During Perseids 9th-14th Aug I was in KP51at working random MS CW.
So it was like a real holiday, just lying in my van and only sleeping, drinking, eating and smoking. If somebody would pay salary, that is my new profession. In van was not lonely feelings, because there was flies, spiders, mosquitoes and lizards. In some nights temperature was only abt 4 degree, because my linear was too little...
Sometimes I received infos, that I don't have RX... I think that problem and I found some reasons
But I was not only one, who had problem with RX. Sometime during qso I heard some other stations who was calling me. Best was about 40 burst during one qso. I didn't chance qso partner in those cases, so next time You would also listen with whom I have qso going on (nothing personal, but pleasegentleman). That was during maximum, so in any case problem was not, that other stations didn't hear my burst enough well. So it was not good idea to take 2 or more call after cq and start automatically next qso when first was completed. Time to time second station was not anymore QRV when I tried qso, maybe QSYed to sked.
And it log.

no pre amp...
Qsl is ok via buro. If you want direct, my address is
OH5YW commander of OH5LIZ to have second DTR with me, just for safe. Kari was also pilot station to Digital VHF net.
OH6KTL Lasse, second pilot station.
OH5BM Tapani, who borrow second linear for safe. BTW, Tapani was also in KP51 1981 or 1982 working MS, we just wondered that KP51 was still vanity sqr ;-))) So a few new station in gamed to MS during last 16 years.
OH5NXO Juha, who made my laptop for 12v use. Now it was not necessary to keep hole time aggregator on. I worked abt 3 hour with batteries (total extra battery capacity 280 AH) when charged again. I had 40 A charger for that use.
And tnx to everybody, who called me via telephone or radio. It was great time to be first time in Perseids. I get 6 new DXCC OK, ON, OM, PA, YU and 9A.
At least 21 new sqr. JN39, JN49, JN68, JN69, JN85, JN86, JO20, JO21, JO22, JO23, JO33, JO41, JO42, JO53, JO65, JO70, JO71, JO81, JO90, KN05, KO03 via MS & KP46 via Tropo.
In Finland we can count sqr what is worked inside 100 km circle, center point don't must be home QTH, and why not also future Dubus list "only one callsing or one qth". I can use my call without any /P or /number from KO19 to KP39 and from KP03 to KP53. Only in OH0 we must use /0 or /OH0.
In future I try to make setup in my home qth. Just only planning, too L(a)ZY for starting repairing here KP41kl...
Pse, update your missing sqrs to Guido, DL8EBW Most Wanted Sqr list. It is nice list when look next expedition place.
I'm not master of small talk, so I wrote a novel with miserable English...
