Club: Society of Midwest Contesters


All CW using an IC-756PRO3.  After the first 156 QSOs, I decided to use the
AL-811H amplifier (500 - 600 Watts).  During most of the daylight hours on
Saturday, it seemed more like a domestic, NAQP contest.  Few EU signals heard,
and many of them were weak and difficult to work.  I decided that staying LP
would be mostly frustrating trying to work the DX stations.  I had considered
maybe even dropping out of the contest early, since I was not hearing much DX
for several hours. 

I did not hear any of the R3 / WRTC stations until later in the afternoon.  I
spent about 3 hours tuning and chasing the R3/WRTC stations on 20 CW and
managed to work all but 5 of the 50, plus the two R3/ stations.  Eventually the
band opened rather well to EU, and I enjoyed a nice run.  Then, I decided to
spend much more time in the radio action.  Subsequently, I decided to stay at
it longer and try to make 1000 QSOs.  This is the first time that I have broken
the 1000 Q level in the IARU contest.  It ended up being fun after all.
