CQWWDX 1997: DL1HCM/HI8 active in CW as Single OP All Band Low Power 06.04.2004
DL1HCM/HI8 QSL (dl1hcm) This activity in the Dominican Republic covered the CQWW DX CW Contest 1997 and further CW operation in the following weeks. I arrived in the QTH in Las Terrenas, Samana about one week before the contest starts late in the night. The next morning we started to set up the antennas:

Dipol between two palm trees, about 15m above ground
Pyramide for 80 m on the tower, about 18m up
3 ele yagi for 20m and 10m on the tower
Vertical for 40m and 15m in the grass

The station was an IC735 barefoot with about 100 watts output. Due to power limitation (only a generator was available) I decided for this equipment. Since in EU we have the 230VAC power system I was also limited with the equipment. I did not found a PA and a laptop for 110 VAC powering.
During the week several tests where performed and on friday morning the station was ready. I also found an old laptop (286 CPU) that allows me to log with CT. I received big pileups and most times it was very difficult to hear the EUs or other contonents. The US stations where to strong, altought the beam was directed to EU. In the first night the 80 meter antenna failed. I was located very close to the sea and the antenna contacts where oxydized. I found it out the next morning. That night only about 100 QSOs where entered into the log.
On Saturday I tried to repair the 80 m antenna. But the antenna worked only for a few hours before it the contacts oxydized again. I decided to continue in the contest without 80m. But it was a nice experience climbing up and down the tower in about 30 degrees and not in minus degrees I know from EU, hi.
All other antennas worked fb during the contest. The beam was fixed to EU all the time. The VKs and ZLs are strong via long path and when the band was open to JA I worked the pile up also long path.

I finished the contest with:

Anyway, I had great fun. Thank you to all stations who worked me during the contest and in the two following weeks.
