Some problems with an amplifier made QRX for some hours to the multiplier
station. Rejection between RUN and MULT station was abt 50 dB with horizontal
polarization in the run station and a vertical about 150 meters far from the
main antennas. Some fuses were blown in the RX protection circuit. The K3 did a
very good job in the run station. Propagation was good but it in not the best on
10 meters yet. Worked only few W6 in direct path with very low signals in late
afternoon then some good multipliers from USA west coast, rocky mountains,
beaming to South America (we have a good panorama to the sea in that direction)
with very weak but stable signals. Comments wanted on our signal as the TX
antenna height was studied and varied during the contest for best results. In
reverse beacon network we see that our signal is not so strong as other
europeans stations (ie. IO5O) but maybe propagation was longer in out southern
QTH. Next year we will try to beat the italian IR4T record. Tnx to everybody
for the QSO. QSL will be ok via IT9CHU or LotW.
