This was again one of those week ends when the power line noise made true contesting impossible. When beaming to W-NW the noise level was S9+10dB. When beaming to JA noise was only S5. The noise source is only 100-150 m from my antenna towers. During those 31 hours of operating time(by contest rules)I had a total of 17 hours breaks of 6-56 minutes when the noise was unbeatable and exceeded my tolerance. Because of the limitations I decided to use my time to learn the use of DX Clusters in contesting and go assisted class. By the second day I had learned quite a lot but I am still clumsy and waste time. I have no SO2R on RTTY, only on CW. Because of the high noise level I could not copy very well and most probably there are many copying errors in the log. There were surprising openings to the west coast on 20 and 15 on Sunday night. Despite of the frustration during the contest I feel now after a good sleep that it was a good learning session and a great fun. Thanks for all the QSOs and thanks for being patient because of several repeat requests. Pertti, OH2PM
