Wow!!! Being here at ZW5B was the most shocking experience in my contesting life!!! Everything was just wonderful. People, place, station, food, hospitality! Everything. Originally planned to enter SOAB, but I found Thomas PY2ZXU was here at the station so I thought it was great to invite him to stay with me and do two single band entries. That we did! We had lots of fun. I learned a lot here. Thomas simply rules!!! Another highlight was the visit to Don's (PY5ZBU) station. Don is devoted to EME mostly and having the opportunity of meeting a world class EME station and operator was very impressing. Propagation was down from last year I guess. Transecuatorial had some effect here on 15 too when sunspots are down. So it was kinda strange to listen to southern stations run big piles while here the band was almost closed. I must thank Oms PY5EG for let this dream of mine come true! His passion for our hobby is all around this beautiful station. What he does to encourage new people to join this beautiful hobby can be touched with your hands and can be seen in everybody here willing to help with a truly fantastic team spirit! I must thank also to PY2ZXU's XYL Laura for allowing Thomas to stay and operate and for all the nice chats we had about life in general. Thanks Thomas for being such a super fantastic mate! I only hope we can share more contests in the future. Thanks Luciano PY5KD for all his help prior to the contest. Thanks Maia PY5CA for all his kind help and hospitality. Thanks also to Sonia, and all the people here at the those for being just great and for making me feel like at home all weekend long! Thanks again from heart!
