Station setup: Rig: IC756PROIII Ant: 8 EL, tribander at 80 feet Amp: SB-200 Software: N1MM+ running MMTTY, 2Tone & GRITTY This is perhaps the first WW I have participated in where I have made no QSO's on 10M. I seem to have missed the 10M openings that showed up on the local RBN node. The usual noise at my dense urban location and the poor band conditions made it tough to decode most stations. I probably missed out on quite a few callers. 15M was the go-to band this time. On 20M, it was incredible to hear RTTY sigs up beyond 14.150! I experienced a small fire in the amp. It was probably due to cobwebs igniting in the amp (the amp stays idle between the WPX's and WW's!). The ol'amp continued to work though, but I turned down my power output to 220-250 watts after that. I will need to investigate what happened. Poor conditions and high local noise made it a disappointing weekend for me. It was great to see a few VU's on the contest. Apart from the regulars VU2NKS and AT3T (VU2PTT), it was good to hear AT5M (VU2MUD), VU2DED (with his great low-power, wire antenna setup), VU2IBI, VU2GRM, VU2YVK, VU2KWJ and VU2NFJ. 73 de Lucky / VU2LBW VU Contest Group Bangalore, INDIA
