CR1ZSO LP ALLPhone operation is not definitely not my favourite one but being on Azores I just had to make at least a few contacts (note that CR1 prefix means Azorres accoring to new regulation of Portugese ANACOM). Location was on Sao Miguel Island (EU-003). I operated using IC-7000, Spiderbeam, R7 vertical, dipole and Inverted L (for 80m)
CT1EEKSO LP 20MAntenna Setup down. Lots of fun with only a TS-570, 80W & a homemade wire dipole for 20mts. CU on the next contest.
CT1ENQSO LP 15MNot much time and power on the threshold of QRP limits nevertheless i was able to make nice contacts on these conditions. Greetings to all @ CQ and thanks for organizing some of the best contests in the world.
CT2JBGSO LP 15MRig: Kenwood ts-480sat - 100w. Ant: Kelemen dipole .
CT4NHSO HP 10MMy favourite band despite propagation not helping!
CT9/M0BCTSO QRP 10MOperated giving points away whilst on holiday with intention of sending in a checklog, but decided to send in an entry as I have never done so before. Very hard going QRP with such a small antenna on the balcony. Only take off was from due South through to 300 degrees. EU was totally blocked by very high cliffs. Good fun. TX was FT817nd, antenna ATX Walkabout with tape measure as ground.
DA0HELMSHThe conditions were not good for a low power station. We couldn't really get anything going with cq calling and s&p was hard work as well. Before and after the contest dxing was much easier! We used a SpiderBeam, ZS6BKW, 40m-GP and an Inv-L for 80/160m and a TS-2000 as trx. Everything was set-up at the youth hostel at the north beach. Because of the large team there was no real contest torture. It was only for fun after all. But next time we will take a PA instead of just another radio, hi.
