I used a simple temporary almost invisible antenna at my city QTH, a quarter wave Inverted U (sort of) from a thin wire going around the house to max height of 13m partly zig-zagged and end fed against a few radials. It worked to the west and helped even to a few DX QSOs (NA) however it did not work to the east (probably due to screening from the house). So I was not able to reach a number of not too distant UA and YO stations and mults from the east and south-east. Interesting fact was that some of the stations that did not hear me when I was calling them later responded to my CQ. After the contest I found that I was never spotted on the DX cluster so maybe a result of being caught by skimmers? I had fun and thanks for the QSOs everyone. 73 OK1CZ
