IC-765 Alpha 87A 4-sqaure sloping dipole array (K8UR style) from 100' tower. First time in 12 years that I haven't been on the DX side of the pileup....had to relearn sending 5nn04. :-) This was a good year to be on the low bands! From time to time the band would shift from good to very good to really, really good. Lots of nice signals. A ton of northern EU who are often shut out. JH1OGC was very prominent for hours at a time. Only two zones heard that I didn't work: z17 (UN4L had a nice signal) and z22 (8Q7DV calling mults.) RW4PL had a really nice long path signal Sunday morning. 23 zones and 93 countries after the first 12 hours! The only lowlight was a local noise source that appeared Saturday afternoon and persisted for the first few hours of darkness. Condx were such that many signals were stronger but it undoubtedly cost a few QSOs and at least one mult. Otherwise it was mostly highlights! Kudos to the guys who ID frequently (who also are almost always the high-scoring types.) Without cluster spots to assist, it's an execise in patience sometimes with very strong local stations calling just as the mystery DX sends his call after 5 you wait another 5 minutes.... Hope to be back on the DX side again next year. Thanks for the QSOs! 73, Mike K9NW
