Also thanks to fiends Thomas PY2ZXU and Ville PY2ZEA on doing some station maintenance at ZW5B couple weeks prior to my operation. Everything worked quite well despite small hick-ups especially with paddle and 2nd radio (K-3). I ended up not using K-3 very much, I felt something strange was going on with roofing filter when it switched to below 500 Hz. I had TS-590 with me to test it out on more crowded operating conditions and it seems like nice equipment. 10 m seemed bit weak for me, signals were not very strong. I should have probably just stayed more on 15 m which had very nice condx entire weekend. I was not optimizing breaks very much as I had flight back to Sao Paulo before contest ended and needed to finish 36 hrs well before the end, so I missed some of the best operating time at the end. Congratulations to Rafa PY2NDX for fine score at another Oms superstation PT5T. At least I made him to work for his WRTC qualifying points. Also, I think Ville PY2ZEA showed us all how it is done with simple set-up at PW0F. 73 & CU in CQ WW DX SSB from ZD8O Marko N5ZO / PY2ZZO ZW5B station in this contest: Trcvrs TS-590 + K-3 Amps 2 x Alpha 77 40 m 4 el 20 m 2 x 6 el 15 m 2 x 7 el 10 m 2 x 8 el + 4 x 5 el H-frame array N1MM logger
