We started the contest setting the target at the 1997 country record (as last year we ended just below). But since the conditions to W/VE were bad the first night and even worse the second, we miss a about 2~3 handfull of multipliers. Still we were ableo to work into New Mexico suprisingly, but missing many states in the 1, 3 and 4 call region, with only PEI wkd in VE (even VY2ZM wasn't strong and sometimes just barely audible). So we ended somewhere half-way down the country scores. But it was 'fun' again to battle that immens QRM in THE contest for the die-hards ;) and we gathered some BCC Frequent Contesters points. As the farmer needed the field only very limited antennes for this contest. I guess having at least the 8-circle for RX would have been a lot better, although I still doubt we could have reached our target as we also didn't see lot of EU-NA cluster spots. Listening to some other EU stations, we noticed they had issues working stateside too. To the East, nothing futher than zone 17 was heard/worked. Station: IC7800 and Orion (interlocked), ACOM2000 @ 1k5W Antennas: TRX: full-size dipole. RX: K9AY. See you next weekend in the ARRL SSB! 73 Aurelio PC5A Frank ON9CC / OT6M
