As usual and since 10 years, I travelled from Brussels to County Tipperary to erect my antenna park on top of a windy hill. This year, just a week after Ophelia storm, the weather was better and I enjoyed spending 4 days in the fields to raise a lighter antenna park than usual as my antenna trailer was still stuck in the mud due to the past weather conditions. The fields were so wet than each step was followed by a "splash" and sometimes I've had cow mud up to my socks. Just after my arrival in Ireland, my PC crashed and I had to buy a new one but here the keyboards are QWERTY and not AZERTY, what an additional challenge also but the main point is that I lost all my usual software. During the contest, I experienced a decrease of sun activity as well as a decrease of "Tropical" activity. I am sure that we are enjoining the 10 last years of good Ham radio contest and I plan in the short future to visit engineering universities and high schools to motivate students to join us. 73 from Olivier.
