Total Score = 9,343,340 Club: Soapbox: Good fun! With family here I could
not dedicate the whole 48 hours to the
contest, so I went for pileups - boy
they were wild - and picking whatever
I could with the help of the cluster.
NO fancy set-up, just a simple
single-radio arrangement here, so I
found cluster of a very limited
benefit. Most of the mults were found
anyway "skimming" the bands when
looking for a running frequency or
changing bands. And when the spot
comes up, its very frustrating ti
break through the EU wall, while
nobody really bothers to turn the
antenna down towards Africa. There's a
huuuge pond of juicy mults here guys,
and you miss them! 160&80 are
marginal here for most of the time,
but have not seen it like this. Not a
single signal heard on 160 the whole
weekend!? Even 40 with a rotary dipole
at 24 meters which usually produces
excellent signal, made me wonder if I
was transmitting anything at all,
considering the effort needed to get
someones attention. CU in CW, same
arrangement/category. 73 Robert,
