As has been said before, there was not much activity here in CT, and I don't think condx were all that good either. At the start of the contest there was NOBODY on that I could hear, so I went to the

Mirage used to list that caution in their manual, but I see no mention now in the "new" manual. Either they fixed their design, or they don't bother with this very important detail for SSB use. Thank

This is precisely why I put up the antenna that I did for 2M contesting. It is a four stack of 3 element yagis. It analyzes to have 14.6 dBi of gain with a 60 degree horizontal beamwidth to the -3 dB

Dick, Right on! The VHF contesters are great bunch. IMHO I think mention of a wide signal should be done, but be tactful, maybe do it off air, and leave the door open that your own receiver could be

Jeepers, I never picked up on that rule. When things were slowing down on either VHF or HF in the late evenings, I've been settling in with a glass of nice wine to wind down with. No wonder I think I

Hi Les, I use the N1MM software and really like it- you can hook up 2 radios to it and show 2 different logging windows and it will satisfy your requirements 1 thru 7. It can use your computer's soun

I don't think there is any blanket objection to using technology or the internet during contesting. It's a question about the nature of the "assistance". E.g. for a single op: If I go to qrz.com to l

Well sure, but be aware that stations go to other grids, and that SCP can mislead you. If you blindly "correct" using those tools your score will suffer for the errors. As was well stated earlier, yo
