BCC MS-Contest 2009 – Ergebnisse
Im BCC MS Contest 2009 konnte eine weitere Zunahme der aktiven Stationen, vor allem im Osten Europas, verzeichnet werden. Mit Zunahme der Aktivität verteilten sich die QSOs fast gleichmäßig auf den 11., 12. Und 13. Dezember, die Spitze lag an diesen Tagen stets zwischen 20 und 22 Uhr UTC. Aber auch die frühen Morgenstunden sowie der Vormittag wurde häufig für die Verbindungen genutzt. Hier lag das Maximum am 13. Dezember.
HSCW als Betriebsart wurde nur noch in wenigen Fällen verwendet. Insgesamt wurden 2009 über 540 unterschiedliche Rufzeichen aus 44 DXCC Ländern geloggt, die Fehlerquote lag erfreulich niedrig. Hier noch die Länderbeteiligung und die Entwicklung über die letzten Jahre:

Back to Sicily again from Sardinia first days of october, still no antennas on my roof; but it is impossible for me do not partecipate to the BCC Geminids Contest,so put my 8JXX2 antenna inside balcony and was active in the peack. Few qso, butalways very funny!
Another fun trip and this time we were three operators allowing for a bigger effort. This year we were also active on 50 MHz and 70 MHz. The latter was a new band in Norway in November 2009. We managed to work 53 QSOs mainly on MS and also work 11 Most Wanted Contest points www.rudius.net/mwd/contest.php
On 144 MHz we made our best result ever despite a slower start then usual. Furthermore were we subject to the volatile automated fuses in the cabin. Time after time we have to reset them. On 12 at 2040 UTC the mains supply to the cabin was lost. At first we thought it was a fuse on the external high voltage line. Fortunately we managed to locate an automated fuse placed on the outside of the cabin. Some 20 minutes we were back on air. In total we made 18 Most Wanted Contest points.
During daytime we were skiing in Hemsedal that was recently chosen as the number one alpine skiing location in Norway. OK it is not the Alps but why not combine both radio and skiing?
So after another successful 2009 trip where should we go in 2010? Please help us in the planning by telling what squares and DXCCs you would like to work. Do this at VUSHF DX-peditions Most Wanted DX www.rudius.net/mwd/update.php

Thank for contest! It is my first MS contest. I have learn work after half of contest, hi!
Had a nice time running this contest from a summer holiday house in Normandy. The QTH was at sea level, but takeoff was very good to N/E and E. There was a DX-cluster announcement from RA3WDK that he received a burst: 140/2 from me at 2631 km! I decided to go to the IN99 square because it was wanted by > 40% of the stations and I hope I was able to work a lot of them. A bit strange: I just worked a few stations from the Scandinavian region¡¡. OH and SM station produced good signals at my QTH. When taking down the antenna after the contest the owner of the house told me that I produced ’nice TVI‘ all over the weekend; also at the neighbours: I was very glad they did not complain earlier!
There was good activity, but difficult to work stations over 1800 km. The peak was shorter than last year and around 05 UTC on 14 December as expected, but lasted around 30 minutes only. It seems, that more and more stations are active in Russia and Ukraine and many antennas are beaming east and north-east, not good for F- stations!
Unfortunately we were unable to cover full contest time. Lot of wx problems, snow & ice on antenna, especially last contest day when we had difficulties even to reach location. Activity from G, DL and some other countries was lower as expected.
Thank you for the realized QSO.
Unfortunately, we didn¡¯t manage to realize our initial plans because of some problems that occurred in the supply which made us work with 100W only (transceiver). I hope we can organize an expedition the next year, an expedition with which we can make those, who couldn¡¯t realize QSO with us, glad.

thanks for all the nice MS activity during the past GEMINIDS MS Shower. I was on with DR5O Call for some hours but most of time was used (together with team member IV3NDC) to update the MMMonVHF MS-Prop. Page http://www.mmmonvhf.de/ms.php
We was able to setup an up to date MS Square OVERVIEW during these METEOR SHOWER and pass comments who was where qrv. In detail please do check:
In case of any further activities you will be very welcome to
use the VHF-DX-Portal MMMonVHF ( http://www.mmmonvhf.de/ )
We do wish you and your families a very good new year 2010
and hope to meet you where ever we or you will be qrv!
Here a good WX accompanying Geminids shower this year. Low noise and good sigs specially from East.
Peak as predicted. Heard some other guys but didn¡¯t worked them as they mainly pointing toward UA-SV-YM3M special call and so on.. Worked also three more stations by sked, so they are not in the above log.
Definitely my WWloc is dead, think no more interest in it. I think next year will attempt to activate some less used locator and hope to be more listened on my frequency from interested square hunters.
That’s all folk, thanks and compliments for your organization efforts.
Tnx for the nice contest!
Happy New Year!
The activity was as good as last year.Our result turned out to be lower,as after few ours we lost two LNA’s ,new chinese connectors in commutator was to blame.,and we had to work with one antenna. We used wideband receiver for some first hours,which got signals from two antennas with LNA’s. We were very pleased it’s operation. BCC contest we like very much, maybe much better than EME contests now,especially Alexey, and hope the europeans like it too.
The peak of the shower was in the evening December 13.
… Not a big score, but hard to do random MS with QRP from a poor QTH!
