2007 was a close race of the M/S class in Germany. We were lucky and happy that we made it! We were active a lot during the last years but we have never won it.

This was the first contest for us in M/S class after several month. We have been pretty busy in putting up a new 27m high tower and antennas on it.

We also changed our very old caravan to a newer and bigger one. That was much work and the WAG Contest was the first real test for the new antenna system and station. We are happy with the antennas and I think the work payed off !
In the Contest we had a lot of fun and the activity was very good. The conditions could have been better (like they were the days before the Contest) but for the bottom of the cycle it was great to see 15m open. 20m was also nice.

We had a great run to NA. 40m was also in good shape and we really enjoyed to have our 2 ele beam up on the new tower after long time on the ground. 80m was difficult with pretty high QRN level. On 10m every QSO was hard work, but it was interesting to hear, what is possible, even with no sunspots. We moved many stations from other bands there and thanks to all stations, who moved with us over the bands !
Thanks also to Maik, DJ2QV who made a long drive by car to operate with us again and bringing some equipment.
MANY THANKS to all, who gave us a call in the contest and we hope to meet you soon on the bands again !
