Soapbox: Very disturbed conditions for the whole duration of the
contest. Could not use 1/2/3 direction beaming to its full
potential on account of the cndx. 2nd radio got too much
RF at 19Z on Sat, the 0.1-2.0 MHz Lp-filters in the 850SAT
were in use on all bands as one of the switching IC's was
QRT for 20 minutes to rewind the station for
1-TVCR-operating. Next time I'll have to have BPF's to
protect the radio because next time this happens it'll be
the 3rd time...
With 2 radios I had the audio from TCVR B swithed to the
headphones when TCVR A was on the air. Boy that's a cool
operating technique! I met with a bad mental setback when
lost "the periscope" -radio (line) as it had allready in
the first hours given me many mults & fast QSYs.
Heavy competition in the "royal" SOAB HP category (concept
tnx OH3BU) and I take my hat off to salute Pasi OH1MM for
a job well done. 758 k points will not make it the top
three this year.
My hartly thanks go again to Kari OH5LF!
I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations
established for amateur radio in my country. My report is correct
and true to the best of my knowledge. I agree to be bound by the
decisions of the Awards Committee.
