Re: PSKFEST experiences

Dieter, DL2RR <dl2rr@...>

it harms that we don't came together. At late afternoon (local) the first W
came up, but with weak and very changefully signals. My experiences is this
contest is, you need a very good antenna to use QRP successfully.
I plan to mount a single LOOP for only 20 m if the weather permits it. It's
no fun to work in the roof at temperatures down to -18�C, hi. All parts are
situated already here, including a simple rotor for tv antennas. Hope to
finish it befor the Spring Rumble.

hope to cu, 73's de Dieter
