Can you imagine how strong men has to be by the decision to use 3-bander, dipoles, 100w power during the Contest instead of rotary 3 el ful size quad antenna for 80 m on some nearly 40m high free standing tower, full size 5 el quad antenna on similar separate tower, KW amplifier when He can almost touch all those available playing tools by lenght of extended hand......? We did! In December of 2016 We asked Chris DL1MGB (He visited Lithuania during 60 years celebration of Kaunas university of technology radio club) for the possibility to visit and operate one of possible WRTC testing stations in Germany in July of 2017. The answer was NO, because me and Mindis LY4L were considered as potential competitors in WRTC 2018. But luckily Chris promissed us to ask DL Contest community if some one can host us during IARU 2017. Voila! Things ended the way We collected our transceivers, computers, filters, lot of other neccessary stuff and headed to Klaus DJ4PT QTH for taking part in IARU 2017. The main goal of our trip of course was to learn propagation differences, to understand and fix in to our memorys where to turn antenna, how differently the DX signals sounds more than thousant km away from our home and many many more. We thought that this kind of training would really help us to be more competetive next year, if WRTC committee would select us as one of competing teams. And today I think We were not shouting away the target. The trip was very productive. For this We owe tones of thanks to amazing Host Klaus DJ4PT and His XYL Helga - their hospitality is unforgettable, To Klaus DF9XV for substituding those big monster quad antennas by dipoles for 80 and 40 m and spending many hours of His time to make us happy, Klaus DJ4AX for going long distance from His home to share secrets of propagation and old stories, to Christian DL1MGB for taking care about our wishes to operate from Germany. Thanks to Helga and DF9XV XYL Brigitte, DL4OBD for keeping my wife busy during Contest Weekend. Thanks to Sarunas, M0UNN (Mindis brother) for coming ower and supporting us in Germany, thanks to our technical manager Gin LY5Y for beeing with us when is neccessary and everywhere. Our score above was made according announced WRTC 2018 rules, using equipment and antennas approaching possible WRTC reality - OB threebander, bit higher, but facing trees, 40 m 1 element dipole on separate tower from yagi (0 interference between 40 and other bands in this case), 80m dipole, FTDX3000, FTDX5000 at 100W and so on. There are shown DXCC countries instead of zones, and score counted according WRTC rules since We used WRTC configuration in Win-Test. Two signals were transmitted at the same time. Log will be send as check log of course and will be open for everyone after the dead line. Me and Mindis were staying in chairs almost full time, but few QSO's were made by Gin and Sarunas during our contest related discutions. 73! Gedas LY9A
