October 2018: Two sides of the same contest:


This year, the IARU UHF-/SHF-contest started really promising. We just finished
setting up the big equipment in time while weather was as excellent it could be:
extraordinary warm, sunny and calm. We started the race with record-breaking first
hour QSO rates and could catch some good DX until midnight, e.g. OL9W and OK2C
on 3cm with good signals, usually they are very hard to work. Things went on very
well until sleep time around 0000ut. On Sunday morning the weather changed to
extreme fog and it soon started to drizzle constantly until the end of contest.
Likewise, the conditions (or participation?) felt down below normal so that we reached
a good result but not that records as expected. Equipment worked well all the time
except some minor problems with Internet connection on Sunday morning.
Highlights were another "full house" with M1CRO/P on 432MHz >> 10GHz (675km)
and the first ever Laser QSOs from JO50JP over 71km and 37km, for details see:

Due to the adverse weather conditions, no QSO on 122GHz this time.
