Glad to have contributed at DR9A station in the MO section.
Our log was not clean enough to have hold a score over 500’000 points.
See comments below from the IARU guys:
Comment to the 2017 September contest results:
2017 September contest is a special one – after 33 years the “magic line” of 500k points was crossed again. The remarkable achievement of DR9A now places them to September contest “hall of fame”:
– OK1KHI/p (MO) won with 591193 points in 1981 which still remains the highest ever claimed score in the 61 years history of this contest
– OE5XXL (MO) was second with 553769 points same year
– F6HMQ/p (SO) scored 554770 points in 1984 – highest ever SO score of all times
– F6CJG/p won MO section with 547542 points in 1984
– DR9A (MO) claimed 511079 points in 2017
We all look forward to year 2018 where other teams will try to beat DR9A and hopefully more will score above 500k points 🙂

HPE CU and GL in the contest!
I was gladly part of DR9A Team this year from their usual location in JN48EQ aftre 4 yeras of absence on the 144 MHz band.
Murphy visited us a couple of times before the contest when all was going ok but we could recover.
Anyway we were into the contest and we had a great fun especially on the live score board at http://slovhf.net/en/claimed/
We did an impressive work at DR9A to catch up our gap in the last hours of the contest on Sunday. I am glad that we reached this 2nd place in the declared !
Of course at the end of the contest began to rain and it did not make things easy for the disassembly process.
Congratulations to all and thanks to the top teams for the adrenaline generated this weekend!!
