Weather forecast was not promising: after a week with beautiful sunshine the weekend was forecasted as rainy and windy. But we were in luck this time! On a calm and sunny Friday afternoon we could start with setting up the first two 70cm antennas. We continued works on Saturday in bright sunshine and finished a liitle bit late on the microwaves due to several technical issues. Then everything went normal while the nice weather turned into a foggy, rainy and stormy evening. The night was really restless due to strong wind gusts proofing our masts and ropes. Sunday wasn't better either, completing a couple of microwave QSOs from tripods was no fun at all! The rest of the crew (warm and dry inside the vans) enjoyed a stunning head-to-head race with DR9A which kept us busy until the end of competition. And again we were in luck: bad weather stops right when we started dismantling the station at Sunday afternoon. Results were excellent on 70cm, a little bit below expectations on the microwaves. Maybe caused by lack of activity due to Corana restrictions.

Special highlight was a 24GHz contact with DR9A over 279km which is now our all time ODX on this band. Listen to our big signal, recorded @ DR9A:
