The contest REF CUP are known for several years and certainly is for many radio-amateurs an excellent opportunity to communicate with French colonies and other French-speaking countries in the world. Unfortunately the Saturday I don't got so very hot and the Sunday open the station a little bit late. Finally noon I began to do as many QSO I could.
I started at 15 meters band since the 10 was not traffic. Then I goes to 20 and at last to 40 meters until to the end of the contest. Eventually the clock has shown 8 pm local time and I put the microphone down at least I had finish another one contest. At last it came time to eat something and go to rest, because I needed both of them.
The participation of French stations was very good and I "threw" some French words sometimes ... hi-h! My impressions are very good, although I was not prepared at all and I hope that next year will run better. I hope so!
