Low bands were pretty quiet, but haven't worked 3 of available mults: ND, MB, SK.
Anyway thanks to KD4POJ and VE4YU for moving.
By the mid-contest mark I have had 3924 Q's and 311 multiplier, but next day rate became too low and lack of a second radio couldn't allow me to improve it.
This time I could attend 2 of 5 carnaval days.
Tuesday is the day of the "red devils", when people run round the whole day clad in devil costumes and masks.
Colour of the day: red.
The celebrations continue until Ash Wednesday, the Day of the She-Devils, when the Carnival King, Vaval, suffers his annual death and burning.
Colours of the day: black and white.
Thanks to Laurent FM5BH for hospitality.
Thanks to everyone for comments.
