My third IOTA contest ever and I used the same location and setup I used in 2013 and 2015. Lost 15m antenna in strong winds a couple of hours into the contest and could not fix that with the light lines being blown around in the wind so I almost gave up but then it dawned on me that I could use the 40m dipole on 15. A couple of hours later I found that the 20m antenna was bad too - I probably destroyed it when trying to fix 15 so I was again close to give up. Then it dawned on me that I could lengthen my low 10m dipole to resonate on 20. But I had forgotten to pack spare antenna wire. I found a mains extension lead which I slaughtered and then I was back on 20. On Sunday 10z I was so tired so I decided to QRT but I checked 10m and found big G signals via Es. So, out again to shorten that 10m dipole back to original and my score got a tremendous boost with mults and 15p QSOs during the last 90 minutes of the contest. Overall good relaxed fun and very satisfying to do OK with a simple field-day-style setup and associated improvisations.
