WA3VSA LP ALLMaximum power was 100 watts
WA3YRI/2SO LP 10MOperating as Hurricane Sandy Comes ashore in NJ with an AR-10 Ringo vertical mounted on free standing (un-guyed) 20 foot military stacked fiberglass poles. Stayed up the entire hurricane surviving 70+ MPH gusts!
WA4HXCSA LP ALLLots of fun
WA5IYXSO LP ALL(2002) FT-847, (1977) 10-m 3-el Wilson Yagi @20' AGL; 20/40-m fan dipole at 15' AGL- both 75-m fan dipole and h.b. 3-e 15-m Yagi out of commission. amazingly good 10-m condx with a not-so-high solar flux - some Qs made at 29-MHz +. All Qs were S&P - never could establish a run. Slightly lower score than last year probably due in part to having to use 40-m dipole on 15-m
WA5RMLSO LP ALLT.T. Paragon and Yaesu FT-857D @100 wts to MA5V vertical
WA5WFESA LP 10MPower level 100 Watts
WA6KHKSA HP 15MWe did the whole contest but since we did so good on 15 meters we decided to enter as 15 meters single band. How about that 3 hour opening to Europe on 10 meters Sunday morning guys!!! I bet a lot of 5BDXCC hopes were helped out. Were getting a poor man's KW (Heathkit SB-220 and keep the SB-200 for a spare) from another ham next month...soooo...once I get the Harbach mods put in, watch out. We're going to give the antenna farms a run for their money. C'ya

WL7ESO HP 10MDaytime condx were fabulous, night time condx were rather disappointing. The first night I had a Forced Off Time, no signals from 0341z until 1745z. Much the same the second night. However, I managed to catch an EU opening on Sunday morning to save the day. I hope all had fun and many tnx to all who called! 73, Joe WL7E

XX9AUSO LP 15MMy transceiver is Yaesu-920. Max power in the contest is 100W
XX9TYTSO HP 15MGreat experience.All was an expriment, location,country/licence, antennas and rtx. All was arranged for the first time for the contest. The only tech problems was to configure the DVK.so finally i just use my loudy and sometime raspy voice. Finnally have a good score,but not the expected result. I miss a lot of qso with Eu expecially on saturday, but a mix of bad propagation and classic "eu wall of qrm" make operations very difficult. Sunday morning i also found a mistake in the antenna direction!!!! "The hand- man rotator" made a mistake and the antenna was not pointing exactly to eu. Na path was really unexpected, low signals but all workable becouse no qrm. Thanks to Spiderbeam, ZeroFive antennas, David vr2ydc for the support. See you in next contest Equipment: Rtx: Ten-tec Omni Vii Pa: Acom 1000 Antennas: 3el.Spiderbeam - 5/8wl vertical by ZeroFive antenna
