Thank Goodness for 10m ! ! ! (my only real antenna)
Just messing around a couple hours here and there with a huge SWR on broken
wires literally laying in the woods on 15,20 & 40...10m is a small 5el yagi up
Some good ears and ops in Germany.
Surprised by the # of non-Germans who called me repeatedly even though I was
CQing "CQ WAG" "CQ DL/DJ" "only German only German" etc. Had a rough go a few
times, hi hi !
Had a great time as always though. A real favorite contest of mine. Wish I
had more time and antennas this year.

Hurray! Finally a full weekend of outstanding conditions. Quiet low bands and
consistent 10/15. Only part time due to beautiful wx outside, the fall sports
season here in the US and a silly back injury. Found a minor problem with K3
rx sensistivity on 10 meters, but better now then for the following contests.
All the work to get the 10 meter 4 square perfect seems to have paid off. My
30 yr old single 80 meter vertical still seems to perform well!

Thanks to the DARC crew for another sucessful contest.

K3, Alpha 9500, four squares, K9AY Loop, Win-Test, understanding XYL...

Thanks to KB1H for letting us beat on the station to warm up for CQWW. Thanks
to DARC for hoston this well timed, well attended event.

Does Mult J Exist?

Really had a chance to work out many bugs with the station setup and ended in
very good shape.

Well, very happy to be on the air from my home. I made a new dipole for 10m at
end of contest and was really good... Now 2 dipoles on my Balcony and one TAK
antenna for 40m... Not the best but enjoyable! :D

See you guy at next one...

Many thanks to all who picked me up on the frequencies, Hope to meet you next
year again.
K5LH   SO CW LP   43,2902012-10-21 08:43:15
Lower bands noisy, but fine condx on 10, 15 and 20 meters. Good participation.
Had 18 more QSOs than last year. Lots of fun.

Chris, K5LH

Rig: Omni V (90 W), wire dipoles, Aetherlog for Mac.

One of my favorite contests, and thanks for 10m!! Thanks to all who heard my 5W

It was great to work the German stations in this contest after a while. I even
managed to work some stations on 10m. Too bad the propagation never really
favored 10m. Good signals on all the other bands.
K7RL   SO Mixed HP   149,6882012-10-21 10:36:57
Aside from the M9.0 flare Saturday morning that caused a short radio blackout,
conditions were pretty good. Thanks to all the great German operators for
making this fun.

OR2F   SO CW LP   45,3692012-10-21 10:40:35
very good condx on 10m band, both weekend days (ok)
this time 21 MHz was not that friendly :)
DL8MBS   SO Mixed QRP   233,8742012-10-21 10:41:51
Thanks for that big acitivity. Helped even in the last few minutes for a sprint
attempt to reach the 777-mark and then close a few minutes early ;-)

K2 and three mostly provisional wires not reaching higher than 12m. As this QTH
gives them no good direction other than UA9 the variety of multipliers is
somewhat limited... No complaint about condx. Some years ago we would have been
extremely happy to complain that 10 and 15 sounded better than they were.

Hope to work you all again next year.

TT ORION II, Alpha 76, N1MM, stacked yagis on 10,15,20,40, 5 element vert array
on 80. Had 122 SSB on 10 first hour Sat, no sigs in Midwest from DL on Sunday
Sporatic E covering DL. 15 most consistant band. Fun contest, DL ops very
cordial, even as we asked for repeats on weak signals. A couple of NM reports,
a couple special calls but NO J'S. Looking forward to next year.

WAG was one of my favourites back as DL7IO. Here in ZL it falls into a long
weekend (Fr-Mo) with most people travelling. So I bet participation from ZL was

Our house building project and 2 sick kids forced us to stay home for the first
time since we are in ZL now and allowed me to give out a multiplier to lots of
old & new friends.

The god of the winds got his tribute as well. Since about 2-3 weeks we have our
"normal" spring winds with gales up to 170 km/h. Last night and this morning was
worse and lots of trees broke. My little hf beam got damaged as well. The 20m
vertical for the low bands is 90° shaped in the top but holds up. Actually the
verticals are the only antennas that could withstand the winds at our place so
far. The 80m 4square was only taken down to make room for the construction

Low bands were extremely noisy here and I did not even try 80m due to S7 static
crashes all the time. Most likely wind static which I also had the first night
during Oceania CW. Except from an hour on 10m all QSO's were S&P.

Anyhow it was a pleasure to meet so many of my old mates and I hope to see you
in the CQ WW's as ZM4T!

Equipment used: K3, 5 meter wire on flag pole with ATU

15/10m was open world wide but not short distance like G -DL.
Many DL station got decent pile up so I have to wait......

Anyway, thanks for working with my weak signal!

FT1000MP, Alpha 91b, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, inverted vee. Good conditions on
high bands. 80M not very good here. A lot of activity from Germany and the
rest of the world. Nice to have a good 10-meter opening. Thanks for all QSOs.

The station is still under construction, but getting better.
Ten meter stack doing fantastic job.
