Dime (Z35Z) & Igor (Z32ID)
We finished the September IARU Region I contest with our new QSO record (160). Unfortunately, we didn't have time to tune the 2nd antenna group, so we run the contest with only 4x6 el. YAGI. Due to unexpected rain, we could finish installation at 16:30 UTC (18:30 local time), so we lost 2.5 hours.

We noticed signals in every 20kHz of a YT and a 4N station, but it didn't cause any problem for us.
Several station confirmed our clean signal. Only 1 YU station complained, but most probably its set up could not handle large signals (RX side problem).
We received feedback, that we couldn't hear several OM, OK station. We shall check next time the impact of Cosmofon tower in 340 degree. Maybe the 2nd antenna group or new location shall solve this problem.
