That was fun! Had planned a one night operation but came home early from out of town. Started at 0041z Friday night. Was pleasantly surprised to hear Eu on my first pass thru the band. Best Eu condx for me were the 01 and 02z hours the first night and then sporadic dx thru til 0630z when a lone F called in. The second night was similar although the peak for dx was 05-06-07z hours. Several Russians the first night, 2nd night more towards Scandinavia and northern Eu. Ended up with ~120 5pt qsos. Didn't get up for the morning either day. Missed AK, PAC, PR and NT. First operation with HP at this station, used recently acquired LK-500 following the TS590sg. TX ant is a 45' vertical L, RX via a NE Bev and a W Bev, both ~450' long. My usual mode on 160 is to listen on the TX antenna and switch to the Bevs as needed. This time I listened exclusively on one Bev or the other. Probably missed a few callers that way, sorry if I didn't hear you. See you all in month in the Stew. greg/na8v
