My first serious effort with SunSDR MB1 TRX as a main radio and my old IC756 as a second. Because of some technical issues I had to swap them and use MB1 as secondary. But because of the fact that I was 95% S&Ping almost nothing was changed. The MB1 is excellent - just a different class. For serious contest use it needs some "tuning" of the SW (my opinion) but developers are quite listening to my comments so I believe that for the next contest it will be usable for me as a main radio. There was written many stories about horrible CONDX on second day - it's tangled my stratedy too. Just one sentence - on Sunday on 20m I heard just around 20 US/VE stations but got through 5 only - the same on 40m on Sunday morning and the same before the end of the contest... But finally I am quite glad with the result. Thanks to all who heard my call and SN. RIG: SunSDR MB1 + IC756, microHAM MK2R+, Station masters, Stack master, switches... ANT: 3el tribander ECO @ 19m, stack of SpiderBeams @ 17+25m, 2-el Quad for 40m @ 25m, Inv. V for 40/80/160m @ 19m SW: N1MM+
