WIA Rembrance Contest

 For little bit of fun:

Murphy interfered big time.  In the evening when the 160 m band opened my hurriedly installed End Fed antenna for that band failed and I thought that the amplifier  "got sick".  Why it worked well on Friday and on Saturday morning and not on Saturday evening?

The good thing is that when I've removed the EF all was right again.  Amplifier is healthy.

The WAEDC CW contest 2020

Very interesting contest, however a little bit slow.  The world is working only EU stations.  The "interesting bit" the passing of QTC.  It is easy as the logger makes most of the work for you and you get extra points (i.e. for doing very little)
