More electronics + CQWW DX CW

I went down to Burträsk already on Thursday and SM2XJP picked me up as usual in Skellefteå. Major work was to get the new 60m Moskojärvi tower rotatable and after a bit fault searching by me, SM2XJP and SM3JLA we found the problem being a shortcut bar in the terminal jack which I had not see when I put it together. When that was removed it all worked great. I managed to setup the station on Thursday so Friday was calm and nice before the competition. OH2UA who is the op who beat both me and SM2LIY in SAC this autumn asked me what our plans were for the contest and was willing to come over and help us out. It was a great addition to the team and Toni fit in perfectly and I sure do hope this was not the last we’ve seen of him @SJ2W. SE2T came on Friday evening but had to leave for a family dinner but was back on Sunday when SM3JLA had to leave.

Anyway it was a real blast and we could not have asked for a better result. Bands were the best they’ve been for a CQWW CW all the years I’ve participated and we managed to increase our Scandinavian record by some 30%

What a blast! I must say that propagations can't get much better than this for
us this late in the year with mostly just darkness outside, it was pretty much

We had operator reinforcements from OH in form of OH2UA, who normally operates
for our biggest rivals OH8X and it was a great addition to the normal bunch of
old farts @SJ2W.

Station worked flawlessly and we got the new 15 stack rotatable as well and it
was a great boost for us.
