              Rig : Elecraft K3 + P3 + Spe 1k

         Antennas : Hex + G5RV

          Soapbox : Conditions were not too bad.  Plenty of stations to work.  Murphy appeared in mid morning on Sunday and destroyed the Hex.


No wind, no sulfur crest cockatoos - I'm absolutely flabbergasted how it may have happen.  During the contest later in the morning Barry VKK2BJ sent me SMS:  What is wrong with your radio?  Your signal looks wide and noisy on my (Barry's) panadaptor.
I looked out of the window and the poor antenna was a wreck

As expected the condx were not as good as one can hope for.  After all we are just about to hit the solar minimum. Band QSOs 160: 0 80:...
