I guess I should "report" on the last weekend contest. The bands were kind and the 10 m was nice surprise being open for many hours.
Annoying part was the number of stations calling me spot on frequency and my old ears not being able to resolve the calls. Please chaps .... next time use the XIT button/knob and call a few Hz of my frequency... OK?... Thanks.
The above complaint was expressed by quite few contesters...
Let me first congratulate to all with the high scores... Well

About quarter to two on Sunday afternoon the strong wind broke my
SpiderBeam antenna and shortened the pole for G5RV. Well that was

Still ... it was fun...
Cheers es 73 to all.
