A limited time for this one this year.About 20 hour in the chair. 
Had some issues whit my back after falling on the ice on thursday.
So had a problem with sitting in the chair....I think conds was ok.
40 and 80 mtr had very much activity from Europe,rtty gets big in EU.
15 mtr also was open for some time,worked NA on 15 and 20 mtr with
My GP7DX Vertical antenna, This vertical suprice me time after time.
My 10 to 20 mtr beam is locked to 70° east and my 40 mtr is facing
To 330/150 ° must change the rotor this year ,think I easly can make
1200 qsos low-power with this set up.....neXt year...neXt year...
Since 2015 I had a problem with a Norwegian ham fellow...
He think I'm running high power since my rotary dipole on 40 mtr
gets better rbn reports than his fd4/ butternut, So again I have 
give you some work...and headpine...a lot of rbn spot to check again...
Poor poor man ..get a life...wake up...slutty girl..

TL8TT

The Italian dxpedition team has been on tour again,
This time to Central African Republic, callsign was TL8TT.
They made 63152 qsos, was not easy to break the pile-up
It was an endless row of Italian stations calling and it was
 not easy to break this and make a qso,but after some days
I was able to make qsos also , my goal was to get one Rtty qso
They made  3388 qsos on rtty my qso was # 1804
The Italian dxpedition team have a superb log check
You make a qso and one minute later you can check their
website and you can see if you made it, a superb tool.
Realy wish all expedition had this tool 👍
As always, fun to follow this gang, they are great ops
Many hour's with hunting on the air ,not so easy for me
since I'm running low power and my big beam antenna are
locked to 70 ° east, so all qsos on 15-17-20 mtr was on my
GP7DX Vertical antenna ,this vertical is from a Polish Antenna Company.
Solid construction, perform very well worked 204 DXCC with this
antenna in 2016 If you are looking for a vertical....buy this.
30 and 40 mtr was just plug and play,my rotary dipole works very well.
80 and 160 mtr qsos was pure luck, was made before dx-cluster spot.
Once again ,thanks guy's nice show,will look for you from
The neXt one.....photo from their homepage.
