D4CMULTI-TWOD4C team has worked a lot in the past months to get the station operational at least on a basic mode. Many hours of telcon meetings, planning, simulations and executing have enabled us to be qrv in the Multi section again. The House roof and structural issues belong to the past. We could focus in one of the planned projects: Antenna stacking. So not only two new towers for the 15m band were replaced but also Momobeam antenna company provided new antennas to be configured in a 2x4el NA and 2x4el EU configuration. We are happy of the results and we plan to extend it to other bands soon. This year the Guest-op team was composed by PX2A, Alto da Serra DX & Contest Station members who reached Cape Verde from San Paulo with 3 different flights. PY2EL Ricardo, PY2LED Fernando, PY2WC Waldir have been a tremendous asset to the core team. Special thanks go to PY2EL to have persuaded the other two guys to come over. Honestly in this leg, many inconvenient by flight delays, luggage lost have happened to 50% of the participants. This confirms how important is to plan an early arrival to a such difficult station in terms of WX conditions. IZ4DPV Max did an enormous preparation and troubleshooting work prior the contest. Moreover, our 160m antenna was found unusable, therefore Momobeam provided a MB1-160V 22m high vertical modified as Inv-L at 29m which was set with 100 radials. We had the feeling to be heard well again so confirming its efficiency. The category was decided on the last minute, also because of the potential missing people due to bad flight service and to a unfortunate surprise happened to part of the team just 1 hr before the contest that let us started with lot of tension and not at ease at all, situation solved on Saturday afternoon only. We are happy of the good teamwork with new mates and of the station performance tough without any automation at all as still in planning. We will keep working hours and hours back in EU to keep up the station and its improvements. Tnx all for the QSO and CU in the CW leg!

DK5KKSA HIGH ALLlic.date 02.04.2016
DK5TXSA HIGH ALLConstruction and testing weekend. At least one antenna per band again. Had to debug some RFI issues after being QRO again. I missed a lot of openings due to solder and installation work, but catched at least a nice 20m opening to the West Coast. 10m and 15m not worth mentioning from this place. First time usage of a band scope, which makes checking band conditions or finding a free QRG for CQ a lot easier. Running into a lot of friends on the bands after being 4 years QRT was the greatest of all
