CONDITIONS GOOD FIRST DAY, BUT DETERIORATED ON THE SECOND QSO COUNT DOWN ON LAST YEAR BUT STILL GOOD FUN. ONLY TWO OF US OPERATING IN TURN, WE USE ONLY ONE TRANSMITTER
The ZM4T team set out to achieve a record score for ZL. We knew it was possible. To win a team must have a perfect combination of quality operators, equipment and antennas. It happened for us this year. Everything went right for a change. We didn't blow up any amplifiers or radios. Our computer networking worked perfectly and Murphy visited somewhere else this year. Even though we were apprehensive about the new rules we set the record. Oh what a feeling! Can you please assign 20% of the points for one of our team members ZL3IO to German club BCC (ZL3IO)
SO LP ALL
