2006 WW-CW, author RW1AC [ENG]

Hello ,

Both CQ WW SSB/CW was a disappointment this year because of the bad propagation. After the successful last year's WW CW (First Place EU M/2) we decided to improve our setup.

This time that was a 40 meters project. We build a monster 4 element, 24 meters boom yagi and H-type stacked four of them fixed to US. The top two are rotatable thought. This is a copy of our 20m and 10m stacks, which played perfectly.

We spended every weekend in the entire Summer finishing the job. The Antenna came out perfect. The difference between a single four element antenna in regular (no Aurora) propagation is 1-2 S-units!

160: The major improvement althought was to cross the 100 countrys and 30 zones line on the Top Band. UA1ARX's unique operating skills gave us a boost in 160m band performance.

80: Alex, RU1AA is a very good and trained operator, who specializing in EME Q's, took an 80m band and for the first time in his life worked 38 zones, with a 99% chance forking all 40 of them! We heard 5H3EE and Zone 6 (Mexico) and even tried to work them, but unfortunately the propagation was not on our side this year. We worked a small amount of US stations with three element wire-yagi...

40: Our 40m antenna helped us work US during the daytime via the short path, but the technical problems with the receiving did not gave us a chance to use this antenna in full potential.

15: We worked only 13 JA's for the entire contest on 15 mtrs! Being so close to the East and having such a good antennas for this band didn't help at all!

10: As usual 10 meters gave us a chance to work a few mults from the Carribean, but we didn't worked a single State Side station...

Congrats to the EA6IB and IR4X with their fantastic results and thanks for the competition!
