This is the link with the comments to final results and this one is the link with the comments to the radio traffic during the 2022 contest. The last year i participated with my special contest call IR3L.

My setup is the usual one. 100 watt to a multidipole inverted V 13 metrers high for 80 and 40 metres bands and two elements cubic quad for 20, 15 and 10 metres bands about 15 metres high. So please answer to my cq even if my signal is low for qso and give me as much qtc as possible. I will appreciate very much. Remember this year my call sign is I3FDZ.

Tks for reading and i see you in the contest
