Thanks for the QSOs. Had a few keying probs so sorry for that!
Could not quite agree about the effect of the almost invisible Africa DX contest. This is my 8th year doing BERU in Africa and there is no doubt that the persistent callers outside BERU have got worse – significantly so this year. Not a huge deal but there was a difference. A couple of nerds followed me round the bands for a couple of hours and defied every attempt to shake them off.
Condx this morning (Sunday) were the worst I have experienced in Africa BERU. Bands were dire.
Just want to say that Africa DX Contest could be great – if properly planned. Feel quite sorry that what could have been a good idea has nose-dived.- although that is what I hoped when it clashed with BERU (daft!)
