No, I don't participate the Carnival weekend in the Netherlands. But my daughter will... only 13 years old, oh my... she will spend the weekend with a girlfriend from school. The XYL and me stay in a hotel in Brabant. But no radio this weekend, no Russian PSK contest and no ARRL CW DX contest. Most of last week QSO's are Russians and stations from Kazakhstan.
I do have the impression that the interest for Opera is waning. Yesterday I didn't receive any report with Opera on 20 and 30 meter in the late afternoon. But when I switched to WSPR with the same power and antenna I was spotted by several VK stations on 30 meter. (VKFRG, VK6ZRY and VK6ZT) I wish you all a very nice weekend.
