Great contest had to stop after 11 Hours due to technical issues.

I was testing the SO2R which in fact was only working as MULT TWO. Then I lost
my MULT and 80m antennas in string wind.

Anyway, was glad to give the MW (Wales) multiplier to the German stations.

Congrats to Germany for being chosen to be the host for the WRTC 2018 !

This has to be my favorite European contest, with so many German ops on all

Time was limited this weekend, so this is only my 2nd best showing in the WAG.

As usual, 10m produced the best rates and Q's, but it was not like last year -
that's for sure !

Lots of DL activity and reasonable propagation for 5 bands made for a fun
contest and likely some new records.

Very good conditions. Great activity.
KB1H   Multi-Op HP   192,0962014-10-19 08:10:42
Seemingly good activity from our German friends!

We used this contest for airing out the station and fixing broken things.

One of the (@*%^$*) TT Titans let the smoke out and had to put the TL922 in
line pending repair.

Replaced Station 2 Computer with Win 7.

Setup macros, filter switching, Network Rotor Control and DVKs across the
stations with N1MM+

Shot a line over with the Potato Gun and repaired the broken 1/2 of the 160m

Rinsed out Operating Position 6 and rid the room of the 'spider hammocks'.

Great contest, although the condx could have been better. The period from 1700Z
to 2000Z was slow. I think this was my first attempt at the WAG. Used WinTest
with the WAG_DX.DTA file which provided fills on the DOK numbers when a station
was logged.

Chasing the DOK mults was interesting. "T" and "L" proved
the most difficult to catch. Of my 811 Qsos, I only worked four different
statiions in each of "T" and "L". Missed DL8MAS on 20m in
the last half hour, and that cost me a DOK sweep on that band. ("T"
and "L" must be remote DOK's with low populations.)

Having not worked the WAG in the past, I found that some of the DOK numbers
were unexpected, such as: 40Q11, 50S38, 60C15,60WAE, CM13 WRTC and WSKM.

Stn: K3+KPA500 500w.
Ants: 2X Arrays 12L Yagi, M2 2L 40m yagi, inv vee on 80m. Pixel Mag loop for
low band rx.

I will definitely give the WAG a try in 2015. It is nice not having to move
the yagi during an entire contest!

QRV on Saturday afternoon only, switching between this and JARTS RTTY contest.

As soon as sunset, I saw lots of DL station start QSY to 20m from 15/10m but
signal from DL faded out very quickly.

Thanks to Will, K6ND for hosting us and he is always an integral part of our
multi-op, not just a pretty face at a "peanut" station.
10M was great at the start and I milked it for alI there was at the expense of
15 & 20. This hurt us a little without having a continuous 2nd multiplier
station active. I hoped that we would recover it all on Sunday. Seemed like 15M
hung on for several hours and by the time we got to 20, all the DL were gone and
off to the night bands, so there was no choice but to go to 40M. Later I worked
hard at 80M with the expectation to ride 40M through and beyond DL sunrise.
After 07Z that left us waiting for 20M to open. After a nice 5 hour nap, Will
powered through these toughest hours of the over-night while I slept. Mike -
The RTTY King - came in Sunday morning to help push us to the finish. Possible
new US-MS-HP record !

Our success rate moving needed multipliers was fairly low, only about 20% of
the DL's we asked to QSY for a new multiplier were willing to go. Special
thanks to DK0JRS for moving from 20M to 15M on Sunday along with DL5MAR and
K6ND station:
K3 -> ACOM2000A , IC-7700 -> ACOM1000

This was the first time I had a chance to test the station after a major
lightning strike in August.
Everything to Europe seems to work quite well.
Unfortunately I could not put in a full-time effort.

Thanks for all the contacts we will see you in CQWW.

First of all: Thanks to Gena, UA9MA and his wife Olga for hosting me and let me
use his pretty fine station!

Well, UA9M is not a place to win the Worked All Germany contest. Quite a
distance from DL, much time shift, not a rare multiplier and the WAG rules
don’t value QSOs from DX. Anyway, I enjoyed the chance to operate this pretty
nice contest from Siberia. It was just pure fun and I could gather many new
experiences. Thanks for all the QSOs!
