IARU HF Championship as OL6HQ

I was part of the 15M CW team in IARU HF Championship. The contest started at 1200 UTC and first 40 minutes was great but I had to leave the station because of horrible headaches. I had to spend the rest of Saturday in bed and returned to the radio at Sunday 0500am and left it after the end of the contest. The propagation was really bad, we made over 1400 QSO.  I gave 161 to all FOC members after the QSO. There are a few photos from the contest.
