Overall poor conditions and lower turnout than in the previous years ... The best hour race was 167 QSO. There were bad condx US in Saturday, only 25 states, the Sunday was a little bit better. The only US from WC was N7GP from AZ. This year we had only temporary and short BVRGs: 2 x 260 m dir US 1 x 180 m dir US 1 x 170 m dir JA 1 x 160 m dir VK 1 x 100 m dir AF 1 x 210 dir SA 1 x 240 m dir Caribbean K9 Anyway we need to learn something new - tower detuning. It was really terrible to "see" our RBN signals in NA. We are missing a lot of dBs. Our new 30m (100fts) tower with 5el 20m Yagi works as perfect reflector to our 42m vertical antenna. Unfortunately it is situated in 320deg directly to NA... The JA direction worked fine, we were there over 40dB. Thank you for all the QSOs. The log is already on LoTW. See you in WPX RTTY and ARRL DX CW.. Pavel OK1MU, on behalf OL7M team
