As usual operations with Multi Operators, besides being more challenging bring along a frat party and long friendships.
This time we had the following participants:
PY2NDX (Rafa), PY2YU (Ton), PY2EYE (Nilsão), PY3KN (Caiper), PY5KD (Luciano), PU5RAS (Rafa son PY5KD), PP5XX (Peter), PY5EG (Atilano) and PU5MCO (Marcia in the kitchen of XTAL PY5EG)
Besides this team had the satisfaction of receiving the John Peter xtaloide the PY2NDX that already with the Morse code again decorated
Peter coordinating the upgrade of this station and everything worked perfect without any defect in any equipment. The DB-42 antennas installed by Peter promote flexibility and several alternative operation that helped us a lot.
I believe that hunting the multiplier was very good and almost the same levels of the old operations ZW5B.
Peter will put some pictures today of the operation.
The odd half spread as a result of very high K although fairly high flow and believe with solar flares that should have declined to participate in the Northern Hemisphere.
All operators are fans of WAEDC and the general opinion is that it is one of the most challenging contests in view of QTCs and free range for multipliers.
