Post Contest Report:
After a long absence from any serious Top Band activity I thoroughly enjoyed
playing in this contest.......
New Inrad filters for my 1000MPs arrived earlier in the week and sure made
operating a pleasure
during the contest ..... would recommend that anybody looking for extra quality
for low band
CW op'ing .... get a pair of 400 hz filters...... am not surprized ( but
needed reminding )as I
had used them before in a 930..
Conditions were about as good as one could expect and my new Antenna played
very well for me..
Had planned to get a receiving antenna on site before the contest but as always
I'm the best
procrastinator I know hi !....
Band opened very early here both days ... although sometimes conditions were
strictly one way
and almost all the stations I heard from Western Europe were stations I had
worked the previous evening.
So spent a load of time searching and spotting !
Managed a couple of 100 hours while cq'ing not bad for this band ... here are
stats (for me anyway) :
2 Point North American = 41 QSOs = 5.4%
5 Point North American = 367 QSOs = 48.4%
10 Point DX Contacts = 350 QSOs = 46.2%
Obviously European QSOs from here contributed significantly ...
Day 1 = 513 QSOs
Day 2 = 245 QSOs
Sections = 54
Countries = 66
N1MM sez I operated for 17.3 hours so I had 30.7 hours off .... obviously
there is no time allocated
for listening in this calculation ...... My log does show a long break on the
Best DX ZL6QH at 10:28z day one ....... Last time I worked ZL on this band
was 1985 ? during the same contest
think K1ZM ? was the operator ..... long time between Qs hi !
Thanks for the QSOs et
C'Y'ALL Next one
