CT9 - Madeira 2021
We had our for March, 2021 planned trip moved caused by Corona to November. With a registration at the health authorities of the island were immigration and stay no problem. To experience Madeira in autumn, is also miraculous.
The propagation conditions did not meet expectations. The attenuation on the higher bands weakened the signals of Europe known from other years by about 3 S-stages. Short-term QSB and digital QRM from the house became a problem. Only the signals from longer distances (e.g. LU or ZL) were stable.
It came about 700 QSOs to the log - so little as never before.
Station as since 2010: TRX IC-7000, tuner AH-4, aerial 7 m vertically
at the same hotel Cais da Oliviera, Canico de Baixo, IM12OP 04ID

Holiday and radio operation 08.-22.09.2020: OZ6SYL
Two week in the nature of Denmark. Very nice to see the visitors roe deer, squirrel, many birds ...
The propagation was not the best; especially the 17m band was missing. But indifferent:
QSO is a QSO also on the 40 m band. At last was 907 QSOs in the log - 600 of them got in the CW part of the Scandinavian Activity Contest. Paper cards are sure, eQSLs are uploaded.
Thank you to Inger, OZ7AGR, for the permission to use again the call sign of SYLRA: OZ6SYL.
