look to south (direction to Italy)

August NAC 2014 - 2m

term: 5.8.2014, hill Krechor (333 m ASL),OK1FEN/P JO70NA

I arrived on hill later and mounting of antenna and mass building took more time than obviously. I used another place on hill, because I found surprisingly good opening to Italy in last contest. One and half hour after contest begin I started with QSO to Italy (SSB, weak but fully readable signal). I did 4 strong near stations which was on band and tried to call next I station. It takes 20 minutes on CW, but with finished QSO. Next half an hour i tried to call next two stations from Italy (result=NIL). So one hour before end of contest I had only one QSO with nordic station. During this hour I did 3 more (next 2 NIL) and few distant SP stations (2 NIL).In last minute I finished QSO with DL.
Conditions I evaluate like normal with slow fall down. In the middle of contest fell rain, but only 10 minutes.
