antennas where put up 2 hours before the contest.
160m antenna was repaired during contest on the fly.

I tried to move few mult's but not much interest on other side.
Will be so2r in the next one.

Nice CW activity and many great ops out there.

I have lost too many multipliers on 15/10m which were closed in our area.
Thanks for nice contest.

Antenna: W3DZZ, Rig: TX ->HomeMade QRP, RX -> DCR 40m, Pwr: 5 Watt(s. At first
it was hard work because it does not matter felt. But still very strong signals
on 40m stations At 80m it was even harder work. Worked at 5 watts on 40-80
meters I thought I'd give up everything then have 40 QSO's, but then still made
over the last year ...Yes, even unwound during the test bay cable from the
antenna (an extra piece of cable so as not to cut through the window, was
twisted into a small bay). I was told that it creates a delay line, but the
difference did not see ... The passage was a strange one. At night on 40m
rattled local stations

Fun! I wanted to spend more time on the contest, but anyway I enjoyed it a lot.
The upper bands have strong noise here and I was confortamble only on 40m.
Thanks for the QSO.

It was very nice contest as usually. I like it especially because the stations
with small antennas can compete with those big ones. I accepted the fact that
my position in the centre of the activity is big disadvantage on high bands,
but I can profit little bit on low bands. The "10 changes in hour" rule reduces
the advantage of SO2R, but it force me to think more and use different strategy.
Thanks to all for QSO! I am looking forward to the next year!

EA3KU   CW Only LP   246,3392011-08-11 10:28:26
I expended too much time on the higer bands specially on 21 mhz where the
conditions were not to good and consequently I lost a very precious time that
probably the most of the operations were on 40 meters.
I cant used the 12 hours provided for the contest. I was doing maintenance on
the antennas the days before the contest and I could not lift to full height
with my antenna tower at the began of the contest and I was doing throughout
the afternoon. That's a slow process that requires much effort.
Anyway I'm very happy with the result that I got in my category of SO LOW POWER
LP.
