Hi, Spotty 10&15m, but quiet low band's... Last few min's run out of stn to work, band map's ware almost empty... It was intense and fun, TNX for that...

CR5O

Contest well organized and well participated. It is a pity that the band change limitation rule makes the SO2R mode unfeasible. In my opinion and certainly of many, the skill and acuity of operators should be rewarded and not penalized. Tks.

Very interesting contest, first time on it and enjoyed a lot, hope to be next year on it.

EA1BP

Hi all. Took part in the Contest for a bit of fun. It had no sense for me since I am running QRP... and there is no category! Propagation opened in 10 and 15 meters but nobody. Funny moment when I got from SV2HXX 599 28! Wtf! That is my hero! Over 100 years old and active on Radio. But no. He was sending wrongly the exchange. He is 28 years old. See you in the next test. Best regards, EA1BP Miguel

First attempt in such contest.

 

ER1BF

73 from Moldova!

 

ES1TAR

Lousy propagation on 20m, conditions got better later.

 

ES2MC

Totally different conditions compared to last year - did the same score then with low power. Never got runs going on 15 and 10m and probably wasted too much time there. CU next year! Conditions up north here were not good on upper bands, never got runs going on 15 and 10m, was more a waste of time Thus my QSO and mult count also remained modest, actually made ca the same score last year with low power, hi! Perhaps should have done more S&P through bandmap. Used DXlog as software, worked ok, but occasionally it remains on TX, unless you additionally send some other message from the keyboard, after that only releases the PTT. Why is that? CU in autumn's contest season! 73, Arvo

 

ES5TV

I decided to try SSB only this time mostly to see how well the new EU inband antennas work in challenging SSB inband situation. They were great:) I could do dual CQ easily on 20,40 and 80 meters while there was no better activity for 2nd Radio. It was a bit strange to call CQ on 3750 and 3775 in parallel though:)    

But conditions were extremely tough on high bands. I felt quite helpless in the beginning seeing how competitors pile up mults on 10 meters and all I can see is empty waterfall:) 

I made nearly half of my 10 meters mults only in the last few hours of the contest when QSYs worked to totally empty band. That was magic! Also HB9JW 5-band QSY and 1949 was fantastic!         

Really tense competition with a lot of good guys on scoreboard. J42L, LY4A, S53M, S57AL, RA3OA... I did not have much hope that my low bands will be good enough to catch all of them by the end but it worked! Absolutely thrilling fight! Thanks!

2 x single Op with one antenna setup from the same shack, they have always used different bands. This may be an idea for others, too.

 

 

 

IT9CKA

Ottimo contest, molta presenza in 40 e 20m, ottima propagazione, solo 100watt antenna loop 10-40m e Kenwood TS-2000.

 

IT9RBW      

I decided to participate just the day before. One hour before the contest I still had a lot of things to do in the station. I already participated in the past but never in a competitive way. Over here where I live, during summer, temperatures are way too high inside the shack. I drank about 5L of water, trying to limit the qsy to the bathroom :)! It was a lot of fun, I hoped to do more in 10 Mt but the skip was long and no sporadic. The other bands were okay, no inband, no rx antenna. Im very satisfied of my progresses in cw and of the station.   

Tks all for qso!

 

IT9OPR

I worked the contest only on 2 bands 20m and 15m. On Saturday afternoon the propagation on 20m became very poor so I worked 15m but no too much EU. Anyway, I say many thanks to all stations that I met. All the best,73's

 

IT9VCE

Activity about ten hours on three bands

 

IT9VDQ

Only a few QSOs using Gabrieles IT9RGY remote station, TS590sg + Spyder beam, also located in the city great fun but at low speed no more than 30 wpm, because some small delay in returning to reception occasionally made me lose the first one or the first two letters/digits of the correspondent's call. It was interesting to note that when I started contesting "a few" years ago, 90% of correspondents gave me the highest license year of mine, now they always give me a "younger" date!

It was fun! I was running only 10w from my ic-705 TRX, so thanks everybody for the patience

 

LY4A

TNX for QSO's. This time Murpfy arrived and made also contest start mistake:) For first contest worked without RX antennas so inband radios when in TX don't have any antennas so its hard work in SSB. Problems fixed after contest so need to check RX antennas 2x8 switch box. For second started in 10m band but not lucky and missed many time for possible QSO's. after return to 20m all have 100qso more ad this difference don't changed until end of contest. So congrats to Tonno ES5TV and J42L for competition but this time don't have the chance for win. The propagation also is crazy.

Fun contest from home. Was due to be at contest QTH, but weather was not great and felt it wasnt worth setting everything up for 12 hours. Limited space at home with a very small garden, 40m antenna works good as does 20m but extreme difficulties to get anything efficient for 80m in the small plot. Tnx for patience and fun. 73, Scott   M3AWD

A fun contest. 12 hours is a good length, not too long. Nice to see plenty of activity.

As every year, I enjoyed this short and intensive contest a lot. I felt that there are more participants than usual, but the QSO total does not prove it - maybe operator issue :-) Thanks to rules (limit of 10 band/mode changes in an hour), classic SO2R helps just a little. Congratulation to Yuri UT4LW on his result - I believe his inband SO2R quite helps.    

Thank you all for calling me or answering my call!

Thank you for the QSOs in the contest with the worst HF propagation conditions experienced on all bands, especially 20, 15 and 10 M bands. Stared 2 hours late and found made only 58, 15 and 8 QSOs on these bands, for the to change to 40 M, 80 and 160 the rest of my time. Lots of thunder noise, QSB and small signals made it very difficult from my QTH at least. Did not notice that the contest only 12 hours. I noticed that Sunday morning when I wanted to continue the contest, only to experience no signals on the bands...

Stupid me ... read the rules!!!!

Nice contest, good operators, but most of all excellent conditions on 20 and 40 meters. Both bands crowded with stations!

Thanks for all QSOs! Since last year EUHFC I have upgraded my setup with new antenna, new feed line, better headphones with mic built in and new power supply. Also built my own antenna analyzer using RPI zero and Rigexpert aa-30.zero. All of this resulted in much better comfort and reception. I hope you have received me better as well. And of course, it was pleasure to be a part of this great event with all of you.

After my IARU HF participation was "canceled" due to electricity breakdown (thunderstorms) in my village I wanted to get on in another summer contest. Quite good surprise with not bad activity! As it was EU only contest I decided not to deploy full station. Tribander was used in parking position only (10m height) and I was just using cloud burning Inv V for 80m instead of my    vertical. As I had not antenna for 160m this time I just made few low power calls with antenna tuner. Good fun! I decided to take it easy with few relaxing breaks. I believe around 10-10.5h qrv time.

PS. I was NOT assisted! (as always)
