HB0/DF4SASO HP ALLDue to heavy QRL workload I was afraid I was going to miss CQWW entirely this year and had been unhappy about that for months. However just a few days before the contest the opportunity arrived to squeeze in a short visit to HB0 between two business trips and I got all excited. As I needed to be back in Northern Germany on Monday, a 48h operation was out of question but I was going to try the new 24h Classic category. I had not operated SOAB for several years, my equipment was scattered all over Germany and I didnt even know if it would still work, but hey, at least I was going to be in there and have fun! Propagation from HB0 is special due to the high alpine mountains. As much as my location at over 1000m above sea level produced great runs to the West, the mountains to the East are around 2000m high and very hard to beat. I missed almost all the multipliers to the East and could not get much of a run going during the morning hours, while in the afternoon the 10 minute rate often exceeded 250 QSO/h. In retrospect I probably should not have spent any time for searching all those unreachable multipliers but should have just called CQ 24hrs straight. Something to learn for the future! The 24h category anyway requires a much different approach and I believe a good strategy is a lot more important than in the 48 hour "endurance" class. It will be interesting to watch it develop during the coming years. For this year my strategy could best be describes as "make as many mistakes as possible" :). I like the new category a lot and it sure helped motivating me to go on this last minute trip. However I have to admit it was a sad moment when I had to switch off in the middle of the heat at Sunday afternoon 15:00 UTC when my 24h period was over. I just had gotten _really_ into it and it felt like leaving a good party much too early. But then I knew there was a 900km drive on the motorway ahead of me and indeed when I finally reached Hamburg it was exactly 23:55 UTC - end of the contest. Perhaps I should have participated the final 8h as DF4SA/m :). After more than 10 years of operating from DX locations with "anonymous" callsigns it was a nice change to finally bring DF4SA on the air again. I enjoyed very much meeting old friends and thanks to everybody who said hi. The scenic mountain landscape in beautiful winter conditions with around 30cm of fresh snow, and the warm welcome by the local radio amateurs sure helped making this not only a radio experience but a mini holiday and much needed escape from day-to-day worries. My sincere thanks to HB0TW, HB0WR and HB0BB for their kind help and hospitality! CU all next year from (?). 73 Con DF4SA

II9PSO HP 10MNice to work 10 meters single band from mountain top QTH at II9P. I had the opportunity to work via southern paths overlooking the sea with not common propagation via long path to Pacific and JAs during the late evening. Signals coming from Asia, in the morning, are very strong in this QTH. Wasted some time with blackouts and excessive S&Ping. Hope to join CQWW CW next year!

IR4BSO HP 10MAlmost 19 hours on air, only 10m., I simply enjoyed operating this CW test with generally good propagation. First day I was almost always on multipliers search, but very low rate, second day a better rate. Power out closely measured at 500W with LP-100A wattmeter, Antenna 3 el Ultrabeam, rig TS590, one tetrode tube amplif. I declare I operated within our power limit
IR4XMSHOur antenna's setup is still in progress. Great result with only a wires on 40 ,80 and 160. Happy to have Ruslan RK4YJ enjoyed our team on Saturday
