Bit last minute this year sorting out LF antennas and it showed!

Ended up putting up a borrowed Cushcraft 40/80m vertical with only 8 radials on Friday afternoon as had to take down previous LF antennas as they were too close to the newly installed pacemaker!

HF condx seemed OK although my 10m Q total was slightly down on last year but 15 and 20 Qs were up.
However, 40 and 80 were very poor overnight with very high noise levels and poor condx and the vertical didn’t perform at all on 80m with only 11 Q’s so Dave WGN ur not alone!
As others have reported great sigs form VK/ZL on 20m Sunday morning.

Used my SCC last year but decided against it this year as its not about rate and seemed to cause a bit of confusion. As Don (BJ) said people do get to recognise regular callsigns.

I have lodged my claimed score on 3830scores.com for now!!
