First place in the YO DX HF contest 2013 for CS8/PA1B

Today I received a beautiful Award of the YO DX HF contest.
Last year I partcipated while on holiday on the beautiful island of Saõ Miguel on the Azores.

During the contest I used an end fed wire on the roof of the hotel.
In the contest I used my FT-817 with 2.5 watts or less and a homemade light weight keyer.

The envelop from Romenia arrived in the rain.
When my wife entered the room with the wet envelop, she said:
"I hope all is OK".
I immediately recognized the envelop of the YO DX contest.
Despite the rain the Award is in good condition, because it is plasticized.

My thank goes to Ovidiu YO2DFA, the contest manager of the
YO DX HF contest.
CS8/PA1B   First place in YO DX HF - Azores - Single OP - 14 MHz - Mix

  1. Good evening Bert, very nice job for contesting and vacationing as well. Nice to see a portable QRP statioin finish first place.

    1. Hello Mike, it's so much fun to take the portable station on holiday in the hotel, but you always must wait to see how to hang the antenna. It's fun to experience what the antenna does. It's great to receive an Award, but it also depends on the other participants from the same country. hi. The YO DX HF is a very nice contest. 73, Bert

  2. Mooi certificaat Bert. Leuk dat je eerste bent geworden. Een indrukwekkende score met QRP(p) lijkt mij. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, dank je. En dan nog wel QRPp en search & pounce. hi. Het is leuk om te ontdekken wat de antenne doet. Elke nieuw QSO is weer bijzonder. 73, Bert
