Work constraints limited the participation in the contest. It was fun to try Classic 24h with single radio, but the second radio was really missing sometimes when rates were slow and mults were needed. I have downloaded a freeware audio recording application which stopped recording time-to time.

Second radio boiled its pa module after about 10 hours of operation. lost time with figuring out the rootcause and trying to fix it. no backup plan this time. decent rates even with so1r, but no mults answering to CQs..:-((( needed to stop for s&p; further time wasted, ended below expectations. valuable learnings from dueling cq while both radios were operational. succeed to synchronize the length of a cq (number of characters at a readable speed) harmonized to an average length of answer from the other radio. setup: ftdx5000mp + k3 (rip) ea4tx interlock, 4o3a combiner & bpfilters 2 x microham station master, u2r for so2r audio, 2x10 ant switch networked dell pc (2) kt36xa, 2L40m Yagi, inverted L 80/160m 73, Gabor

It became a part time activity due to a couple of reasons. Originally wanted to enter in SOAB to test the brand new setup and practice dueling CQ, but the low band antennas are far to be ready for an ARRL DX. Thus, decided to go for 20m only.

Started Saturday on 40m and kept checking if 20m is open during the dark, but it was not..those days are gone.. this privilege is for the Scandinavian stations for the coming years. So, started late morning on 20m like everybody else and closed the day with 490 QSOs and 56 mults around 22:00UTC quite disappointed, anticipating the second day QSO count total would be below 1,000. Tought it is better to go back the original idea of testing the EA4TX interlock and practicing alternate CQing on 20/15. It was found to be fun, and gave a good learning experience after the Morse Runner simulator.
