G0HVQSA LP ALLMy first time in WPX SSB, great fun. Didn&#039;t expect to get so many QSOs with a simple setup (100W/verical) and no suspots.
G0KDSSO LP ALLALL S&amp;P POWER 10W TO 100W ANT 80M WIRE FOR 15M THRO 80 AND 10M MONOBAND BEAM
G0MLYSO LP ALLMy first HF contest, so really quite exciting! Could only get on air at certain times though. I am looking forward to taking part in further contests Thanks to everyone who I worked for their patience!
G0MTNSO HP ALLThe sun finally came out so I slowed down...
G1FONSO LP ALLMy first venture with CQ-WPX-SSB, and it didn&#039;t take me long to realise that a 9 foot vertical antenna is not conducive to attaining a high score. In fact I finished early, having worked all I could. Otherwise it was great fun, will have another attempt with better antennas.
G2CSO LP ALLFun contest with a special callsign Good conditions on 20m 15m and 80m Sadly 40m was too crowdy and 10m didnt open at all
G3TXFSO HP ALLJoined the end of the contest for last four hours only.
G3WWSO LP 20MThought I&#039;d use a 100 mile car journey to give away a few points. Surprised what can be worked with 20w to a mobile whip.
G3YBYSA HP 15MVery casual entry just 5 hours operation but thought 15m would be interesting. Good openings to Caribbean and SA also AF but nothing to NA or JA
