|Set-up at OZFF-0100 - wire up in a tree
In total I logged 107 different OMs from 22 DXCCs with most activity from I, DL, G, PA and SP.
I quickly dismantled my station and left for OZFF-0098 to meet up with Jakob OZ7AEI and Finn OZ3FI of the OZFF team. I know Jakob already from the start of the WWFF program but so far we had only had contact via e-mail and SSB.
I arrived at the designated location to find Jakob and Finn already there. We had a quick chat but decided we could not let the chasers wait for too long.
We spread out a bit to make the station to station QRM bearable. Finn went for 17m and 30m CW and Jakob and I used 20m and 40m. Finn had issues with his battery, which meant he had to stop operations early. We took a break and had some time for coffee and chat.

Finn then left us and Jakob and I continued on 20m and 40m.
In about 1,5 hours radio time (we spent about the same time chatting) I logged 105 different chasers from 28 DXCC evenly spread over 20m and 40m. Jakob also logged 100+ QSOs on the same bands.
On 40m I used a delta loop and on 20m an end fed vertical on an 18m pole. Most chasers I logged were OMs from DL, I, SP and PA.
It was great fun meeting fellow WWFF enthusiasts in person and of course all the usual suspects over the radio.
