Being fairly new to microwave contesting and first time ever on 10 GHz, it was a learning experience for me. Activity level was excellent, kind of like trying to drink from a fire hose. I missed opportunities for working more stations, but I will improve for next time. Four grids contacted on 10 GHz, ( one grid less than needed for 10G VUCC on my first day! ). 10 GHz with KA9VDU in EN52 and EN53 " Thanks Greg! 10 GHz with W9ZIH in EN51 " Thanks Ron! 10 GHz with K9PW/R in EN51 " Thanks Pete! 10 GHz with W9SZ/R in EN61 " Thanks Zack! Equipment: 902 = Barefoot DEMI 902 XVTR, 30w, M2 Yagi 1296 = Barefoot DEMI XVTR, 25w, M2 Yagi 2304 = DEMI XVTR and Pyro Joe amp, 25w, Directive Systems looper 10368 = Barefoot DEMI XVTR, 2.4w, surplus 24” dish w TVRO feedhorn Obviously needed improvements: • A second radio to monitor 144.260 • More power on 10 GHz Already have 3456 MHz equipment on order. Hope to have that running for June and August events. Then 5760 MHz - that will give me 10 bands.
