Worked 25 IARU Member Society HQ Stations, but only one WRTC Team.
I wonder how those WRTC Team Members are roughing-it in their camp-style tents
and fine food! The WRTC-2010 On-Line Scores were posted at
http://www.wrtc2010.ru/?id=79 (Different from GetScores_Live).
W1AW/8 and NU1AW were contacted on four different bands. Long-Path bearing used
to contact ZL2JU, ZL6HQ, VK2GR, VK4WI. Maybe signal reflects off nearby
mountain. Also, beginning approximately 0830Z and lasting more than an hour,
multi-path was at work because local Arizona Stations (i.e., N7AT, K7SW, K7WP,
and even some selected stations in California – K7HD) had significant echo on
their 40-m signals. Some stations I did not bother to annoy with the echo for
only one contest point.
Low QRN on 40m and 20m bands, buzz-saw on 15m, egg-sizzle on 80m and 160m.
Antennas on short tower seem noisier that those on tall tower. QRN is typical
for low-humidity summer-time conditions here in SW USA. Some Operators ran QRQ
between 41 and 47 wpm (S50HQ & IR4T). Yes, those ops. really are that good; but
even without summer-time sizzle, these ears are not!
Bands did not seem that crowded to me. However, Claim Jumpers shortened my runs
and provided time-out for food. Worst offenders were Ops. at club stations. Why
should they care? (They are not using their own callsign!). Once I returned
with a sandwich 10 minutes later to discover that already the Claim Jumper
QSY-ed to Greener Pastures. (Nobody stays home anymore.)

Enjoyed the contest. TNX for all the Qs. 73, Tom K7FA
