I did not expect so much fun in Low Power category. My regular SO2R setup contains one high-power radio and one 100 W radio, so this year I decided to give it a try on SO-LP category. It worked pretty well and I am happy with the result, despite some minor/moderate problems. First half of the contest I did not take it too seriously, so I made some mistakes: instead of taking rest, I continued to operate with very low hourly rates (4-20 QSO/hr), then I did not care about cumulative operating time, so Sunday afternoon I exceeded the maximum allowed of 30 hrs, then I lost 4 or 5 multipliers due to a malfunction in N1MM+ synchronization process etc. I managed some good runs, especially with EU stations, thanks to RBN cluster, who spotted me quite well. Thanks everybody for calling and for replies and see you in coming contests. Alex, YO9HP Rig 1: IC-7600 Ant 1: Optibeam 17-4 + 11-5 Rig 2: IC-7100 Ant 2: Mosley MP33NW (3 el), Inv-V (80 m).
