Don’t know if you’re seriously asking, but I’ll answer. I’m not an expert
and most of my solutions, like this one, come from reading the blogs,
advice, and contest presentations of good operators out there. So… This
isn’t original, but the short answer is to think of yourself as a big
pistol. Tighten up your filters, find a small hole in the noise and just go
for it. You will both win and lose some frequency fights so be prepared to
move. If you have to, just find another hole and start over.
You’ve a much better station than I. An amp, two beams, a fairly high
rotatable dipole, a shunt fed tower on 80. You ought to be able to do it.
Look up W4IX’s score for the ARRL DX CW contest. He just runs 100 watts
like me when at home. He always manages to find a run freq.
