IARU is my favorite contest and the activity this year certainly did not
dissapoint! This is my personal best score in this contest!
The last two years I had station problems that prevented me from giving a full
effort. Got started this year an hour and a half late, and conditions seemed
just awful. As the contest progressed things just kept getting a little bit
better every hour; just amazing! The big key was discovering that you don't
absolutely need to operate split on 40m phone now. I had a slew of UK and
Belgian stations worked in the US phone band on 40m. Just great to hear them
Just to note, all antennas here are either dipoles or verticals; hopefully the
next big station improvement will be a triband yagi!
Thanks again to everyone for the great fun!
Special thanks to my wife Elena, and kids, Nicholas, Victoria, and Sophia, for
being so nice to let me have a mostly free 24 hours that I could play radio
See everyone next year!
