CQ WPX RTTY 2016 1st time in M/S category - NEW EU record

After a many years in SOSB categories, for the first time  we chose the “king”  M/S category. Finally, it was a good choice and great fun topped with a new European record !
But from the beginning. The start of the contest  did not look very good - two broken PAs before the start, lost one   rotator and  CONDX on 40 meters were realy terrible during the first night from central EU to  USA. Fortunately the second night were mutch better on 40 meters and also 80 meters had good activity. Beyond that, the upper bands went well and the total activity was also good.

We are satisfied with all bands and totally worked 101 DXCC, 621 x NA and 339 x JA.
Special Thanks to Jan OK2ZAW, who done an excellent job again and ALL the equipment worked perfectly!

Our setup :
80m – 4 el. Sloper dipoles system with 4SQ hybrid done by www.QRO.cz , dipole
40m – 10 el. Wire Yagi dir USA, 2 el Moxon for EU and JA, dipole
