3. peculiaritiy

- We used four homemade 4-Square-Arrays (15m, 20m, 30m, 40m) in time.
- The stations in the tents used UCX-Log and were connected to each other via WLAN.
- For the 80m-band-vertical a 18m long glassfiber-pole was mounted and the antenna matched by
  a miniVNA-analyzer. A
K9AY-Loop-Array was used for RX-antenna.
- On 15m within less than 2 hours we reached
among others 64 contacts to Japan (JA) and 4 contacts to South Korea (HL).
- We made practise for the first time in digital mode DOMINO.

The radio stations were placed in tents, spread over the whole area

In the east corner of the area, after the service house, the 4-Square-Array for 40m was put.
The radio-station was in the tent on the left side
