Yaesu FT5000dx set to 100 watt.
Antennas: Optibeam OB11-5..Optibeam OB40-30
  Fullsize GP for 80 mtr with elevated radials.
 Vertical GP7DX for 10 to 40 mtr..up 10 mtr

My goal for this contest was to push the low Power record
for Norway, the claimed score is about 200k Points over
the old one from 2007, so I hope the log check is good for me.
Antenna situation is still bad for 20 mtr, since the yagi is
locked to the east 90* East, but of course I had a great signal
to the east.I did not work a singel JA in the contest, only heard
some few on 40 mtr . Worked 60 NA on 20 mtr with the vertical.
On sunday evening I was struggling on 20 mtr to get some qsos
So i qsyed to 40 mtr and started to cqing, I was Lucky With the
frequency and get a lot of qsos,this was a smart move since EU
qsos was giving 4 Points pr. qso. My 40 mtr antenna is very good.
Rebuilt my 80 mtr GP for 2 weeks ago, worked very well, low band
was good this weekend, To have sucsess in wpx rtty you must work
40/80 mtr, my prefix are little low ,but I have many 4 Points q's.
Get tired on sunday, work to much the week before, but contesting
is fun. Qso's will be on LOTW ,Qsl is also welcome via the buro..
