1997 ARRL 160 CONTEST - N0HF -
160 CW QSO's: 303
Equipment/Antennas: FT990, Alpha 91B, preamp, inverted 'v' at ~50'
300' parallel beverages
Comments: I can usually count on the Carribean for DX mults. but
this time NADA. Very poor rx. to EU, DX to the West was
marginal at best.
Stateside propogation favored the East and NW here but
most CA stations were weaker here than usual.
Missed VT, MAR, NL, AK.
I was hearing East Coast Stations CQing at 2 hrs past
sunrise. Thought I'd get an early start Saturday afternoon
(~3pm local time) and get a run freq. established and
found almost no space to CQ! Gotta try this a bit earlier
Good turnout from CO several stations s9 +50 - W0UA (where
was he operating)? - W0TM - K0FRP - W0AH - K0FX - K0EU -
W0MU - KV0Q etc.
See you in the Stew Perry contest!
