Fun as always... The idea was to do the contest as M2 to have a feeling how me and PY1NX would work together in the WRTC 2018. I've got some BPF filters and a triplex to use with Spiderbeam, but we were having a lot of interference between 2 radios, was like BPFs were not working at all. After whole week before contest trying to troubleshoot and not resolving we deicide for MS category as we would be able to do some multupliers in the other radio. Classic MS operatoin, one radio running and the other S&P. We made a 40m inverted-v dipole that stayed at 10m high with the tips at 2m high and it worked just fine, actually I was pretty surprised what we could achieve with this antenna. Propagation on High bands was really bad, but low bands were crowded. A lot of pain with this long call sign, need to repeat several times for some difficult QSOs with poor signal, LP is always hard and within Europe is even worse. I think the experience was nice, we had a lot fun during the running time and also during the low rate where we were remembering the old days in PY land. :) Thanks to PY1NX for the visit, help and company during the contest, thanks IT9AUG for give me some tips with filtering better K3 because of interaction between radios and RA6LBS for provide all accessories in time for the contest. See you in the next one... 73 Alex PA/PY2SEX Rigs: Yaesu FT-Dx 5000MP Elecraft K3 Ant: Spiderbeam 5B HD Inverted V dipole for 40m Inverted L for 80/160M.
