Hi all from snowy Prince Edward Island, -5c today, its warmed up! The sea is frozen here!
First visit to a superstation (at the VY2TT DX lodge here) so I tried to do it justice, but struggled at times of course .The rig is 2 K3’s , amps, 80m 4sq, 40m 4 ele at 90 feet, 3 stack 20m 6 ele,separately rotatable, 3 stack 15m all rotatable, 6/6/4, 10m 2 8 ele,Try working out a plan for pointing that lot in BERU! Luckily one K3 of two here was incommunicado with the pc so I didnt try SO2R as well or might have gone ( more ) bonkers.
Apologies for any tangles on 20m in the pileup on saturday morning, I was using the shack Writelog, not my thing, so got stuck occasionally.
Conditions seemed ok but noisy here on sunday on 80m , then not much new here after 0900zZip on 10m, a few on 15m, including G.I finished at 0915 so nearly lasted 24 hours. Writelog would not mark any score for QSOs with GM or MM prefixes, or at least display the score, must want UDI !
I ended up with 790 QSO s, and 7000 points ish, may be that total is missing the 50 or so GM/MM prefix calls.
It was great to work the travellers on most bands, and lots of OT callers ; BERU is the only contest when everyone waits for lots of retries, with no aggro.I got one negative comment as I speeded up the599 and / in my call , I hope it didnt sound too horrible, maybe not do that again?
Please post good pictures and reports on the RSGB log site and BERU site
