I wanted to get on for a little while to make sure something still worked in the
station after a big wind stome a week ago. Winds took down a pine tree that
supported my 40m ground plane, so no 40m available. It was good to hear lots
of activity in the middle of the summer.

Fortunately, I had no thunderstorms nearby as we have experienced most evenings
for the past week, so no need to disconnect antennas or get beat up by static
crashes.

Thanks for the Q's.

After a Saturday morning and early afternoon shift on 40M SSB W1AW/7 at N7RT, I
was planning on operating a short early evening stint on 15M CW W1AW/7 at K8IA.
A fierce storm scuttled that plan, as Bob had to shut down and didn't resume
operating until about 6 PM, and the band would gradually diminish thereafter. I
decided to try and work all the W1AW/7 Club stations 10-80M from home, and
missed 40M CW...worked some others in between in a casual 3 hour effort.

I had a good time at Hardy's, N7RT, and also with Gary, KE7DX, despite the poor
band condx during my shift. His antenna system is nothing short of amazing, and
I'm sure the later ops had a blast as 40M opened up Saturday evening.

Kudos to the officers that organized the AOCC W1AW/7 effort, the participating
stations, and the members that manned them. When the final result is tallied,
the Club effort will be a huge success. Proud to be an Outlaw!

Got on to make a quick S&P pass at about 0400Z after work. 20m was much better
than I expected.
Go Outlaws!

Conditions were very weird! But the new 280' loop that was installed at the
QTH, an almost finished 3 element beam (it's on the tower at the 20' level,
just can't crank it up to 40' yet!!), and new FT-2000, they all worked
wonders...I actually had some runs on 40M and 80M, and had two VKs calling me!!
While I was disappointed for the lack of any real DX on 10M, 40M and 80M, 15M
and 20M were pretty steady. And the XYL let me pretty much play for the
majority of the contest. 73 to all, and thanks for the fun!!
 
VK3TDX   SO Mixed HP   754,1712012-07-15 03:22:17
Surprising good band condx considering the solar flare.
Ten meters was disappointing but all other bands had good activity.
Great long path 20 meter openings for many hours.
Thanks to all who called.

Could not suffer the bad conditions AND a backsprain so the back won a lot of
off time. Because of such a tough time getting heard, I said the heck with it
and turned the power on the FT-5000MP full clockwise at 200 rather than the 100
- seemed to help a little as I got heard faster and could sustain some decent
runs.

Hope the back and bands recover soon... this sucks.

Contest is over :-) Checked last year scores and decided to do SSB this year
with Low Power. My antenna's are low except 80m and not rotatable.
My goal was 1000 QSO and 200 multiplier's. So 5% more :-)
First day was fun on 10m!
Became lazy and made 2 rest period's 4 hours. So 700.000 point's is level at my
QTH.
Hardest one was LY0HQ multiplier on 20m. Pranas answered my call at 12th!
attempt 10 minutes before contest finish :-)

Look for me as LY54SOP till 31th of July.

Thanks to Hans, NB2T for joining us and sharing his call sign and unique "AC"
multiplier with us.

The contest was FUN, and the CME didn't really ruin things for us until the
morning....when 20 didn't really open.

Dennis had a personal best run on 20 SSB!

Great contest, really needs a M/2 and M/M entry.

Hope to do this as an HQ station next year.

15m was great 2 last hours only. Rate by hour was more when 180 QSOs.
10m was closed first day and little beet open on Sunday afternoon.
Thank you to ALL for calling and QSO.

I really expected conditions to be much worse than they really were. With the
CME due to arrive just as the contest was starting, I had visions of blackouts
on the bands.

However, there was always someone to work, even if some were stateside guys.

I really missed the late night 20 meter openings to Europe and over the pole.
Those are the most fun things about contesting in the summer. Too bad they
got wiped-out by Sun.

Despite the very poor conditions caused by the big solar flare, there seemed to
be a lot of activity. The JAs seemed plentiful, but very hard to copy on the
noisy low bands, especially late in the contest. Very few Europeans were
worked, which was a big disappointment.

Almost 50% of my QSOs were logged in ITU Zones 8 or 45.

I'm glad I entered as CW only. Phone must have been awful this weekend.

The good news for me was that both K3s worked fine after some recent repairs.
I do like the new AGC improvements. I had no station troubles whatsoever.
Everything performed well.

Congrats to all the tought West Coast competitors who stuck it out this
weekend: K6XX, K6AW (AK6W@N6RO), W6NV, W6YI (K6AM), K6NA, NK7U (N6MJ), etc.

Took a fairly major lightning hit last weekend. Still rebuilding, but got the
antenna selection matrix rebuilt by mid day and got on and off testing the
switching/filter selection etc. Had to hand switch various combinations of
antennas, but the filters etc are working again. Only 1 rotor is turning,
so everything was at EU the full time I was on. Was looking forward to this
one and it sounded like the bands were real good.

Wanted to help the WRTC station evaluation project but condx from here to New
England were putrid. The only thing I can think of worse than operating this

Wow! I spent 9 days getting everything ready. I had to crank down tower, take
KT-36XA off mast. Had to replace rotor, coax, mast, cable and winch. I added a
5 foot section to top of tower. Built a 50' homemade 40 mtr rotatable dipole.
Then put it all back up. Also built a 10/15 meter 7 el. beam. On Thursday as I
cranked up tower the cable snap dued to my error, not installing cable right.
Panic attack!!!. Steve N2IC came over Friday and helped me get it all back. Two
weeks before contest, Steve emails me and tells me he is going to be in West
Palm Beach, taking care of his mom who is sick. He wants to operate with me as
a M/S. Wow, I have one of the best CW and Contestors in the country wanting to
operate with me? Anyway we had a blast. I did phone mostly and he did cw. I
never thought that this station could do so well. I just want everyone to know
that without Steve's help I would not have even been doing this. 73's Mark

Fun contest. This was the first multi-op operation from Battleship New
Hampshire and intended as a shakedown cruise for future efforts. Although the
band change rules are quite restrictive, it was a fair test of the station.

Conditions at start were superb. Started with three 200 hours on CW on 15
followed by a 200 phone hour, then conditions started to deteriorate slowly and
the underbrush grew thicker as the day went on. Some interesting openings at
times, although ten disappointed.

Believe the historical multi-op high was NN3W's 2010 mark of 2.76M so if this
score holds someone should have a new record.

K5GN(@W5KU)   SO Mixed HP   2,057,3122012-07-15 07:02:19
First time to try Mixed Mode since paper logs, desk microphones, and memory
keyers. Had trouble getting the audio i/f to behave, couldn't find enough
ferrite to keep RF out of it. Learned a lot. Probably made a few bad choices
on when to be on phone, but also some good ones, with a great clear frequency
on 20m in the afternoon just before the big solar wind surge. Never much DX
rate on phone for me this time, but 15m cw was very nice at times, and 10 was
tantalizingly spotty with skew and short path. Missed a bunch of mults that I
heard at the margins of propagation. Only a few successful moves.

The combination of poor solar wx and local storminess that has lasted a week
and shows no sign of moving out made hearing DX really tough unless it was an
LU or CE :)

Morning was good. Evening was bad, bad, bad. Late night was pretty well
awful. Even Oklahoma stations had auroral notes. Boulder K index trend was
not good: 2 3 5 4 4 5 6 7. Seven!

One 80m inv vee went south in the wind somehow, it was working while eating a
meal before the start but was NG after sunset. Otherwise no apparent
casualties from the three big boomers that went through during prime time in
the afternoon and evening. Missed a little time watching lightning bolts
nearby, too close for comfort. About three hours of rain static and crash
static most of the time from 8am on. Yuck. 10" of rain Thursday, 2" Friday,
5" more on Saturday, drought is OVER.

Still a great day fishing for mults and running the races!

Thank you guys, for the QSO.
This was my first Contest with a antenna to 80 Meters, and I could discover
that there is life in this Band. What a party happens on 80 Meters and I was
loosing.
Good propagation, in all Bands.
All frequencies were crowded.
Best 73 from PP1CZ - Leo.

WOW! Like a dream :)
Thanks to everyone for their fantastic job and for HARD work through the 24
hours even we had Aurora and bad Propagation...

it's roughly our score, missing some 160m QSOes.

We also had our Youngster LA7VRA Henrik which handled on 20m SSB :)

Only a few hours to play but lots of fun. Logged using WL10.82A Scoring looks
crazy. My zone registered as 39 but all USA are scored at 3 points. Work
required to sort out the scoring. A few quiet spells but from my perspective,
the forecast CME induced radio silence proved to be unduly pessemistic.
 
WØPAN   SO Mixed LP   43,6802012-07-15 07:13:06
Wow! A real struggle with band conditions. We had massive thunderstorms hit
the Mesa, AZ area with tremendous static crashes at 2200Z - had to take a break
from the noise. Conditions improved an hour later and had good openings on 15
meters up to 0300Z - when you can work E51TAI at 0250Z with 150 watts and a
vertical sitting on the ground - must of been good. Never got a good run of
JA;s on any band. 10 meters was in an out like a yoyo.

Fluttery conditions on 20 and 40 for a good part of the contest. 15 was real
good, and 10 meters treated us to a decent European opening. 160 and 80 were a
lot quieter than in years past.

100w. Nice surprise to have 14 QSOs on 80m band, and even better on 10m. I made
one pit-stop, and was so nice to find a lot of friends. I don't know exactly how
much W1 WRTC stations I did, but they were out there hi hi ...

First full ocntest in over six months due to extensive travel, and the rust
shows (on the operator as well as the station!). The primary logging computer
failed and the replacement parts did not arrive before the contest; the backup
computer was missing a key piece of configuration for the interface to the
Microham, so no keying or frequency logging in the logging program, and the
contest was done by hand with the paddle. The yagi needed some replacement
parts (done the day before the contest) and the wire in the wire antennas had
suffered due to water ingress so had to be replaced (the morning of the
contest). Started a bit late as a result, with the laptop for logging but no
docking station, all just a lesson in re-thinking the backup strategy and
getting ready well in advance - of course well known already! Decided to run
low power and it DOES make a difference in the pileups! - and very weak runs.

Still, good fun and nice to be back in the chair.

Had planned to work more in this contest but was interrupted too many times by
my 2 year old daughter and 31 week pregnant wife during the day Saturday. As
always nap time in the afternoon and after bed time around 7pm was the only
time I could get things going. This was a total S&P effort with my R-8
vertical and dipoles. I had hoped to have the Butternut 2 element beam up but
that will have to wait for later in the summer. Actually picked up a few new
countries on 15 and 20 meters. Band conditions were noisy but better than
anticipated. 15 meters was unbelievable as usual lately. Another one of those
times when I hear all the continents at the same time by tuning the dial. I
always marvel at the diverse propagation experienced on 15 meters! 40 meters
was good at night though I think I waited too late to jump on there. My
station is good on 15 and 40 and I wanted to hold off on 40 meters until I got
the most out of 20 and 15. However, I think I waited an hour late because by
0140 when I went on 40 it was a total zoo. Happy with my performance though it
was limited. With the baby due two months from today my scores will probably be
lower this coming contest season. Hopefully the beam will augment my lack of
time in the chair. Also, I hope my new daughter is a good sleeper! :-)
Thanks to everyone for all the QSOs. 73

Retuning from an overseas trip late Friday night, had no energy to drive to my
Vermont contest QTH.( Looking at the disturbed HF conditions forecast did
reinforce that thought.)

SOO decided to just play around from my home QTH on Long Island with just a
stealth wire antenna and a vertical. Found conditions on 15 quite good and
surprise - 10 was open! this had to fun - stuck around all day..Near midnight
still could here the pacific working the EU HQ stations on 10 meters.

There was a deep fade mid-afternoon, then 40 opened big time - noise levels
were the lowest here, resulting in some decent runs. It was definitely FUN.

Tnx for all who participated - especially the thousands of skilled CW Ops from
all over..

Saturday afternoon a T-storm rolled in. I disconnected the main coax as usual
and decided to take a nap. As I lay on a sofa relaxing, there was a bright
flash of light and a single loud snap out of the radio room. Uh Oh. Duck for
cover. Other than checking for fire and despite my "interest" to see what had
happened I didn't go in there for an hour til the storm passed by.

All antenna position indication was fried. The DXE CC-8 control box doesn't
seem to have any LED's any more. They were fired off the front panel, nothing
but jagged carcasses remain. The Green Heron that controls the rotary tower is
stuck on "no rotation", I hope its just a fried pot or blown MOV's. Its ants
are locked on Asia. The synchros on the LM354HD don't move, its stuck. Which
doesn't matter because its antenna switching is the expired CC-8. That 7-band
tower is out of commission.

The good is the 3L40 on another tower is stuck into EU but working. THe KT36XA
on the rotary tower stuck into Asia is OK. The 80/160 GP works in all
directions.

The radio computer computes. Initially all USB seemed dead. The brand new,
maiden voyage YCCC SO2R box is dead - it had been busy giving me a new lease on
SO2R. THe Edgeport USB to COM is done for. The EW Beverage has had it. The south
direction on the NS Beverage likewise, obviously toasted at least the load
resistor. These ants were connected to a K3 but the K3 is OK.

THe rigs and amps are thankfully unscathed. I found one USB port on the radio
PC motherboard still alive. This got freq info into N1MM from the main K3.
Voila! Only a few hours delay! Back in business like it was 1980! At least I
didn't have to get out paper and pencil. It was, however, slow going forward.
Much worse than my usual mediocre rate. And darnit, for the first time ever I
was having fun with SO2R.
 
N3QE   SO CW LP   282,8982012-07-15 08:42:08
Very very happy with this effort. Bands turned out a little different than I
thought, I'm very happy with a natural balance that ended up between 40/20/15
and at various points all were the major player. While my antenna is only a
wire, I had good runs on all of 15, 20 and 40 (40 better than the others). Just
a few southern EU on 10.

Would've put in maybe 4 or 5 more hours but I got called into work twice in the
same 24 hours as the contest. See front page of Washington Post.
 
N4PN   SO CW HP   771,1252012-07-15 08:44:20
Had a meeting in Atlanta (actually Sharpesburg, GA). Only had time
to operate the first hour 12-13 UTC...(had 122 on 15-CW)...
Got back home about 7 hours later, to find the bands that were
supposed to have been wiped out by a flare, but not too bad....
10m was still open to Europe but only hearing the big stations.
15m was Ok..nothing great...
But between 10, 15 and 20m, there was plenty of activity....
Only Asians here were C4N, C4Z, JJ1NYH and 8N3HQ - all on 15m
Longest call...EI80IRTS..I don't understand making it that much
harder in a contest, plus all the lost time sending a lot more
numbers/letters....whew!
Surprise: calling CQ on 15m thirty minutes after midnight last
night on a seeming dead band and having FO8WBB and VK6DXI call!!
Decided to go CW only....put in 15 hours total....

seemed to play better.

Could only spend 2 hours on the contest as I had house guests and they were
occupying the bedroom where my radio equipment resides. Only spent a few
minutes on CW. Propagation was mainly to the east but did pick up a few in
South America. 100W to a homebrewed fan dipole in the attic at about 25 feet.

the Station again in Time to give me the possibility to operate IARU-CC from
OE3K! Great condx on saturday,so I stayed to Long on 15m and missed the low
band opening to the East. That is one reason (the other reason is the
Operator), that I could Not really compete with E7DX, OM3BH etc., congrats to
them. Still enjoyed the Contest and Look forward to the Next One soon.

K7ZS   SO CW HP   240,0322012-07-15 09:11:06
Schedule conflicts prevented a planned M/S effort, sorry guys! I found the rate
good enough on CW to not mess with a Mixed entry, but probably would have had
more QSO's.

Nice to see EU open briefly on 15, and then again on 20m right at the grayline
for some needed EU mults, both band/zones and HQ stations.

In spite of the potential for disastrous conditions, they actually weren't too
bad. Sad about 10 meters though - just never happened.

Nice to hear a good number of Willamette Valley DX Club members on the air.

My annual chance to experience a contest with antennas more like the average ham
has to use - 20 meter GP and a Butternut HF6v vertical. It is a lot more fun
from home with good antennas but nice to be in the mountains of Colorado in
July instead of the Texas heat.

Solar storm certainly depressed conditions but not as much as I was expecting.
Nice surprise was working 3 Europeans on ten meters. Not so nice was working
only 2 on 40 and none on 80.

Experts tell us we have been at the top of the cycle for around 12 months now
yet in that time I have commented on strange cndx for about every contest I
have entered and this was no different, rather like a stage magicians show 'Now
you see it - Now you don't'. Disappointing but we must be happy with the good
parts and always live in expecation, that's what keeps us motivated.

After the first two hours I had less than 50 q's in the log, no-one could hear
me, turning to s&p I waited endlessly in line for my turn to get a contact but
it did get better. So it started with a whimper and ended in a bang with 115
q's in the last hour when 15mtrs woke up..

Thanks are due to all the guys who manned the HQ Stns, they did a great job,
some must have been very lonely up on 10mtrs and 15mtrs too at times. What a
great signal from the 'Outlaws' at W1AW/7. They were the only '7' that I heard
and I did not expect to get the ARRL counter in the log when I read it was to
be qrv from AZ but they pulled me through on two bands, great work by those ops
as my 100w to a tribander does not break any windows even on the east coast.

My headline score could be way out, my logger appeared to be doing some odd
things and may have been corrupted, not giving credit at times and crediting
non mlts at other times, mind you it could be this op who was beat as i was
seeing snowstorms when I looked out the window and it is getting on for 100 deg
F out there! I have reached the age where an 18 hour section in 24 hour contests
would be very welcome!

Very good propagation on ten and on saturday afternoon : A good surprise. Long
range QSO's (LU and PY) Good propagation also on 40 m at sur rise but quickly
decreasing, unfortunatly. Hard work on sunday to try to reach other zones than
28/29/30 (Eastern Europe and Asiatic Russia).
IC-706, 90w, G5RV full size at 9m high and 10m wire dipole home made at 6m
high.
Little conditions but a nice contest, as usual.

Rig: TS-440S at 50 to 100w depending on band/time.
Ant: trap verticals 12avq and 4BTV

Very poor condx over the north but otherwise bands were good locally and to the
South. Heard very few EU stations and could work only a couple on 15 and 20m. No
Eastern EU or Siberia areas heard.

Good conditions to VK, ZL on most bands. Thanks to VK2IM and VK6DXI for multi
band QSO’s.

ZL6HQ ops were doing great job from that part of the world.

I don’t know if I missed VK WIA station or RAC station from Canada but
somehow I did not hear any of them, would have been nice addition to HQ mult
count.

I did not put the 80m coil on 4BTV before the contest to make it work on 80 but
still made 3 QSO’s using 40m m configuration. Still could get to N5DX in zone
7 for the mult, sorry for my weak signal on that band, will do better next
time.

Enjoyable contest as always.

Thanks for the QSO’s.

Had planned for a full time effort but got called into work where I had to work
on a broadcast transmitter for several hours.Win-Test says I only operated for
14.6 hours so based on that the score isn't that bad. Spent a great deal of
time on 15 and 10 meters as they were open a great deal. Conditions could have
been worse based on the CME predictions. Did work SX0HQ on 10 SSB....and TM0HQ
on 10 CW but those were the only 2 EU stations heard here on 10 meters.
 
FP/KV1J   M/S HP   343,5902012-07-15 09:35:58
Very slow for the first 6.5 hours but picked up once I was spotted. 10 Meters
was very quiet. Only heard one station (from my zone) on 160 but he was calling
someone.

Was 'assisted', thus M/S just so I could try to know where a clear spot was to
run.

Ant - SteppIR Vert, Phased 20M verts, Off center dipole for 80/40.

My best IARU score by a whole lot and one of the few contests in which I stayed
in the chair for nearly 100% of the time and one of a few contests in which I
made over 1,000 QSOs in a 24-hour contest.

Conditions went down the tube at about 4:30 AM local this morning but prior to
that I found them pretty good for here: getting rid of the power line noise
around this station has done a world of good for me and put the fun back into
operating this station.

Congrats to Victor VA2WA: an awesome score of over 1M. Only better antennas
than wires and verticals would put me into that category because I worked
virtually everything I could hear.

Rig: K3 + P3 + non-rotatable non-gain antennas.

Went to bed at about midnight GMT and the bands were hopping. Got up in the
morning and found that the bands had been hit on the head with a mallet!

CW only, but Assisted. Hence according to the IARU Championship rules, my log
is therefore multi-op and multi-mode. Yes, I accept that it is "multi-op" but
not that it is "multi-mode"!

Only one QSO on 160m? Yes, GO2HQ with an 80m dipole and very high SWR!

Rig: FT-990 100W to Force 12 C3 @ 40', Alpha Delta DX-LB inverted vee wtih the
apex at 40'. ClearDSP Audio Filter.

Pretty consistant conditions, probably altered by the CME on Friday. With 100W
and simple antennas was able to run on all bands and some S&P. Not being
willing to enter as a MO instead of SO Assisted did hamper my multiplier
ability given the low signal level from many stations.

80/40 very noisy due to proximity of severe weather - and use of ESP on those
bands was very important!

Thank you to all that worked me. I missed many stations that were there but I
just couldn't pull you out. I had to miss several hours with the family dinner.
I still feel great when my 40 year old son and grand daughters want to come have

Other than the normal TV RFI the TS950SDX, Alpha 87A and SteppIR were great.
Also the MFJ voice Keyer never quit.

Usual excuses, but true - kids and grandkids visiting, etc. A significant
portion of my time was in non-peak hours due to family activites. But, had a
great time both on and off the radio.

Didn't see any other operators around or work any SSB, but I still had to
categorize this as a multiop single transmitter mixed mode category entry.
Sorry, but I think the entry categories in this contest just don't make sense.

That was awesome. It was tough to decide which band to be on at times because
there was good reason to be on several of them. It made SO2R fun.

It seemed like participation was up. The stations just kept coming in at a good
rate. Europe propagation was decent but North American dominated my log with 67
percent.

It was fun to have something to do on 10 meters. I found myself there quite a
bit throughout the daylight hours and a little past sunset. 40M was the beast
this time around.

Thanks for the contacts and I hope to see folks in the IOTA contest in two
weeks as W4O from Ocracoke, NC (NA067).

Can't seem to stop myself from DX'ing first 2/3 of contest and then realizing at
the end there are points to be made from W/K Q's. Several decent S&P rates kept
me from running at times until it seemed the band was full of dupes. Then
running generally doubled the S&P rate. Probably a 'Duh' remark for most
contesters. Bands could have been worse! Pretty much made my chair time plan,
but was planning a big finish from 1000-1200 but 40M was so noisy and signals so
distorted I couldn't face it. Still, my best score in this event.

AB1OD   M/S LP   12012-07-15 10:04:57
I really should have listened to my elmer who once advised, "don't bother with a
microphone; they're bad for you." My log is going in as a checklog because of a
stupid rookie mistake -- despite the 10 minute band-change rule being called
"the 10 minute band-change rule" in conversation, I failed to notice that in in
the rules it's a band/mode change rule.

I had the spotting window open, and planned to submit a M/S accordingly.
However, looking through my log, there were a couple of times I switched to
phone before the 10 minutes were up. If only I hadn't sinned, and gone over to
the dark side of sideband.

Oh well. I've said that I contest because it's fun to make contacts, to
witness propagation changes, and to further my efforts towards the Quixote
award. But perhaps that sense of "d'oh!" I feel is a hint that I might also
like the competitive aspect too.

I'm sending in this report just in case anyone's compiling band stats, or
archiving anecdotes of this year's running.

I generally like the format of the contest -- 24 hours,
everybody-works-everybody, and (despite my comments above) the choice of modes.
I'd like it more if there were a single-op assisted category...but their
contest, their rules. Next year I'll either compete blind, or play from the
beginning with the intent of submitting a checklog, because I really didn't
like the shackles of the 10-minute rule even when I thought it was just a
band-change constraint.

Conditions were mediocre, but better than I was afraid they were going to be
with the flares last week, and the forecast of the CME impact.

I was able to stay busy Saturday until bedtime. 15 was thankfully productive.
10 was a tease, offering a few non-Western-hemisphere contacts, and enough NA
and SA activity to justify investing spending at least 10 minutes at a stretch
there. 40 was crowded Saturday evening, and 80 was more productive than I
would have expected at this time of year.

Even topband was surprisingly decent, with DA0HQ, II2E, and TM0HQ all appearing
in my log. I heard W1AW/7 and the west coast, but sadly was unable to make any
progress on 160 WAS in that direction. Having my 160m contact with RI1ANF a
couple of weeks ago come through LOTW during the test was icing on the topband
cake.

While many would observe that my modest station is still woefully inadequate
for serious topband work, the new 160m antenna is definitely better than what I
had last year and I'm feeling optimistic about how it might play when the
seasons turn.

Despite their mediocrity, the bands were decent enough for me to work all
continents on 4 bands (15-80), and to pick up a couple of new ones on the low
bands. I heard Carrie E51TAI booming in here on 10, but sadly I couldn't get
through the pileup. I also would have loved to work 3V8BB on 75 phone; he had
a good signal at my location but-for the ragchew going on just below him.

I went QRT around 2am local, when things seemed to slow down, figuring that
that was the end of the test for me. However, the dog woke me up 2½ hours
later because of wildlife in the yard, and I decided to head back to the shack
and see if I could get a few more Q's in the log.

Background noise on both 40 and 80 were higher when I got back in the shack.
Nevertheless, I worked several zone 7 & 8 stations waiting to see if sunrise
would bring good DXing.

The answer to that question was "meh". I was able to get a few VK's and ZL's
in the log as the sky brightened, although a couple of those were arguably more
via telepathy than RF.

Morning greyline: proof that sleep deprivation enhances psychic abilities.

Spent a little more time waiting for 20 to open to Europe. Heard hints, but
never anything workable given my modest setup. Eventually, I decided that my
day would be better started by taking a nap...and that's what I did.

Elecraft K3, no amp

Propagation made this a more interesting contest than it already normally is.
At the start on Saturday Oceania was strong; worked the Philippines, Indonesia,
and others. Around noon there was zero DX. It came back gradually as the event
went on. Couldn’t find anything on 160 meter phone the entire contest. 10
meters opened up for a period on Saturday. Did find a flaw with one of my 80
meter wire antennas where squirrels had made a meal of the coax feed cable
rendering it inoperable (the SWR looked good and it would load but the received
and transmitted signals were in the toilet). Fortunately I had a backup so was
able to get on the band. Looking forward to next year!

laptop+k3+al80b+hexbeam@15m+40m vertical. Vertical went up Friday and will come
down Sunday. I got the radials up a little higher, ends now around 8'agl, I
*think* it played better. Had to take about 30 minutes off right at the start
to figure out a logging bug. Logging program logged many 1 point stations as 3
points. I believe my score to be 405,824 although logger says 501,840. I
decided to operate now, fix later. It was fun trying to race the CME arrival.
Luckily, it arrived a lot later than predicted. Took 2-3 hours off during the
day due to local lightning. Tstorms provided ufb static crashes for many
hours. At 2am local time I ran out of steam and headed home. It was
depressing not to have 20 open over the pole all night like usual. Reading
some of amazing scores posted, it really makes me want to start planning a more
permanent station with higher antennas!

Not much for rate, except a few quick bursts on phone... this tells the story,

The best 60 minute rate was 133/hour from 2218 to 2317
The best 30 minute rate was 148/hour from 2220 to 2249
The best 10 minute rate was 204/hour from 2217 to 2226

The best 1 minute rates were:
6 QSOs/minute 1 times.
5 QSOs/minute 4 times.
4 QSOs/minute 19 times.
3 QSOs/minute 65 times.
2 QSOs/minute 195 times.

This was going to be a great contest from out West, until 1800z (11 a.m.
Saturday local) when a massive CME arrived and killed the fun. It was all
downhill from there, getting progressively worse.

I intended to stay at the radio to the very end, but there just wasn't much to
work after 1000z so I skipped the final two hours with the A-index above 30 and
still soaring (it was 54 when I got up Sunday morning, so I probably didn't miss
anything).

Still, the first part of the contest produced enough on 15M to vault me well
beyond last year's score, which was my only real goal. Far more mults than ever
before, thanks to European HQ stations on 15M.

Biggest disappointment was 80M, which was very noisy and didn't open to Asia or
the Pacific as I had hoped. It sure was good last year. Also no Europe on 40M
from here, with the Aurora so strong (maxed out at Au=10). Talk about a brick
wall.

Mults weren't nearly as plentiful on 40M this year without Europe workable (but
thanks to the ZL and VK lads for the zones -- conditions were pretty good to the
South Pacific).

Didn't find much on 10M -- open to the southeast and South America, but no rate
and few mults worked.

Thanks to everyone for all the fun while it lasted.

Now on to NAQP RTTY next Saturday, with the cross-Canada Aurora Busters team
ready to go. We have three ops in BC (VE7BC, VA7KO, VA7ST), plus VE4EAR in MB
and VY2SS in PEI. Should be a hoot.

Still stumbling along with SO2R. Thanks to all for your patience.

After a late start, I had packed it in at 0400Z (500 Q's). My XYL woke me up
from a deep sleep at 0700Z to inform me the AC unit was continually running
outside but the inside blower fans were not. A few hours of head scratching
and checking things out proved worthless. As a last resort, I dug out and RTFM.
Replacing the AA batteries in the "smart" thermostat fixed things. I couldn't
get back to sleep, so down to the shack for a few more Qs.

Even with thunderstorms in the area, the low bands were fairly quiet. Heard
several loud zone 6 stations on 160, but couldn't raise them. Apparently the
bands were not as quiet out west.

6 bands with NU1AW/9 and N8OO.

Personal Best - other obligations wore me out before I could get to the shack
about 1900Z, but QRP never ceases to amaze me. Thanks to all the High Power

This was fun. Some minor problems popped-up so lost some time fixing things or
working around them -- now that I have added so much to my station, my
techno-lid qualities have forced me to learn more than I ever thought I would
know about troubleshooting and adaptation to get through a contest.

Amazing opening on 40 Sunday morning well after sunrise when Asian signals,
full of multi-path echo and auroral notes came up loud skewed out over the
south Pacific -- didn't see that coming especially in the middle of northern
summer.

Excellent activity. Thanks for all the QSOs. IARU is a great reason to sit in
front of air conditioning for 24 hours!

some heavy winds.

15 was great from here! For once 15 was open to Europe from the start here.
Unfortunately in the afternoon thunderstorms developed all around MS/AL that
made it very hard to copy the EU's on 20. The weather cleared out later at
night, but then came the K-index of 6... Very few Asia qso's here.

Thanks for all the qso's!

100W, 88ft Doublet only just at roof level. Pleased with a few nice DX QSOs on
Saturday. Bands dreadful on Sunday. Reckon the ERP on Top Band with my small
doublet was around a tenth of nothing much....

Fun was had which is the main thing. I'll be leaving the first place slot open
for someone else :-)

Worked 3 or 4 Europeans on 160 (by calling CQ), also worked 20 Europeans on 10.
160 was almost noise free and was so nice to operate, looks like I spent too
much time working a lot of 1 pointers (also applies to 80)in hopes of HQ
stations might call in but only a few did so. Looks like my mult totals were
not very good even though they were a total of 20 better then last time
(2010).

Worked 1200 US, 100 VE's, 800 Europeans, 45 Oceanians but only 47 Asian's (35
JA's). Thanks for the activity from ZL (80 through 10) and VK (40 through
10).

This contest almost always falls on a local hamfest day and this year also fell
on a tennis tournament weekend but with the very hot wx (90 and 100's F) I chose
to stay inside.

Thanks for all the activity in spite of not so good conditions and thanks to
the HQ's stations for all the efforts.

Well, this one was better than expected, due to the ominous propagtion
forecasts.

Rig: FT-1000MP + AL800H (used only on 15M and 10M)

Antennas:
10M- 3ele monoband yagi at 75 ft height
15M, 20M -Force12 VR-3 Vertical multiband
40M, 80M - Alpha Delta Sloper DX-A
Logger: N1MM
-------------------------
Highlights:

15:15z- Late and slow start yielded few Q's (local Saturday 10:15AM), mostly
S&P on 15M. 10M was weakly open to SA and nothing heard from EU. Stateside only
managed to hear one K5 in backscatter.

16:41Z -10M nothing heard

17:30z - 10M Band started to open nicely to SA, although S&P.Although, the rate
suffered when attempting to run.

21:02z - Short CW run on 15M

21:10z - Late and sparse band opening on 10M, bagged CR6K and a few EU and AFs

21:49z - Nice run on 10M CW, mostly stateside

22:44z - Managed a short, but intense run on 10M, that needed to stop abruptlt
due to nearby
thunderstorms that drove a very hig static noise 59++ (I could clearly
hear the
static build-up on my tower guy lines). So, I decided better to be safe than
sorry,
and shutoff everything at 22:57z

00:53z - Returned to the shack and found the 10M band somehow, swicthed to 15M
and stay there until the
rate dropped and moved to 20M CW at 0217z.

02:26z- Another thunderstorm with heavy lightining and rain,shutoff everyting
.

03:58z - The storm disipated and continued on 20M where I had another small
run.

05:00z - Started to work 40M and 80M, that despite the seasonal atmosferic and
permanent urban noise, had more Q's than expected.

07:23z - I was really tired and had surpassed my personal goal of 400 Q's,
so decided to wrap everything up.

Overall, great contest and lots of fun

Thank you for the QSO's !

Not bad, overall. The first half was a bit slow as I could not get a run going
and so went with S&P. Later on I was able to run for several hours on 20 and
then an hour on 40, with best sustained (1 hour) rate of 77 Q's. This is about
as good as it gets for me, so I went away happy. Saw the A and K indices
climbing as the CME hit us, but it didn't seem to hurt my QSO rates and I even
continued to make contacts into Russia and Ukraine.

73 and thanks for the Q's

Inverted L for 80 & 40, vertical loop for 20 to 10. The CME that was forecast to
hit just before the contest started didn't seem to pack much of a punch. Had a
lot of fun.

Sadly, I had to throw in the towel at 0130z. I had a migraine coming and going,
and I was falling asleep at the rig. My 2 hour snooze didn't work so I gave up.
I'm so disappointed, as the run on Saturday afternoon was fantastic. I think I
hit one of my fastest all time hourly rates, and it was fun. I was up on every
hour compared to last year bar the last two, so I'm doubly disappointed.
I was out late on Friday evening - lesson learnt!

I couldn't decide ahead of the contest whether or not to go all-out.
The competing activities were parental duty and completing the design
of a circuit board for an Ethernet-based remote antenna switch. In
the mail the day before the contest was a certificate for the 2011
contest from which I inferred that I had somehow "won" Ohio Single-Op
CW only. I didn't look at the certificate very well because I didn't
have my glasses on at the time.

Since I had to defend my "title", I decided to at least start the
contest seriously. A couple of hours in, my parental duties were
discharged, and I could finish the entire contest and still have time
to finish the circuit board. So, go all-out.

My endurance weakness is staying awake. Frequent short breaks during
the daytime can keep my butt in the chair about 90% of the time. At
night, however, at some point sleepiness overwhelms will power,
especially if the QSO rate is low. This year, I made it until about
1000Z before the strange thoughts (this year: surface area) and other
weirdness became sufficiently strong.

I only heard one European station on 10 meters: TM0HQ. 15 meters
carried the load most of the daytime, and then 40 and 20 began to
shine at night (so to speak). Despite the fact that I could hear
static on 20 meters from nearby small thunderstorms, the static on the
low bands was very reasonable. In fact, the static seemed much lower
on 160 as compared to 80. Also, conditions on 160 seemed pretty good.
I worked several Eu HQ stations at their sunrise with signal levels
comparable to NA stations, especially since I was using the Beverages,
as the windstorm a couple of weeks ago knocked down several of the
phased array verticals.

My raw score would place me at the bottom of last year's top-ten W/VE
single-op CW high power pink radio with purple antenna category,
assuming conditions this year are comparable. In other words, who
knows?

Six band stations: TM0HQ and NU1AW/9. I had several 5-band QSOs where
the missing 6th band is either 20 meters or 10 meters. I must be
timing band changes wrong.

Equipment: K3, ETO 91B (thanks, Jeff!), 10-20: X7 up 60 feet, 40:
quarter wave vertical on the ground with 32 radials, 80-160: "tee"
with "cage" with 80 radials, ancient version of Writelog.

PS: I re-read the certificate: its for "250+ QSO" of participation.
It sure had me motivated for a while!

I achieved 1k QSO and 1M points in the very last minute with PS2T of Oms fame!
Reasonable condx after a big Sun storm. Not much static either. Took 1 hour
break for TV news and 4,5 hours sleep. It was fun again after pioneering
YU0SRJ efforts in 1960's initial Radiosport contest. I need 2 more ex-YU HQ
mults operations in 9A and Z3. FT1K & TH6DXX + 402BA with new homemade 10-40 m
GP and TS-480 dormant. CW robot didn't get a chance to run this time :-)

This results are a bit worse that the last time that I do the IARU HF alone, in
2008, from my station. I was tired because the friday I drive for 900km and the
saturday morning I need to put the 20m 4 el. monoband at work. In the station
all work fine, except the 80m inverted V, as usual. I don't understand how I
can make the QSO with the chilean HQ on 80m this morning with only 300w and 1:4
SWR!

The 20m was the money band for me. I find it open all the time, and I can copy
signals from NA till near the sunrise here. I prefer stay on 20m that the busy
40m band. Some opening on 10m that come better after the sunset, but no many
people on the band. 15m sounds better the saturday evening that the sunday
morning.

I hope that EFxHQ do well: this year was a great team!

Beat 2011 score, QSOs, and HQ stations. Tied number of zones. Returned from
Bagram about four hours before the start. Had some work items to attend to so
didn't get a pre-contest nap which hurt 40m later on. First 2.5 hours were
rough but conditions improved around sunset. With A=17 and K=5 the solar cycle
isn't helping me here, hah! Initial goal was 800 Qs... Was really looking
forward to this contest...too bad mother nature and work ran interference on
it. 40m would have been a money band but with travel, work, etc I ran out of
energy at night.

Heard but not worked (40m): N4AF 1246z, ZZ7HQ 1249z

Unique calls worked: 338
Unique zones: 18 (mostly 28+29)
Best hourly rate: 112/hr
EU 86%, Asia 13%

I have around 48,700 QSOs on this Yaesu FT-857D between C6, YS, YN, and T6...!

Funny thing is I bought it used back in late 2005...cool!

FT-857D and 40-10m OCF dipole around 30ft/10m up.

Hopefully all these sunspots will juice 6m for the CQ VHF ?!

Best of health to all,

Despite the solar disturbance, 20 and 15m opened (briefly) to Europe from Oregon
- vastly helping my multiplier total. (I also put up a 160m antenna this year,
which also gave me a few more multipliers.)

10m, however, never opened to Asia. Nor to Europe. And the 40m/80m runs of
Asians we usually expect here in the Northwest never materialized.

Overall, my QSO count was down from last year, but the increase in multipliers
led to a net increase in score.

Kudos to the Arizona Outlaws gang - W1AW/7 seemed to be everywhere! (The only
other station I worked on 6 bands was WH7M.)

Tnx to all,

All the thunderstorms made for lots of static on 15 and 20 during the day but
they faded away at night. 80 was remarkably quiet and some of the EU AND VK/ZL
signals were very strong. I suffered continuing computer troubles as I learned
the meaning of <COM PORT IN USE>. Who would guess I had 112 COM ports that
were not connected to anything? I think NN1N called it Techno Lid Syndrome...

would catch fire, but it didn't happen. All CW except for one mult on 15M SSB.

Operated M/S so I could watch the cluster for the 13 WRTC-2014 stations.
Worked 9 of the 13: K1GQ, K1RQ, K1ZD, N9NB, W1HH, W1MJ, W1SJ, W1UJ, WB1Z. Hope
they learned a lot from their station test.

Overall fun contest. Starting to enjoy it more. No technical issues. The K3,

Persistent thunderstorms overhead kept activity to a minimum. Too bad, as
conditions were not nearly as bad as predicted. I probably could have operated
even more time, but after lightning wiped out my station in June 2011, I am
very gun-shy about operating when storms are overhead. Oh well, maybe next
year. Still some great rates and a lot of fun when the lightning finally
stopped.

This was a very fun contest. Although this station is a little 22 caliber
pistol compared to the BIG GUNs, it is amazing what can be done with pure
determination, wire and a little attitude. :-) No aluminum on any band.

Thank you...ZL2OK(Dave), ZL1AIX (Warren) and VK4QH (Ken) for calling me on 80m.
160m was in good shape...better than 80m from a QRN standpoint. It was open to
the East Coast well before their sunrise. No activity!

15m was strong here!

Thanks for all the contacts!

This was strictly a S&P effort for me. Band condx were pretty good, considering
all the info we heard prior to the contest that they would be lousy. Go figure.
I wish I had checked 10 meters earlier, but didn't. So hindsight is still
20-20. Only put in 6 hous, but it was fun.

Had a great time. 15 Mtrs was the best band, lots of mults and not as packed as
20 mtrs. Very pleased to work stations from 80 mtrs up to 10 mtrs, it was nice
to have such good conditions. Had to shut down early due to a thunderstorm,
which was good because I hear that the bands shut down due to the CME arriving,
plus the couple of hours of sleep were appreciated also Hi Hi.
My highlight of the contest was working two China stations, I have been trying
to work China for the last year and could never do it, but I did it this time

Really appreciate all those who pulled me out with the CME condx. Rough road
with LP at times...glad things improved! Great hearing 20m open so late.
Overall, tough going, but a bunch of fun and great to hear so many great
friends. Really enjoy this contest. We were fortunate at this QTH to have
decent WX this year...a bit of wind and rain (our Arizona monsoon season)but
never had to pull the tower down, as I did last year and lost 8 hrs of op time.
Our Arizona Outlaws W1AW/7 effort was hampered with bad WX in certain areas of
the state, even here in the Phoenix area, but the Outlaws pulled off a great
effort. Just lucked out this year at this QTH! Again, thanks for the Q's, and

Conditions were quite interesting. 15m was the money band. It was run run run
for hours. Second radio was every where else. Big decision was catching EU on
their grey line on 40 on down when 15m was still open to Asia. 20m was not even
close to 15m at anytime. Signals were not as strong as 15m. 40m was just a bit
noisy but quickly caught EU zones before jumping to 80m quickly before EU went
back up to the high bands. 80m was fairly quiet all night. We had storms track
through the area just as the contest was starting so they were still in our EU
path.

The aurora started at about 0800Z and really became intense within an hour.
Signals were very distorted and with echo. I heard but never worked B4HQ on 40m
but on a south path...direct path was gone. JAs called but I could not copy them
at all on 40m...until about 1130Z when the AU backed off a bit. Rate dropped and
I took a nap. Woke up to 40m activity but still AU.

I had a lot of fun and the cw ops were terrific as usual. Kudos to all of the
HQ stations that did a super job. It was nice to find and work NU1AW and W1AW
on so many bands.

Returned to Texas from Colorado the weekend before the contest. Weather
forecast was calling for thunderstorms for at least the next 10 days. In
discussion with the other ops it was pretty much going to be a decision made
late in the week. Also had to consider that upon my return to Texas I got
sick, was not getting hardly any quality sleep, was well below what I would
call my best and in reality did not care if we did it or not. KU5B
and I went out for dinner Friday and discussed our options in the event storms
came to visit. At 730pm we made the decision to go ahead and operate so KJ5T
was quickly contacted to let him know this was a "go". However, we made it
clear that we were not going to give this thing a 100% effort....and we
followed that plan.
We only connected the high band antennas and had to wait to do that in the hour
before the start of the contest.
The low band antennas would be connected late in the evening and we would
disconnect the 10 and 15 antennas in the process since we were not going to go
back to those two bands.
It all worked out as planned and the storms did not come close enough to cause
us shut down.
There was a little adventure during the 80 and 160 antenna setup process. At
the base of the 20m tower is a housing which is where the 160m antenna feedline
ties in to the coax that leads back to the shack. A few feet over
is another housing which is centrally located to all the 80m antennas. KJ5T
went out with me to connect these antennas but as I set the 80m phasing relay
box on top of the 20m housing both of us saw something move. SNAKE!
Yeah, a 6 foot snake was sitting on top of the housing and there I was standing
right in front of it with my hand less than 4 inches from it at one point.
Well, we gotta get this thing out of here. In the process, the snake
decided to crawl into the 20m tower and eventually made his way into the 80m
housing. Now what? It took 20 or so minutes to finally get the snake to crawl
out of the housing and from there he headed north allowing me to
finish up the connections. Oh, but wait......one of the points I have to
connect on the 160 vertical where the matching connection are was home to a
black widow spider. That elusive rascal did not survive. Advice for self;
when it is snake and insect season I need to not only watch the ground but also
watch right in front of me and not be so quick to just put my hands somewhere
without checking it out first.
As the evening progressed it was discovered that the CW interface for the 80m
station was acting up. After some research it was found that the transistor
was bad and I did not have a supply of transistors at the station. I ended up
robbing the right transistor from another device to resolve that problem.
Glad the high bands cooperated because I think we all dread the low bands,
especially 80 and 160 in the summer.
Our lower band totals were down as a result but our raw overall score was a
little higher than last years score which was our highest IARU score ever.
Perhaps it could have been higher with more effort but the main thing is
that everything still works. I was unable to work some stations on 10 and
found that I really needed more than 500 watts on that band for some of the
scatter contacts. For this contest a low power amp was all I had available.
We could not help but laugh as we watched KJ5T running 20m SSB Satuday night,
after having a 16oz Red Bull, stroking the keyboard with hand movements that
looked like Liberace playing the piano.
This sure did not seem like 24 hours but perhaps that is because we did not go
at it as hard as we normally would. Still tired nonetheless.
It also allowed me a chance to make sure everything was working since next
Saturday is NAQP RTTY and we are, for the first time, going to enter in the
multi-two category. Prior to IARU the station had not been used since
WPX SSB in March.

With the certainty of Earth-bound CME particles scheduled to impact the upper
atmosphere during the event at ETA plus/minus 7 hours, the prospect was either
for reasonable high band propagation for a while or low band-dominated
activity. It was indeed a wonderful surprise to check 15m routinely on
Saturday AM and find it loaded with signals! It then became a matter of how
long it would last--roughly 19-2000Z, just after I started grazing on 20m.
Unfortunately, 10m was empty both times I checked, but the fodder on 15 and 20
made up for it, in terms of action.

I did better than last year's previous best--a result of a complete revamping
of the antenna farm since then. Other favorable contributors were a KPA500
(easier on the solar system than the two 3-500's--and easier on shack
temperature comfort too), and a P3, which shows both signals to work (even the
extremely weak ones, of the waterfall is adjusted properly) and frequency
"holes" for potential Run freqs. Why did I wait so long for it?

It's always a goal to improve previous scores and performance, and this was met
despite space and terrestrial weather considerations. July is typically New
Mexico's "monsoon" season, but this year, black clouds and lightning threats
have been absent of moisture, and the trees continue to perish. But unlike my
other Arizona Outlaws mates, I lost no op time due to weather. My other goal
was to work W1AW/7 on all band-modes. W1AW/7, the ARRL Hq callsign, was
operated by eleven teams of keen AOCC contesters at as many stations
distributed over Arizona (plus secondary station ops who were ready to jump in,
their local weather permitting, if a primary station were knocked out by storms.
Ten was dead for me, but I worked all of the remaining CW stations and three of
the five band SSB stations, missing 15 and 20. I'm normally a CW-only op, but I
worked enough SSB for a "college try." Thanks for adding something special to
the IARU, Mates!

If the only way to make leaps in annual contest performance is to replant the
antenna farm, then I'm in big trouble with Erin! Let's see where Cycle 24 is
next July...

With the CME particles on their way, each QSO was a real treat, and I enjoyed
some excellent runs to boot. The DX was generally good (for me), but this

I had a lot of fun running only CW. I've used a TS-2K + SB220 amp to an old

meter were good allowing the band to be open almost 24hs. 73 de Eger PY2EX

I wonder why I keep operating mixed mode-should probably just do CW only and be
done with it.

Was able to work EU stations on all bands, so conditions couldn't have been
that bad. Nice to see 15 open so late to EU. I have no real antenna for 15
anyway, but the band seemed good. SO2R operation this weekend was a pleasure
with the good conditions.

The aurora pretty much wiped out the normal evening opening on 20 meters over
the pole to UA9. Even some USA stations who were further west and north had
auroral flutter on them.

I initially thought that the solar flare would kill the contest, so I planned a
laid back effort around some other things I had going on this weekend. Was
pleasantly surprised when the bands just kept on playing, even better than they
had been in the weeks leading up to the contest. Had an antenna problem on 20m,
but they didn't hurt things too badly. Glad the 40 meter beam was working as
that was by far my money band from here. 80 and 160 were very quiet for
summertime.

All but three Q's were S & P. Had hoped to stay at the controls for 24 hours but
allergies wore me down. Thanks everyone for pulling out my signal from QRN and
QRM. The temporary Moxon on 15 meters was the workhorse again. Verticals on the
other bands. K3 and P3 along with an iMac running RUMped.

Up here in the Aurora Belt, when the local K-index hits 8 and VY2ZM on 20m is a
silent whisper that doesn't lift the S-meter, you know you're screwed.
Considering the circumstances, we are satisfied with the result.

While travelling to the station on Friday, after Thursday's Contest University
Finland, we found out about the X-flare. Further information showed that the
CME impact would take place about 2 hours into the contest. Thus we decided to
start full throttle on 10m and 15m and stay there for as long as they show
life, and to then descend and take whatever we can get from the lower bands.

This worked well as the first hours were quite productive and enjoyable, and we
passed 1000 QSOs just after 1800z. That was when the CME finally hit, having
given us 4 hours more "good" time than we had budgeted. From then on it was an
EU QSO Party for us (Pts/Q = 3.06 instead of the planned 3.35), coupled with
watching the screaming-red auroral oval on the computer screen while we heard
its effect on the bands. Sunday was clearly worse propagation-wise (K up to
8).

Rates dropped, but we were able to keep things going by changing bands and
modes often. Interestingly, the rate always tended to go up as we began
discussing a change! As a consequence of the marginal conditions we fell short
from our target with regards to QSOs and ITU zone mults, but we were happy to
clearly exceed the HQ mult target.

Thanks to all for the QSOs, and many thanks to the Brändö Island Group and
the Radio Arcala team for this opportunity!

Storm conditions flattened polar paths into Europe on the high bands. Managed a
few EU Qs in the log however rate was not significant. Focused on 15m through
the day until 2300 UTC when the 20m pipeline opened to the East Coast.
Additionally, at roughly 2200 UTC 10m opened into Asia/South America/East Coast
with the 5 element monobander pointed at 315 degrees.

Pointed 4 element 40m monobander at 315 degrees plus or minus at 1200 UTC
logging all important 5 point Qs before moving to the high bands. Also, 80m was
noisey late in the evening typical for summer months and was a lot of listening
between static crashes.

Followed directions off of CQ Contest Reflector and made weight adjustments at
the keyer resulting in a tremendous difference. It didn't feel like skidding
tires instead solid traction at the paddles boosted my confidence. Also,
significantly muted side tone into the cans, wow, it reduced listening fatigue
after 10 plus hours in the chair.

Top Five Zones --
08 = 338 Qs
45 = 170 Qs
07 = 160 Qs
06 = 129 Qs
04 = 27 Qs

Top Three Best Hours --
1500 = 75
0100 = 74
0400 = 68

Want to thank all the JA-operators, an ever increasing Q count out of China,
the PYs and LUs who make a difference on 10m CW, all the HQ stations, and a big
Zone 8 right on. I enjoyed a weekend worth of ham radio fun.

IARU Contest, WRTC style.
2 ops, 2 radios (100w max output), 1 tribander @40ft, 1 homebrew triplexer, 40M
dipole @38ft, 80M dipole @38ft. Everything was erected on Friday, taken down on
Sunday. It was a Field Day effort, with less of an overall station than many
Field Day Sites.

The above breakdown is using WRTC 2014 RULES; where it says "Zones" it is
really "DXCC Countries" for us. The QSO pts for working different zones is
also different from IARU rules; same zone (8), HQ stations, and IARU Officials
are all worth 2 pts, different zones/same continent worth 3 pts, and different
zone/different continent worth 5 pts.

Being used to high power, I have never had so many stations continually CQ in
my face as I had this weekend. Many I eventually got through to, but not all.
20M stayed open until 0600Z, then faded away. 4O3A and E7DX could be heard
calling CQ for hours Sunday Z time, but I couldn't even get a ? from them.
Between the 100w and their beams being turned the wrong way, they couldn't hear
me.

No polar opening. Worked 1 JA station on 15M, and that was Saturday morning
and was a HQ station. We listened, but never heard. Did hear weak JAs calling
Europeans Sunday GMT, but they peaked at 240deg and were never strong enough to
actually copy a call sign.

KM and I decided to breakdown the bands as such: I did 10, 20, and 80M, and
Greg did 40M. We were able to hear European stations on 10M as late as our
sunset Saturday night, but we had already worked them. One nice thing about
the HQ stations- they act as beacons on the different bands. They will be
there, even if no one else is there. They also generally use high power and
good antenna systems, which creates more Qs.

Thanks to everyone for the Qs, to the WRTC organizing committee for putting
this all together, and to Greg W1KM for keeping me going while he was way ahead
on 15M Qs while I was duking it out on 20M at the start.

This was going to be THE year for terrific conditions. Sunspots were up and due
to hit one of their 28 day peaks a day before the contest. But who unleashed
the sun storm? I watched the A and K index all during the contest and could
hear the huge whoosh go out of the bands (20 particularly) about the time both
started to rise (between 06 and 07z here).

Had high expectations after the first 12 hours reaching 1,000 Qs that I would
finally be knocking on the door of the magical 2,000. But the solar storm
quashed that thought quickly with 6 hours to go.

Nonetheless, great fun and very enjoyable. Nice to work so many very familiar
calls and have multiple Qs with a large percentage of the gang. As I get older,
it's increasingly more difficult to stay awake after 18 to 20 hours. But the
effort was well worth it as this year was a personal best for me.

Next up is the NAQP-just 10 hours. Amazing how one's appreciation for the
shorter contests grows with age. 73 de Art.

Started a little late, ended a little early, so this wasn’t a full 24 hour
effort. 10M and 15M was a disappointment, as I chased the bands while finding
the conditions not good at all to Europe, so I may have missed some openings.
20M was most productive. Late in the evening and early in the morning were good
times for me to discover 40-80, and made my first contest contact on 160m. One
long path contact to South Africa was a surprising when I was given a true 59+,
on LP! Strange… I wonder if that solar flare played a larger role in the
conditions.
Last minute station maintenance, arriving at the QTH late Friday night from
travel coupled with limited sleep the night before took its toll in the last
hours of the contest. Might have made a few more Q’s, but when 20M departed
late in the evening, I seemed ready to go as well.

Only part time, due to work, lost low band antennas in storm, lightning hit tree
and took down the 160m-40m dipole, and didn't have time to fix it.

I'm pleased with the score considering, doubled last years effort, one day I'll
get all 24 hours in...

HQ Multipliers in this contest are almost totally a function of your propagation
to Europe. Not fair, but given the super activity from EU and the HQ stations,
a lot of fun.

I ended up having a free weekend I didn't realize I had, and about 2 weeks ago
decided to operate this contest. It must have been destined to happen, because
the amplifier I blew up in the All Asian contest turned out to need only minor
repairs, and I was pretty much set to go.

I was very fortunate that no real storms hit during the contest. They did come
close! But noise and lightning were not a factor.

The start to JA on 40 was very poor -- much worse than last year. And with the
high bands slow to open in the summer mornings, I didn't know if there would be
any fun at all. Boy was I wrong! 15 was full of signals much earlier than
usual, and it was off to the races right away. 10m sounded good as well, but I
never ran there because 15 was so good.

Amazing how many people really had trouble with my zone. Yes, its 6. I ended
up spelling "six" to some people who just couldn't get it. The auroral flutter
didn't exactly help.

The wheels came off in the late afternoon here, and almost all polar prop was
gone by about 2230z. The exception was the Asian opening on 15, which didn't
really start here until about 0200z (I could hear 5's working stuff at Mach 3
that I couldn't hear a peep out of). Signals were weak, but they were audible,
and some crucial mults were worked. With JA's coming in on the higher bands in
the afternoon, they suffered the fate of the flare and I actually worked as
many EU as Asians. Strange.

The W's were the savior in this contest. Without US there would have been
nothing to do here. The W1AW/7 and NU1AW/9 operations were very easy to work
here. NU1AW/9 (at W0AIH's place?) was ridiculously loud on 10m all day here.
Very good job, guys.

Pretty easy on the household to run a CW only 24 hour contest. Glad the
contest wasn't today! See you in the CW sprint!

Thanks to Joe, NK7U, for the use of his station for this one. KL9A couldn't
make it, so I had the opportunity to do this as a single op. Joe spent the
entire week leading up to the contest on the towers adding additional antennas.
All the extra effort to get things ready was greatly appreciated.

I knew that conditions were going to be affected by the CME, but what wasnt
known was the exact timing of the impact. Before the contest started, I took a
quick scan of 15m, and heard lots of Europeans. This is highly unusual so early
(4am) so I knew I would have to start on 15m with the 2nd radio to work as many
mults as I could. The first sign of impact was around 1930z when the EU
stations began to sound warbly on 15m, and soon after they disappeared
completely. I was surprised to have a decent JA opening after their sunrise,
but that opening was cut short and completely closed by 2330z. I kept checking
15m all night just in case it would recover, but it never did.

I never got a EU run going on 20m as by the time the band should have opened
all polar paths were affected by the CME. This really affected the mult total
on 20, as many HQ mults were left on the table.

This became a domestic contest for me after 2330z. I could hear the stations
down in W6 working JA's and pacific on 20m late into the night, but being so
far north that path was non existent. The last 3 hours were especially hard as
all stations on all bands had a warbly sound and were almost impossible to copy.
I finally had a short JA run on 40m the last 10 minutes of the contest.

I had to shut down for a little over an hour starting at 22z due to a large
cell that past overhead with lots of lightning strikes nearby. We tried to
wait it out as long as possible, but eventually had to unplug everything to be
on the safe side. Joe had a lightning strike last year, and we didn't want to
go through that ordeal again.

Despite the dismal 2nd half, this was still an enjoyable contest. I love the
summertime propagation.

73,

Fun contest despite the X class flare, CME, and local thunderstorms that all
conspired to put a damper on the weekend. Thunderstorms are extremely rare in
this neck of the woods, and when they do appear, duration is typically a few
hours - maximum. Not so this weekend. Friday and Saturday were both active days
with frightening close lightening strikes, thunder, and muggy, thick, humid air.
I had no choice but to stop operating during prime running hours until the
dangerous storms passed. :-(

Meanwhile - back at the contest - not much Europe due to the CME. The low bands
were also very poor to JA and most signals developed a hollow echo quality as
the night progressed. Generally speaking, this felt more like a domestic test
with sprinkles of DX. This probably won't go down as one of my favorite contest
weekends of all time, but it did turn out better than I thought it would.

Thanks to all for the Qs.

Solar flare with CME, lightning, storms, brutal noise, miserable
propagation...what more could you want in a contest!
Score is down about 200,000 points from last year.
Q count was a little down from last year but the multiplier number was way
down.
Far fewer 5 pointers due to poor propagation.
Oh well...next time!

My poor old body wasn't ready for a contest this weekend and neither was old
Sol, obviously. If conditions are bad for QRO, they're awful for QRP. I've
never taken so many breaks during a contest or worked so hard to work stations
that I "always" work.

It'll be better next year. 73, Dave

This was the best effort so far since 2004 for the San Diego Contest Ops and we
found condition were OK considering the solar activity event. We were antenna
challenged this year as we did not have the N6OX borrowed Tower Trailer at the
peak of our 900 ft hill and used only the K6QK 40 ft tower trailer about 40
feet below the peak in front yard. We found 10 meters to be sparse but better
than the past years. 20 and 15 provided the most QSOs and Mults. 40 and yielded
a good amount of CW QSOs but 40 SSB QSOs was way down. Putting up a higher 80
meter dipole on Saturday afternoon to augment our low 80 mtr dipole definitely
help us out on 80 CW and we did not have a 160 mtr antenna
so don't know if we missed much there. EU could hear us fine on 20 and 40 but
receive signals from EU seem weak and we had to work to pull the EU stations
thru. We put a Newbie Op in the hot seat, Rich, KI6RRQ and he did well on SSB
with decent rate when running. We look forward to better condx in 2013/2014 !

SOAPBOX: Took the opportunity to put my new Elecraft KX3 to the test. Only
SOAPBOX: casual operating, about 6 hours total. All contacts were QRP 5W from
SOAPBOX: the KX3 (battery powered). Antenna was multiband fan-dipole and 80m
SOAPBOX: dipole (also used on 160m). Logging was done in Win-Test but all
SOAPBOX: keying was done manually from the KX3's built-in paddles.

Conditions were quite good despite the dire warnings. No line noise for a change
-- some atmospheric noise on low bands but not a real problem.

Nice to work some EU on 10, we haven't had much of that lately. Very many JA
stations. Had to work JA long path for a few hours on 40 Saturday night.

Thanks to Ken for use of the station and thanks for the Q's!

Thursday and Friday nights, 20m stayed wide open all night. That was going to
be my strategy - run 15m hard on Saturday (band opened 1100z), check 10m
occasionally, and hit 20m around 2000z through the night. Big mistake !!! 20m
had a very short opening Saturday afternoon. By 2230z, I went to 40m. The band
was noisy, but very loud signals from EU. 80m was open at 0000z. I kept moving
between 80m and 40m. Twenty meters had lots of US signals, but very few EU.
Bottom line, my strategy fell apart big time. On a positive note, 80m was very
quiet and lots of west coast easily went into the log.

I must have been in a black hole or in a daze throughout the contest. My zones
and HQ stations were significantly lower than everyone else. I just never heard
them.

One final comment is in order. What is with the EU stations and their
amplifiers. One station spent almost 10 minutes trying to tune up their amp on
my quiet run frequency, totally oblivious to repeated requests to qsy. I kept
praying for the amp to blow up so he would be gone. My prayers were never
answered! This seems to becoming a real problem, or perhaps I am just getting
too sensitive.

Thanks for all the qsos. My log should be on LOTW shortly.

After waking up early for a 1.5 hour swim workout, I drove 180km to the other
side of the island, arriving at KH6LC just in time to assist with the cement
pour for a new, 4th tower. I wanted to make sure that I was tired enough to
be able to sleep for 6 hours prior to the start (02:00 local) of the contest.

No problem having an endless stream of stations calling, even with 150 watts.

The low bands were very noisy the first night, but had quieted down
considerably by the next evening.

"Old school" here... Not running SO2R. I have no station of my own, therefore
I'm not able to practice. I'd still like to try it some time.

It's been 35 years since I had operated IARU single-op. I enjoyed the 24-hour
format.

Cobbled together a 40M 1/4 wave vertical and ground mounted it on
Thursday...three quarter wave radials! It worked better'n it should, and
much better than the low 80M Windom I normally used on 40. I'm tempted to
phase another one with it for WAE later this summer.
Lots of great operators out there and it's a privilege working them.

Europe was into West Texas like next door early, then was gone for several hours
and then was good again late daylight. Fifteen was the money band from here.
Forty had good prop but was horribly noisy. Lotsa fun and thanks for the Q's.

I love this contest because the summer conditions are just so different from the
rest of the contest season. The 24-hour format also gives the possibility of a
full effort (or nearly so) even for us senior citizens. I find the full
24-hour cycle of changing propagation fascinating, and full of surprises.

I had a personal goal of 1000 QSOs, but a two-hour thunderstorm, and CME
influence left me just short. Can you say 82 EU QSOs and sub-par openings to
Asia? Though excellent activity from VK/ZL and South America eased the pain of
listening to hours of watery auroral signals.

Thanks to the ARRL and IARU organizations and the great ops for another fun
contest.

Unfortunately, just not a lot of time available for this one. Good conditions
for the first few hours then I had to leave for other commitments When I
returned later in the evening, things had gone bad really quickly.

The one bright spot was being up at 3AM local and having 40 and 80 wiped out by
the aurora, switched to 6m and worked AL7RT via sporadic E double hop for state
number 49. Just need HI now, maybe next weekend.

With only limited time available this IARU-HF test, what can I say? Let's
see...

+ Please pass (increase) the solar flux.
+ No thank you to proton flux & excess polar HF absorption.
+ When I listened, 10m. was again a no-show in the Pacific Northwest.
+ Congratulations to the folks running W1AW/7. Great job, and
+ Great to hear so many WVDXC folks on.

Since July 4 was just over a week ago, I celebrated by allowing a small piece
of dust to get onto my amp's plate tuning, variable capacitor. Un-huh!
Key-down. Whee! You get the idea. Whew--No damage.

Thank you to all who answered my calls.

WRTC-2014 Test site.

Was very very hot. All of the listed ops helped setup, operate and tear down.
N1WK is the Team Captain.

N1WK ordered a new Dunestaer Triplexer last Friday, mentioned it was for WRTC
test operation and it arrived on Monday. Kim mounted the triplexer and
triplexers to a board and was ready to rock.
Setup on Friday, blew up the 15m section of the new Dunestar Triplexer after 15
min of CQs. KB1H telephoned Ron @ Dunestar and had the appropriate capacitor
values. KB1H and N1WK took the 100 mile round-trip ride to the NZ1U barn in
Killingly CT to retrieve the parts. At 5a local W1UJ installed what was
thought to be the prepared (they returned around 0200 local) and testing was
not very good, until NB1U and KB1H pointed out there was another cap missing, 4
series caps and was fb and 100% in operation About an hour to go to the
start.....

We really beat on the triplexer and filters and it really played well.

We are all used to running HP and significant stacked arrays and dropping 1000w
and ~13 elements makes it necessary to hunt for those mults a bit more and
change the technique significantly.

Operators were rotated through as needed.

Old HyGain 105-BAS 5 ele. yagi ( this is an original Long John I have owned for
many years and have kept repairing it every time a storm or hurricane took it
down in Florida, I have since rebuilt it to the new LJ-105 Specs and it really
plays well )
N1MM logging ( I have Win Test but I love the ease of N1MM for Manual Logging
)

Well had very high hopes when I saw the numbers going into this one. I found
out about the X Flare the night before. I had just got back in town from a 6
week road trip for work, had to assemble the station, all antenna feeds were
out at the tower ( I have not been home enough in 3 years to get my feeds where
I want them ), so when I leave I roll them up and put them at the base of my 38
foot Rohn HBX tower so my lawn guy doesn't destroy them when he cuts my grass
every week. I only have the TH7DX and 105BAs on the tower at 40 & 47 feet. All
my wire antennas have blown down from storms and I have not had time to put
anything up, so I decided I was just going to work low power mixed on the high
bands until they died. Well the sun just went down on Saturday and I had a
crazy notion that still had the remnants of a 160 inv. L hanging in some
trees. The anchor line broke and the wind did what it wanted to when I was
gone, so I had about 25 feet of slack on the ground at the feed point, so I
tied a piece of string to the random wire and pulled it out to a tree about 2o
feet away so the wire went from the feed point on the ground rod, out 20 feet,
then back up in the air somewhere in the tree tops ( approx. 45 feet upo only
). Didn't have any radials so just a plain random wire with a Dentron MT-2000A
tuner. I was able to get pretty good matches on the watt meter on all 3 low
bands, so off to town I went, decided to make a run to the end. Even with a
nice match, I am sure it was very inefficent but heck, it gave me hope to work
everything I heard, and even though it took sometimes 15-20 calls before they
got it right, I was still making Q's. It was amazing to see how I could work
most of the Europeans I heard on 40 & 80, even Hawaii, ZL & VK, but could not
break through to most of the stuff to the south of me in the Carribean, Central
& South America...I really get a thrill seeing how much I can do with this small
station and low power and crappy antennas, but man, I need an AMP!!

This was my first attempt at the IARU from the W6YI superstation. Dan, N6MJ has
done it from here several times, so I had some big shoes to fill. This time he
went to NK7U so I could have a shot at some more WRTC points.

Conditions were just OK with the flair happening, but there was no big 20 M
opening to EU and 10 was just for mult snatching in SA. Had some nice runs to
Asia and the Pacific on the low bands after about 2 AM. Just barely worked the
loudest HQ stations in EU on 40 before it just shut down a bit after sunset.

Thanks to all the AC and R guys who moved for me. And congrats to the great
job by the IARU and ARRL HQ stations. You guys were loud everywhere except
10.

Finally, thanks as always to Jim, W6YI for the use of the Superstation and some
mighty good eats.

Aside from the W1AW/KL7 effort a few years ago, this is the first year to
actually run high power from KL2R in IARU. I'm glad I had the extra juice,
because the CME really hammered the high latitudes in a big way; i.e., Kp at
storm levels, aurora maxed out at 10. Despite the difficult conditions, it was
fun, and I learned a few more things about adapting operating technique
according to the noise characteristics in the headsets. We usually operate
this as M/S mixed-mode, but I am very happy I did not invite guests to tortue
them on phone. CW was the only way to go.
 
NE7D   SO CW HP   89,7182012-07-15 19:02:11
I'm considering breaching my allegiance to LP-only and buying a KPA500. A good
friend loaned me a 500W amp to begin the weaning process and I have to admit it
did provide a new blend of "fun." I enjoyed the longer runs and fewer calls to
make S&P contacts -- so much so that I didn't think much about strategies:
seeking out mults, zones and HQ stations, tactical band changes, etc. Just
enjoyed making any contacts within my reach -- so a lot of single-pointers and
a very modest score. Also verified I didn't fry the DSL modem and no neighbors
showed up with torches and pitchforks. Time to call 1-800-elecraft!

No certificates for me this year, will be near the bottom of the HP gang, but
had a good time even with the weird propagation.

Tnx for the contacts . . . 73, Rock NE7D

I was unable to dedicate the full 24 hrs to the contest. Yardwork and housework
plus a few short naps ate up some time. I did however end up with more time on
the air than I had originally planned. Even with poor propagation for the last
1/3 of the event, contesting proves to be a lot more fun than yardwork!!

As many have already mentioned the geomagnetic storming wreaked havoc on the
bands starting Satuday evening here. No 15m Asia runs and no 20m EU or Middle
East propagation after sunset. Pretty much any path remotely close to polar was
shot. Then it got even worse. By 0700z even 40m shut down too. Took a nap and
tried again at 1000z but it was even worse with the MUF at 6 Mhz. I was forced
to fight the QRN on 80m from storms around the region just to make it to 800
Q's. Also 10m was fruitless again as well. I didn't waste any time there at
all.

Even with shotty propagation for a good chunk of the test, it was still a lot
of fun. Thanks to all who worked me. Hope to see you next time!!

My first IARU (except one I played in mid-90s from Dallas with a multiband
vertical -- doesn't count, hi-hi). Oh boy, it's DIFFERENT! Everything worked
well, antennas rotated and radiated, even noise was out most of the time, so
now it's clear that the "piece" between the chair and transceiver may be the
weakest part in every station design. I really didn't know what band to be on,
how to search for mults, etc.. But now I know how much the mid-summer contests
are different from spring/fall ones. Indeed, learning is a life-long endeavor.
 
KØVXU   SO Mixed HP   156,4002012-07-15 19:29:23
Time in test was limited and spent mostly in the nighttime hours. 10 Meters was
a surprise that was short lived. 15 and 20 Meters were good for mults during
the short time on those bands. QRN was quite high from atmospherics and from a
pesky line noise that has popped up during the hot, dry weather here (Temp was
98F/37C). Of course, the lousy solar conditions made for poor propagation on
all bands, but especially on 10 Meters.

40 Phone was an unexpected source of Q's. Not much in the way of DX but plenty
of NA to work. Almost all EU DX was in zone 28 or 36. SA DX was not plentiful
but still a help. Mostly S&P on 40 (both phone and CW) except for a short run
on phone.

All in all, it was a fun contest. Thanks to all who gave me a QSO.

Contest Highlights:
1. Good propagation into West Coast NA on 20m, Saturday night.
2. Good propagation into NA/SA during Sunday morning on 15m and during sunset
on 40m
3. Unfortunately I had a stuck rotor which was beaming JA/NA and this resulted
in a very bad run towards EU and practically nothing heard from East Coast NA.
4. 10m was not good enough for a run.
5. 40m was rather noisy on Sunday evening.

Overall, it was still a fun contest and managed to improve my last year's
record despite the stuck beam and my tiredness. Thank you for all the QSOs and
see you again next year.

It was slow going on 10M this year thanks to the solar eruptions messing with
propagation. Band was dead at contest start, and when it came alive at 1340z I
heard/worked 2 EU, then none heard until 2145z when worked a few more. Only
heard/worked 1 VK, 1 ZL, 1 JA, 3 KH6, 3 VE, and rest were NA and SA and 3
Caribbbeans. No XE or Central America or Africa or Asia heard. Signal paths
were sometimes skewed by up to 90 degrees and no long path signals heard. There
was unusual QSB, with signals popping up from nothing to S5 to S9 for a minute
or few, and then disappearing never to be heard again. And a few like NU1AW/9
and W1AW/7 were readable for much longer periods. 10M died about 0030 for me
and never came back alive.

Great FUN inspite of disturbed CNDX! Some mind blowing multiplier scores from
individual efforts challenge the organizers to look closer at the reality and
may be change the rules for single ops so that the SO2R becomes a separate
category. I personaly have little if any confidence in those exceptionaly high
multipliers found in some SO2R logs. Let them compete among themselves and let
us SINGLE ops compete with each other.

Thanks to Grigory UN9LG for leting me use his superb station again!
Thank you all for QSOs!

Great conditions to start, not so great when to finish. 15 was awesome on
Saturday. Lots of EU. Did not hear much from AF. A short JA opening in the
late afternoon. Seemed to last around a hour here. None were strong. Only
other AS was 1 BY an 1 HL and a couple of UA9's and UN's. 20 was not good
Saturday night - it had been open all night during the week. Low bands were
good. Worked several EU stations on 80. 160 was fairly quiet but did not hear
much activity. Sunday morning was pretty slow with lots of flutter from the
CME. Did make for some good 6M AU Sunday afternoon. W1AW and NU1AW on 6
bands. My mults were up about 20 over last year adn Q's were up over 200 but
worked a lot more 1 pointers than in previous years. Must have missed any EU
on 10M. Worked 2 I believe. Missed some time to visit with my great grandson
- well worth the time spent.

Wanted to use a skimmer and do S&P only, so entered the M/S CW-only HP category
with just me as op. Just S&Ping (no RUNning), did 602 CW Qs from my modest SO1R
station.

(The K3's DSP and Noise Reduction really made an immense difference reducing
the noise and junk on the bands during the flare, and minimized my fatigue
considerably during that time. With my old rigs, I would probably have shot
myself under those conditions. :-0 )

Used WA7LNW's skimmer spots and sometimes my own, but there were some busted
callsigns so I was glad I listened carefully to each actual callsign.

I think this effort proved to me that a skimmer can be useful as an adjunct to
a RUN station in any contest operation, M/S or single op.

Saturday started out moderately well with the planetary A at 3 and K=1, but it
soured after 17Z. I quit and enjoyed an unplanned day off with my wife. I
returned after dinner to find the A at 17. Virtually no over-the-pole opening
to western Asia and eastern Europe on 20m. Heavy static from local storms and
almost nothing out of the country on 40m. At this point the contest becomes a
trial by boredom. The winners soldier on. Those who have no hope of winning
play for a while and then quit early, making it even harder for those who
stay.

See you next year.

long path EU / short path NA on 20m for a couple of hours, and 10m had bursts
of activity - but more lilkly that no-body sat up there calling - apart from
the 8N8HQ JARL HQ Station who was audible about 95% of the time....

For Fabian, DO7FAB, it was the first contest. He worked in order to his licence

A contest of two halves. Saturday conditions were very good on 10m and 15m.
Sunday the high bands were much quieter and most daylight activity was on 20m.
Equipment used: FT5000MP with amplifier to A3S at 75 feet, 40m dipole at 70
feet, 80m vertical and inverted V with apex at 70 feet, top band inverted V
with apex at 70 feet.

It was "Friday 13th" when British airways cancelled my flight. I have to travel
very early morning on Saturday so I do not have enough rest before the
contest. Luckily all antenna is fixed well before the contest, thanks to club's
chief engineer, Phil GJ4CBQ. This time club has only one tribander so I used
Inrad triplexer first time and it worked quite well. Despite not many 5 points
QSO were made on Sunday, my score is higher than last year thanks to nice
propagation until around 02Z and still good level of activities within EU. .
My operating style this time is CW on K3 for run, SSB on 1000MP for search HQ
multi. Less than 10% SSB QSO.
My next visit to the island is early August for EU HF championship and NA QSO
party CW. Thanks for all contacts.

Technically, SOAB(ASSISTED), CW, LP
but under IARU rules, Multi-Single.

All Search and Pounce except for one run on
14006 for the last hour and ten minutes that
netted 79 QSOs and one HQ Mult.

IC756PROIII, SO1R.

ZeroFive 43 Foot Vertical on 40, 20, and 10

ZeroFive 33 Foot Vertical as Inverted L cut for 80,
used on 160, 80, and 15.

Both are on the edge of the 60 foot bluff on the Atlantic.

Operated 19 hours, a new record for me for a 24 hour
contest in recent years, no drugs involved.

I stayed up until 0400 (5am local) when those 5 point
USA Qs were waning and so was I, got up at 0800 to find
one HQ Mult on 160, and then nada until 0850 when the
Asiatic Russians opened on 20.

Thanks to N1MM's Call History, all spots for those
pseudo-WRTC stations were flagged as a new multiplier,
making it easy to work all that were spotted, and
their signals were uniformly good.
Unfortunately, I could not respond to the three
requests for me to move, under the IARU 10 Minute Rule.

Conditions were very good overall, many, many times,
I was the only caller and I continue to be surprisingly
well heard. But it was obvious that many of the HQ
Station Ops were not serious contesters. I would send
my EI/W5GN callsign at 30 wpm, and if there was not
response, I'd resend at 28, wait a few seconds, resend
at 26, sometimes repeating the call twice, then at 24,
pausing for them to finally recognize the call sign.
In a few cases I actually took the speed down to 18wpm
before they finally figured out my callsign.
Only one HQ station gave up and left the frequency!
 
N1UR   SO SSB LP   1,039,3862012-07-16 04:07:18
Interesting conditions. A great start on 15M to EU and constant nice rate on 15
and 20. 10 was a disappointment given the flare and SFI. Only worked TM0HQ
from the EU mainland despite calling about 10 others that I could hear but
probably did not have their beams pointing West. Tried a few CQs but never an
answer on 10M.

No Asia at all because of disturbance except for YB HQ station on skew path
15M. Pacific had good activity and conditions.

Broke the old SSB LP record by a wide margin. Will be fun to see if conditions
hold like this for another year or 2.

The disturbance generated a K of 6 by the end of the contest which completely
shut down activity (combined with local USA sleep time). Wanted to go the 24
hours but it was pointless around 3:30am local. So took a sleep break.
Finished the contest running 40M locals when normally the last hour is a great
JA run on 20M. Not this year.

Thanks for the Qs.

Started late and missed 10m ES but found conditions generally better the
expected with the disturbances caused by the sun but went too late to 20m so
missed most of the US stations.
In the middle of the nicht the anode variable of the linear did not move
anymore (lost vacuum)? Used only the IC-2KL then with less power throgh the
rest of the contest.

Thanks to all who called me and replied to my calls.

First of all, many thanks to Bob, W8ERD, and his lovely wife, Judy, for
providing me with the opportunity to operate this event from his station. Bob
recently underwent an extensive antenna project and he needed someone to test
his new system. I promised to behave, Judy agreed, and I enjoyed an extremely
pleasant contest experience.

I was debating about running high power but decided against it. Learning to
use the amp would be one more thing to forget about in the heat of the battle.
As it was, the unfamaliar radio and antenna system was enough of a challenge.
It would also give me a decent comparison to my home station's wire antenna
sysem which is low power also.

It seems that there are more HQ stations in this event every year. That's a
good thing and it keeps things exciting with the additional mults. You have to
balance the one pointers against the new multiplier. With none of the signle
ops on the cluster, it makes everyone spend some time S & P'ing if they want to
increase their score.

I worked a bunch of new stuff which was really exciting for me. The watery
signals for the three hours or so Sunday morning was a mean trick by the
propagation gods; but, then, everyone had to put up with it. I did manage to
find TM0HQ, NU1AW/9, and W0UA on all six bands. Thanks guys. Although I
didn't specifically look for the WRTC2014 Test Stations during the contest, I
did manage to work them all. I had four Q's with W1MJ and WB1Z, three Q's with
K1GQ, K1ZD, N2KW, N9NB, NI1L, W1MA, W1SJ, and W1UJ, and two Q's with K1RQ, W1HH,
and W1UE.

The station consisted of a Yaesu FT-2000D (kept at 150 watts) and the software
behind the scenes was N1MM. The antenna farm consisted of individual inverted
tower ground planes for 80 and 160 meters, 4 element Yagi at 80', and a 4
element SteppIR for 20, 15 and 10 at 70'.

It's always nice to say HI to old friends. Thanks to all who found their way
into my log. I'll be looking for you next year be it with my wires or a bunch
of aluminum.

Even with the strange conditions (which oddly enough added made the contest more
exciting) I ended up working more JAs than any other country except for the US.
I even had more JAs (50) than VEs (44). I worked 14 JAs on 10M. I find that
even 24 hours with no sleep leads to a lost day on Sunday, which I spent as a
couch potato, alternately reading and dozing. Thanks for all the fun!

WHY is a single op running QRP and using Skimmer equated to
10 ops running 1.5 Kw and using skimmer? [ Both are put in the same,MULTI,

Maybe folks who use logging programs, or autotuners, or solid state devices,
should also be penalized for being Radicals???

Are the organizers against technical progress?

At times it felt like I was pulling hen's teeth trying to break through
pile-ups. Antenna polarity diversity proved helpful a number of times as
propagation condx. changed.
A real treat was hearing (unfortunately unable to break thru) E51TAI in the
very capable hands of a YL op on 15M abt 0300Z, long after I had left the band
hours earlier in favor of a more active 20M. 2nd treat was contacting VK7 on an
otherwise dead 40M at 0835Z. I was beginning to think my antennas had flown the
coop while I took a 4 hr. "nap." Alas, it was the result of the X-flare, and
there were quiet condx. all around.
My 40M noise level is typ. S5-7, but it REALLY does drop in the wee hours of
the morning at this QTH. Should I be praying for more power outages?? ;J

good but the cooling system was too noisy, and without headphones you can't
stay in the room, HI. Anyhow, enjoyable contest and good condx on 15m. Thanks

After a long several days with virtually nothing to work, the prayers to the
IARU gods brought at least OK conditions for the weekend. I didn't work anyone
in Africa or Oceania and only a few Asians. My effort was 95% S&P and my few
"runs" brought some log fodder/filler, except on 80 where someone must've
spotted me because there were eight or so HQ stations who called me one after
the other. Low power doesn't bringe many pileups but I tried a few. Ones that
got away were disappointing but they numbered fewer than the fingers on one
hand.

80 was very noisy and fairly unproductive, 40 wasn't great, 20 could have been
better, 15 was the money band and 10 netted more than I expected. My plan for
a mixed mode operation went down the tubes when I realized how poor conditions
were.
 
N4WW   M/S HP   529,1002012-07-16 07:59:23
I really like this contest once I get started but I dont prep for it or look
forward to it, hence a poor effort. The world wide format like arrl 10 meter
contest gives this the feel of a real dx contest. The first few years this
contest was started we did a good multi op effort and usually placed in top
three each year. Need to go back to that maybe for next 2-3 years while the
spots are shining down.

Lots of great ops at HQ stations in europe that makes this contest so much fun.
John w4ix comments about throwing wires into the trees at night and working
almost all the euros on 80/40 is a testament to their great operating and good
signals on all bands.

Conditions were really weird as the disturbed prop hit full force early Sunday
morning. The flutter was unbelieveable on 40 meter signals. I was lucky to work
JA as the signals were very distorted. No other war stories except e21eic with
his great signal came through about 1600z here on 15. A couple UP/UN stations
and AT1HQ in India made that funny over the pole opening from 1600-1700 z fun.
Lots of BY stations on 15 and some on 20 but couldnt get my signal heard to BY
on 40 with disturbed conditions.

Good scores from contest gurus k5kg and ad4z and also k0luz,n4uu,k9om,wd4ahz

I keep re-adding that number in the 'HQ Mults' field and it keeps coming up with
that same low total. Bummer! But then, I keep telling myself "No more
summertime contests!" Apparently I'm not listening to me. At least this time
I played 18 holes on Friday evening and again on Sunday. My scores were about
the same as that HQ Mults total. Let's see, want HQ Mults HIGHER, golf score
LOWER. OK, got it...

This thing was really well-attended--lots of activity from everywhere and
thankfully, lots of W and VE folks--we needed that what with the echo-chamber
on the DX paths. It really is kind of a hump-buster--24 hours straight through,
no breaks, no foolin' around. These free-for-all, everyone-works-everyone
contests are the BEST, though! Actually, the bands seemed fairly normal here
until around 8 PM local Saturday. 20 was still open to JA, though it closed
early, but EU was tightly locked-down. But at that point the storm did clamp
down hard for the last 10 hours. Signals on 40 from Asia were sooo
Aurora-smeared. And I had clean shots at 2 Asian mults on 80 in the last
hour--they heard me, alright, but couldn't decipher my house-of-mirrors echoed
calls. Chuck said afterwards that the average Boulder K for the whole event was
4.8, peaking at 7. My old joke with Chuck is that if it gets over 6 it's time
to break out the high-SPF Coppertone. I've always thought it's better to trust
your ears than those numbers anyway.

The folks at W1AW/7 and NU1AW/9 did themselves proud, great job, congrats guys!
Thanks to Ed, VE4VT,(formerly VE4EAR) for moving bands with me. Thanks to WH6R
who called-in for Zone 61 on 40 at 11:58Z. Thanks Brian, 9J2BO, for calling-in
on several bands. Thanks, Chuck, the station worked great & problem-free, the
big 40 doesn't seem to notice the missing tip on its director! No local
WX-problems either, I think that's a first for this event.
That's OK, the propagated QRN was more than enough, thanks...

OK, no more summertime contests! Well...maybe just 'til next summer...

Strategy: Mellow (certainly the most relaxing contest entry of my lifetime)

Class: 1 Radio, 1 Tower

"Coasting" along during this contest is summed up by the more relaxed approach
of getting to know Bob and the station and the reminiscent perspective of 1
radio, 1 tower with 1 rotor. I did not sense any competition going in which
really allowed me to enjoy the experience and basic strategy of moving up and
down the bands based on tower direction; mainly following the terminator. It
was an exercise in mixing conversation with DX/S&P'ing and Contesting in 20-30
min chunks by coasting the 2-3 open bands then turning the beam and repeating.
Quite an enjoyable ride.

Tower Direction Recap: 20-10m: Beam EU, then East USA, then SE. Turn to NW for
JA, then SW for Pacific. 40/80: Turn back NE to EU, East, SE, NW and SW,
complete. Add a couple rotations for random DX'ing (hoping for odd skew
paths).

Highlights:

10m: Hearing IO9HQ work a PY while beaming SE late in the day
80m: Feeling really loud with 2el at 200' even with the summer QRN


I felt loud on all bands but never any real runs materialized, here's the run
rate data:

N7IP Max Rates:

Plenty of off time to enjoy fetching an espresso in town, a walk, some
exploring the bands (tuning), etc.

Due to family reunion, could only do early morning and late evening. Lots of
QSB on 15, not a hit on 10, 20 held out the best. All S&P only.

Had a good time. Never had any real rate, best hour was a 71. Worked 270 EU
only and ~600 W/VE. No sucess at all cq'ing into EU on 15/20.

160/80 were pleasant surprises, but no z6 on 160 although i did work a couple
EU.

Rules make it not as much fun for a multi-op.

Off for about 2 hours because of electrical storms in area.

Had the pleasure of having Sandy, YO3ND, operate with us, while visiting N2YO.
Had plenty of time BS, and we did.

Phone sucks! I ACTUALLY got on SSB and made about 5 contacts, then 'ran away,
screaming into the night...'

Thanks for all the Q's.
 
4O3A(E73A/9A3A)   SO CW HP   2,334,6402012-07-16 11:22:26
Instead of a small pistol fun as 4U1GSC, thanks to Ranko's new hobby and lack of
antennas for a serious M/S effort, I've got an opportunity for something a bit
more challenging - to operate IARU HF from the 4O3A super-station. The station
is still recovering from the damage sustained by bad weather in January, but
the main hardware outside is still not to be under-estimated.

The original plan to do a SOAB Mixed effort has been changed just a few minutes
before the contest due to uncertainties regarding the SO2R controller and no
time to test if phone devices all work (Ranko was absent, flying around
Obosnik). Most of the time antennas were fixed to NA and JA, so multiplier
score could have been better. Propagation and lack of the real SO2R practice
with Ranko's hardware are to blame too.... missed NU1AW/8 who called me but I
could not find Insert key (actually does not exist on 4O3A customized contest
keyboard). By the time I replied NU1AW/8 was gone!

During the first half propagation has been tolerable, quite a few NA stations
worked on 15, but with limited pile ups. At some points on Sunday signal levels
dropped drastically, allowing me to almost event more focus on R2 and work
whatever I could hear. Interesting opening to JA on 10m during the last contest
hours came as a reward for persistently using second radio, rather than focusing
on CQ.

I managed to bring HQ totals close to the last year 4O3A M/S effort (191 vs 195
HQs, 117 vs 146 zones), but considering that we had for the first time
interlocked in-band dipole antennas, access to the cluster and skimmer and had
a multiplier station within the contest rules, I wish I had more multipliers,
but I can't figure out how, because 419 QSOs seemed a reasonable number.
Without the second radio, with propagation like this weekend, at least my
enjoyment would have been greatly reduced.

To my surprise (or no surprise!) that was still not good enough and my
multiplier score sucks compared to some claimed scores.

After reading Willy's (UA9BA aka UP2L)comments I must disagree that SO2R should
be a separate category - I made over 400 real SO2R QSOs with the R2, which means
searched for and than copied all the stations by my own pair of ears, worked
simultaneously on the R1/R2 almost full time, even QSY-ed a few who were
willing to do so...If Willy was aiming at other technology advances hiding
behind the SO2R tick, as this is only hobby, a very specific one, maybe the
organizers can introduce special trophies for fair play because it is obvious
that fun is not enough for all of us, some are desperate for a piece of wood on
the wall at any expense.

Willy, my personal satisfaction is the fact I can "survive" cruel rules, stay
awake for 60 hours if required, but also to sleep well afterwards, not
expecting repercussions.

Thanks to Ranko for letting me use his super-station. As I still have a lot of
to learn this was yet another experience I will always remember. Special thanks
to Dragan, 4O4A, who met me in Bar, 4O and took me to the 4O3A location and
Rade, 4O/E74IW, for getting hardware stuff ready just in time.

As always, thanks to John Evans N3HBX for letting use the Poolesville station.

A major windstorm blew through the DC area a couple weeks ago - bringing 80 MPH
wind gusts, lightning, and cutting power to over 1.5 million people. The
Poolesville station was not immune. The 80 meter Lazy H was destroyed and
parts of it came crashing down and to rest on the guy wires of the 15 meter
tower. We could not turn that tower at all. Our 40/10 tower also failed and
was stuck due north. So, we were on secondary antennas for much of the event.

The event itself was quite fun. We had VERY low expectations given the X1
flare during the week and the anticipated CME. Condx held out for several
hours and we had a terrific first hour on 15. That didn't last and 20 (while
decent) was not what it could have been (slow overnight runs and no depth). 40
was affected as well with runs not being as deep and raspy buzz in the morning.

We actually did quite well on 80 and 160 - skimmer seems to do that to you on
CW...

Congrats to all the multi-op efforts.
 
3V8BB(KF5EYY)   SO Mixed HP   3,397,4082012-07-16 12:05:07
Going to 3V8BB QTH on Saturday morning, I was listening to the newsreader in a
local FM station announcing the weather predictions; "Temperature will reach
its maximum today at noon with 42°C!!" (...humm, when contest starts!) "and
cold winds will blow sunday afternoon deacreasing temperature" (...after the
end of the contest!!).
Fortunately, I was "armed" with an air blower placed at 1m from me, blowing at
full speed! And in my mind I was saying "Ash, no pain, no gain!"

This year's IARU HF participation is my first attempt with SO-HP Operation. I
had the chance to work HP in MS Category but never as Single Op! Competing with
BIG guns was something I was thinking of before the contest. I was taking things
seriously (than it should be!) and that was a little bit stressful for me. Added
to that a VOX that messed up in the first 30 minutes... panic... not really best
contest start!
Little by little, pileups are there and I started forgetting about score and
temperature, just enjoyed running!

Propagation was bad on Satuday and slightly improved on Sunday.

The QSO number looks interesting to me but the Multiplier score is "shameful"
:) and that's quite normal as I didn't think about SO2R Setup; a learnt lesson
for the upcoming contests!

Nice to meet friend of mine; NB2T, LZ3FN, RF9C and others.
Thanks for all the QSOs guys... Thanks to Hrane YT1AD for allowing me to use
the station.

Best 10 minutes: 47 QSO

Planned to operate 8+ hours but a family emergency intervened and I was on for

found 4 HQ stations so HQ activity was good.

Just a casual part time effort ( between other summer activities ) testing
different antennas and different SO2R configurations for the fall season but
still lots of fun. QSB was remarkable at times with both DX and Stateside
stations 20 over 9 one second and no copy a few seconds later only to repeat
the cycle again a few seconds after that. Overall condx weren't the best
( probably due to the CME that arrived, oddly enough, at 1200Z Saturday just in
time for the contest ). Made things very interesting at times!

Had some trouble with my otherwise trusty Elecraft K3 on 15 m. :-( When
switching back from TX to RX in 80% of all cases I had some attenuation in the
RX path, something around 10-15 dB like a stuck relay. Would not know of any
band-specific TX/RX switching circuits but didn't dig into the schematics yet.
Will have to contact Elecraft support, I suppose. Really strange as it only
effected 15 m. Using the same antenna (and antenna switching circuit and coax)
for 20 & 10 m, too, I can rule that out as the culprit ...

Besides this I found conditions sucked. Not much US and their signals quite
attenuated. Not a single JA either. Aurora played it's full up here in Northern
Germany. But was lucky to catch some very good E-skip opening Saturday afternoon
on 10 m. That made up for the bad condx a bit at least. :-)

Big thanks to DQ4W team for allowing me to use their fine station. Special
thanks to DK9TN, DK4YJ and DL1MGB to put an extra effort so I wouldnt have any
excuses - and I dont, it's was all on me :-)

Great time before, during and after the contest with good buddies, was worth
the trip and still expect nice pile of WRTC points - which were activity
drivers.

During the years, traveling a bit made me try few different radios and setups -
2x TS850S + Alpha91 used this weekend made me wonder why do we actually need all
these new fancy stuff. 4 buttons and no menus :-)

Great battle with DJ5MW, our homeland (9A1P) recipe (always focus on North
America) paid off very well (>40% NA QSOs) and despite 200 qsos less I was head
to head with Manfred. Stupid of me was to ask Manfred the QSO count each time we
had a QSO. Maybe it affected my agressivity a bit in the last several hours with
huge drop on 2nd radio QSOs (350 2nd radio QSOs in total)

EUHFC, WAE CW comming soon - hear you :-)

This was the contest weekend that almost never happened. A few weeks ago the
station had a slight run in with some lightening. Fortunately, it was slight,
but it took out 6 or the 7 rotors. Good news was the ARRL insurance process
was efficient and painless. The new parts arrived quickly. The bad news was
that due to the weather the tower work took me some time. The 100+ temps, more
lightening and frequent rain inserted a bit of a delay in the required 11 tower
climbs. The last climb was last week on Wednesday night, so we were then GOOD
TO GO.

This was the first time we had the opportunity to have Tony, K4QE, join the
crew. Hope he had as much fun operating with us as we did with him. His
personality fit right in and he quickly became one of the gang. Hopefully he
will be back for more multi op, multi radio events.

While on the topic of multi op events, yes, we also would like to add our
complaint to the growing list of support for some changes or additions to the
allowable IARU contest classifications. Sure wish either working mults on rig
2 in the MS classification or a M2 class could be added.

As for the conditions and results, well, for the last 3 years we finished in
10th place. We always do OK, but not really well and certainly not great. The
scores posted so far again prove that point out. One thing has been true and
that is we are consistent. Our Q count, mults, points have continued to keep
the final scores within 100K for this year and the previous 3.

We do always score in the "had fun" ranking. That was again true this year.
Chef Archie (aka: Jack, W0UCE) again made us an outstanding dinner on Saturday
night. NOTE: That was the only time it was good have one rig on the air!

Congrats to the other MS entries for some VERY outstanding scores, thanks to
everyone for the Qs and see you next time.

Always enjoy the IARU - everyone works everyone format....and its just the right
length for summertime fun.

Such a shame the sun dropped a bomb on us on Sunday but the first 12 hours were
terrific.

Haven't had the chance to enjoy operating N2NT's well equipped station for
three years - the last time was the 2009 IARU - did a fun QRP effort on my 60th
birthday. Since then Andy has added a six element 80M vertical beam and a few
other goodies. Felt loud on every band.

Went over to the station to get checked out Friday evening. The antenna
switching isn't exactly intuitive so we spent an hour going through all of the
permutations band by band. Having a 'cheat sheet' came in handy on Saturday.

Used two op aids: A listing of known 2012 HQ stations, and the rate sheet from
Alex's 2010 winning USA effort at K3CR. Knowing what to expect in terms of
hourly rate and mults per band along with current band conditions helped guide
band and mode selection strategy on the fly.

As mentioned earlier, the first 12 hours were really fun. 15M was the daytime
money band, with strong EU runs, USA/VE short skip, some Middle East Asia and
VU, and later a some loud JAs. Good thing 15M produced since 20M was an
absorption mess much of the day...and then only briefly good to EU just before
sunset here. Kept a close eye on 10M and was rewarded with several short
bursts of multiplier maddness at various times throughout daylight. As usual
the HQ stations were EU beacons on ten.

Keeping an eye on the Win-Test grayline map, I made sure to slide down to 40,
80 and finally 160 when the sun got low in my western sky - to maximize the
chance to run EU before their earlier summertime sunrise. Pleased to find the
QRN levels tolerable, and pleasantly surprised to hear so many workable EU HQ
stations on TopBand.

But the predicted solar event hit with earnest after 00Z and only got worse
through the end. Other than some unexpected runs of VK/ZL on twenty, then
fourty, and near sunrise on 80M, it was difficult to find much volume of
workable DX the last few hours. Mostly filled in by running VE/Ws. Took a 40
minute nap about 03z.... just four hours sleep the night before caught up with
me. Looking back, during the course of the contest I operated at least 25%
more SSB than I'd expected too at the start. Being SO1R, the rate suffered
everytime I'd tune CW and then PH segments for HQ and zone mults...but felt the
score potential tradeoff was justified. I've given up arguing the case for SO1R
vs. SO2R entry classes.....but the reality remains SO2R equipped stations enjoy
a measurable and significant scoring advantage. Enuf said. The statistic
program says I had 48% EU, 48% USA, and 4% elsewhere in the log.

Its always great to work so many of my contesting friends and acquaintences ...
and I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at WRTC 2014. Worked several of
the WRTC 'test' stations on several bands.

Thanks again to Andy and Bonnie for being such great hosts. When the
temperature in the shack approached 92F (running amps, xcvrs, computers, etc.
on a very hot day was too much for the A/C), Andy put some fans in the windows
to make things much more livable.

Planning trips down to P40W for CQWW PH and CW. So look forward to working
many of you again in the fall from my home away from home.

IARU 2012 was my first-ever DX contest. Wayne, N6NB, and I came to Rarotonga in
the South Cook Islands in early March so Wayne could get on during the ARRL DX
Phone contest. We enjoyed the Cook Islands so much that we decided to return
in July for IARU! In preparation for the trip, we shipped a 15' mast, a
rotator and a TH-2 tribander ahead of time. (Thank you to Victor, E51CG, for
storing them for us!) We brought an IC-7000 and a small amplifier in our
luggage. The tribander and a 40 meter dipole went on a second floor balcony at
our motel--not very high but with a clear shot out to sea.

The station seemed to work very well--after an initial scare. Shortly after we
put up and tested the antennas, we had 12 hours of heavy rains and high winds.
The SWR at resonance on 15 and 20 went from 1.2 to 1 during initial testing to
an intolerable 4 to 1. We lowered and dismantled the TH-2. The traps were
soaked even though the drain holes were all mounted downward. Although the
antenna was brand new, one trap end cap slipped off the trap unit and others
became loose enough to allow water inside. I took apart all eight traps and
dried them with a borrowed hair dryer. Then I taped the end caps to try to
keep them in place and waterproof them. When the TH-2 went back up the
afternoon before the contest, the SWR again looked good, but then another
downpour began. Fortunately, the taped end caps did their job and the traps
stayed dry enough that the SWR was okay throughout a weekend of heavy rain and
high winds. Operating with thunder and lightning all around was frightening.

Since Wayne operated last time, this was my turn! I operated IARU as a
single-op unassisted on SSB only. The contest was fun and I had a chance to
manage some serious pile-ups. I spent almost all of my 15 hours on the air
"running," not searching and pouncing. The main disappointment was the
scarcity of European contacts (I heard very few signals from Europe). It was
nice to hear friends from back home and hundreds of new calls from many
countries. Altogether, I made more than 1,400 contacts during IARU plus
another 650 during a practice run the evening before the contest. Thanks to
everyone who stood by patiently to work me (sometimes for upwards of 30
minutes!). It was definitely a memorable experience for me!

If you'd like a QSL, please send one via N6NB.

Internet access is limited here. I'm sending this from an internet cafe in
Avarua.

The IARU is one of my favorite contests and I always try to be around for it. I
like the 24-hour format, the fact that it starts at 8 AM where I live, the large
number of loud HQ stations (that even small stations like mine can easily work),
and the work-everyone format. The best thing is that one can almost be back to
a normal physical condition by Monday morning.

For this year, I spent quite a bit of time putting up a couple of new wires and
analyzing last year’s results, but of course there is never enough time to do
everything. Nevertheless, I was probably better prepared for this IARU than
ever before. My only goal this year was to do better than last year and I
managed to boost the score by over 25%, so I can’t complain. But it looks
like everyone else may have done the same!

The setup here is a single K3, five separate dipoles mostly between 40-60 feet,
and a small tribander set up on a wobbly 32-foot mast supported at the top by a
rope tied between two trees. I set this antenna up before major events, fix
it on EU, and take it down afterwards. Despite its low height, it appears to
outperform the new dipole at 70’ that I put up last week, and it helps me do
a little EU running on 15 and 20.

I don’t have much to add to the comments about conditions. 15 was very good,
if not quite excellent, during the daytime. 20 never seemed to open completely
to Europe and it was only because the band was open many more hours that my Q
total on 20 surpassed what I had on 15. Realizing that the average point
value of my 20 meter contacts was a lot higher than my low band contacts, I
stayed there longer than last year, but I may have missed a few EU mults on 80
and 40 as a consequence. I really need to get SO2R set up to help solve this
problem.

One of the more interesting contacts was the one on 15 meters with 8N3HQ at
1301Z. I worked three or four other JA stations on 15 in the more “normal”
2200Z hour, but they were apparently just the big stations like JR1AIB.
Conditions were not good enough for the 100 watt dipole/tribander crowd in JA
to make it into W8 land. I never heard a single JA on 20 and the few I heard
on 40 were so fluttery that the west coast was having trouble working them, so
I didn’t even bother calling. But NZ and VK were booming in and I managed to
work both on four bands, a first for me. A welcome trend I noticed this year is
increased activity from SA. Thanks to WH6M, Hawaii was not hard to work, but I
never heard a single KL7. A final highlight of this year’s contest was being
called by EI and PY on 160.

As many have pointed out, the ops at NU1AW/9 and W1AW/7 did a great job. They
were loud and available throughout the contest. I worked the former on six
bands (along with VE1RGB and KZ5D) but somehow missed W1AW/7 on 10.

Last year, my final score was higher than my claimed score, so evidently
Win-test slightly miscalculates IARU scores. I hope the same thing happens
this year!

Win-test also says that 64% of my contacts were with NA and only 27% with EU.
I’m sure this is not a mistake. Such is life as a peanut whistle in Ohio.

Thanks to everyone and I hope to see you next time.

It was expected the operation will be challenging: HF condx to be degraded by
X-Flare, big competition within the MIX class, bad meteo-weather predictions in
DL, my first SOAB in IARU HFC, my second in a row and the first time true SO2R
(with no assistance).

In short: it was a big-time event despite awful local problem with
rain-statics. Our station is next to the MB production lines and a 380 kV power
line is just ~100 m away from the towers. The rainfall generated an extremely
high noise level, present at most of the contest time. Only in 4 of 24 hours I
was able to get QSO-rates higher than 100 ))).

Experiencing the (true) SO2R techniques was the definitive highlight. Many
thanks Win DK9IP for the station setup and Ivan OE1DIA, Braco OE1EMS, my son
Immano (14) and the rest of my family for their friendly support.

I would feel much better now if I would know to have getting the most out of
the Daimler Sportgemeinschaft Stern station. But I did not. Limited by
meteorology. Otherwise quite a few amazing top-scores of my friends appeared
despite challenging propagation conditions. Congratulations!

Many thanks to all for calling and sorry if I was deaf.

Great time, tried to move as much stations as much as I could but wasnt too
succesful.
Certainly trying to add mults on the lower bands from down here was a
challenge
the low bands terribly noisy and not many signals coming thru.

Hi bands we so-so with Japan simply not coming thru. This is a contest with
lots of fun you can operate both modes, do so2r running on cw but multing on
phone and that is fantastic, I sure wished we had more stations on this area
that would come out as HQ's and certainly more activity from the Americas, that
way we can compete on mult totals with Europe.The scores really get big at
higher mult totals.

congrats to all of the superb european operators, I must say that with so much
increased participation in this contest the spirit of courtesy and honest
competition was very evident.

Cu in WAEDC!

Congratulation to all HQ Teams working on CW perfactly with good speed.
Hope next year during IARU contest, the weather will be better and let me work
more hours.

Conditions were pretty good in the beginning but then quickly deteriorated
towards the night and were rather poor the second day.

Had a perfect SO2R setup - thanks a bunch, ES5TV - with practically equal
antennas and virtually no inter-station interference, so the mediocre
multiplier count is all about the operator being lazy. By just counting the
HQ's that I worked there was a realistic potential of another 50+ HQ mults,
including some really easy ones. Then there were probably a number of HQ's I
missed completely. A dozen or so more zone/R1/R2/R3/AC mults were possible as
well. I guess at some point I just lost the discipline and got carried away
enjoying the decent rates too much.

Overall made 432 2nd radio contacts out of total 3374, which makes slightly
less than 15%. The target for next time is in the range of 20-25%.

Enjoyed the CW runs very much but had to force myself to go to SSB every now
and then. On a few occasions the CW pile-ups felt like practicing on Morse
Runner with a few callers and some going quite fast. Feel free to crank up the
speed even more next time, guys ;-)

73's and thanks to all for the QSO's!

2014 WRTC test site

We were one of 14 stations operating in IARU WRTC-style in preparation for
WRTC-2014. See http://konecc.wix.com/2012-wrtc-k1zd for pictures.

Ops: Dave K1ZZ, Rich K1CC, Linda KA1ZD (Dave's wife). Linda operated 15
phone for an hour and a half Saturday morning.

We operated using WRTC rules (M/2 setup) with DXCC countries instead of zones.
No internet, no DX Cluster, no super-check-partial, no second VFO.

Station:

• K3 + IC-756ProIII
• Cycle 24 TX38 tribander @ 40’
• Inv-V’s for 40 & 80 @ 38’
• INRAD triplexer with INRAD bandpass filters
• N1MM Logger with WRTC scoring
• 6x2 manual switching

K1ZZ and KA1ZD operated the K3, K1CC on the ProIII. Band isolation was
perfect, absolutely no interstation interference. Dave ended up doing a lot
of 15, I did more 20 and 10, at night he did most of the 40, I did 80. There
was no real operating plan, we just changed bands and modes as needed. It was
great fun operating, with no Internet distraction and no operating aids, just
old-school skills at finding multipliers, catching openings and maximizing
rate.

The operating site was in the corner of a town-owned recreational area in
Wrentham, MA. It was a very low noise location and very accessible for a
Field Day style setup. I was looking forward to this "back to the roots"
experience of operating, though with some apprehension about our ability to
maintain a frequency and be heard through the European QRM. The first 8
hours were exactly that. The Europeans had a lot of short skip and breaking
through the wall of QRM required multiple calls and 100% S&P'ing. Signals
were low angle and our puny antenna and low power just didn't cut it. Once 20
opened at 20Z (the afternoon opening), the signals got loud and stable and our
low tribander suddenly kicked in. At that point the rates jumped up and we
could actually call CQ and be heard.

We worked a JA on 20 and 15 in the first hour, heard JA's on 40 but not much
else over the pole all weekend. We anticipated the solar flare to disrupt
things at any moment but that didn't happen until 6-7 hours before the end of
the contest when all we could work was US stations. At 0730Z we were both
getting very tired, considering we spent all day Friday putting up the tent,
antennas and setting up the station and hadn't taken any breaks. We were also
running low on gas in the generator so we shut everything down and went to our
cars to take a short nap (no alarm clock!). An hour and a half later I woke
up in daylight, cold and shivering. We probably didn't miss much, it was just
US stations until the end of the contest.

The low bands were surprisingly good and very quiet. We got to 80 early and
had no trouble working all the Europeans with our 100W and 38 ft inv-V’s --
welcome to New England!

Thanks to all the guys from the WRTC Committee for this huge undertaking and
Igor N1YX and his support team in getting the antennas and tents up on Friday
and tearing down on Sunday. We managed to avoid thunderstorms and rain and
we survived the high 80's temperatures and humidity in the tent. Also thanks
to Jay W1UJ at the WRTC site across the street who helped us network our
computers on Friday night.

A pleasant surprise that the predicted CME arrived late. I was on 40 meters
Sunday morning and after working a couple of ZL's and a VK the band
disappeaared. That was with only one hour to go. Thanks to all.

I entered the IARU contest in a "light mode" because both my 3 el. Yagi and the
LF vertical are currently down for maintenance and my "real" contest shack is
still in construction. So all I had was a TS-480 and two wire antennas, a Vee
2x54m at about 13m, fed with open wire, balun and coax to the tuner, and a
Carolina Windom style OCF about 10m up. 90% of the contacts on all bands were
made with the Vee antenna the performance of which was a pleasant surprise from
80m up.

I started late but continued to operate throughout the night except for 2 hour
sleep in the morning for a total of 21.5 hours at the key.
And I mean the key because I enjoyed keying with the paddle throughout the
contest.

Condx seemed good 80-15m.
10m was disappointing, just a PY, LU and a few EU short skip QSOs. And heard
VU2BGS on Sunday who could not hear me.
160m was a struggle with the low wires that was sending all the energy to the
heavens so after working some mults I soon went back to 80m.
About 75% of the QSOs were made in S&P but I had a few good runs too although
nothing special, max. rate being 81.
Both 80 and 40m were in good shape allowing me work quite a few W/VE and also a
couple of SA stations. On 80m I could not get further than the East coast,
although heard W5 and spent quite a time trying to reach NU1AW/9 on 80 but only
once got a "QRZ?".

I had good fun and enjoyed the contest thorougly with the simple set up.
Thanks every one for the QSOs. 73 and see you in the next contest.

At the onset started on 40...should have been 15 in retrospect...when I hit 15
it was ifficult to beat the pileups so did some running with USA
stations(stupid)...thought this might be due to solar eruptions,little did I
realize that woould hit during the last 4 or 5 hours...the EU guys were just
working EU, was hard to bust thru...impossible when a Mid. East station was
running Eu.
Had fun for the next 15 hours until either the solar eruption hit or I worked
40 out....., 80 and 160 very noisy, so did not spend anytime there...congrats
to our In State Rival N8OO on fantastic score....God willing will be in
Greenland next year for this one..73/Pat...still do not know time of arrival
of SRE...until next year..Moi

A new competition organized by IARU, we came prepared us to look for a score
different to what was done last year, but ....

We arrived very late on Friday night with a trip complicated as we were
carrying the elements for a new antenna for 20 meters, we could not put
together, to finish the stack configuration we have designed, in addition, upon
arrival we found the big news, there was power outage lasted several hours and
only about 7 hours before the contest was restored, the values were highly
fluctuating voltage between 174-192 V varying continuously in the best of the
line (we have three phase), this situation persisted and caused the automatic
linear (Alpha 87 A) will not work well, and we could not achieve a good power,
500-800 W in the best opportunity, was extinguished before any minor
requirement or any variation greater than 5 V, we had about 20-25 breaks per
hour with the results of long delays for a new start, with consequent lack of
power. The situation forced us to change strategy consistently, the percentage
of the operation with only the power of the equipment was higher than HP,
approximately were operated about 21hs with this problem, despite the
achievements that improve the previous year.

Congratulate the RCA was present as HQ. The team of LT1F that the new rules set
a new record for LU, and to Jesus LU5FC for the score in SO-HP.

Thanks to the boys LU7HW and LU1HLH for visit us!

Sorry for the lack of the breakdown - will update soon...

Drove up to Norfolk from Essex on Saturday morning getting there for 10am. I
had a very busy week at work, so was quite exhausted. But I wanted to put
energy in to this one as have been looking forward to it for a long time. My
wife Gemma 2E0WPX and our daughter Rebecca put up with me doing these events
and I could not wish for more understanding! :)

Had a blast in this contest from the G3LDI station in Norfolk. Roger was an
amazing host to me, keeping me well fed and watered. I did not need to leave
the chair apart from calls of nature!

Started on 15m with some nice Asian mults. Switched between the high bands
until 22:00z at which point decended to 40m. This band had the least effective
antenna of the station, but still worked quite well. It is a 20m Rhombic, which
loads on 40m. Struggled on 80m cw as the dipole resonated at 3730, so had to run
in the high part of the cw band segment at a high swr. Had a problem with the
amp. It ran fine on cw, but after 5 mins of SSB it would trip and take about 2
mins to reset. This seemed to becmoe a problem some time late evening on
Saturday. If overs were very short, it would last longer. Strange.
20m was nice, 15 good (best on 1st day). 10m was a bit disappointing, but
worked some good mults. I notice that my good friend Stewart GM3F (GM4APP Op)
has decent numbers on 10m - not in this part of the country! Had some very nice
runs on 20 to the states. Condx were noticably down on the Sunday as could be
seen by the sun numbers, but a high SFI kept it active enough to still be fun.

I just have to compliment my host for his cooking. A lovely fish lunch before
the contest started, and a superb chicken roast at the end. I apologise to him
for almost falling asleep at the table - it wasn't the food!

Many coffee's and water kept me going. Water is so important to keep hydrated,
so I came prepared with lots of bottles.

Here is a description of the station:
Rig: FT-2000
Mic: Heil Pro Plus with HC5
Antennas: 4 ele Steppir at 120ft, 20m full size Rhombic, dipole for 80m, loaded
tower for 160m.
Loggins s/w: N1MM

Thank you all for the QSOs. Contesting is just so much fun - every one is
different, and that's what keeps it so interesting.

I'm still rebuilding my station but wanted to check out what I had done so far
(it's been nearly two years since I had a HF QSO).
 
W1AW/7   Headquarters HP   8,318,2052012-07-17 15:39:11
(Note: The above score info is from the N1MM Score Summary window. A spot check
of zone counts show N1MM to be slightly generous, and minor scoring variations
were seen between N1MM versions as well. )

First of all, many thanks to Dave Sumner K1ZZ, ARRL CEO and trustee of the W1AW
license, for allowing the Arizona Outlaws Contest Club the opportunity to use
W1AW/7 this weekend. Being the only station in the world giving out the unique
ARRL multiplier made many of our members feel like they were on a major contest
expedition. Tnx Dave!

Planning for IARU HF began last August with the first step being chosing a
"AOCC W1AW/7 Committee". Internationally known contester Mike KC7V was chosen
to chair the Committee and Guff KS5A, John K7WP and Bob K8IA were chosen to
serve too.

This planning evolved into 12 "primary stations", all over the state, being
configured for this event. Each station would be responsible for a band-mode.
These stations, for the mostpart, represented the better equipped contest
stations in AOCC. Primary station owners included, N7CW, K7KR, AB7E, K8IA,
N7DD, W8AEF, K7FA, N6SS, N7RT, AA7A, N6VR and N5IA.

(Unfortunately, Bud N7CW had to cancel on Friday night to be with his dad who
had just been taken to the hospital. Bud reported yesterday that his dad is
doing well and scheduled to go home.)

A number of "secondary/standby stations" were also assigned in case we had
weather or equipment issues at the primary stations. Mid-July in Arizona is
monsoon time, with historical instances of heavy rains, high winds and long
periods of lightning.

In fact, of the last four IARU HF efforts here at K8IA/N7AT, three of them were
subtantially curtailed due to closeby lightning storms. In 2011, for example,
two lightning storms hit after 0200Z and we lost the remaining ten hours.
Summertime in AZ is no time for a major contest!

The "secondary/standby" group included W6XI, KY7M, AA7V, KF7E and K7WP.

Each of the primary station owners agreed to open up their homes to other
members. This was a great gesture by all. In addition, it was strongly
communicated to the membership that this was a club event and any contest skill
set would be welcome. The focus was on AOCC member involvement and not on
score.

We ended up with 38 members operating at W1AW/7 locations, with band-operators
as follows;

10M CW = AA7V, K8IA
10M SSB = K7KR, N4TLO, N7AZ, N7RQ

15M CW = AB7E, K8IA
15M SSB = N7DD, KE2VB, W8TK, KF0X

20M CW = W8AEF, KC7V, K6WSC, NI7R
20M SSB = K7FA, W7ZR, K7LY, WA7LNW, W4LSC, KD6GHX, KY7M

40M CW = N6SS, KS5A, W6XI
40M SSB = N7RT, NA2U, K7JQ, W2AJW, KE7DX

80 CW = AA7A, KY7M
80 SSB = N6VR, N6KZ

160 CW&SSB = N5IA, W5CF, WA5Y, WD5COV, NI5L

In short, we all had a ball! Even with the CME hitting about 1830Z and really
messing things up, and the predicted severe monsoon stroms rearing their ugly
head during the morning and evening, and closing down several primary stations,
the enthusiasm was always there.

Some of our ops live in HOA areas and were in heaven this weekend operating a
W1AW/7 locale. Imagine yourself, like one of our members, having a 40m dipole
at 56" high (that is INCHES) and now sitting at the fine station of N7RT using
a full sized 40m 4 el yagi at 130 feet! Or one of our contest newbie members,
in only his first or second contest, on 20m ssb at the K7FA station, wondering
if he should use the 6 el 20m monbander at 165', or the TH7 at 80' or the 4 el
monobander at 52'. What a rush!

Of course, some of our ops are veteran contesters as you an see by the
recognizable callsigns above. They, too, had a world of contest fun.

Thanks again K1ZZ and thanks to all of those who worked us on as many bands as
possible.

See you all in the Fall contest season. Of course, signing a "normal" callsign
and giving out a common multiplier won't be as nearly as much fun as W1AW/7
was. We've been spoiled now.

A favorite contest for us. Even though we were one of the WRTC2014 Station Demo
sites we decided early on to do a straight up Multi-Single so our score would
count for the IARU contest. This is essentially a field day set up. The weather
was stellar all weekend albeit a bit warm for us wimpy New Englander's.

N1IW got us off to a good start Saturday morning. 15M was the money band. Band
conditions were exceptionally quiet all weekend, even 80M. Polar paths were
somewhat shutdown. W1STT did the bulk of the Sideband Qs while I did the
overnight 20Q/hr stint ending with my personal nemesis, those deep Pacific
mults that are so damn loud but I never manage to work. At least I got to
witness the spectacular moon rise at 4:00 AM local.

In the last hour 20M never really opened for us so we were back to 40M to close
it out.

Our thanks go to the WRTC 2014 organizing committee (www.wrtc2014.org)for
arranging this opportunity and K2TE and his "Beam Team" members that deployed
the antenna for us to use over the weekend.

Q's were down slightly from last year, but mults were up significantly. Score
was up over 30%, so can't complain.

Even at only 40 feet up, the 6 element 20 meter OWA worked well into Europe.
Everyone in its beamwidth was loud and easy to copy, but it is currently bolted
down and not moveable, so once propagation shifted, it became a liability. 15
meter was also locked down to EU, and it to worked well, when propagation
favored NE. Hope to have them, and their twins all up and rotating for contest
season this fall.

80 and 160 dipoles are still flat top, and K9AY loop is down, so low bands
weren't very productive. Sunday AM, the noise on 80 and 160 went to >20db over
S-9. Not sure if that was the solar flare or something else. I should have
taken time to repair the K9AY!

Overall, it was a fun contest. See you in the next one.

Sort of old time -style operation. Erecting one tower on Friday, continuing
antenna job on Saturday and starting to put stations together. One station was
even in tent, almost like in WRTC Moscow (as the WC-facilities...). Yet we had
everything running about two minutes before start.

We aired 2 - 6 stations simultaniously depending on manning and propagation.
Stations located on one hill made it quite impossible to do CW and SSB on same
band at same time. We tried a little anyway.

Not so huge score, but huge fun we had! Thanks: for the team; for all for QSOs
and for SRAL arranging us the HQ-call.

Cannot complain - increased mult count and total score by 10% from last year.
However, after the last major event from EB8AH have to admit once again, that
the 3 key facors of success remain unchanged. These are: the location, the
location and the location.

Thanks for the Q's!

No SO2R hardware on this contest and also I have not 160 antenna.

I'm happy with the result and I think SO2R antenna and 160 the result would
have been much better.

It was a very interesting contest.

Too little time to prepare for this one. I attended the CTU Finland before the
contest and came back home to operate. Due to some equipment problems missed
the first hour of the contest and the motivation to start the contest was very
low so I hooked up with the DX cluster for fun although that placed me in the
M/S category. I was supposed to operate with a new amplifier but due to time
constraints had to use the old AL-80A instead. Slept too much in the morning
and finally managed to squeeze in some 18 hours of operating. The effects of
the CME were noticed in the evening. Sunday was almost like an EU QSO party.
Luckily we had some short skip on 20m because 15m or 10m were very poor.

Thanks for the QSOs!

After two years the team has returned to the old mountaintop QTH. The noise from
the government comm site was still there waiting for us. :( Good (in HA it means
unhealthy) food, good company and in the first part we even had good condx.
Summer contests are fun.

Many thanks to Carlos, CT3FQ for share with us his fine station on the north
part of the island for this MS effort.
We spent several weekends getting things ready and we know that the low band
antennas must be connected manually late in the evening because there are not
enough plugs on the switcher, hi hi. Late in the night the switcher doesn’t
switch anymore and we spend some time troubleshooting to discover that the
power plug had a malfunction.
We had low expectations in terms of final score, given the X1 flare, and also
because the lack of Mult-station. But even so, we fell short regarding the
multiplier numbers, we will have to study a better way to work them especially
with those new restrictive band change rules.
The propagation wasn't so bad anyway but the conditions were varying much.
A windstorm blew through our area during all contest period taking away some
elements of the home made 20m monoband, we must get better aluminum…
The night doesn’t go well because a lack of sleep, it was impossible to stay
awake and the Q’s numbers on the lower bands are not good at all.
We had a new member on the Team with us, my son Daniel, CR9ABH, he is 12 years
old and, for our surprise, with no practice what so ever on the air, he achieve
to manage nice rates on the pile-ups! More important, he is willing to come
back!
Thanks to all for the QSOs.
On behalf of the CT3Team,

My first IARU HF Chamionship in 30 yrs of contesting!

Sorry I operated mainly CW. Propagation was not so bad as expected, expecially
the first 12 hours. I QSYed too late on 40 meters when prop was still going on
on 15 (and on 10!). Lost asian mults on 40.

Heard VA7ST - as well other west coast rocky mountains stations - on 10 meters
but he/they wasn't/weren't able to copy me against the south american signals
(It was back scatter but signal was clear here). Please remember to listen for
southern EU signal when prop seems to be over on 10 meters beaming antennas
further south than to direct path.

I decided to partecipate as SOMIXED HP when I knew my friend Matt IZ3EYZ was
not able to work superb station IR4X on saturday morning. But an other
superstation was active in my EU Rank area for WRTC qualification. It was DR1A
operated by "super YL" Sandy, DL1QQ -.

My station is not comparable to DR1A but my QTH is better...so the competition
was head to head. I operated mostly on higher band than Sandy and mostly on CW
(mistake... as rates on SSB are faster).

Also my bad skill using SO2R environment played in favor of Sandy. I operated
abt 10% of time my second radio and lost a lot of time S&P looking for mults.

Also, SH5 says more of 2 hours breaktime :-( !!!

Nowadays, as Jose CT1BOH says, "If you are not calling and if you are not
S&Ping at the same time.... you are loosing!". So it was!

Congratulations to Sandy DL1QQ for her partecipation. I think WRTC 2014 is over
for me.

I enjoyed very much the contest and I thank you very much for the QSOs.
Congratulations also to my friends IO9HQ (IO0HQ) from Mount Arcibessi for their
signal on 10 meters SSB (great signal).

CU in next contests!

members of E7DX team decide to work contest just for fun with good company and
"kotlic" and grill for 24 hours ;) E77C and E78DX joined team first time.

No antenna on 160, 80 or 10. Beam not controllable on 40 - pointing North West
during the contest.
Some good conditions at time - getting into South and Central America was a
highlight.
(LU, PY, HC, TI, CO, YV and XE were some of the better ones for me.)
Lots of QRN on 40 and on audio when some of the guys at the Club were shifting
a repeater on the mezzanine floor right above my head!
Would love to do the contest again by myself again, hopefully with better
equipment.

Had fun and managed to grab some nice QSOs on 10m as well. I took part only few
time and coul not operate more unfortunately. Next year I will try to be more
active. Congratulations to all the HQ stations, really heard many of them
active.

Thanks to all of you that pulled out my little signal from the noise :)

A part-time shakedown cruise from my new QTH near Steelville, MO - very, very
pleased with the results from simple antennas (HF2V and Bravo-7) and low power
(IC-7000). Took time off for floating around in a nearby river through the
heat of the afternoon and then quit when I got sleepy, hi. Even with the poor
conditions, some bands were pretty good some of the time and it was
particularly fun to work out into the Pacific and Oceania on 40 meters in the
morning - I guess I'd have to say 40 was the most fun this time out. 73, Ward

Highly enjoyable event. I used a simple set-up with a single radio (K3) and had
to finish an hour early so I could pack, and drive to the airport! Shame as I
could have easily had a score of 4+Mil.

I am told that I was significantly weaker than most of the other 5B stations!

Some great rates with a few over 200 and best hour of 255.

Another great event at The Farm!

This was W0AIH's 2nd time as an HQ Station. In 1999 we were W1AW/9. It is an
honor to be able to have done both. One of the few stations that have hosted
both HQ stations.

As big as W0AIH is, it is not possible to operate all bands and modes from
there. So the 4 other station in western Wisconsin were tapped to take some of
the bands. The bulk of the operation was at W0AIH, with K9OW KA9FOX N0IJ and
WD9HFT taking a band. Here is the breakdown of stations:

Station Band/modes
W0AIH 10CW 15CW 20PH 40CW 80PH 160CW/160PH
K9OW 40PH
KA9FOX 15PH
N0IJ 20CW 80CW
WD9HFT 10PH

Operators at W0AIH:
W0AIH, K0TG, K9NW, K0TI, NE9U, W0UC, KB9S, W0GJ, K0MD, KG2A, K9MU, AC0W,
NM7X

Operators at K9OW:

Operators at WD9HFT:
WD9HFT, NM7X, NE9U

You may notice that some of the ops are noted at different stations as they
moved form one to another during the event.

Lots of great talent at all stations facing challenging solar conditions.
Everyone was watching the forecasts for the arrival of the predicted CME event.
It did not wipe things out at least, but sure made it challenging.

Some of our talent included the VP5H team of Glenn W0GJ and Scott K0MD. Those
two guys were on 20 SSB all weekend just pounding on the band. I think Glenn
really liked the Rhombic antennas. :) Are you putting some up at the new QTH
now?? 20 meters is up the hill from the main building (Main building is AKA
the chalet) and is a small are for two ops. Maybe intimate it the word. :)
They were the lucky ones there. They had Air Conditioning where we did not at
the chalet. Our window unit was out of service. It probably would not stand
much of a a chance of keeping up with all the amps blazing. We had a lot of air
moving in the chalet. If there was a fan, it was in use there.

Of course the operation does not come without some technical headaches. Before
the contest on Friday, Paul was working on one of the 15 meter beam rotors at
the top of the tower. Until he was chased down by weather that evening. But he
was back at it in the morning to finish the job. Then when it was time to get
rolling on 160 we discovered amplifier troubles. So Paul was able to press
another Alpha into service. They had antenna troubles over at WD9HFT as they
discovered that evening, so the 160 SSB operations were moved to The Farm. So
our 160 operations were probably a bit lighter than planned.

N0IJ, KA9FOX and N9ISN on behalf of K9OW did their own writeups. They are
below.


A great time had by all!!!

*****************

*** NU1AW/9 @ N0IJ/9 ***

A big thanks to full timers, N0IM and AF9T for help in making this take
place. Also, Doug, AA0AW, put in a good shift during the day which gave
us all a chance to recharge for the night work.

From my competitive sailing days in the past I am reminded of the comment
about owning a sailboat in Duluth. "You can have just as much fun standing
in a cold shower tearing up $50 bills". Somehow that related well to many
times in this contest on the two bands we worked--20 cw and 80 cw.

The beginning was fantastic--at least on 20! Thanks to a group of
TCDXA/MWA folks who did look us up on 80. 13 whole QSO's in the morning
on 80. We did have about 270 after two hours overall--a few EU, a few JA's,
and a whole bunch of NA. I set things up as a M/2 so our results on both
rigs and bands were consolidated.

Everything on both bands came in bunches--either it was pretty good, or
really washed out. Several times ops took a quick peek at 15 and wanted
to go, but 20 was our band! Mid morning sounded more like mid afternoon.
After 80 was abandoned, the 2nd rig switched to S/P on 20 with good
results--little noisy for the run station at times, but better than
nothing. When the antennas were thoughtfully aligned, the interference was
minimal outside of 10 Khz or so. Good ol' K3's. We had hoped for steady
running into EU and that just didn't happen--mostly watery sigs even from the
big guys.

We obviously weren't alone, as we had little trouble working anything we
could hear--just not much there. Surely, no 2nd and 3rd tier stations! Some
JA's in the pm, but nothing like we hoped. How sad was it to see all the
California spots for juicy Asian mults that required the polar path that
just wasn't there for us?

I jumped to 80 just before 8 pm local and picked up east coast types until
about sunset when EU started calling in. I had tried to S/P a few of
these guys with no luck--static crashes were pretty loud. Suddenly, I
had a bunch of them calling me. It was fun but challenging picking them out
of the static. I could copy most better on the 4 Square than I could with
Beverages. We seemed to be spotted quite a bit (thanks to a few MWAers
for some of that), and it made a huge difference--especially with these EU on
80. An hour or so after sunset, most of the EU disappeared, sadly, save the
occasional. During the entire evening, the 20 meter station was almost
exclusively working NA stations.

John took over 80 and I banged away on the F1 key on 20, using the 2nd VFO
to keep the band map clean. There was little concern about keeping the
run fq, as the well known call certainly had some effect. Thank goodness a
bunch of VK/ZL guys were on 20 (probably around 25) or it really would
have been lonely. It got harder and harder as the night moved on, until
about
3:30 we had a stretch of 20 minutes with zero q's and Dick and I tossed in
the
towel for a couple hours, hoping that the finishing two hours would be
productive. Hah! With the A at 25 and K at 8?, not much chance of that.

The only band we could hear anything on was 40, and then, not much!

We were back at it around 5 local, and made a total of 7 qso's until 6:15
when we called it! Nice part was that Dick worked two VK's in Zone 55 and

59 on 80 both for mults! Tried to get W0ERP a couple of times but he
couldn't hear us! We were shooting for 1500 q's total, and actually made
1503.

We literally sweated this one out! My station is planted in the
mechanical room of the cabin--no windows. I had two good sized fans
going, but it actually got to 91 degrees in there around 2 a.m.! We even
backed the power down some to try and reduce (and save) amp heat. Finally got
some outside cooler air in there, but it was still about 85 when we quit.

Thanks to Paul, who's fantastic reputation for putting things like this
together, made this all possible. Conditions pretty much stunk, but was
it worth it?--you betcha.

Final tally:
80: 377 Q's, 17 HQ, 19 zones--total mults 36
20: 1126 Q's, 39 HQ, 32 zones--total mults 71

*************

*** NU1AW/9 @ KA9FOX ***

Long story... if you want the quick results, scroll to the bottom. :-)

The not-so-mighty KA9FOX station was selected to take 15 SSB for IARU as
part of NU1AW/9. With a single tri-bander @ 95 feet, and a low 40 meter
dipole being the only two somewhat resonant antennas in the arsenal, I was
more than concerned that the results would be embarrassing, especially
working DX. Trying to find a better station that was in Wisconsin, in Zone
7, proved to be challenging (most of the state is in Zone 8 and the rules
require all stations to be in the same zone). And since we were all told
that the CME was going to hit us about an hour into the contest and ruin
it, I figured I had nothing to lose anyway... so off we went...

I did not have much time to get the station ready for the contest, and for
guest operators. First order of business was trying to find a working
voice keyer. Yes, the not-so-mighty KA9FOX station did not have a voice
keyer. I mainly do Sprint contests, which don't require a lot of CQing,
otherwise I have just been getting on for a few hours here and there in
most contests, or guest operating elsewhere. I had bought a Microham SO2R
box (the MK2R+) several months ago, which has a built-in DVK, but had never
implemented it. Good reason to get that done now! Thanks to great
implementation guides for N1MM on Microham's site, I got that working late
last week and it performed perfectly. N1MM is able to control it for
recording messages on the fly, and of course playing them automatically as
needed. Thanks to K9CT for some advice on fixing a record-on-the-fly
problem.

I have had a problem in my station on HF with an intermittent "20db
attenuator" being thrown in line. Received signals seem to be downgraded
at times. I was very concerned this intermittent problem would haunt us
this weekend. So, on Friday night around 1030pm (good time to troubleshoot
for a Saturday morning contest, right??) I tuned 15 meters and it was
dead... so I plopped in the middle of the band, fired up the voice keyer on
repeat mode, fired up the amplifier, and started repeating some test
messages (with my callsign) over and over, to see if I could get the
problem to appear. While I was testing, I had some callers come out of
nowhere... including a QRP ZL mobile station, a VK, a KH6, and the surprise
of them all, a 5B4, shortpath! Anyway, the problem DID appear and I was
able to narrow down to a bad coax input on the Array Solutions Six-Pak.
Switched the main radio to "input B" and it was rock solid for the whole
contest.

Next step was to get N1MM upgraded... I was on version 10, and the latest
is 12. Painless upgrade, thanks to N1MM's great documentation. With the
station in good shape, it was time to get some sleep.. around Midnight I
guess. Got up at 5am, ate breakfast and fired up the station... I had the
first shift of 7am-1pm.

Contest started really slow... only 4 QSOs in the first 10 minutes or so,
but finished the first hour with 90. Things really picked up the next few
hours. Best hour of the contest was had during the 14z-15z hour, with 184
in the log. Where was this disastrous CME??? After the morning rush it
was slow but steady. Had some interesting callers during the 16z hour
(11am local), including some HS and YB and JA. I'm told this is fairly
common occurrence, but I don't get on enough I guess, as it caught me by
surprise. I worked the sub-VFO on my FT-1000MP really hard, working as many
of the bandmap spots as possible, then just tuning in between CQs when I
ran out of spots to work.

Later Mike K9NW, Al N9ISN and Ryan KB9OWD all arrived for their shifts,
then I took the night shift between Midnight and 7am. That was mostly a
bust, especially this morning, when only 2 stations were worked from 5am to
7am. Interestingly, about 2am, K5ZD/1 called in and he was 20 over 9. The
band was definitely open to the east coast, but nobody awake to work us, I
guess. Contest ended at 7am... I sent the logs to KB9S and went right to
bed soon after... woke up at Noon!

Unlike John N0IJ, we did not have an A/C problem. In fact, I had cooled
the room down too much, thinking the amp would overheat us, and had to
RAISE the room temperature. Sorry to rub it in. :-)

FINAL RESULTS: 15 SSB @ KA9FOX (NU1AW/9)

QSOs: 1303 (including dupes)
Zones: 37
HQs: 44

In the end, the station performed OK, although surely we left a lot of DX
on the table... there just had to be another layer of stations that we just
were not reaching with my small system. But we had a LOT of fun, and I was
forced to implement some much needed station improvements (and cleaning!)
in the process (bonus!)

I want to send a BIG thanks to Paul W0AIH for including me in this very
special event (what an honor!)... to KB9S for all his preparation work at
the farm, and now the task of combining all the logs from different logging
programs into a single log to score and submit... and to N9ISN for putting
together the operating schedule for both KA9FOX (15 SSB) and K9OW (40 SSB)
and his work in preparing K9OW for this operation (dvk, laptop, pre-contest
visit, etc.)... oh, and to my lovely XYL for the weekend pass. :-)

**************

*** NU1AW/9 @ K9OW ***

The original plan for 40 SSB and 80 CW was to have both at Bill Pike's fine
K9OW station SE of La Crosse. Unfortunately Bill's station wasn't able to
be set up for two stations. In fact, there was going to be some work to get
it set up for contesting with one station. Bill is a Honor Roll DXer and
his station is set up for single op DXing. K3 and Alpha amp, 1/4 wave 4
Square on 40m.... all good stuff to build on. Working with John, N0IJ, we
reset the band/modes plans for the 'satellite' stations for NU1AW so that
John and Bill's stations could excel on their strengths. But with the
operator lists already set in stone, we had to find another world class
station in the La Crosse area to fill in 15 SSB so that the operator
schedules could be worked out between the two stations. Thanks for Scott,
KA9FOX, he accepted the challenge and became our 15 SSB. Working out a
schedule between the two stations 45 minutes apart was now possible with 4
operators. Thanks Scott!! His station was more than enough to handle the
task. In fact, his final score was the best of any of the band/mode
stations for NU1AW/9! And watching him handle SO2V was a sight to behold. A
master shredding the band with his FT1000MP! Nothing was left on the table.

Setting up Bill's station was going to be almost a field day operation.
Bill has no computer control of his station. So I had to get a laptop
computer configured and set up with a K3 (which I don't own) and N1MM all
sight unseen. I got N1MM working with a Rigblaster and laptop at home with
my Yaesu FT 5000 so it was hoping it was to be easy plug and play (with
microphone jumper changes in the Rigblaster) to the K3/computer. Even with
that, I left home at 3am for a 2 1/2 hour drive to make it to Bill's with
enough time to get the station set up and tested by 7am start time.

The only technical glitch was the DVK in N1MM, which worked fine at home
with my FT 5000, was not working with the K3. The record on the fly feature
of N1MM would produce horrible distorted recordings for the DVK, rendering
it useless. We had to go 'raw' (as Ryan KB9OWD put it). The K3 wasn't very
fast updating VFO information to N1MM either. I think it was the
USB<>serial interface but at least that *was* working. A pleasant surprise
was that I found out that Bill had fiber internet!! I was expecting nothing
out in Amish country. Schwing!!

At 7am start we just had a severe thunderstorm roll though with heavy
lightning. Static! Ugh! Started out slow but steady with a run of VK's but
the rate was at a snails pace. By 8am, I knew it was going to be a slow day
when it seemed everyone who called was 'I am not in the contest but I heard
you calling, what do you need?' and explaining the whole 'IARU' multiplier
thing to those who *were* in the contest.

Ryan, KB9OWD and myself were swapping 3 hour shifts but neither of us were
having any rate. After 9 hours in the contest and my 2nd shift, we were
sitting at 180's and only 8 mults. All of the Q's were zone 6, 7's and 8's
(and the early VK's) with lots of locals and W8's. Long stretches of time
when no Q's were logged was common. In fact, the whole band was shut down
for stretches of time. Curses the CME's!

I went to KA9FOX's for my shift there to find he was having the time of his
life. What was this? DX? Rates in the 100's?? So this was how the other
half lives, huh?

Mike, K9NW, joined our crew in the late afternoon to join in the slow slog
on 40 SSB after having huge run rates at KA9FOX's. The rate improved on 40
SSB slightly as it got dark but we never had the EU or AF runs. The polar
paths shut us down. We could hear them loudly but they never came back to
us. I got back to 40 SSB at 10pm and by 11pm I got a nice clear run
frequency about 7240 and had decent rates of our own for a few hours,
getting our 500th Q about 12:30am.

We got the DVK working after Mike got on at 1am by copying the /wav CQ
files from KA9FOX's N1MM. Worked great for the rest of the contest. But the
rates dropped dramatically the rest of the contest. No JA at all.

We were one of 13 or so test stations for the WRTC preparation by the Yankee
Clipper Contest Club. The planning and organization for this "field day" style
test was fantastic, and a tremendous amount of work was done by K1DG,
K1RX,K1KI, and countless others in YCCC leading up to the event.

Each of the 13 or so WRTC teams were assigned an operating location in the
NH/MA area, with each team having 3 leaders. For our team it was Beam Team
Captain (Tom, N9NC), a Site Team Captain (Wayne, KB1WXR), and an operating
captain (Ted, N9NB). We picked up our gear in Wayne's pick up truck at 8am on
Friday, at a central rental storage center--towers, generators, tent, water,
yagi and dipoles, cables -- it was all remarkably organized, we popped in,
loaded up, and off we drove for an hour to our site, filling the generator and
getting food provisions on the way. As soon as we left the storage unit, the
next team came to pick up their gear, and on it went all Friday morning....with
K1DG, K1KI and K1RX making sure the serial numbers and items were checked off as
each team departed to their site.

We arrived at our location at Ayre, MA (Ft. Devens) at 1030am, picking up the
key from Micha, the property manager who was quite kind and helpful-driving us
to the site a couple of miles away. Our operating site was on a 4400 acre
retired army base that had been transformed into a high tech park, golf course,
and property development zone. Our site was in a locked part of the acreage,
with many tall trees surrounding an undeveloped part of the property -- we were
given a key to lock the gate to the main road and saw no other humans during the
weekend, except for a stray bike rider who came by Saturday afternoon and
quickly scurried off when he saw the antennas, generator and caution tape that
surrounded our operating area. Our Site Captain Wayne took good care of the key
and kept the site secure and safe/clean the entire time.

We spent most all of the daylight hours on Friday erecting the contest station
and testing the generator/tent-- with the tower presenting the usual challenges
of unused, untested tower sections. The preparations for the whench/hoist and
base system were extremely well thought out, and we were able to identify
various parts of the set up that could be improved next year.

We were up and operating (and completely exhausted) at 9:30pm Friday, and were
especially tired since N9NC and N9NB had stayed up virtually all of the night
before taking apart N9NC's home station and loading his car with gear. We did
not yet have the computers networked when we ended our work day on Friday --
but were greatly relieved and received a terrific suprise when Stan K5GO (donor
of all the yagis from Cycle 24) joined us at the last minute Friday morning
(and, fortunately, brought his laptop). The 3 operators (N9NB, N9NC, K5GO)
checked into a local hotel and got 5 hours sleep, and KB1WXR (Wayne) and his
father in law Jon (whose call I forget -very sorry) arrived back at sunrise
Saturday to try and network our PCs. Unfortunately, with the exhaustion and
time pressure, we failed at both objectives: We were not able to network our
PCs, and we did not get our voice keyer working -- BUMMER! Nevertheless, we
operated true field day style, and had a terrific time.

Wayne KB1WXR and his father in law Jon were just recently licensed, and we gave
Wayne a shot at the microphone where he did a terrific job logging his first
contest QSOs.Wayne and Jon surprised us with subs and salads on Saturday night!
What a treat.


We had great help from Joe KM1P who was there with us Friday setting up the
tower, and also helping us tear down on Sunda, and also George W1EBI on tear
down.

All in all, it was a great time -- good fun doing field day style contesting
for a good cause -- the WRTC preparation. We came up with about 25 suggestions
for improving the operations for next year, and with 13 teams, there will be
excellent feedback, improvements, and testing of the signal strengths at all
the sites. Interestingly, YCCC had all stations beaming in particular
directions and different times of the contest, so that all stations could be
benchmarked and compared for signal strenghts around the world on different
bands.

Thanks everyone and especially YCCC for the fun, and the QSOs.

at 1430Z with 599 +20dB Signals.

The only sign of a solar disturbance I noticed was between 0730-0830Z 40M
signals were highly unintelligible, with auroral flutter and echos. 10M did
not perform well, but did manage a few AS / NA contacts. Doubled my QSO Count

Last year I had a chance to go back to my home town of Goshen,
IN to work this contest and had a grand old time from the club
station there. I was hoping to try it again this year from my
own QTH, but basically had to sit it out. My older daughter and
her husband purchased a new house
(new to them, it was built in 1768) in Weymouth, MA on the 9th
and I spent the weekend there helping them clean up, clean out
and doing a lot of yard work in all the brutal heat and humidity.
The 15th was also my birthday, the big 7-Oh. As much as I wanted
to do the contest, I wanted to help them too. I think I signed
up for that on a June night in 1980 when there wasn't anything
interesting on TV and my wife and I decided to provide our own
entertainment. It worked out well and we've all lived happily
ever since.

The little bit of operating I did was assisted and I wasn't
careful about the band change rule. I found one
violation, so this is a CHECKLOG. I don't recall actually ever
using the cluster data but I may have spotted a few stations.
I don't feel discriminated against by the rules. I'm fine.

QSO counts seemed high here on the 3830 reports but I didn't hear
much DX. Lots of stateside activity, however. I think it was an
EU contest and a NA contest. Two for one.

The next biggie for me is the CQ WW RTTY in September. My favorite
contest.

Equipment:
Venerable TS-430S w/ AT-250 running 100 watts

Comments:

I had set the K2/100 up the right before and it was ready to go on all bands. I
walk in at 1800z, and as soon as I got to switch antennas, I get a "not instd"
error with the antenna tuner. After fooling with it for about 10 minutes, I
could not get the antenna tuner to obey the commands of the K2. A few more
trials and I'm getting an INFO 080 error -- which K2 owners know means the main
microprocessor is having trouble communicating with the other microprocessors in
the rig.

30 minutes into this, I still haven't worked a contact. Time to go to plan B. I
swapped the cables out and got the Kenwood TS-430S on line. No computer control,
and the CW filters aren't nearly as nice, but it will do the job.

Spent almost 5 hours on the air, all S & P. It was hard trying to get through
to a few of the HQ stations. Lots of good activity on 15m. Very little out of
10m.

Need better antennas.

It was a very last minute effort, we decided to enter into the contest with 20m
and 40m antennas rotor broken, we tried before the contest to move antennas at
least towards NA but wind decided that antenna have to be for all the week end
looking South America... :(

15m was not so good as we hope, this time we had a small crew but for iaru was
enough.

Thanks for all the qso's and see you in the next one. We wish you a nice summer

test was fantastic, and a tremendous amount of work was done by K1DG,
K1RX,K1KI, and countless others in YCCC leading up to the event.

Each of the 13 or so WRTC teams were assigned an operating location in the
NH/MA area, with each team having 3 leaders. For our team it was Beam Team
Captain (Tom, N9NC), a Site Team Captain (Wayne, KB1WXR), and an operating
captain (Ted, N9NB). We picked up our gear in Wayne's pick up truck at 8am on
Friday, at a central rental storage center--towers, generators, tent, water,
yagi and dipoles, cables -- it was all remarkably organized, we popped in,
loaded up, and off we drove for an hour to our site, filling the generator and
getting food provisions on the way. As soon as we left the storage unit, the
next team came to pick up their gear, and on it went all Friday
morning....with
K1DG, K1KI and K1RX making sure the serial numbers and items were checked off
as
each team departed to their site.

We arrived at our location at Ayre, MA (Ft. Devens) at 1030am, picking up the
key from Micha, the property manager who was quite kind and helpful-driving us
to the site a couple of miles away. Our operating site was on a 4400 acre
retired army base that had been transformed into a high tech park, golf
course,
and property development zone. Our site was in a locked part of the acreage,
with many tall trees surrounding an undeveloped part of the property -- we
were
given a key to lock the gate to the main road and saw no other humans during
the
weekend, except for a stray bike rider who came by Saturday afternoon and
quickly scurried off when he saw the antennas, generator and caution tape that
surrounded our operating area. Our Site Captain Wayne took good care of the
key
and kept the site secure and safe/clean the entire time.

We spent most all of the daylight hours on Friday erecting the contest station
and testing the generator/tent-- with the tower presenting the usual
challenges
of unused, untested tower sections. The preparations for the whench/hoist and
base system were extremely well thought out, and we were able to identify
various parts of the set up that could be improved next year.

We were up and operating (and completely exhausted) at 9:30pm Friday, and were
especially tired since N9NC and N9NB had stayed up virtually all of the night
before taking apart N9NC's home station and loading his car with gear. We did
not yet have the computers networked when we ended our work day on Friday --
but were greatly relieved and received a terrific suprise when Stan K5GO
(donor
of all the yagis from Cycle 24) joined us at the last minute Friday morning
(and, fortunately, brought his laptop). The 3 operators (N9NB, N9NC, K5GO)
checked into a local hotel and got 5 hours sleep, and KB1WXR (Wayne) and his
father in law Jon (whose call I forget -very sorry) arrived back at sunrise
Saturday to try and network our PCs. Unfortunately, with the exhaustion and
time pressure, we failed at both objectives: We were not able to network our
PCs, and we did not get our voice keyer working -- BUMMER! Nevertheless, we
operated true field day style, and had a terrific time.

Wayne KB1WXR and his father in law Jon were just recently licensed, and we
gave
Wayne a shot at the microphone where he did a terrific job logging his first
contest QSOs.Wayne and Jon surprised us with subs and salads on Saturday
night!
What a treat.


We had great help from Joe KM1P who was there with us Friday setting up the
tower, and also helping us tear down on Sunda, and also George W1EBI on tear
down.

All in all, it was a great time -- good fun doing field day style contesting
for a good cause -- the WRTC preparation. We came up with about 25 suggestions
for improving the operations for next year, and with 13 teams, there will be
excellent feedback, improvements, and testing of the signal strengths at all
the sites. Interestingly, YCCC had all stations beaming in particular
directions and different times of the contest, so that all stations could be
benchmarked and compared for signal strenghts around the world on different
bands.

Thanks everyone and especially YCCC for the fun, and the QSOs.

Weird conditions. Fifteen was open to Europe, but the openings seemed marginal.
Ten meters was pretty slim pickens, but surprised me with a few Europeans late
in the afternoon Saturday. Overall my QSO rates weren't all that good except
for an amazing run of W's on 20SSB Saturday evening. I probably stayed there
too long at the cost of my multiplier total, but it was way too much fun to
pass up. Fourty was a big disappointment on Sunday morning, but eighty meters
surprised me with a decent run of JAs that blasted right through the summertime
QRN.

Hopefully, next time the sun will be more cooperative.

IARU is a great contest. Last years I've been involved in IOxHQ, this time I
tried a SOAB effort.
After a big eartquake in my area (north fo Modena city) who give us big
problems, I qsy to I4LEC hilltop to forget and have some fun.

I tried to keep high the rate when not running (often) switching from cw to
phone, from band to band, even using memories vfo a/b and keeping track of busy
stations using bandmap ctrl-enter and so on. To keep high rate on Wpx cw 2011
has been simple since I was assisted.
Just 3z hour has less than 60qso/h because of s/p on 160 and 80 to work mults.
I qsy vy early on 20-40-80m to s/p for more HQ as possible, this strategy seems
payed a lot.

Great rates on 20m ssb on the last 3 hours, last one has been the best one with
132qso! I had some good EU rate, I suppose, thanks to stack who let me beaming
from east to west.
On 160 I havn't z27 on the log but i've been surprised to have a loud call from
N1TA on cw, a bit later NB2T was incredibly loud on 160ssb, I spent 10 minutes
to call him but not even a ? ... on 160 low power is difficult :-)

Nice start on 15m but after 4 hours I got a problem. While turning the antenna
the coax broke.
It took me about 3 hours to fix it temporally during the rain. I ever wanted to
climb the tower with rubber boots..)
Good score of DH8BQA, but I prefer to play after the rules.

I want to thank Mark, K1RX and Webb for coming down from NH to fix my 15 and 20
meter antennas and rotators in late June in order to make it possible for me to
operate this contest. Although 40 and 80 were wires hanging out of trees more
vertical than horizontal, they at least let me get on the low bands and have
some fun.

I was extremely ill coming into this contest - In fact, in 10 days I will have
my Thyroid gland surgically removed, partly in an attempt to help save my eyes
from further deterioration and partly to spare my Liver from the effects of the
extremely dangerous toxic medicine that I am taking to control the auto-immune
Hyperthyroidism. Then, after it is out, I will be on replacement medicine for
the rest of my life and there are no guarantees that my eyes won't continue to
structurally worsen. Very serious stuff. You don't realize what the Thyroid
actually does until it is out of control. Answer - it affects EVERYTHING in
your body directly or indirectly!

So, with IARU coming up, I knew that I would operate, I just didn't know how
much or what it would be like.

12z
15 is LOADED with signals and some are strong. Without the loud line noise
pestilence that has been killing me for the past three years, I could hear
everyone clearly and when I found a good spot and it was "OFF TO THE RACES!"
Mostly Eu with smattering of JA. HS0AC calls in at 1214z - loud! Really glad
to hear them on after the catastrophic flooding in Thailand.
With all 4 antennas working and three rotatable for the first time in a year, I
can put the top one on JA at 109' and keep the other 3 on EU (90'/60'/30').
Not much happening for me to JA, but EU is steady with a large % of Russians
calling and some US. KL2R is a Zone 1 surprise at 1254z, right at his
sunrise.
This happens only near the top of the cycle, and cndx are expected to be good
for a while until the oncoming CME shuts down the bands later. I am pushing
hard with the limited time I have to make as many q's as possible, but I am
actually having trouble getting the callsigns and entering them into the log.
This is more than rustiness - this is mental and physical exhaustion taking a
toll at the start of the contest. A very humbling and frustrating experience.
The first hour ends with 153 q's but I am having a lot of physical and mental
trouble the basics of cw operating.

As the rate picks up into the 13z hour, I am forced to make modifications
already in how I am operating to conserve energy, reduce motion and minimize
thinking. BD5SO calls in at 1304z for z44 and signals start to get louder.
The stations are best now on the bottom 2 15's, a combination that I have not
had in a contest for almost a year - those extra 2 S-units of signal with the
correct wave angles from the low vs. the top antennas sure help me keep the
freq. and stoke the rate! JA starts to disappear way too soon (only a few
worked) and although I am not hearing many Russians, there are still enough Eu
callers to keep the rate high. VU2BGS calls in at 1355z capping off a great 181
hour (all CW) followed by &Z1SJ @ 1401z and YC6JRT z 54 @ 1406z as I switch to
15 SSB.

By 1411z, I am literally worn out after barely more than 2 hours of operating.
I go upstairs to lie down for a few minutes and take some meds with food.

I come back after 10 min and I have a great SSB freq. but very few callers -
all the action is on CW, so after 18 minutes of reduced rate, I am back on 15
CW at 1425z. RW9C and RN0SA are the first two Asiatic Russians to call me @
1441 and 1443z in a contest where you must work every Asiatic Russians station
that you hear - because they represent at least 12 different zones! The rates
are steady but not much happening over the pole. Cndx are not very good and
the qsb is dramatic - already, before the CME hits, I have seen stations go
from S2 to S9 and back again in 30 seconds making a lot of repeats necessary.
I am trying to time my cq's and "agn" in such a way that I can get the station
to come back while they are on the upswing in signal strength. Not so easy.

The abbreviated 14z operating hours ends with 123 q's and 15z starts
promisingly enough with a call from a loud TF3DC in Zone 17 at 1501z. What I
have always found fascinating about Summer contests and propagation is the
seeming importance of grey line signal enhancement at certain times and the
equally baffling irrelevance of it at other times.

In the Winter months, with lower MUF, often you can count on signal enhancement
just on either side of Grey line - this is especially true if there is a "Double
Grey Line" where one station near or at Sunrise with the other near or at
Sunset. Usually in the Winter on the low bands after Sunrise, the station
begins to weaken rapidly in strength and then disappear,
yet often, in the Summer months, this doesn't happen, at least not right away.
This equally true on the high bands after Sunset, when often instead of
stations getting weaker, they actually begin to get stronger after sunset!

This is exactly what happened with Russian stations on after 15z. As Sunset
was passing through from East to West Russia, signals from Russia began to get
louder and more numerous. I knew it was time to try 15 SSB again and I moved
at 1526z. My rate picked up nicely, especially to Russia and Northern Europe
and in addition, some of the Central American HQ stations began to call in:
YS1YS and TI0RC at 1529z and 1533z, HS0ZCW also at 1533z and TG9AJR and HK3C in
zones 11 and 12 at 1543 and 1545z. The 15z hour ended with 177 q's and I
excitedly began 16z with LV5V at 1605z in z16 anticipating a big run. But SSB
fizzled out yet again as CW stayed hot. I knew that 10 had been open for a
while and I likely had missed most of the DX stations earlier - but I was in no
shape to even attempt 2 radio operation, having more than enough trouble just
using one radio.

At 1636z, and very much exhausted, I decided to do my first sweep of 10, 15 and
20 for mults and picked up 15 quick HQ/Zone mults. before stopping at 1701z.
16z had 105 q's but I was in no shape to operate anymore.

I ate, took some more med's and then took a much needed nap (after only 4 hours
of operation!).

I got back on at 20z and was disappointed to see that 15 was mostly dead. It
was clear to me that the CME had already reached us. I found a little "hole" on
20 cw and had a good run which included 4L1UN at 2034z and K0QB in R2 at 2056z.
There was very little Russian or anything to the North. The 158 hour in 20z
followed by hours of 157 hour at 21z and 138 at 22z were fun, but mostly
western EU with stateside. CW was smoking hot while SSB continued to be mostly
being ignored, so I stayed on CW! I got a real chuckle out of that! By 23z the
signal strengths and activity level continued to drop - now mostly Western EU
and Central/SA. LU4MHQ gave me a much needed z14 and PY3AU and PY3AU and KL2R
zones 15 and 1.

Remembering that 15 in the Summer with disturbed ionospheric conditions
produces a band that constantly closes and reopens, I left 20 and quickly found
BN0HQ on 15 CW for CTAL and then went to 15 SSB where I worked RT0C in z34 and
DX0HQ in PARA. I repeatedly called a BY but she never heard me. Back to 20
SSB for a good run of Western EU and North/South America including 5K3R and
VY2RAC for mults (12 and RAC) followed by LR1A, LR7D and SX0HQ in zone 13 and
RCA and RAAG. 23z was a 119 hour despite my playing DXer on 15.

I began 00z on 20 and was rewarded with A47RS calling in for ROARS, and TF2LL
in z17 before qsying to 40 CW at 0006z. 40 was surprisingly quiet and had very
loud EU signals. I started a solid run immediately and must have timed it just
right as the HQ stations quickly found me as well as a lot of other EU multis.
00z was 155 q's followed by 99 q's in the 01z as I did lots of DXing on 40 and
80 and picked up 32 mults. I was surprised that with my pathetic hanging 40
meter wire antenna that RM9A heard me and called in at 0104z from z30. At
0119z I moved to 80 and had fun being one of only a few non-Eu stations calling
all the EU HQ stations that were lined up nicely over 30 khz. Following the
rule that "15 WILL REOPEN", I qsy's from 80 to 15 at 0152 and found ZL4PW in
z60 and ZL6HQ (NZART) and then qsy's back to 40 at 0155z to to work the HQ
stations and zone mults PV8ADI (z12), CW5W (z14), J35Z (Z11).

I followed the strategy of run and qsy several times across 40 and 80 in the
02z hour resulting in 135 q's and 17 mults including LU5OM (z14) and several
more hq stations on 40 and 80 before settling into an unexpected EU runon 80
cw. I had hoped that 20 would be open North over the pole at night, but by now
the CME had done its damage and 20 was pretty much shut down. I found RF9C on
20 cw for zone 30 but that was it.

It was time to try 40 SSB and at 0239 I found a good spot and had a
surprisingly good run with mostly EU at first! At 0256z the last 10 rate on 40
SSB was 318.6 with a good mix of EU. Stateside and Central/South America and I
was having a blast. This was actually the first time that I was experiencing a
real 40 SSB run since all of EU was allowed into our Phone sub-bands many years
ago. It was great fun, but I was completely exhausted and it was time to stop
operating and take my meds and go to sleep. I made a quick qsy back to 80 cw
for 1 hq mult at 0314z to cap 37 q's in 14 min in the 03z hour.

I got up at 10z and was disappointed to see an Auroral Oval of 10 (the highest
reading) and a K of 6. 20 was almost dead and 15 was completely dead.

I made a quick pass through 40 and 80 cw where I picked up ZL6HQ (NZART) at
1006z and HK1MW in z12. I called B4HQ in z44 on 40 for about 15 minutes but he
never heard me - not even a "?". Then I ran stateside for a few minutes on 20
cw and called all the EU HQ stations that I could find on 20. Only 1/2 of them
heard me - some appeared to be "stone deaf". At 1048z, I called cq again and
tried to run with little effect. Back to 40 cw at 1100z where I found 9Y4HQ in
TTARS and then back to 20 which just did not want to open to EU.
My last q was at 1134z - a disappointing end to what had been an amazingly good
start with very good cndx.

When you do a non-serious operation like this was, you get to have a little
more fun than when you are really pushing hard to maximize every mult and q.
I had originally expected to have a 15 meter opening on Sunday in which to get
the HQ stations and zones that I didn't bother with on Saturday. That was a
mistake this year and it easily cost me 20 mults. Ignoring 10 and 20 to stay
on 15 also cost me many easy mults as did the high profile 3-hour off time that
I had to take from 18z - 20z. The lack of meaningful low band antennas also
hurts, but given my very serious illness, my operating expectations were quite
low this weekend.

I was VERY pleased and pleasantly surprised to make 1,815 q's and 182 mults in
13 hrs of Unassisted semi-serious significantly impaired operating. And I had a
lot of fun with a much needed distraction from my very serious and painful
medical issues.

Thanks for all the q's and mults and enjoy the rest of your Summer!
