Club: Comments: Another field style M/2 operation passed from Bozcaada island (IOTA AS-099) with the station setup getting better every year. This time managed to put 10 transmitting antennas on the field, having fixed+rotary antenna combinations on 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. It took us a week to erect and tune them and only 4 hours to dismantle, pack & get on the ferry towards the continent. Missing LZ3YY's participation this year we ended with 6 operators and 5 operating positions ... not that optimal for 48 hours contest so couldn't get the best of the setup, yet band conditions were so good that we (again) forgot to focus on 20 meters while amazed by the rates on 80, 40, 15 and 10 ... although before the contest we all agreed not to do it.

Station setup: TX + RX ant:
160m - Vertical + 6x beverage & k9ay
80m - Vertical + 6x beverage & k9ay
40m - Vertical & Monster Spiderbeam + 6x beverage & k9ay
20m - RR33 fixed & 4L rotary + RR33
15m - 5L fixed & 4L rotary + RR33
10m - 6L fixed & 4L rotary + RR33
