VA3RKMSO QRP ALLK2, 5w, verticals and wires. Thanks for working a weak signal!
VA3SBSO QRP ALLPropagation not the best and I struggled for qso's. Thanks for your patience. Next year I plan to sit in the chair a little longer to improve my score. Many honey do's and nice weather kept me from operating a little longer. Thanks for a fun contest. Keep up the great work.
VA6XDXSA HP 40MHOW CAN YOU TELL IT'S A CONTEST WEEKEND? K=5!
VE1ALSO LP 20MSIMPLY AWFUL CONDITIONS AND LACK OF STIMULATION TO GO ON -- BUT I DID!
VE2EZDSO LP ALLFT-950, 40m full wave loop + LDG Z11-pro K1EL Winkeyer USB, CMOS-4 keyer, Heil Proset HC5, N1MM Logger Propagation was fair but had a lot of fun anyway.
VE3GTCSO QRP 20MIt has been a long time since I did much HF work so I just jumped in and enjoyed it immensely. It was easy to work the Big Guns but I had to work pretty hard to dig out the weaker stations between the noise and to be heard with a QRP signal. I am hooked on contesting again.
VE3UTTSA HP ALLOne K3 to Optibeam fixed at 0 degrees (controller dead) for the whole contest plus 80m dipole.
VE3UZSO LP ALLThe geo-magnetic storm on Saturday made the polar path difficult
VE7BGPSO LP ALLLike last year I had a lot of fun participating in this Contest. Again my Oldie Yaesu FT-757GX with it's "you are Part of the Pile-up" QSK Keying. You do not need to use the latest and Greatest $10K rig to have a lot of fun contesting. I managed to operate all the bands allowed in this Contest. Yes Virginia 10 Ten opened for about 1/2 Dozen QSO's. The SSB portion I was one of CY7C Special Callsign our Club obtained for the Contest. It was the first time ever our Club got over a Million points in any Contest effort. CQWPX Contest is a lot of fun! 73 Gerry VE7BGP
VK2BJSO LP ALLConditions only fair and hard going with low power
VK2EKYChecklogTnx for opportunity of being a bit in the contest!
VK2PNSO LP ALLPoor propagation to EU made hard work on 40 m
VK3GDMSO LP ALLHad a little fun. Thanks
VK3IOSO LP ALLConditions much the same as for the SSB section, 40 mtr band being great and the rest not so great.
VK4KWSO LP 10MJust for fun and to test an antenna or two. Condx poor generally. Thanks for a great contest!
VK4TTSO LP ALLG'day to other Ops on Test Used "SD" programme by EI5DI worked very FB
VK7GNSO HP ALLIn and out of shack as I had time hope I gave a mult to a few people!
VU2LYXSO QRP 10MPOWER PROBLEMS AND RAIN PLAYED HAVOC.
VU2URSO QRP 15MENJOYED ANOTHER CONTEST WITH LOTS OF POWER CUTS AND HEAVY THUNDER SHOWERS.
VY2ZMSO HP ALLCondx were dreadful but probably better for me than elsewhere. Offtimes: 0629z-0830z, 1642z-1942z, 0624z-0838z, 1559z-1659z, 2015z-2400z - Total operating time 36 hours - 12 hours offtime.
W0ETTSO LP ALL20m was the place to be. Nice to have some sporadic Es on 10m for stateside QSOs in addition to the SA dx. Only limited openings to EU and JA from Colorado. Rig: IC765pro 3 with 100w to HF yagis and verticals 73 Ken W0ETT
W0RAASO LP ALLMostly a S&P for me, but when I began chasing dupes, I decided to get some Runs going, and that helped. As usual, it was fun, but band conditions were kind of strange at times. What else is new? Thanks to those who gave me a contact.
