Here a small update about the week to bonaire island. We did see serveral things it’s a very beautiful island and of course (tnx Peter PJ4NX for your kindness and hospitality) the Contest PJ4E. We made a good score and we did leave PJ2T behind with a big difference. They had tranciever problems. First started with M/M and after a while they continu with M/M but only with 2 trancievers what we did hear. We also had a few problems of our own. The 40mtr beam was not working because of the last storm. The linear loading was broken. Both two rotor’s didn’t turn. We had to clime in the towers to see what was broken. The first was a Big Paint problem hmm. Which idote has done this. A idote who doesn’t have any ham spirit. Lucky the second rotor was a cable problem. We fixed the second with a loop in the wire. Also the inverted L for 160 was not working well. We had to make a Beverich to fix also this problem. So lucky we had two beams for 10-15-20 mtr and A beverich for 160,80 and a inverted V for 40mtr.
A total of 7716 contact and 14,6M point. It’s not the final score this will be ready by the end of the week. Kyle WA4PGM is going to see what’s wrong or not ok in the log.
On the contest start day we tested the station to europa. Never had a Pile up like this Whoaaa..
