Not much has been expected in
advance from this
Surprisingly, lots of nice
calls, decent number of cty and
state/prov has been collected the
first night. US signals were weaker as
compared to one year ago.
hour sleep before test seemed to be
enough for whole night operation.
second night all numbers were
increasing very optimistically. A
dozen of extremely loud signals from
US, also a number of marginal signals
during the night and still some new
states showing up around sunrise. AZ
and OR were caught from 7 area, with
w6df from CA with steady solid signal
and calling him in between other calls
for an hour, but without reply. Nice
calls were from ea9, zs, hz, ye, bv,
by, fm, fy, xe, vu, vr.
evening catching around for every new
qso. Final claim is slightly above 1M,
the point margin not expected in
Friday evening. Nice and encouraging
for tower feed vertical and two
baverages in the mid of EU.
fun, thanks for all
