MW6V(M0BEW) CQWPXCW 2015 SOABLP

MW6V(M0BEW) CQWPXCW 2015 SOABLP.

WPX coincided with a holiday this year so I operated from the holiday cottage in Gwbert Ceredigion.
Tremendous QTH with the house being located right on the coastline overlooking the sea. Nothing serious, a casual affair. 
Ran with Wintest, a TS480 and a simple linked dipole. 

Sunset @ MW6V.
Operating position.
Living area.













My activity was on and off throughout the Sunday only as we traveled out on the Saturday.
Being at an unfamiliar location its sometimes hard to gauge the conditions, and with how well this location played towards the west made things even more confusing. However, things did feel pretty good.

Upon setting up the station it was clear there was a local noise. 
A wide band qrm destroyed the upper HF bands. Very disappointing, in any case it wasn't 24/7 and even went quiet for a sporadic hour or two so things were fine.

It was great to part of WPX 2015 and a pleasure to operate from such an idyllic location, and give away the MW6V mult.

Thanks for the qsos.
