IOTA 2015

Category: MS ISLAND FIX LP
Call used: 9A8DV
Date: 25/07/2015
Operators: IK6JNH, IK6VXO, IK8UND, IZ6CRK, IZ6TSA


As the last two past editions, this year we are back again with two more operators and we tested, in the island for the first time, the in-band station. We had some problems with antennas due to a storm the previous Thursday that broke 40m vertical, a must and dropped the 80m vertical but finally everything was replaced and fixed before the contest. The propagation also was a problem especially in 10m and 15m, in fact our target is not reached at all. On the other hands low bands were quite good with some nice pileup  still difficult because of the low power. We also had some issues from the power supply system: we were run out of power from the solar system in the Sunday morning before the sun rose so we were obliged to use the power generator and after all we missed half an hour of the contest.

At the end, it was a fantastic week with friends and full of fun and good food (HI!). IZ6CRK and IK8UND did a fantastic job in CW and seeking multipliers, TNX! Thanks also to the others operators who made this contest possible, specially IK6JNH.

Now let’s wait the results by the contest committee.

Edit 6 October 2015:

Final scores are out, you can check here for our category. Second place for the second time, we did a great work with multipliers but still too less qsos to beat our friends from Guernsey. Congrats guys!
Hope to see all of you next year. Stay tuned for more infos.
