After good experience in 2006 from Pantelleria Island in M/M IH9P, I returned in African Italy zone 33, for the first time as SOSB 80m from IG9 Lampedusa Island. Setup Icom 751A, TL922, fiberglass vertical antenna 1/4 wave homemade, for RX two EWE directions NW-NE and one short beverages to N, contest Logging QARtest. Vy bad WX condition, before and during the contest, strong wind 45/55 nodes, during almost all the contest, they have penalized quite a bit the performance. Four hours before the start, my antenna was serius damaged by strong squall of wind and for the first 7 hours I used an Inverted V dipole, at 6 meters on the ground. Only saturday morning, I have been able to repair the vertical antenna, and then I begun to be really competitive with the good setup. Many thanks to everyone who called me during the contest. See you on next year! Tony IK1QBT/IG9X
