I was really looking forward to do this year’s CQ-160 seriously again (even with still no RX antennas, hi) after having had lots of fun last year. Unfortunately short-term QRL duties prohibited a serious effort so rather spent Friday night with the XYL and only handed out a few points Saturday night before falling into bed. Maybe better luck next year. 😉

Sunday morning recognized that the BARTG January Sprint was on, too. So switched over to RTTY but found activity to be lacking and CONDX very poor = no fun. Thus stopped it after about an hour again and started doing some QSL work instead. 😉
