I have a few questions for you contesting experts regarding the ARRL
contest from this past weekend. I didn't think I was such a novice at
this since I have been doing it for a long time but...
Why did a Puerto Rico station not give me a power level? He kept
signing PR. I thought that counted as DX. Also, one station gave me a
00 for the power. I thought I knew cut numbers but not a zero zero.
Was that a lazy 100? Do I just use 00 in my log?
Then there are the stations sending at over 40 WPM or not giving there
call for a long time.
I operated about 11 hours through back pain one day and a cold.
Conditions were great on10 and 15 meters. Even late yesterday afternoon
on 20 I was able to work into Europe. 401 total Q's.
