Ian G3WVG and Nigel G3TXF travelled North for CQWW CW to operate as OX5AA from Greenland. With an outside temp of -22C (-8F) working on the antennas during the two days before the contest was an experience not to be forgotten. Stations who worked OX5AA on 160m should be particularly grateful to Ian G3WVG who installed a 160m inverted-L antenna at the top of a mast in unbelievably cold conditions. The shivvering greens of the Northern Lights on the day before the contest were a magnicent sight but caused us concern for the propagation. But eventually 160m and 80m both worked better than we had expected. Special thanks are due to Jesper OX3KQ for allowing us to use the OX2A clubstation and for his work in preparing antennas prior to the CQWW CW Contest operation. 73 - Nigel G3TXF and Ian G3WVG (Kangerlussuaq airport, west coast of Greenland)
