Congratulations to the FISTS team: SV0XBN/9 G3ZOD G4LHI G0ILN PA3AFF M0DRK G0EML 2E0DPH OH5FNI Excerpts from the soap box: SV0XBN/9: I am sorry that I was limited to 20m only and could only spend a short time on the band. It was good to work some new operators. G4LHI: I really do enjoy this event & being able to work on as many bands as possible, especially with the local guys, it´s very good practice & also ensures that the different antennae work properly now & again, it certainly makes a nice change from the usual bands we work on. It is also nice to be able to have good old fashioned rag chews & catch up with old & new friends. I must say, I am afraid, the event did not seem to be as well populated as other years. G0ILN: ... which I thoroughly enjoyed. DJ6UX: Ohne SOCWA haette das dieses Jahr aber traurig ausgesehen. Besonders enttaeuschend ist die praktisch nicht vorhandene Unterstuetzung durch AGCW-Mitglieder. Oder meiden die einfach nur das Hotband? DL2FCA: Leider sind es nur 32 QSOs geworden, dennoch bin ich froh, dass ich überhaupt dabei sein konnte... 2E0DPH: I found activity quite limited, perhaps it was the fact that I only had limited time when I was able to take part, I hope you have still had good support for the EuCW QRS activity week. OE6GWG: Leider konnte ich heuer nicht an der EuCW Fraternizing CW Party teilnehmen da zu dieser Zeit in Laa an der Thaya eine Funkausstellung stattfand und ich am Stand der OECWG Werbung für die Betriebsart CW machte. IK2RMZ: Believe it or not, this was the most successful QRSW ever, at least the number of incoming logs reached a record high. However, this is not a measure for success. The highlight for me was that one of the participants told me it was his very first CW qso in a life time. Another element which matters is how many QRS stations are actually heard during the QRSW. A nice tool to measure this is the Reverse Beacon Network. It is a network of receivers scanning the CW bands for CQ calls. Congratulations to the holders of high RBN counts, these op did really call CQ patiently.
