EI5DISO LP 80MIn 2014 I did SOSB/80 HP (Unassisted) and set a new EI record, and #3 World, with my own call from the EI9E contest station in Co. Wexford, using its new 80m 4SQ antenna. For 2015 I tried LP SOSB/80 Unassisted from the same location - with K3/P3 barefoot (100w), Begali HST II paddle, WinKey USB, 1963 Drake 2BQ speaker, my HF contest logger (SD), and my comfortable office chair (no arms) that I take everywhere I can when contesting. It was a pleasure to operate in a quiet environment, with full break-in and no noise from amplifier fans or relays - and no sore head or ears from ill-fitting headsets. The Drake 2BQ speaker has a wonderful resonance on CW - I've not found anything better. Of course, it's harder with LP but that's part of the challenge. The 4SQ is amazing, with instant switching between four prime directions. Some compromises are necessary, and coverage due South and into the Caribbean isn't so good, but probably better than with a single 80m vertical. The EI9E location is electrically very quiet, and I used the 4SQ for receiving most of the time, even though both K9AY and Beverages were available. One highlight was being called by VK4MA on 3500.25 at 6pm on Sunday for a double mult - in the middle of EU chaos. Here's the 2014/15 scores for comparison 80m SOSB HP 2014 - 2018 Q, 27 Z, 92 C, 394,723 (27 hours) 80m SOSB LP 2015 - 1519 Q, 20 Z, 79 C, 252,251 (30 hours) - Claimed 73, Paul EI5DI

EI7MMSHBands lively but propagation playing strange tricks with us most of the time. It looks like our cw skills and station are improving just enough to cancel out the general decline in conditions!
