ZS6EZ Single Op All Band Medium Power (more than 100 W, though)

      160       17       46     2.61      8      12
       80       78      204     2.62     21      47
       40      546     1612     2.95     33      79
       20      889     2634     2.96     34      93

       10      513     1493     2.91     26      91
     Totals   3221     9475     2.94    156     438  =>  5,628,150

Soapbox: 10 m was the worst I've ever heard it.  I hope this is
         the bottom of the cycle!  Terrible thunderstorm QRN marred
         the low bands.  Pretty pleased with the mult, but obviously
         didn't spend enough time actually making QSOs.

It's simple....He's using information available on HF and is the only one
performing all of the operating/logging functions.  His equipment utilizes
the information received off the HF "air" and processes it into another
usable fashion.   He's a Single OP!

W6QHS CQWW CW    18 hours    440Q    116Z     273C  =>  465,633  

Soap:  Thursday and Friday, offering some over-the-air computer and 
generator help to pals at HC8N (couldn't go this year, but there in spirit).  
Station here seems to be all together, so think I'll give it a part-time 
whirl.  Friday, crank-up tower relay sticks when it's down at 30', so I get 
miffed and figure it's not going to be my weekend.  Kids visiting all week 
and Sat. (we're goin' to be grandparents soon), Sat. also big garden honey-do 
day, so not on much, but I got excited when I noticed I had a shot at a 
unique feature of CQWW, 40 zones, on both 40 and 20!  

Band condx were fabulous, 20 interesting at night (SU2MT, HZ1AB, A71CW, etc) 
and 40 open all day here.  Went to bed with 37z/40 and 38z/20, needed 29 and 
37 for 20.  With 4S7, SU and JT's all over the place, at least 22, 34 and 23 
are in the bag, and 26 was unusually active, too.  Slept quite a bit Sunday 
morning to be sharp for afternoon 20m VK6 LP and AF openings.  Tried hard to 
get 7Q7A to QSY from 15 to 20, but didn't want to be a pain in a pileup (I 
guess W6 doesn't have the mult appeal of HC8).  In last hour, found PY0FF on 
40 for 38z/40 and VK9XH on 20 for 39z/20.

Not bad for 18 hours 95% S&P, and I have renewed admiration for those who 
get a sweep (is there a CQWW word for 40z?), even with packet help.  Never 
heard zones 12, 22 on 40, and didn't hear zone 37 on 20 when I was on.

These were indeed 3-sigma conditions and activity levels, so I'm sorry I 
wasn't in a position to give it a 48-hour go, but it was fun concentrating on 
a CQWW-unique aspect of the contest even if did I fall one or two short.

It's a great contest, even part time!  73 de Dave, W6QHS

Hi Uli,

Only you know what your motivation was when you published your post.  You
have explained it now and apparently I have misinterpreted what you were
trying to do. I apologize and accept your explanation.
