IARU HF contest as OL7HQ 20m CW + INBAND

   Again, after a year we were a part of the national OL7HQ call. Last years we run 15m, this one it was 20m and CW. Unfortunately I was really busy before Friedrichshafen with some new parts for: I wanted to prepare more new things to the contest but the only one I could do was inband antenna... Thanks to Pavel OK1MU, we repaired old tri-band dipole and installed it on the tree into abt 13m. These inband antennas are more than 350m from the closest TX antenna and in the West direction. So together with high IP preamp  it worked quite well! There is still big room for improvemets so I hope to find more free time and prepare more parts for inband.

   And to the contest, the condx was good but participation from NA is still really low. Anyway, it looks on the best number of mults on 20m (cw + ssb) ever! On CW we made 171 JA and 600 NA.
Thank you for all QSO, 20m CW team: Pavel OK1MU, Franta OK1DF, Vlada OK1CW, Petr OK7AN and Jan OK2ZAW.
