I’ll be operating from EM23jd the whole contest with no sleep and 2 coffee pots going. I have spent the last 4 months rebuilding the whole antenna/tower system and fine tuning it with new LDF5 feed lines and flat SWR on all bands. I’ll be working 4 bands ( 50/144/432/1296) instead of 5. The 222 Transverter decided it wanted to give up during testing this week so I lost a band and can not get a replacement in time.
I only know of 2 Hams that work contest periodically from EM23 and most run single band IF they operate. If you need a multiplier watch for me or send me a sched request and we’ll make it happen for any band or mode.
I rotate the beams by the clock when calling CQ
