preparing for PACC

Just home from a long trip doing Ecudor including Galapagos.
very nice trip beautiful country and nice people.
If you have time&money: do it!

When I came home the world was white and frozen.
Temperatures have been very low the last week, so the ground is hard as rock!
I wanted to erect my 80M inverted L but failed to get the poles of the guy-lines into the ground!

Saterday the PACC is on and I need 80M for a number of multipliers but that will be a problem.
Tomorrow a new try with hot pins and and strong hammer….

This evening worked FW0NAR on 30M cw, nice DX.
Heard ZK2C on 40M RTTY but polar fading was strong so no qso.
