Despite a small lull in my contesting activity over the last 3 years, I was looking forward to this one for the last month or so especially as my friend 5B4XF had recently installed new antennas and I was keen to try them out. I was also hoping to install my own antenna at the top of my tower even though I wasnt planning to use it for the contest. True to my regular tradition of doing antenna work of the Friday before the contest, I decided to spend all of Thursday and Friday building the antenna, and putting it up on Friday afternoon! Perhaps slightly more tired than what I had hoped for, I managed to get 3.5 hours sleep before the start of the contest. I kept complexity to a minimum by only using SO1R style of operation. I had constant pile-ups from the start and I definitely felt louder than last year with the new antennas. The only issue was that I felt tired after about 22 hours of operation and took out time to nap on 4 occasions operating a total 43.6 hours only. Despite the simplicity of my operation I managed a personal record qso number but at a very mediocre multiplier score. I am happy with the final score and really enjoyed the conest. Thanks to everyone for the QSOs and congratulations to the superhuman operators for their amazing scores. I am of course extremely grateful to Paris 5B4XF and XYL for hosting me and allowing me to operate his superb station. CU next year! 73s Marios
