Simply a blast ! New antenna arrangement allow us to be ready for the M/2 category. This first try was a blast ! Unbelievable pileup for over 40 hours, with short slow down during our morning, despite 40m close late in the morning we always had few qso's from both band. 10m Despite the good opening of the previous days, both weekend days was marginal, take a lot of time to get qso's and managing 26 mults, from east and west coast. At that location we don't have noise and with the preamplifier ON the signals were in the noise floor, but completely readable. 15m The Queen Band ! Saturday the band open early that expected , with good run all over the afternoon until the sunset, second day even the over 2k qso's of the first day, the band has been opened until 2300z almost 3 hours over the sunset with an amazing condition to west coast ! 20m The crowed Band ! Most of the afternoons was spended on this band, condition was always good but the good run start from the sunset to midnight, so is a productive band but need an iron men to managing ! 40m Our simple 2 element delta loop has done an amazing job, with the new expanded band limit, the crowing of the band was extended until 7200, so seems better to get a clear freq. About 2k qso's were not planned, but despite the fact that we had moved on 40m only when 15m close these numbers are over our expectation . 80m Another fine band, we had shared the station with 160m to use only one bvg, and the time spended in both band was very productive. We are far from the USA in lower bands, but we managed to work 58 state, loosing SD and AR. Noise was static both days, also on the beverage, we still need to look for an effective way to reduce it, but the fun from this band is always insured with the 3 element delta loop. 160m We was lucky enough to have Max as SO 160 the weekend before, so we had a complete details how the band sound, open and close at that latitude. As expected the noise was high also this weekend, but spending more time has payed in mult's number, best one was VE7CC in BC. 49 states are near our target for that band setted at 50. Murphy visit us a couple of time with 80 m antenna during the night, fixed into the cloud and fogged night, and with some glitch with computer. Thank' to everyone worked us, see at the end the month Fabio I4UFH on of D4C
