This year contest has been a completely new experience for us, after many years setting up stations on the various peaks of the island.
We finally had authorization from the Association "Amici di Cetrella" to use some rooms of their club on a mountaintop for our purposes.
It is just a beginning..........
The operator "Murphy", like usual is always present, in fact just few hours before the start we lost our 14 KW generator, and the parts have been replaced only the monday after contest (sigh!).
We had to bring on our shoulders, like all antennas, tranceivers, cables and all, also another generator for low power devices......
For this reason we were not able to use our multiplier station, well showed from the poor number of mults worked.
Next contests, will be in any case all "field day style", being this part of the island without AC and without possibility to install permanent antennas.
Of course, according to weather conditions we will try to be active for all mayor contests, but lightning danger is really high, not only for electronic equipments.
The call will change every year, according to all members.
