We all enjoyed this Field day style M/S operation from beautiful Corsica. Great
team spirit was held during preparation phase (3 days), the contest and after
disassembly (5 hours).

In total we have erected 17 antennas with portable towers and spider beam
160m: INV L + JA&USA beverage + K9AY
80m: Vertical + JA&USA beverage + INV/V + K9AY
40m: 4SQ + multiband vertical
20m: Spider beam + multiband vertical + VDA + A4S
15m: Spider beam + multiband vertical + A4S
10m: Spider beam + multiband vertical + A4S

Rig: TS590S, IC7600, FT1000MP
APM: OM Power 2500a, TL 922, Expert 1K-FA

Main highlight would be experience of being on other side of the pile up.

Main downside is MULT station problems where many, many calls were needed
sometimes to work a MULT. This also shows on the final sum of the mult.
Definitely room for improvement here.

S55M wrote an interesting remark to us saying that we have the best ratio of
points achieved vs. kilograms of equipment of all stations in this contest.
This is somehow true as we kept our goal – one van + one car activation limit.
