The contest was a great succes as far as I understand from the different
participants. This year also for the first time enough QSO's for the 47
GHz section (4 stations QRV which all made QSO's) . The weather was very
good but some of the stations were very unlucky with their location with
respect to musquito's. When I visited PA/DK2MN/p his location was black
of the large amount of mosquito's which was not very pleasant.
In the contest also about twelve different home stations participated
to stimulate activity which gave some of the portable stations a very
good best dx.
Some of the participants already signed up for the contest next year for
which I hope that even more stations will be on 47 GHz. Also the first
QSO on 76 Ghz in PA still has to be made. A test between PA0JGF/p and
PA0EHG/p in this contest failed.
So lets set a goal to more stations on 47 GHz and the first QSO's on 76 GHz for the
next year's contest.
Thanks to all stations for participating in this event. Special thanks
also for the stations from Belgium and Germany for their long travel and
sure we hope you will all be QRV during the next Ysselmeercontest in
2001. As soon as the date for 2001 is set, I will inform you all by
e-mail or via my website.
