Played around in this one testing the remote system. It’s perfect with ARRL since you don’t need to rotate the beams since the big tower is not rotatable yet via the remote. Total 18.5 hours of operating time and I had a lot of fun!

This was fun, I took part of the contest working remotely from my work QTH. It
worked great with the remoterig system (, I could not
notice any delay and pretty much was just as being at the station. I worked
18.5 hours in the contest and propagations were very interesting. At some
points they were awful but they also generated great opening on 10m via aurora,
which would not be possible otherwise with SFI just over 100. I wish I did work
the first night though, that would have given me probably 40 more mults since
160/80m was great, which was not the case the 2nd night and Sunday evening.

Kind of wish I did work this one seriously at location, but there is always
next year.

Here is a video I made a few days ago of the remote control @work QTH,

160m: 39m vert
 80m: 4-SQ
 40m: 3/3el
 20m: 6/6/6el
 15m: 6/6el
 10m: 6el @46m
