Agree with Stewart I felt responsible for giving out the HQ mult to others and QSY’d as requested

Same thoughts on 80m didn’t CQ below 3510 as it would be encouraging non-DX qsos in the DX window.

Titanex broke above the top guys on Thursday night before the test so made temporary fix using aluminium.

This is a repeat offender and needs a permanent solution.

No other equipment issues during the test.

WX on Saturday caused really bad static noise during the snow and sleet squalls to a point where it was impossible to hear stations.

Apologies for the poor operating. At times I failed to even read basic calls.

Station performance graded A Operator performance graded D

Can and must do better.

Hopefully contributed in some way to the test.

Yours Depressed
