|Following the great storm Zeus during the ARRL Phone contest, I had to roll up my sleeves to repair the damage in order to be active in the CQWPX phone Contest (SOAB). I did not expect to beat the previous record in that category, due to low solar activity (worse on 15-meter band than during the ARRL Contest). My higher QSO rates were better on 40m (166 QSO/H)than on 20m. Propagation was so poor on 15m that it did not pay off with the NA Continent :-( There is still much work to be done before being fully operational, but once again I enjoyed this weekend. I’d like to thank you all for calling, and sorry for those I could not copy. 73 de Gildas, TM0T (aka F4HQZ) Icom 7800 + HB linear amp. 160m: 18m vertical T with elevated radials 80m: Top-loaded delta loop 40m: 4 el.
