After beeing to Liechtenstein for the ARRL CW this year, DK4YJ and me decided to return to HB0 for the CQWW CW. Due to space restrictions at our QTH we decided to do SOSB 40m and SOSB 20m. Located at the very steep rise from the Rhine valley at abt. 1250m asl, the QTH has a clear shot to the West but high montains to the East. The original plan was to do a SOSB 80 entry. Due to a very loud and constant noise level during the two nights before the contest, I decided it would be a better idea to switch to 20m. Therefore the only antenna I could use was a simple vertical @ 7m that we have taken with us as a spare. Because of the high mountains to the East, it was pretty hard to work stations from Asia in the mornings with this limited antenna setup. Therefore zone 19,23,24,28 and 29 and some easy Asian DXCC mults are missing. Fortunately there was a nice long path opening into JA on Sunday morning and after a couple of seconds there was a tremendous pile-up of JAs on my frequency. They disappeared in the noise as quick as they showed up. Another highlight was to work many stations on the West Coast with excellent signals, among them friends of mine like N6MJ, N0AX and W7VJ. It was a great experience to not only be called from rare DX stations we normally hunt (like 3X5A, HC8N) but also to get QSY request from them ;-) Thanks for all the QSOs and the patience when it took longer due to heavy inter-station interference at our location. All QSOs of this acitivity will be confirmed automatically via the bureau. Pictures and logsearch available at CU in the next one (then with better antenna). Chris DK9TN
