Hi Joe

the contest is not over yet, but the scoring here so far: 63x29 on 23cm.
Conditions seemed fine, this in contrast to some other observations. Many
regulars were missing, not CT, LX, very few SM,PA,ON..
The rig was doing fine, so I could really enjoy the band.
My initials count went up to #187 (JH1EFA).

Hi Joe,

station didn´t worked very well this time. After absense first leg because the 
storm, this time had sat. morning wet feed lines with high SWR and on sunday 
night 2:00 UTC my HV tranformer gave up and 10 minutes later my TR-7 did not TX. 
So I went to bed after 20 QSO.
The HV transformer is replaced and now I try to fix the TR-7 problem. If I can 
fix it, I will be on for the last hours.
Condx were mixed, but activity was less then last year.
20m ant. is down, waiting for a new one.
