It was a great contest. I have never before enjoyed a single-band contest as much as at this time. Although single band operation can never be as fascinating and exciting as all band operation with the timing of band changes and multiplier transfers. Funny enough, at times I awoke accepting single band as my future after all those 50 years of contesting, hopefully it was just a nightmare. One thing has been again proven, you go 2500 km south and you do the same or even better with a roof top inverted V dipole than at home with a 3el full size yagi at 36m. It is raising a question whether there was any steel in the concrete because the dipole worked astoundingly well. However I was expecting at least 500 W-qsos insteand of some 200 tha are in the log. It is hard to say if the reason was in between of my ears or shorcome of the antenna. I heard a few more multipliers but could not hear in the qrm if they came back to me. During the second day I got only 19 new mutipliers and just half of the first day's qso count. Martti, OH2BH, who was operating 80m some 40 km away blaimed me for spending too much time in foam bath. (Envious, poor OM, he did not even have hot water in his QTH). Well, there are many ways of enjoying contestig, especially when you have pain in the legs after assisting your travel companion to get contest antenna up. In the beginning of the week the weather in souther Turkey by the Mediterranean was awfull, rain, storm and flashes of lightings. Towards the contest week end the WX improved, it was like the best summer days back home. Only for a short period I suffered from QRN created by a distaant thunderstorm. Thanks to all who called me and whom I could hear. See you in the next contest who knows from where. Pertti, OH2PM/OG2P operator of TC4X
