CQMM – The CQ Manchester Mineira DX Contest

CWMM DX ContestWhile waiting today for Heiko, DG1BHA, to arrive for the 15 m rotator care I made a few more QSOs in CQMM. Seems to be an interesting contest although activity was not too high. Did 50 QSOs yesterday, 100 while waiting for Heiko and finally another 100 after the 15 m rotator was fixed and before leaving the station to go back into town. We had a surprise opening on 10 m late afternoon with very strange path’ and amazing signal strength’ but more on that in a separate blog entry, maybe tomorrow when back in Cologne.
