WAG 2017

Handing out a few points taking it rather leisurely. Like last year CW-only as I still haven’t managed to cobble some voicekeyer solution together for the remote end. And that being the designer of the FA-SM and BX-184 voicekeyer kits, shame on me! 😀

Condx were much better than expected! We had some nice stateside openings on 15 m but very low activity from North America, what a pity. There were even a few short openings on 10 m on the southern lines (V55A & 5H3EE being well over s9!) but of course you won’t win anything with these as there’s simply not enough activity in Africa.

I took a night break for 4 hours (I’m not up for 24 hours straight with all the QRL stress currently). Getting up, having coffee, trying to work stations … rate was so low around 4z that I fell asleep waiting for callers. No rate, no adrenaline! So decided to spend another hour on the couch until the alarm clock rang again. Was much better afterwards. 😉
