CQWW CW 2013- summary

It has been a few great days in Kuching!!!

I managed to catch up with few of my friends: 9M8MA, 9W8CH, 9W8KIF, 9M8WAT and met for a first time with 9M8ADX. Great stories, great food and some great QSO’s. With the assistance of Keith 9W8KIF we put up a sloping LW to cover 160-40m bands with a  use of AH4 tuner. Location of the sloper was what I have done in the past. I did not notice at first but now there is a big neon sign with hotel name. (see picture) This gave me a bit of noise on 80/40/30m bands and completely “disabled” 160m. Oh well, can’t win them all. I operated as LPAB Assisted and had a thrill. Not as many pile ups as in the past, as I think low power stations slowly disappear in the QRO noise. My score is as per attached.  I also managed to have a real feast of the durians which happen to be in season at this time of the year. What a great trip 🙂
