This station with the contest call A44A is going to create many a "Storm in the Desert" in the contesting world in future - this is just the beginning folks! Solid performances were contributed by all members of the operating team racking up a great score with team guidance & contest strategy by Prasad A45VA (VU2PTT) and terrific operating by veteran Mohib A41JZ, San A45WH (VU2WH), Pai A45VI (VU2PAI) and "Mult Specialist" Paul A45VB (G7SLP) who kept jumping between the 2 mult stations. Special mention must be made of the support team who would just sit with us right through the contest - some full time - some coming and going every now and then through out the contest while keeping us well fed and really taken care of.
