Good start into the V/U/SHF contest season

After a very successful 2022 contest season with DLØGTH, I joined the DKØNA contest team for the 2023 season. The location in JO5ØTI usually is not the best in Europe but in winter conditions it was an advantage to operate 700m a.s.l. Even there, we had problems with ice on 70cm antennas forcing us to install a backup antenna which worked well. The tropo conds were poor with a rather slow start into the contest. Even with some small technical problems we were more than satisfied at the end of the March subregional contest.
