MADEIRA

Madeira is a great place where I have been several times with success.

My first visit to Madeira was in February 2019 and I was staying at a hotel in Porto Moniz where I mounted a Diamond BB7V antenne for 80-10m and used my Elecraft K3.
I used my Portoguise call sign CT9ABR and participated in ARRL DX CW Contest with limited result. See result

Second trip to the island was in May 2019 to participate in the King of Spain contest and i stayed in Ponta Delgada where I used Windom Antenna 80-10m and my K3 radio. Participated in King of Spain CW Contest with a nice result. See result

Third time on Madeira in August 2019 I had arrangement with Ricardo CT3KN that I could use hes shack and antenna. I sent a Windom 160-10m antenna to him in advance and he mounted it in his tower so everything worked when I arrived.   My participation was for the WAEDC CW Contest as a DX station and with call sign CR3EE. I had a great time in the "Pátio da torre" and got a really nice result in the contest. See result

Next time I go to Madeira will be February 2020 and I will be active from Ricardos "Tower Farm" with my special call sign CR3EE.

MALTA

I have been in Malta two times (at this moment 1/1-2020) and non oF them gave me good results in contests.
The reason for this was the high level of noise on the bands. Big QRN did it impossible for me to hear stations outside EU and many US stations was calling me with no response. That was not good.
I used my Elecraft K3 and a 21mtr wire antenna and a 10mtr high vertical.

       

SICILY

I have only visited Sicily once and it was on a family holiday. I brought my Ten Tec Eagle radio and a Buddipole antenna. That was no success at all and I only had few contacts.
But the island was nice and I climbed to the top of Etna and we all had a wonderful time spend at a big house.
