Strictly last-minute part-time effort. But fun anyway, hearing the good old SP
contest calls from other contests, as well as a few new guys!

Propagation was lousy on Saturday but better Sunday.
Besides that my antenna's are still stuck at 140 degrees and was amazed to hear
fine signals from Poland.
As usual contesting is fun but it's time my rotor gets repaired hi. A little
more patience and I'll be able to turn my beams.

Thanks to all SP stations who picked up my signal.
73 Joe and a Happy Easter.

15 meters on Sunday morning saved what was becoming a truly frustrating
experience. Somehow I managed to best my result from two years ago.
Looking forward to better condx next year.

better. Thanks for all QSOs. Please look for the Georgia QSO Party next

Category SOSW = Single Operator Single Watt ;-)

Even doing much qrp it was only this week that I tested transmitting with only
one Watt. It somewhat amazed me - to say the least... So it needed a test in a
contest.

During the little time I was on I could collect every SP-station I heard on 80m
- not all with the first call, some with coming back minutes later. About 15
repeats for call and serial but not nearly as cubersome for both sides as
supposed.

Very, very good feeling and thanks to the receiving ops (but it makes it the
more ridiculous how people shoot kilowatts and even more kilowatts against each
other for spanning inner-continental distances).

And of course: Already after this first experiences with one Watt nothing
sounds more ridiculous than the phrase of "life is too short for qrp...".
Don't parrot this without having done it. You've missed a lot.

Antenna: 35m lw (=40m-doublet invL-shaped with 15m feederline shorted)

Many great signals on 40 from SP. Not much time to work, but if my antenna is
tuned right, I usually can work Lots of SP stations. Lots of good ops , too.

Thanks for the qsos.

Setup:

40m vertical dipole
6 x Inverted-Ls base-coupled array for 160m/80m.
