At the beginning I was thinking to do a multi 2 but this was not possible for several reasons. I worked very hard to setup the station. I put pass band high power filters and stubs on the both radios. A lot of switching work with the bandecoders and antenna switches. An attempt to repair the antenna rotator of the main tower failed. I did the contest with the C31XR and the XM240 pointed all the time at 90 degrees full west. Otherwise everything worked very well during the contest. I stayed 40 hours on the chair and I took two breaks for a total of 8 hours. the 10m and 160m were disappointing as expected. The propagation was very average. there is now a lot of South American's station in the contest and it is very good. the SO2R is really great. Here is the material used: RADIO 1: FTDX3000 RADIO 2: FT 1000MARK V MICROHAM U2R OMPOWER 2500HF ALPHA 8410 DUNESTAR LPF 600 YU1CF HPF with BANDECODER III OK2CZ and UA2FZ ANTENNA SWITCHES C31XR fixed to the west XM240 fixed to the west Spiderbeam INV L 160M INV V 80M Long wire 240m in the neighboring cemetery HF2V @ 10m with 4 radians hanging. I spent a very good week-end. we are lucky to do the best hobby of the Universe. Thank you to all of you. best 73 see you next time. I am back to the job Laurent FM5BH CW for ever...
