Fun contest with an unbelievably simple exchange, hihi...........Good signals
from Europe, not so much so from SA.

As always, the KC0W contesting disclaimer:

*** I contest for the FUN of it from here in North Dakota & not to collect
awards, plaques or "wallpaper". I use my general logging program to
the total number of QSO's made & leave it at that. This is why I have no
information regarding my total number of mults or a final score. ***

The easiest band to work SA station from here is 10m but there was deep QSB as
usual so it took longer to complete QSO even exchange is simple and static.
Some participants did not indicate which contest he/she is in while calling CQ,
so I wait to hear which exchange was sent. Then I change logging program
setting, call him/her then he/she sent different type of exchange.....seems
this station send 001 to YU station, state/province to QSO party station,
continent to all other station, on the fly. Other station gave out all possible
exchange in one QSO. I would like to see some coordination between contest
organizers to harmonize exchange in same weekend.

Anyway, thanks for copying my weak signal!

QRM from YU DX contest being concurrent was a real problem. Heard AA3B giving
out continent and YU DX number with each QSO. New FTDX-5000D out-played my old

Hello guys.
Nice Contest.
CQMM is becoming to be one of the major Contest.
Thank you for the QSOs and if you didn't join this party, be ready to next

Mamiro, PY2DM, thanks again for the use of your fine station. Raw score above
record but I will lose a lot as stations probably mixed up the different
contests during this weekend. Thanks for all that gave me a call and answered
my S&P.

Final de semana complicado, muitos compromissos, soh no domingo deu para brincar
um pouco e para variar o mister murphy apareceu la na antena de 40 e 15 metros.
De qualquer maneira deu para brincar um pouco e dar nossa contribuicao.

Soapbox :
This is such a great contest and a great group!!! One of
the few big contests I feel comfortable calling cq...lots of op's are
patient. And it's nice YL's are worth extra point along with groups and
it adds interest to the contest. I'm a tiny station with a OCF Dipole at 35'
and 100 watts and I took this up late in life so my cw is a work in progress
it's great to be in a contest with such a nice group and be able
to call cq for short periods of time. I sent my exchange (5nn NAY NAY)
twice hoping everyone would catch the extra points...hope everyone logged it!!!
Thanks CWJF 73/88!!!!

Very casual, part-time effort while getting the new shack computer up and
running. Everything works FB under Win8, but only after two days and nights of
installing and configuring the build from scratch. Now set for another 10 years
of contesting :)

After living without a working serial port PCI card, I again have two real
serial ports for FSK (important for BARTG75), leaving just rig control on
USB-to-Serial cables. Worky worky. And fast as all get out (i7 3770K aboard...
overkill today means just about right in a year or so). The old machine
(Pentium D) was getting a bit too old to seamlessly run SO2R RTTY and all the
other work-stuff I need active during a contest weekend.

SP DX RTTY and Florida QSO Party next weekend. Will get on after dark, as
spring has arrived and the lawns, lawn tractor, and winter tires need

Thanks for the Qs. See you out there again next time.

Average condx but several good DXs to work. Nice contest.
NG7Z   SOAB HP   56,6372013-04-21 21:33:51
Thanks for the contacts during difficult propagation conditions. I was surprised
by the apparent lack of diversity in SA countries who participated. Mostly
Brazil and Argentina stations worked at this end. Perhaps it was better in
other parts of the US. I was pleased to work Walt LW3EX who was QRP on 3 bands.
On two occasions with the antenna pointed at SA, I heard faint signals calling
me. Once I could make out the prefix, it turned out they were EU stations so I
turned the antenna north and picked up a couple of mults. Despite the
challenges, it was another fun contest and I look forward to next year.

Band conditions seemed to be poor compared to last year when I made 33 Q's in
about the same time. I was certainly hoping to do better. Bert, K6CSL

What a busy weekend. Contests galore. Hadn't planned to operate in this one
but after returning from a 5-mile road race Sunday afternoon I had to do
something to unwind. Amazing how much good DX I was able to find. Sorry I
couldn't put in more time. Thanks to all.

Several enjoyable operating spells over the weekend.
Band cndx not great, short sporadic openings to different eu areas on both 10
& 15 both days. Almost nil NA on 10 both days.

20 mtrs was noisey with atmospheric disturbance so i spent little time there,
there were many times too when 10mtrs suffered solar noise and yet, at the same
time, 15 was quiet - figure that out.

15 was the money band. At all times propagation to SA was great, just wish
there were more stns active from there. NA was pretty much only east coast
first day but few in numbers, not so strong but N4BP and N2MM were there all
the time which makes me think most guys were busy in the Stateside qso parties.
Sunday there was a good couple of hours opening to all NA areas, again weak but
copiable and it was great to make it with qrp ops from mid west and west coast
- well done fellers.

It's great to have a contest with a different twist and the addition of bonus
points for QRP and YL plus organising group members makes it more tricky to get
all of the exchange in the qsb cndx which prevailed throughout the event,
especially so when you get impatient tailenders! I logged YL ops from all
continents, even YB! Congrats to N2MM for her great submitted score.

First time doing this and I enjoyed it, shame so many contests on at the same
time which must be to the detriment of all, but I will hope to give it a
serious bash next time around.

I didn't set up the logger scoring for the bonus /M, /Q, /Y so the final score
will look a bit different but I will let the contest logging robot sort that
out from my cabrillo.

TS570 + Acom 1010. 3Ele Yagi up 15mtrs. Logging with 'SD'

Enjoyed working many SA CW stations and DXCC mults. Claimed score mixed up in
N1MM Logger headlines but it was fun despite Sunday evening QRN.

Score manually computed... No WriteLog module for MM. Nice to see YL + QRP
stations getting higher points. MM has an easy exchange. Conditions didn't seem
as good as the days prior to the contest. Sometimes I felt it was death by
CQing...(with no answers!).

Biggest issue was there were TOO many contests happening this weekend. Had to
figure out what the different exchanges were in order for them to count for the
contest you are actually in! What a mess....come on people work this out will

Had to separate the "MM" in the CQ from the "MO" in my
call... could cause some confusion, hah! CQ MM T6MO T6MO MM... uh ended
it with "TEST MM"

QSX report 02z OA1F 20m...

Highlight of the weekend was working 3B8MM at 1430z 4/21 on 6m TEP...COOL!


All the best,
