Dear All, For this contest some old Hungarian friends get to gether to have some fun. Some of us did not see each other for almost 40 years. All of us are hardcore CW fans; however this time we have decided to yell and scream for a change. Three of the group members came from Hungary and two of us came from Toronto. All of us had some experience in SSB pile ups during different DX-peditions like VK9, YJ0, C21, 9M4, TX0, PY0S, C6, K1N, CY9, CY0, VP5, CT3. We have decided to enter into Multi 2 category that would give the most on-air time for all of us and probably the most fun. Setting up the station took us about a day and a half. We had to tune some of the antennas, set up the new six pack (donated by VE3RZ)and three stations. The third station was on stand by in case of some trouble. The beverages had to be also serviced and hooked up because the local cattle herd has the right off way when no contest is on...:-)) CONDX were not the best and 10 meters were almost dead all the time towards NA. We had terrible noise from the rain clouds (that is what we think) both nights on the lower bands that made RX challanging. We did our best and had great fun together that is lot more valuable for us than the end result. Radios: K3, FT1K, TS590 Amps: TL922, MLA2500, ACOM 1K Ant: 160 - Inverted L 80 - Dipole 40 - 2 ele phased vertical and dipole 20, 15, 10 - 2 ele quad and a spider beam Now we are going for a bit of site seeing and enjoy Jamaica. We would like to thank Josh and Jenny for their hospitality. Jenny's cooking is a real treat :-) Thanks for all your patience in the challanging conditions and hope to hear you in the next one. 73 Lali, VE3NE
