FT-2000, 1kW KT34XA @ 20m 40m: vertical 80, 160m: dipoles @ 18m beverage 110m long to NW Win-Test 3.23.0 My first experience with the Beverage antenna. I did not expect that this antenna performs so well. I finished to build up the antenna two hours before the beginning of the contest, so I needed more sleep during the contest as I have been planned. But I really enjoyed while running NA pile-up on otherwise noisy and crowded 40/80m bands. I missed NE beverage, it was hard to work JA (as always). The S59ABC contest location is on the top of the hill and there is no place to build up 160m Beverage (unfortunately). My another first experience is with DX-cluster. I have never connected any logging program with the DX-cluster because there was no internet access till now. Win-test is excellent tool. I had the complete control of what is going on the bands during the contest. With few mouse cliks I can decide if it is time to change the band, to leave the running mode and start s/p, so the another RIG/antenna/BPF/etc is not needed any more (and there is no another RIG). I finished the contest on 80m in s/p mode with 90 point and click QSO during last hour (I did not touch the VFO, on the keyboard I was pressing only ins in plus keys). Assisted categrory is really fun. At the end I made 500 less QSO than last year but I have better score (300.000 more points). I have never tried to make any EU run. But due to bad weather (heavy static) on the Sunday afternoon it was almost impossible to make any US run. 73 Marko S51DS
