First of all, thanks to all of you responding to our calls ! Thank you for a lot of QSOs and a lot of nice mults. Wow, this was fun ! Not so much because of the conditions or the result, but rather because we achieved the biggest ever Multi-Multi operation from Norway. We could gather most of the experienced operators from LA3Z/LN3Z and LA9Z/LN9Z in addition to the established operators from LA8W/LN8W and a couple of newcomers at our place. What a team !!! Thank you so much for joining !!! And what an effort prior to the contest to put up new antennas despite snow, ice rain and wind ! Most important was an additional RX 4-Square for 80m in addition to the one we got prior to the SSB leg. Tt sure worked well on 80m as well. And some of the guys quickly erected a quarter wave vertical for 40m just as dusk appeared on Friday. This also showed important for us. Thank you so much for the hard work !!! So this was first time ever in Norway to have a station with 6 individual monoband setups. The rigs are not too bad, equipment collected from old LA8W/LN8W and LA9Z/LN9Z as well as a few new Acquisitions, mostly Elecraft K3S and K3's but also one Orion-II. Linears are still several brands, mostly manual tune, but also a couple auto tune linears. Not so much problems with manual tume linears when we have monoband setups, but still, we look forward to when we can operate with all stations equal. The team was just tremendous, extremely good CW operators with a lot of experience in contesting. This was really, really fun ! And it's just the start... Looking forward to the next big contest 73 de Roy / LA5KO
