IARU UHF SHF Contest 2010 - LY2WR

Coming to VHF QTH from Vilnius (80km by road) had a lot of optimism, as Heburn Tropo Forecast looked quite promissing for the weekend.
LY2WR arrival
It was calm even on Gedanonys hilltop, 245m above sea level. About 60kg of gear, food and water to be carried up the stairs further 40 meters to LY2WR shack.

Unfortunately, tropo was just average, for 3rd year we are waiting for troposferic duct conditions to coincide with one of the large european contests.

All in all, we are happy about the results, which are better than in 2009.Contest Report from LY2WR in KO24FO at 432 MHz
