DL6MHWASSISTED HIGHI love this contest. Much work to setup antennas. But nice score and more than 100 DX contacts. Always amanzing to study the signals from overseas, waiting for some peak. Missing the DXpeditions.

DM4MNASSISTED LOWI had a lot of fun for about 2 and 1/2 hour -- bit training maby next year more time. VY 73 de Mario DM4MN
DM6EEASSISTED LOWWas a nice contest. With a dipole not very high more is not possible. Better antennas needed.
DM7CSINGLE-OP QRPMy first CQWW 160m with qrp. I was surprised how much QSOs I can get with only 5 watts. Due to weather conditions and covid restrictions the decision to do QRP was right. The INV L was quick ready to work and the small Yeasu worked perfectly if no so much
DR4WMULTI-OPMurphy came on Friday, but we could solve the problem . Many contacts and lot of experience. That will help for further activities
EA6SXSINGLE-OP HIGHBad conditions and it seems not much activity on CW as before, but as always I enjoy a lot and I do my best. SR & SS make the magic on hard DX as always. Fortunately the COVID19 pandemic, has left me without neighbors QRM. Thanks friends for calling me. 7
EA7XASSISTED HIGHTwo hours after the start I had to stop as the TX antenna went faulty. We managed to fix it termporarily for the second night until it failed again in the morning. Thanks to my lovely hosts Bego and Raul, EC7WR. FTDX101d + Powergenius amp + 1/4 wl vertica
ED8WASSISTED HIGHThis was the very first real serious remote contest operation from ED8W QTH. IC-7610 controlled by N1MM logging software proved as a perfect combination. Is not the same as siting directly behind the radio, but I could adapt to that conditions re I would

G4LSINGLE-OP HIGHJust a token entry really as now have too much noise on 160m.
G4RGKASSISTED LOWLast minute minimalist effort, I put up a 132ft best bent wire at 25ft in a horizontal V shape and used a K2 at 100w, really difficult to crack the pile ups
G5WASSISTED HIGHMixed conditions. Hard work to the Far East until the Sunday evening. US mediocre until two spectacular pre-dawn peaks. High European activitiy and clicks made the weaker QSOs hard Great contest.
GU4YOXSINGLE-OP HIGHMy amplifier failed after 11 QSO's hence 80W Low Power all first night. I had to stop operating Saturday morning due to Covid contact and had to isolate immediately and leave site. Next year should be better! Thanks for the QSO's 73 Bob GU4YOX
