Here is my score for IARU 2006, first of all I want to thanks Vlad-VE3JM
and Don VE3RM, to give me the chance to operate IARU from Don's super station
this year.

I wanted to operated this contest because of WRTC, as I was Argentina's
team lead in WRTC 2000 (S522R) and Finland (OJ1C), I know the feeling
of this event, and being in the contest, I feeling myself like being in 
WRTC itself.

It was my first real try to operate SO2R, for moments it was nice, but
most of the times it was a mess, because the station wasn't ready to
operate 2 radios at this time. My goal was try to duplicate my score
from last year, but unfortunately a huge electrical noise in low bands
(there are a continuous electrical noise of S9+30dB in the frequencies
between 1 to 5 MHz, it just started some days before IARU), keep me short
from my goal. That noise really hurts my score, because I never couldn't run in
80 neither in 160 and every QSO in these bands was a 'pain in the butt", because
copying the stations with 30 dB of attenuation in the front end and using the
DSP at maximum processing to try to understand the call really got me
frustrated and very tired. Every QSO in 80 and 160 meter took me around one
minute to completed and this is not the best way to get your maximum score, but
anyway I enjoyed the contest, working 44 WRTC's stations (several of them in 4
bands), working in 40 meter lot of the new VKs foundation licenses with 4
letters in the suffix, trying to move between bands some Central America's HQ
multipliers, one of them asking my in Spanish, "why are you asking me move to
another band, if I'm fine working in this one now". 

Tnx to Gary VE3XN for give me the zone 4 multiplier in 4 bands! NU1AW/8 was the
only one station worked in the 6 bands, only work VA3RAC in one band.

Congratulation to the Canadian team for winning WRTC! 

See you in next contest

73, Claudio VE3AP/LU7DW/VE2DWA
