Using just the K3 with its 8W output and my (previously unused) portable F9FT 144MHz yagi some reasonable DX was worked as there was a concurrent region 1 contest meaning lots of EU DX. The backpackers continues for 1 hour after the Region 1 contest (stupid idea!) which means QSOs are sparse/non existant during that period. The only getaway was DF0MU, despite many attempts
For a change we used G5NF/P. Two stations complained about the missing W in the callsign!
