Hard to set up the new 80meters band ground plane antenna due the bad weather on Friday.
In spite of the mud we had to set up and fixing 2 more beverages to cover azimuth angle to Asia and Europe.

No good propagation on lower bands, lot of QRN , wind and rain.
20 and 15 meters as usual. Poor propagation on 10meter to the State Side.
At the last we had more than 4000 QSOs and 15mil points.

ARRL DX SSB 2013

We was third EU last year, today we are behind of EI7M CS2C ED1R by declared score, geography makes weight. Excellent opening on 10meter on Sunday afternoon, 15m and 20m as usual protagonists, on 40m missed W7, hard working for ID-WY-UT-MT-NV. Eighty and 160 meter very poor the first night. The 300 meter long beverage has made a great job on 40meter also..
