                      CQ 160 METER CONTEST -- 1995

      Call: N8ATR                    Country:  United States
      Mode: SSB                      Category: Multi Single


     Totals   1126    2606      58      17    =   195,450

Operator List: N8ATR, WB8K, KF8UN, WA8BIN, N8DMM

Equipment Description:   Yaesu FT-1000, Ameritron AL-1200.

                         Shunt-fed Tower (100' with 2 KT34XA's,
                         a 40-2CD, and an A4) with 4 elevated,
                         tuned 1/4 wave radials.

                         500' 2 wire reversible beverage NE/SW
                         500' 2 wire reversible beverage NW/SE

This was our second try at doing the 160 SSB contest M/S.  Although
we bettered last years score by almost 50K we are still losing ground. 
Some of the eastcoast scores are awesome.  Just one real gripe:  It's hard 
enough to hear Europe from here; having to contend with US stations 
calling CQ in the DX Window makes it even worse.  I know the rules say 
the Window is voluntary but it sure would be more fun if everyone cooperated.
Aside from that we all enjoyed ourselves.  It is always a thrill to call CQ 
and have a VK6 or KL7 answer. Many thanks to all who called us.

     This is not a new idea.  First it shortens the exchange.  Second, it 
     makes the station stand out.  
     I know when I tuned past an exchange of 5NN NN that it was WJ20.  No 
     waste of time there waiting around there for the op to ID - I knew 
     exactly who it was.
     If everyone else starts doing it, then you gotta start sending the old 
     5NN 100 to stand out ;-)

     P.S and I cannot beleive the poor operating practice by V44KAO who 
     didnt send his power unless you asked for it.

I also liked S59KW - The report is in the call!  :-)

     >I worked the V44 and received a power of "B" from him....After four 
     or five more QSOs I sent "PWR?" and heard him send "1000". 
     I worked him twice myself and had to ask the power each time.  I got 
     100, and this was after I had to ask for a repeat both times.  One 
     operator in our group logged him as 8 watts.
     So, does anyone know who the op was at V44KAO?

     Does anyone have a spare room at the Stouffers?  
     I'd rather have a private room rather than sharing.  I'll also take 
     another downtown hotel if nothing opens at the Stouffers.
     CU there,

Just got back from a long trip which included some fun from the Maldives 
and Sri Lanka.  In my usual style, I began packing approximately 2 hours 
before leaving and did not even know where I was going until 2 days 
before I left.  

8Q7SS (field day in the Maldives):

First they confiscated my luggage because I didn't have a license.  18
hours later I had 8Q7SS and was on the air.  The antennas consisted of
whatever I thought best at the time with 200 feet of RG59 and about 300
feet of stranded hookup wire to work with.  Some daytime operation with
dipoles but mostly operated at night using approximately 1/4 wave of wire
that sloped from just above the Indian Ocean to the nearest coconut tree. 

Band changes and high tide feedpoint adjustments were slow, but exciting
as (the last) one included a close encounter with a couple of baby (3+ ft
long) sharks quite visible in the full-moon lit, clear waters. 

The highlight was working 40 U.S. stations on 80 meter cw and giving some
guys their last zone for 5BWAZ.  Thanks to N4KG for getting me down there
at the right time. 

Operated 21 hours and made 1,626 contacts.  (Forced myself to make 92 on


160     23         10
 80    171         31
 40    612         56
 30     72         24
 20    537         61
 17     94         32
 15    117         24 

Stayed with 4S7EA and family and used my rig with his 2 element quad and
dipoles at 30 feet for 40 and 80 meters.  

Unfortunately my Icom 765 lost all power output at 1230Z on Sunday with 20
and 15 opening wide.  Was able to make 3 more contacts using an
intermittent TS930 and the keyboard for a keyer.  Included was my son,
KB5WWA, to give him a new country! 

Results for 13 hours of operation and a lot of S&P:

Band     QSOS    MULTS

80        3        3   (W3LPL, KM1H, W1MK)       
40       63       26 
20      131       36  
15       54       12

Total   251       77

Also worked about 650 DX Qsos during time of no propagation to U.S. 

Worked many on 2 bands, K1FWF, K1AR, N6BV, N2LT, 
K3SA, W3LPL, K3WW, W3BGN on 3 bands and KM1H on 4 bands!

A brief listen on 160 at sunrise netted an SWL report of solid 559 for

A lot of you guys (K3LR, etc.) had good signals on 80 but I
couldn't get through.  

N7ML - outstanding signal on 20 is worthy of mention. 

After my rig blew up I went to the doctor at 11:00 pm to see about my feet
which had become infected and severely swollen after a trip to the
(filthy) 4S7 beach. The result was 3 different types of pills, some lotion
and a TOTAL bill of 200 ruppies = $4.45. 

Although the conditions were good the second day and I probably could 
have run a lot of people on 20 and 15, it was probably good fortune 
that my rig blew up as the medical problem may have become serious.

It was a fun time, particularly from 8Q7 where there was no existing 
station, antennas or license and it had the feeling of a real DXpedition - 
something I had dreamed of doing at age 13.
