Was only on from 2200 - 0100Z and from 0500 - 0700Z. The 0500 - 0700Z EU pre-sunrise openings was one of the top 10 best 160 EU runs I have had from this station. 200Qs in 2 hours with 124 EU stations calling in. Signal strengths all over the map - from noise floor (1000 ft terminated EU bev) to true S9 on the meter. The G, F, DL stations were especially loud as real sunrise was within 30 - 60 mins. Best DX was KH6LC at 8041km (the only PAC/Asia station heard) and RW7K at 7876km - a true S7 at his sunrise as he called in at 0519Z. It was really fun for those 2 hours. Using a 2 el T top phased array to EU. Not sure how many people have read the rules in this contest regarding the use of a remote receiver. Its allowed if within 100km of the TX site. There is someone writing the rules that has no idea about the use of such an advantage with SO2R. The rule needs to be clarified. Of course just receiving from one antenna 100km away makes in band SO2R easy. There is no need to use the local site receiver to implement SO2R. You could literally listen to your own transmitted signal on channel one and have a QRM free receiver to tune with on channel two - all from the remote receiver. I think this whole idea of allowing remote receivers in 160M contest is a bad idea. If you can set up a great receiving location with remote access, then you can build a small hut and operate the contest from there. That's my opinion anyway. 73 & HNY Ed N1UR
