HQ2RMSHThis was a Contest expedition to Honduras by UA3AGW. We operated with Javier HR2J from his shack for 34 hours only - there were problems caused by the recent earthquake including underwater cable damage and no internet availability. Anyhow we enjoyed some good pile-ups though poor condx to USA on 80 and 15 mtr and no condx at all on 10 mtr band. Thanks to everybody who worked us and warmest 73's from San Pedro Sula, Northern Honduras !
HS0ZDRSO LP 15M15M CONDITIONS NOT VERY GOOD. ONLY OPERATED TO GIVE OUT MULTIPLIERS AS NOT MUCH FREE TIME.
HS0ZDYSO HP ALLThe usual tropical thunderstorms caused QRT numerous times. 10m openings to EU was surprising, maybe there is hope for this cycle after all. 80 was disappointing with very high noise levels.
HS0ZEESO LP ALLWorked a few East Coast USA stations but very weak and difficult to copy. Heard several stations on 160 meters but all to weak to read any calls. 80 Meters did only slightly better. 73 Sheridon (Don) HS0ZEE

JE1SPYSO LP 160MI participated in this contest in 160m low powersection. The condition between the U.S.A. and JA was not good. We coud only heard NR6O was calling CQ CQ.... And many JA called him. But We could not get answer from him. He was calling only CQ CQ .....His signal was 599.... I guess that he had a very hard loacl QRNN. I use M.V.(Micro Vert) antenna for 160m on this contest. It was very FB. It's gain was nearly equal to full size dipole. And I used a tranceiver 'K2' and 'K3'. I comparing examined these two transceivers during the contest. it was an interesting experiment.
