About 90 watts to a 80 meter 1/4 wave with LP up about 40 feet = Not much fun!
Got on for just a few hours late Friday evening and early Saturday A.M. to give
out some QSO's to the loud ones. I have never worked this one and just wanted
to play around a bit with my puny signal to work a few.

Many QSO's were a chore, requiring several repeats. Kudo's to all of the QSO's
that pulled out my small signal. I was basically bouncing around trying to see
how many states I could work in a few hours. Was actually surprised to work 37
and 4 provinces. Also worked ZF2AM on the DX side on the 2nd or 3rd call, great
ears!!! VE worked was AB, ON, BC and QC. Heard a couple MB in the pileups and
also a few SK, but none of either CQing.

States never heard were .... VT, DE, LA, NV, MT, HI and AK.

States heard but not worked .... FL, MS, OK, CA, WV, IA.

Of the 5 heard and not worked, only CA did I hear calling CQ but could not make
it work. I quit about 2 1/2 hours before sunrise and a few CA were a good 5/9
but couldn't make it work. Had I stuck it out, they would have made it. The
other 5 states heard were all S & P and never heard any from there calling.

DX heard but not worked .... XE1RCS (I think that was the call, it was an XE
anyway) and PJ2T. XE1 was loud but just could not do it. PJ2T was right at my
noise level and my puny signal could not make it.

Seemed like the band wasn't in the greatest shape here. I don't work 160 on a
regular basis except grabbing mults in the domestic contests however I have
seen it in better shape from here!

73 to all and GL to all the serious entries. See you all next weekend from
W0AIH in ARRL SSB.

QRP is a rough row to hoe in this contest! TNX to those stations that could
hear me. Best DX was KH6, TX and WI. Several other states in 9 area heard me
but they gave up. Got all of US area 6 and 7.

Antenna is Lazy-U (Double-L) up in the pine trees.

K3 and Slinky did better on 160 SSB than I expected. Worked W6YI, KI7M, and
C6ANM (good ears!). I'll try the ARRL DX SSB too, to show that I'm not
prejudiced against phone operators.

No RTTY, though. Forget that. I just don't understand the attraction of "making
contacts" by watching letters march across a screen. That reminds me of the
stupid "crawls" all over the TV screen during ball games.

I'd forgot what a terrible call sign K1TN is on slopbucket. Maybe I should get
WN9AUM back.

The local noise I've had here all these years (3) mysteriously disappeared this
weekend. I wonder if it was all the snow we've had. It was amazing what I could
hear on my TX antenna (the Slinky) compared to the snake-in-the-grass RX
antenna that I usually use on 160 and 80. I heard lots of West Coast and even a
few EU.

But I didn't hear VT. I think maybe VT needs one more active contester living
there. I'll bet it could be really quiet camping in the woods and running
everything on 12 volts DC.

Could only put 6 hours into contest this year, very rough without proper
antenna, maybe next year. Had lots of fun and it is a challange running LP.
Thanks for all the ops that held in there and worked my small siginal
operation.
 
NX9T   Single Op HP   27,8552010-02-28 05:18:41
Just had a couple (about 2) hours to get on during the weekend but had a great
time while QRV. Thanks to all for the Qs. I always enjoy this contest but
usually have more time available to make a better showing. However, it did
seem to be a tad "slower" than usual...maybe that was just the hours I was on
the air? Maybe more folks were off doing RTTY? Best wishes to all...thanks
again for the fun...and see you next time!

W0ANT's first top band contest where she worked 100% of stations. I ran and
monitored rig control. Was a tough go in the evenings but good in the mornings.
Just a 55 foot Alpha Delta DX-B sloper with 100 watts and a good Dentron
MT-2000A Tuner. We tried running a few times, and got about 20% of our Q's
from this, but it was mostly S/P with a lot of vocals- USA Districts Worked:
No W1's W2's or W3's. W4=1, W5=4, W5=9, W6=8, W7=14, W8=2, W9=7, W0=15, VE=4,
DX was XE=2. VE6SF was furthest QSO at 5,556 miles from our QTH according to
QRZ.com.

I couldn't get excited by this one, but I did make a brief appearance and got
the associated packet pileup thrill.
 
KH7Y   Single Op HP   48,1322010-02-28 07:31:59
Sunday better than Saturday, but did not seem like much action out there. Small
spark to east coast 11-13 UTC Sunday, no JA runs!!

Band conditions were very different on the second night, compared to the first?
Most, if not all, signals were considerably down, on the second night?
Missed DE and NV for "domestic" WAS. Improved my score, from last year, and had
some fun, despite some terribly inconsiderate operators!
 
NØKE   Single Op HP   52,5452010-02-28 09:01:17
Missed VT and KL7 for WAS. Best DX RW0CF, CT1JLZ, CR2X, PJ2T, ZF2AM, NP4A, KH7Y,
KH7MM and several XE stations. NO AF for WAC. I thought rules said to avoid the
DX Window1830-1835 but one old time east coaster was camped out there all
Saturday night! Do we or do we not have a window anymore?
 
WØBH   Single Op HP   50,8202010-02-28 09:02:21
Lost my ProIII transmit in the ice during the ARRL DX CW, so used my IC7000 with
no receive antennas this go-around. Fun anyway, but I know I missed lots of
Qs.

Overall, didn't work or hear NV VT DC AK HI and worked VE2-VE7. Thanks to all
for the Qs!

KG7H   Single Op Assisted HP   62,5922010-02-28 09:09:14
Good conditions the first night. Limited effort this
time due to time constraints - late start but WAS
the first night except for Vt. I Had to quit before
second night got started. Still, lots of fun!

I got everything working before the contest, but I have some noise source that
kept the meter over S-9 all the time on the vertical transmit antenna. Since I
am on a small piece of property, it was transferred to the beverages. The
northeast beverage was the least affected luckily, so I heard about 25 strong
Europeans. I was surprised the Europeans were so easy to copy and the
stateside guys were, many times, much weaker. I never was able to copy any
station on the vertical all weekend. The SE Beverage was the noidest by far. I
think I transferred the noise from the power line close to the end of the SE
Beverage to the vertical where the Beverage passes close to the end of one of
the elevated radials. Then the vertical reradiated the noise.
It kind of reminded me of the first year I made a huge ground plane for 160 by
converting the 160 inverted V to radials and flying a plastic helium balloon
shaped like a wing to hold up the vertical portion of the antenna. I attached
the balloon about 3 feet above the top of the vertical and the static charging
was huge and made a terrible noise on receive. What an alligator I was!
The weekend before during ARRL CW, I worked 29 Europeans on the vertical. I
noticed the noise then, but it went away before the contest.
By the way, I found that power tool battery chargers left plugged in with no
battery inserted can be a significant source of noise that sounds like an
electric fence charger.

A great weekend: worked many friends, good propagation, everything worked as
expected, many EU QSOs in the log, warm quesadillas, good wine and the
traditional hospitality from our hosts. What else can you ask for?

KØVXU   Single Op HP   92,7502010-02-28 10:58:02
This is my first season on 160 meters and my first efforts at contesting on 160
meters. Maybe it is the novelty of first attempts, but working Top Band
contests has been great fun. With only a minimal antenna (Iverted L), any
station worked outside of the USA/Canada amazes me.

Since this was my first CQ 160 SSB test, I didn't operate the full time -- just
11 hours. Because of other commitments, I missed most of the Europe /Africa
openings but was pleasantly surprised by LU2DTK early Sunday morning.

Of the states/provinces I neither worked nor heard LB, NB, NF, NU, PEI, NWT, or
YT.

All in all it was great fun and no doubt I'll be back next year.

Lots of "snow" noise in the NE of the USA
 
K5EWJ   Single Op LP   28,0442010-02-28 11:09:23
This was my first contest on 160 SSB. I was surprised at the activity and the
number of contacts I was able to make with low power and a simple inverted L
antenna. Just before I started the contest I found that my L was not loading
properly. I pulled the grass around the bottom and that did not help much, so
I decided to go with low power and use the auto tuner in my K3. That worked
out better than I expected and I had a great time. I am sure that my score is
not a winner, but I did manage to more than double my lifetime number of 160
SSB QSOs (54 years licensed). So I am a happy camper. Noise was reasonable
even though I don't have any receive antennas. I used my Carolina Windom some
for diversity receive and that helped a surprising amount with some weak
signals.

My friend Chuck, W5PR who is 18.2 miles west of me and has a strong station was
putting in a 50 over S9 signal. I was able to make a contact 2.5 KHz below his
run frequency and could not tell that he was transmitting if I was not within
+/- 3 KHz of his transmit frequency. Am I ever impressed with the K3 receiver
and with how clean Chuck's transmitter operates.

I hope everybody enjoyed the contest as much as I did!

A casual effort to hand out a few contacts. QRP on SSB with a low antenna is a
challenge. NR5M had a loud signal from Texas.
 
S5ØK   Single Op Assisted HP   377,5202010-02-28 13:26:10
Surprised nicely with ssb part of cq160.
The plan was to work the first night and a few hours in Saturday evening.
More dx stations than expected, more states/prov and a number of calls from
rare dx stations the first day helped to add a few hours in Sunday morning.

Glad to catch you all, thanks for all calls and hope to see volume of NA
stations next weekend in arrl.

ZF2AM(K6AM)   Single Op HP   455,5102010-02-28 13:31:34
Conditions were only fair the first night, but we managed to pull ahead of last
year with the addition of better antennas. Had a moderate run of EU's with
decent signals. Two or three of them were unbelievably LOUD! And I mean that
literally - unbelievable.

Night two was a bust. Only a few EU's heard at all and most everyone was weak.
Things got reeeeeeal slow after midnight. Could only scrape up another 250 Q's
all night. Ended op 50 Q's behind last year.

Hats off to the winners, no doubt from VE with 6 more hours of darkness and
AF/SA, where the points are double and the pileups deep.

Thanks for all the Q's. QSL's go to K6AM direct, W6 buro, or LOTW

100 watts into an inverted L with 4 above radials at 8 feet does the trick
here.

MY goal was to work the 2 outstanding states I needed for WAS on 160 and I was
successful. I got two ND stations and one KL7 Sunday morning. As I tuned
across the band I heard a station say, "Thanks for Alaska," and my dial hand
froze. Even better I was able to hear the KL7. I pronged the magic pronker on
the voice keyer and he heard me. Luckily he had not yet been posted or it might
ahve been a sad frustrating story. This was 6:45 local just in time for the
magic of grayline.

The ND station was found posted low in the band, a KD4, while I was packet
pouncing. I clicked on a spot and heard him say, I thought, that he was in NC.
When I worked him he said, "North Dakota" and I couldn't believe it. I asked
for a repeat on the state and it was indeed North Dakota. A little while later
I worked a second ND station - not as exciting as the forst time around.

So all I need now are the LoTW matches or the cards.

Late Sunday afternoon I did a bit of running to get a few more QSO's in the
log, but the mission was accomplished. I am very happy about my 163 Q's. I may
even have 2 new entities for DXCC in the log as I am now half way to DXCC on 160
without a linear.

The four radials will have to be taken down in a few weeks before the gardening
season begins. That will be at the end of the long snow shoveling season this
year.
 
K5ZD   Single Op HP   73,2782010-02-28 14:09:11
Good conditions to Europe, but hard to dig them out among the local CQers. But,
that's part of the "fun" of this contest.

Worked K8JQ on 1997. Not sure I ever worked anyone that high in the band
before!

Rig: 756 Pro
Amp: HF 1250 - 750w
Ant: Inverted L 53ft vertical

Found this one a slog, band was quite noisy and my 756pro had blown an internal
fuse for the RX antenna, so no beverage on this one. Very different conditions
from CW portion. Missed NV for domestic states and PEI!! where was VY1ZM and
VY2SS? (of course missed the normal ones, LB, YT, NU)

Nothing heard from Alaska or Hawaii. Managed to work all continents except
Asia. Best DX was LR2F.

Thanks for all the Qs. Amazing to see the band map completely full from 1802
to 1985... Now to rest my ears until next weekend..

Had a great time, 3 experienced ops, 3 brand new to contesting. What a baptism
the newbies got...Equipment, TT Omni VII, 1/4 wave vertical, Henry amp, 3
Switchable 1300' beverages, N1MM, voice keyer within N1MM. Worked all states
but Nevada, missed the usual VE, YT, PEI, LB. Had UU7J, and many Europeans call
us. Several from Africa, and SA, but no Asia at all. Score in 2007 was 170,000
and only 16 dx, so doubled the DX this time and increased score by 80,000.
Everything was greyed out on band map, except DX we could not hear in the
midwest, so hung it up with 9 hours left in the contest. Thanks to everyone who
called us, and for the patience shown our ops who were new to contesting, you
guys were GREAT !!

We had no time to prepare for this contest. For about 3 month we have power
noise. The power company work for all week to fix the problem but
unfortunately the noise steel here.
We apologies to all of you who cooling as this time and we can’t
here you . I wish the noise despaired and this station will perform
again good . We will work hard to have all reedy for ARRL SSB 2010

Great fun again.

Not sure if conditions were as good for me this year as last.
Thanks to all for looking in the noise for me again.
Again thanks goes out to Charlie W4TMR for his antenna design
It does work the best of any i have used from this qth.
If anyone would like to see it just look in the Jan issue of QST.

Pro:
Elevated full size vertical (top 20' bent 90 degrees, so it's really an
Inv-L), 2 tuned elevated radials, performed OK. Finally reached Europe on
160.

Con:
NOISE
Tough going without an amp.
 
WD5R   Multi-Op HP   173,1282010-02-28 14:47:51
The down side,
Considering the effort we've put in to improving our chances of working the
EU's,
two wide spaced phased beverages and one receiver always looking NE,
I am disappointed with our dx count.

The bright side,
For me, it's great to see the smile on Marlene's
face when guys take time to make a pleasant
comment to her during the exchange.

We try to keep in mind that it wouldn't be much
of a contest if all the signals were easy to copy.
The low power and qrp stations make it a contest.

100+ less QSOs than last year, but about 9 percent more total points. Same
number of entities, but seven more states/provinces. Exactly 200 W/VE QSOs.

See you next weekend in ARRL DX SSB. The DR1A station is part of the "BCC Open
House", and we are expecting about 40 visitors for the weekend:

Whatever HG8DX was using was very effective Sunday. He was the loudest EU
station here. CR2X was the most consistent EU signal. UU7J was loud when he
called in.

Never heard NV or KL7, so no WAS. Was beginning to think VT and WA would be
AWOL too, but Sunday morning proved that wrong.

SSB is not as fun as CW. There's no place to hide or relax on the band. Still,
it is quite a thrill to get called by DX when running LP.

My hat's off to folks like WB4MSG, who have the brass to run QRP. Sounded good
here!

Glad to hand out TN to so many who needed it.

Same setup, other than the Tee is bent now from a wind storm...

Thanks for all the QSOs.

Rig: IC-756ProIII
Pwr: 100W
Ant: 160/80m inverted L @55ft/22 radials
RX antenna: 160/80m coax loops with preamp

I only played the second night for a bit, and started late at that, too. I did
better than expected, though. The additional radials payed off, but I need
more, especially towards the west. However, the house in the way. Something's
gotta give. :-)

I had replaced the coaxial Inverted L with a Battle Creek Special like antenna.
I only have the 80m trap in the antenna. It plays very well, better than I had
hoped for.

Worked only one EU station, but I understand that the best EU opening was on on
Friday evening. I can't really say anything about the conditions because I just
don't have enough experience on 160 meters.

Thanks to everyone for the Q and for sticking with me to make the contact.

Fair conditions. More QSOs than last year's 655. Two more States and Provinces
than last year's 54, all US States, but no MB or LB. Our long range
communications were not as good this year. Only 39 compared to 47 last year.
Based on the results, propagation was not as good, although the QRN was
minimal. Still hard to keep a run frequency for long due to the nature of SSB
on a crowded band. Had a blast before the contest working a bunch of JA's on
Friday morning, but that was not possible during the contest. Best DX was KH6,
KL7 and UA. Confusion of contest was difficulty logging KP4KE in FL, logged as
W4/KP4KE. Same equipment and antennas as last year.

Managed to work 18 DX countries including KL7RA plus all 48 States. Listened
hard but didn't hear any Hawaiian stations, PEI, NF, LAB, NWT, YT & NU this
contest. Poor prop or no op?

All domestic Q's but one were in the 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th call areas.
Disappointed at the CW guy who sat on the dit side of his paddle on top of a K0
calling CQ. No problem copying through it with the audio filter on my IC-746.

Wow my voice held up! Just got over the first cold I have had in several years.

It seemed the conditions leading up to contest time havent been so good. But it
was good to see the band open up after 0400 and start hearing europeans. It was
difficult to copy from here with lots of NA callers and low signals. I managed
to only work 12 countries in EU, 2 in AF, and one in AS - (RW0CF) had the best
signal. The dx in SA and the caribbean were strong here.

I worked 75 stations in Canada (8 prov). The most totals from NA were CA with
112 q's followed by TX with 91 Q's.

It is a different ball game out here in the deep SW to work EU on phone. I can
only wonder how much easier it would be from the new england coast with my same
antenna system (full size four square).

I had fun working the contest and can't wait for the next round.

KV4FZ   Single Op LP   264,1892010-02-28 16:44:50
It was a very frustrating weekend. I could hear well (10 Beverages) but for
some reason it was not easy to be heard either on the mainland or Europe even
when there wasn't a pileup on the station called. Many time after calling
someone for 15 minutes I would get a partial reply and then losing out to a
lack of interest in sticking with me...even though I was certain to be a new
multiplier. I tried S&P but it appears the wall of US and Eu's working each
other was at times was just plain impenetrable. Additionally I never develop a
run of more than a handful of stations before some big guns moved in working
someone in the next county.

After the contest I did a spot search on my call and found very few on my call
which leads me to believe that between 1800 and 1850 was loaded with wall to
wall signals and splatter, especially in Europe. I was hoping to reach the
goal of 500 Q's and 50 countries but only the latter was achieved with the help
of a bunch of Caribbean and South American stations. Night number #1 was fair
but night #2 was a total bust with 20 minutes or more between QSO's at times.

Sure would like to know what happened to the previously active South Dakota
stations. Nothing in ARRL CW either from there that I heard. If someone where
to load up their rig RV and head to South Eastern SD, even at LP with a Marconi
supported by some trees, they would have been very popular. Even W0ZTL and
KD4POJ in ND had constant pileups...so why is there no SD? I also missed NB,
VO1 and VO2 but that is not as strange as not getting South Dakota.

So next year maybe a quest op will be here as this contest is just not possible
to win without QRO and 1000 or more Q's. With the stations 250 miles to the
south getting 10 points for every mainland station to my 5 points it is going
to be more of the same "mission impossible". So what you have for the CQ WW
160's is no vacation DX-peditions for this contest going to VP2V, VP2E, VP2M,
V2, J8, J6, FG, 8P, HH, like them do for CQWW both Phone and CW. There is just
no incentive to go to these places when you have to work twice as many stations
to even get in the top ten DX finishing.

Thanks to all that stuck with my call. Your reward is my deep appreciation and
probably a needed multiplier that I was able to provide. I have uploaded LOTW so
your confirmation is there for 160 SSB DXCC challenge.

One thing I learned for sure is that hearing well isn't everything but being
able to work what you hear is the only thing!

160 was loaded with signals but getting anyone to hear me was a
challenge so I quit the first night early. Lots of noise the second
night even on the beverages but did manage a few hours of rate
working a lot of very weak stations. Tuning up the band on one
pass found a lot of Cqing but few getting answers and every one
was in my log so I doubt many had any record breaking scores this
contest.

No Europe worked and none heard.

The exchange was changed and KL7 is DX in this contest and we
give our zone. Many had problems trying to log KL7 as a state.

Try this all again next week for the ARRL DX Phone and hope to have
better conditions on topband for SSB. 73 Rich KL7RA Kenai, Alaska

Now I remember this contest from last year! First night's a blast (except for
the S9 power line noise on the North Beverage and the S5 noise on the NE
Beverage). Second night's spent trying NOT to fall asleep between Q's. Not
entirely the fault of the contest, however, as I don't sleep well between
"sessions."

My apologies to all those that suffered through what must have seemed like an
endless series of "again, again"'s. Most of you up North were copied on the NE
or East Beverage and my hearing is NOT REALLY as bad as it must have seemed!

I sacrificed some rate this year due to the endless need for fills. Good news
is that I worked more EU's this year even thru the noise.

Spent 3 hours after sunrise on Sunday and found 20 plus power poles that will
need attention from our local power company (soon, I hope).

For transmit, we are running a 3 ele (one driven/two parasitic) vertical array
switchable NE/SE/SW/NW (with all parasitic elements switched out for OMNI).

8 X 800' Beverages N/NE/E/SE/S/SW/W/NW for receive.

Band QSOs Pts Sta Cty
1.8 227 1203 31 21
Total 227 1203 31 21
Score: 62,556

Analysis compared to 2009:
Increased Q's by 75%
Slightly increased sections and countries
Increased score by 62%
On time 7.75hrs, reduced compare to 9hrs in 2009.
Increased Q rate from 16 to 29 per hour

Put up the inverted L higher than last year, made a big difference.

Could have increased Q rate by staying up later at night—but just could not
do it, my week was tough as I had to travel and got in very late on the
thursday, so I just could not muster the energy or bring myself to try the 5 hr
energy drinks. Will save them for ARRL INT DX. To top it off we had a large
rain/windstorm (110Km/hr wind) on friday that broke the guys to the inverted-L
and it was sort of S shaped when the contest started. Have to think about
alternates antennas for next year.

I didn't have a chance to prepare for this contest and it shows. I could have
done alot better but it just was not in the cards.

Propagation was poor in general, I did not make it past the midwest or have
good propagation into EU. No major runs on saturday or sunday.

To sum up, challenging antenna and preparation led to mediocre performance. I
did better than last year so I am pleased, but I could have done alot better.

Till Next Year!!

A tough battle with 100W, 1/4 wave sloper and a high noise suburban location. I
am always amazed when any DX hears me but it is even more of a challenge on
SSB.

KV4FZ has amazing ears and despite being sandwiched between strong domestic
stations, he puts out a tremendous signal. ZF2AM is in the same category, great
ears.

The only DX from EU heard was CR3L and he CQ's endlessly and I couldn't even
get a QRZ from him.

Hopefully I will have fixed my RFI problem by next year and I can run a little
more power.

Thnaks for all the Q's

See you next week in ARRL DX

Nothing stellar but I exceeded my initial goal of 100 Qs. Still doing battle
with an ear infection. Spent the time in the chair learning more about
operating the FT-2000 in SSB. Used the waterfall display on the SDR-IQ
monitoring the FT-2000 IF out to find the stations that weren't spotted yet,
and to identify gaps to run in. Very cool tool. Also used the SDR to help trim
up my output spectrum (FT-2000 has adjustable transmit audio bandwidth, another
nice feature I never played with before) when needed to fit in a narrower slot.
Thanks for the Qs and see you next weekend in ARRL-SSB!

I traveled to the northeast for the experience and learning opportunity.
Actually I thought it would be nice to get a clean sweep of the Canadian
Maritimes for once in this contest.

I accomplished the first. I truly enjoyed a great experience with station
owner Paul-W1IMD and his super team of locals which includes Norm-KA1SG,
John-K1ESE, Bob-W1IF, and Norm-W1ITT. Thanks, Paul, for your super hospitality
and for the fantastic efforts of the team.

The week was spent preparing the W1IMD station with two, wire transmitting
antennas and four, 2-wire Beverages in the Maine woods. This effort was not
easy, as tramping through the woods and over the rocky ridges with a whole lot
of snow on the ground is not something this desert rat does every day.

What I found out is it is no easier to work PEI, LB, and NF from Maine than it
is from New Mexico. Apparently there were no stations on from those Provinces.
MB was also a non show in my log. Nothing from the frozen north either.

The actual operating experience was a real eye opener. Wall to wall
overlapping signals clear up to 1.980 or so. Absolutely no where to squeeze in
to run without offending someone.

The propagation was strange. I have no experience at this latitude, but even
local signals were very weak much of the time. I apologize to all the stations
I could not copy, or with which I could not complete the contact.

Propagation to the west was lacking. Contacts west of the Rocky mountains was
less than 2 dozen. First contact with CA was after 0700 the first night. Only
a couple of OR and 3-4 WA.

I did manage to work all 50 states. KL7RA was the last one, after sunup Sunday
morning, and the 7th to last contact in the log.

Thanks to the quantities of OH, PA, and VA stations who helped the Q count
tremendously. Likewise, the local 1 area New England stations were abundant.

It was much more difficult to work the EU stations than I had anticipated.
With the shoulder to shoulder locals CQing, I found it difficult to hear any EU
other than the dominant super stations. Still, the learning experience was
good.

I never felt strong, even though a number of stations commented on the strength
of the signal. All things are relative I suppose.

Many things were learned about the station which will assist in preparing it
for the next go-round. The duplex operation with two K-3s worked very well,
but narrow band TX antennas and auto type tuners is not conducive to QSYing
quickly up and down the band when using the 2nd radio in the S&P mode.

Even though we measured in excess of 60 dB of isolation between the two
transmit antennas, there was interaction between the two Palstar tuners with
reverse direction RF.

Thanks to all those that made it into the K1U log. All QSL requests should be
made directly to my mailing address as shown in the QRZ.com listing.

Congratulations to brother K2DM, whose QRP score is still at the top of the
claimed scores for ARRL CW. All three Briggs brothers have won the award for
QRP CW in the ARRL DX Contest.

Speaking of the bros, it is easy to take VY2ZM for granted. I can think of
about 2,000 things that were missing from this weekend's running of CQ 160
Phone: contacts with PEI. I saved 40 minutes of operating time for the very
end of the contest, hoping that Robbie, VY2SS might find me and supply the
needed island multiplier, but he and others were probably watching the hockey
game!

As for me, the story of this contest is that W8JI (the Death Star) and WB9Z
were both off the air. My buddy Paul, N4PN, was operating from home with his
Pine Tree Inverted Vee, and Jerry was at PJ2T drinking Rum Punches. This saved
me the embarrassment of making 300-400 fewer QSOs than my competitors.

I left nothing in the chair during this contest. My QSO and country totals are
personal records. Many nice multipliers from the Caribbean rim and Central and
South America came my way, including our friends at C6, ZF2AM, PJ2T, TO2T,
HI3TEJ, V48M, 9Y4D, KP2 and KP4, V31, TI5, LU, PY, J7, HK, YV, PY0. My QTH
provides a great shot to these locations. Thanks for answering my CQs.

Despite making a total of 168 EU contacts, I feel that I left several dozen out
there. I did not work France or ON4! It is quite difficult to run EU in this
contest.

For the record, I never achieved a "quiet" frequency in this contest. Those
who think it is possible to have an undisturbed frequency below 1850 in this
contest are kidding themselves. All of my EU runs took place on 1930 and 1969.
Even 1850 on Saturday evening was unworkable once the EU's started calling me.

At K3ZM, I work as many EU's as I do by extracting many of them from at or
below the noise level. It is impossible for me to do this on, say, 1821. At
the beginning of this contest, I dedicated myself to remaining below 1840,
believing that my painfully low QSO total versus my inland competitors resulted
from my fleeing above 1900. But I eventually did it again. It is simply not
possible for me to copy the soft EU's calling me when all I hear is, for
example, the fine next door signal from WE3C, whom I found myself shoulder to
shoulder with for the first few hours of the contest.

Many thanks to the DX for calling in. This contest is hard work.

This was a shorter contest than I had planned. I didn't get on until late on
Saturday. Mistake! I heard -- and skipped over -- some of the west coasters
when I first got on, foolishly thinking I'd catch them later. Wrong!

I S+P'd for the first few Q's, and then ran for the rest of the time. I quit
just before 1200z Sunday when my brain and eyes couldn't quite focus anymore.
PVRC guru W3ZZ is right, B-I-C is the key. When the rates were slow in the
middle of the night, I was called by mults I needed -- SD, ND, etc. As Gene
says, you can't work 'em if you're not in the chair ready to hear 'em.

My plan was to get back on a couple for the last couple of hours on Sunday.
Unfortunately, I never made it.

As a result, I missed half of the W7's: AZ, ID, MT, NV, (and DC) and more than
a a handful of Canadians: LB, NF, PEI, MB, SK, NU, NWT, YT.

As always, it goes without saying that I never heard KL7. Never have... will I
ever? Not unless I can get the receive antennas to work in this very noisy
urban environment. To o much snow and mess -- not to mention lack of time --
to get them up and running. [I did lose my 80m wire to falling/flying branches
during the very unusual 50 mph winds this past week].

No equipment failures or freak outs. Two contests in a row. Amazing.

I had a great time. I've NEVER had 100 or more per hour runs from this station.
Quite a thrill! Thanks to the poking and prodding of my fellow PVRCers, this
contesting game is getting to be fun once again!

See you in the next one!

Limited time due to scheduled out-of-town activity; but made some Qs for
others with 100% S&P. High QRN during passage of two small rain-storm cells.
That may be part of the reason for all the repeats.
I imagine some had distractions with NAQP RTTY Test, Las Vegas NASCAR, and
interest concerning Chile Earthquate/Tsunami events.
The test was a bit like a State QSO party in that it was laid-back, and some

Casual effort mostly S&P except for a good run for a couple hours high in the
band on Friday night. It's hard for me to justify spending much time in this
contest having just an average station. Most of the EU stations just CQ in your
face when you call them (unless you are on the east coast). There were some US
stations who seemed to have a hard time hearing too. You would think running
600 watts and a decent inverted L you would be heard.

I have found out the new QTH is a pretty good (and quite) location. Listened to
K1LZ running EU for awhile and I could hear 75% of the EU stations calling him.

Not great conditions but could have been worse too so reasonably pleased with
the results. The 4 square behaved well and we never used any of the beverages
or other antennas that were available. Runs were short and a clear frequency
was hard to find so a lot of time and persistence was needed to get over the
500 qso mark. No mainland Eu heard at all either night, but Martti at CR2X was
worked easily and heard both nights at consistently workable levels. Also
heard D4C calling other stations but couldn't connect. We managed to work most
of the Carrib/SAm dx that we heard. La and Vt answered our early morning CQ's
for a clean sweep of all states. Didn't do so well for VE's as PEI, Nfld and
all the northern territories were not heard.

Really enjoyed the multiop comradery and socializing before, during and after

This contest was my first real experience on 160. I used the contest as
motivation to finally get an antenna up on 160. I used a double bazooka and it
seemed to work OK. I'll be back for more fun on 160. 73, D.

About 300 fewer contacts than last year...I had to leave to help a client and
only got in about 18 hours. This is not a fun contest! QRM was brutal as
usual. Did make more DX contacts this year. Thanks for all the Q's

In the Washington DC area, there are constant radio commercials for something
called "sedation dentistry," where apparently they put you under anesthesia and
work on your teeth all day. I think there needs to be a "sedation 160 SSB"
contest - for me, 160 phone is like having my teeth drilled into.

I just got on a few times to spin the dial and pass out contacts. Between what
seemed like high absorption and just the difference between CW and SSB, I
thought my antenna had fallen down. Sunday am pre-East Coast sunrise seemed
like decent conditions.
 
KO7X   Single Op HP   56,9602010-03-01 03:42:35
Finally made WAS in this contest this year. The inverted L with 0 radials seems
to be working. Biggest surprise was having RW0CF and LU2DVI call in within a
few minutes of each other. A brief run on Sunday morning also produced a
Vermont QSO which was the last state that I was missing. Never heard any EU, AF
or VK/ZL. Got lots of sleep too.

Fun to play a bit in this one, but a phone contest on 160m is a real endurance
test! CW is definitely the mode for this band! I was happy with the performance
of my station. An Inv-L is the greatest invention for this band! Cheap, easy,
and good performer, even with only two elevated radials! I'm getting killed
with travel and workload right now, so I was too dead to put in any decent
time. I have to recharge my batteries for ARRL DX SSB next weekend! I'm hoping
for a gung-ho effort in that one. I hope I have the energy!
 
PJ2T(WB9Z)   Single Op HP   369,1602010-03-01 05:52:56
Rough conditions... I believe contest propagation was not as good
as the nights before the contest.

Plus, I had to deal will noisy power line insulators generating
S9 noise on the USA beverage and DX Engineering receive 4 square.
It has not rained here in 5 weeks or better and the insulators are
coated with salt water spray. I am hoping for a GOOD rain before
the ARRL DX SSB Contest.

What saved the contest for me was the EU beverage up on the "ridge"
and a 80 dipole up there that worked pretty well for receiving.

Thanks again to Caribbean Contesting Consortium for allowing me
to once again use the very fine PJ2T station.

Look for me next weekend from PJ2T single op all bands in the
ARRL DX SSB Contest.

All reports sent were 59 QC, unless otherwise noted.

Equipment Description: Yaesu FT-1000D, Ten Tec Titan (700 watts)

Antenna: Inverted L w/16 x 1/8 WL radials, EU Beverage 500 feet (100 feet under
the ice and snow)

PC Pentium 1 166 MHz (DOS), Software CT 10.04

I was planning to operate from VE3RM for 4th year in a row, but bad snow storm
keep me at home at last moment, as my station wasn't ready (I have all my stuff
packed in my car to go to RM) I started almost two hours later, as I know my
station isn't competitive with the big guns, I tried to have as much fun as
posible and put my target in made 500 QSOs from my home in SSB (I never did
that before from VE2), and I did it !.

Contest was a lot of fun instead I haven''t work a lot of DX (I need to improve
my RX), I've worked 58 VEs (but none VE8, VY0, VY1, VY2, VO1 neither VO2),
49 states (KH7 call me at my sunrise but KL7 was never heared) + DC, some EU
were on my log (RW2F was loudest all the contest) and working 3 LUs (LR2F
the strongest SA) made my weekend, I missed three mults that didn't copy me:
KP4, HI and PY0.

I had has to repair my amp Sunday at 3AM local time, I was some sleepy but the
stamina of the contest help me and the localization of the fault and repair
took me less than one hour, not to bad. It's worth to have almost every spare
part at home.

I've finished Sunday around 12 UTC after around 16 hours of operation not a lot
of effort but very happy with my score.

See you in ARRL SSB

99% search and pounce.......chasing cluster spots. Too many other things going
on to spend much time doing this one. Spending a weekend dealing with 160 SSB
is not real high on my "want to do list" anyway. My main objective was to just
hand out some q's and work a little dx.
Some amazing scores out there!

Thanks once again to Richard and Susan for letting me come play at their
wonderful station and for their gracious hospitality as usual.

I'm lucky enough not to have Friday classes so when the invitation to arrive
Thursday was brought up, I thought that would be a pretty good idea. After
having almost fallen asleep or hearing things that weren't there last year on
the second night I think this is probably the only way for me to seriously give
this a good effort.

I arrived a little after 4pm on Thursday and got settled in. We watched a bit
of the Olympics and I decided to listen a bit on 160 and worked a couple of new
band countries for myself before going to sleep around midnight.

I woke up around 10 Friday morning (extremely well rested) and remembered a
thought I'd had just before going to sleep the night before. I mentioned to
Richard that it would be much easier for me to use the left K3 (I'm left
handed) rather than the right K3 I used last year. This turned out to be a bit
of a task. Richard graciously tore much of his usual SO2R setup apart just for
a stinkin' 160SSB test. We took the laptop that is sometimes used as a server
computer and brought it in the shack for me to use. Luckily Richard had a spare
Rigblaster Plus for me to use to be able to still have voice keying but getting
it set properly took a good bit of time. This change turned out to be much less
tiring on me in that I didn't have to constantly reach across myself to turn the
VFO.

The contest started and the first two hours were abysmal. I had a pretty loud
'egg-frying' noise that was brought under control by the noise blanker but
still hindered me a lot in my ability to hear. K2UR even called the house and I
got relayed a message that I had a huge pileup; I heard nothing but noise.
Things got better as the sun set but I still felt like I had a bunch of people
call that I just couldn't hear. Seems this is the consensus of a couple of the
South Texas op as well as I had both K5NZ and NR5M tell me that either the US
callers were very loud or shockingly weak. I will venture to guess that I
probably lost 30 or 40 Q's to the noise/condx. On the other hand, I felt very
loud. I held down 1847.8 the entire 15 hours. That was cool.

As a consequence of my plentiful sleep, I felt great the entire night...well,
until about 6am or so. I ended with 715Q the first night, just ahead of last
year's first night total. The saving grace this year was much more EU and even
a handful of KH6's (of which I had none last year). I also ended the first
night only needing 3 more states. VE9 eluded me the entire contest but I heard
VE1ZZ very clearly during the first couple of hours.

A hearty breakfast was had and I easily slept from 10am-4pm. When I woke up,
Gary, W5ZL and his wife Leslie had stopped by to talk all things WRTC and get
ready for a W5 FOC dinner next weekend. Once again, a great meal of tacos was
had with all of them before the grind started.

The second night was pretty rough for me. I got on a bit later than I'd hoped
(likely because I wanted some more delicious tacos) and ended up in a couple of
different places during the course of the evening. I wrote last year that I
needed to focus on S&Ping more the second night and this turned out pretty well
for me. I ended up finding DE VERY high in the band and later found DC. During
the course of the evening, I worked a couple of more EU and a good deal of
XE's. NX5M stopped by and asked me what I still needed. I told him I just
needed VT and he told me that KK1L was lurking around that that he'd been
called by him during his run. Well, I wasn't quite sure what to do then so I
just kept CQing and hoping that either I would find it on the second VFO or
he'd call me. Neither happened. Pretty soon after that I got bumped off the QRG
by a EU and went up to 1918 and had a pretty decent US run up there. After
tiring of running so high I went looking for a spot down toward the bottom and
found 1805.75 open and took it. The first person to call me was K1LPS in VT.
That was WAY cool. Much appreciated.

As usual, the second night was pretty slow but was apparently semi-interesting
as I never dozed once.

I quit at 8am, had breakfast, and slept a good 3 hours before making the trip
home. I knew NR5M quit before I did Sunday morning so I suspected that he'd be
on the last hour or half hour. Just as I was getting close to Hempstead I
decided to turn the radio in the car on and have a listen. Sure enough, he was
there CQing endlessly just as I had been from 7-8am. He heard my puny signal
from the mobile so we compared notes. He'd edged me out once again but not by
as much as last year. Thanks for the fun (yet nerve-racking) competition,
George.

I had a very nice time this weekend although I've once again been reminded how
much more I love CW on 160. Richard and Susan's hospitality is great and the
station plays extremely well. I can always count on laughing a whole lot when I
go there. But, I've also still got a lot to learn about the band and the K3
(which, once again, was a saviour in digging out signals). I tried diversity
mode for quite a while and when the signals were loud, was pretty neat to
listen to. But, unfortunately most of the weekend was spent trying to pull one
letter at a time out of the noise.

See y'all next time and give a listen in a couple of weeks (Mar 20/21) as NO5W,
W5ZL, and I go drivin' through Oklahoma.

Not a serious effort. First 5 hours spent LP. Got frustrated when C4M showed up.
Reluctantly, I fired up the amp and worked him easily. From that point, the rest
is history. No 6's or 7's. Too much QRM, too many loud signals with low qrn =
impossible situation. Went to bed around 1AM both nights. 160m SSB is my
reality check before the ARRL Phone contest. Looking forward to the next cw
contest!!!!

Thanks for the qsos

Absolutely amazed at what my small station was able to work (Inv L at 40 ft - NO

my CQ at 2AM riveting me wide awake! SSB sucks... CW Forever!!!!!
 
W1TJL   Single Op Assisted HP   65,9892010-03-01 17:43:04
Conditions were good but I did not put a lot of hours in - still recuperating
from some bug I caught last weekend... But, did fairly well with my vertical
and most of the time 150 watts or so. Discovered a new problem that had not
surfaced during previous 160 contests where I was getting RF back into the
system but only with the microphone switch in the mix. When I removed it all
was clean. Another issue to resolve - or not - maybe I'll just wait for the
YCCC SO2R box I ordered.

My total Time operating was 11 hours. Rigs used were my Kenwood TS-950SDX and
the Yaesu FT-2000. Antenna is a 65 ft tall vertical with elevated radials and
four 33 ft top wires. Amp is the trusty old Ten-Tec Titan but I kept it
loafing at under a KW when it was in use.

Looking forward to this weekend's ARRL DX SSB!

K8BL   Single Op LP   58,4662010-03-01 18:35:13
QRN hash was pretty bad on Friday night and I think it might have been
snow static (?). Pulling out stations under S5 was very tough. That meant
I wasn't able to work a lot of folks with low power and/or compromise
antennas. Worked a number of hours in the NAQP-RTTY Contest on Saturday
and that took time away from this Contest. Came back after it was over
and stopped at 400 Q's. The entire Band was filled with Contesters all the
way up to almost 2000 KHz.! The ragchewers were probably steaming!!
 
NI5T(@N5BG)   Multi-Op HP   100,1882010-03-01 18:35:55
Weather was favorable, No lightning this year. Noise level was great for this
contest. Our CQ 160 CW contest last month was hampered by an electrical NOISE
problem about 6 miles away which was ARCING and looked like a welding
operation. Power company fixed this after we took them by hand and showed the
problem to them. We missed our chief operator Milt N5IA as he wanted to
experience DX from the other end of the country. K1U in Maine was his project.
We are all looking forward to a larger TX antenna installation here by next
year. Only a single vertical. We do quite well with 16 Beverage antennas for
receiving. And our main competition in NM had a full FOUR SQUARE. As they say
NEXT YEAR.

Great contest a usual, but unfortunately we cannot take part in the contest as
we hope, we found a good numbers of damages to antennas and rotators after 2
big thunderstorm in Morocco this year.
So we preferred to fix antennas for upcoming wpx ssb and work to mantain the
towers and antennas almost ready.
The wheater was very bad during our stay, a lot of wind and always raining, we
put 2 beverages for EU and USA and on the European one we have for the first
part of both nights high static noise, I think on CT and on F the WX was very
bad also.
So our team was great and we had great time there, despite the bad contest
result.

Hey guys, thanks for this amazing contest. Thanks the OPs in US and GUS for good
ears (and antennas). I could increase the number of states to 4 states.
On Sunday afternoon and early evening we have had a "moderate" gale in this
area with gusts of wind about 120 km/h (74.5 m/ph).
Working with 100 watt and 150ft. Doublet, feeding point about 37ft high,

Hope to see you again (next weekend!)

Horrible. How is it possible to make 1.75m in CW and in identical contest just
by changing mode not even make 400k:)

We tried really hard to do our best and squeeze all out but that was all that
the propagation allowed. Basically no RUN US QSOs at all and we never got
spotted from NA although some guys were real strong at times - K1LZ and K3ZM
mostly.

Only pleasant moments in this torture were SU9HP, NP4A, PJ2T and KL1V (!!)
calling in. KL1V called in at 00.17z first morning hours before his sunset. I
am still not sure what happened and if I was dreaming!

The other amazing moment was calling and working HI3TEJ and V48M in a row 0028z
the second night when they both became audible just for a second never to be
heard again. HI3TEJ was booming in during CW contest and never heard us!

No more DXCC was ever heard.

Managed to achieve our best-ever score despite what I would describe as average
conditions, we were never able to get a run going to North America. First NA
contact was when we were called by W4MYA at 01.52 0n Saturday morning, but the
second night we were called by VE1ZZ at 22.00.

We had a new rx only 4-sq, but there was a big noise source to the west of us
so we did have difficulty hearing the weaker NA stations. Other than this
noise problem the 4-sq worked fantastically well. The weather was very wet here
so that may have made things worse.

TX antenna 60ft inverted-L
RX antennas K7TJR RX 4-sq and Wellbrook RX loop
FT1000MP


Great contest as always.

A bit of a disappointing result this time as we had hoped for at least 150 more
Q's.
Again the RX was much better than TX and we could heard 6 or 7 S/Ps more than
we could work. Those 2-wire Bevs worked great again.
The TX antenna remains the limiting factor, and I think I know what we need
change now in order to get a better result.
Nevertheless we had a great time !

TRX : FT-2000 + MK2 + GU73 HPA
RX ANT : two 2-wire Beverages, 200m each
TX ANT : 20m T-ANT
LOGGER : WT 4.4.0

I moved into a new QTH and just recently threw a wire out to the back corner of
the yard from an upstairs window, not sure of the length, about 80 or 90 feet.
I end fed the wire using an MFJ tuner and grounded it with the cold water pipe
in the bathroom. I was amazed it tuned up on 160 with 100w and no RF problems
in the shack. I did a quick hour of S/P and worked 13 states, even heard KP4,
XE2, and a couple of W6's.

Rig: IC-7000 100w
Ant: about 80 ft end fed wire, about 20 ft high at the feed point, sloping down
to 10 ft.

Just a low-key S&P effort this time. Band was noisy and signals seemed down here
with very little workable DX. Had a good time anyway!

Thanks for the Q's! 73 - Paul, K0PK

This was only a part time activity. As the other operator was not able to join
me I operated as SO. Due to a lot if other obligations and also the storm I was
not able to spend more hours in this contest.

Cu next year !

Strong winds, snow and ice storm claimed two of our three antennas.

Still had a good time.

After suffering for a long time with an electrical noise source we managed to
track it down to a 220KV power line some 5 miles away!
With the assistance of a local ham, the power company managed to rectify the
problem fairly quickly, for which we are grateful.

We made a decision now our noise source had disappeared to improve our beverage
receiving and distrubution system, unfortunately this wasn't ready for the CW
leg but a big effort was made to get it ready for SSB but it had not been
tested as much as we would have liked before hand.

We found the Conditions were good the first night with a steady stream of NA's
calling, not so good the second night but still a good number calling.

We ended up working just under 300 NA stations.

A surprise was our new beverage to south America, it was so quiet that we did
think it wasn't working properly but we worked quite a number of south
Americans including PY0F and several LU's which was great.

We had 221 DLs in the log, what would we do without them!!

Low Points were hearing a few states but not being able to work these, one
especially was W1CEM in KS who was very loud and just CQ'ing in our face even
after several attempts we missed KS.

High Points were the performance of our receiving system which seemed to work
well, also being called by VO1HP in the last few minutes of the contest for a
new mult NF.

Thanks to all who called and the hard work of the guys this end to get us ready
and also to those who travelled to be with us.

See you on the next one.

CQWW 160M SSB CONTEST POST FESTUM

Never before had a 160M vertical been erected and re-erected so many times,
and never before had it come down just as many times. Never before had so
much effort, money and time gone into one antenna, and never before had so
many engineering calculations proved to be seriously wrong for wind
survival. Never before had so grave miscalculations been experienced with
Atlantic wind forces. Never before had a highly expected operation been
conducted with so little, both emotionally and technically. At the last
minute, only a watery dipole was hoisted!

But never before had a World Record been achieved with the above script and
emotions, blessed with only fair radio conditions.

And in the end, was it fun? You bet!

Thanks to Pertti, OH2PM for joining me for this winning misadventure. One
different kind of scalp under our belts. Needless to say, new calculations
are underway - by a new engineering team. And the wreckage still lies on the
battlefield.

See you in the ARRL DX Contest.

Martti, OH2BH/CU2KG

Amazing !!!

First Top Band Contest from Africa, just unbelivable experience, even Murphy
visit me during second night, were the antenna match broke, and for 3 hours i
had fixed it in the middle of the night, into a cloud and without moon !!

Otherwise condition were pretty good, even a lot of noise to Europe were static
noise was very strong. USA beverage was more quite, but conditions were not as
the days before the contest, missed some easy state due QRM. The Highlight
moments were in the second sunrise night were FK8CP called me, and the VK6IR at
the sunset !

Thank's to everyone called me, see u in the ARRL Multi op.

Hello all,

Ran QRP this year again, most of my antennas were down due to the unusual
winter snowstorm we had this year. Took out almost all my HF wires. The W4TWW
inverted L was still up so I thought I would give the test a shot for a couple
of hours on Saturday evening. Naturally, Murphy came to visit, could not hear
anything on the L and the SWR was through the roof. Went out to investigate in
the dark muddy dog doo laden yard only to find out that my youngest lab did me
the favor of chewing my feedline in half! Did a quick splice(No solder, just
twist and electical tape) and was on the air. Managed to work a few stations,
many TNX once again go out for the Ops that take the time to listen for the
little guy. Had lots of fun and got to work a couple local club members (TNX
guys). Had a small opening to Europe Saturday evening, but did not get to work
any with such a disadvantage. Look forward to next year, lots of clear open
space in the yard since losing a few trees, time for a new wire antenna farm!


73,
Frank KG4IGC

This was our first team effort on a SSB 160m contest. It was a sort of
field-day
operation from a nice location at the Cape of San Antonio Lighthouse at the
verge of a 175meters high cliff with seawater 270 degrees around. We enjoyed
both good radio at night and nice sightseeing during the day in the
surrounding
natural park.

ANT 1 = VERTICAL 40M High with 70 Radials
ANT 2 = L VERTICAL with 70 Radials
SWL = Vertical K9AY for SWL.

A year several friends of Radio Club Henares have participated in this
interesting contest, we were advised of weather problems that would occur with
the storm of wind and water planned for that weekend. Anyway we decided to
install everything and try your luck, it made a hard mount the days before the
Contest and was finally installed our facility consisted of: Vertical 40m high
with 70 radials of 40m in length + L vertical inverted + SWL K9AY for . We must
say that the few hours we enjoyed our new full-size portrait was amazing (the
vertical was elevated latex balloons inflated with helium), with thunderous
signals and from the fourth minute of NA contest worked stations other stations
U.S. not yet received. Finally the wind could with all our installation (Winds
of 130km / h) and we were forced to leave the contest with barely 4 hours to
enjoy the first night ... before the weather nothing can be done and this is a
hobby. Special thanks to all colleagues who have helped us to mount this
facility: DH1TW, EA1JJ, EA1AR, EA1MU, EA1IP and EA5KM. The QSLs can be
requested through the "Online QSL Request" available on the Web of Radio Club
Henares: http://www.radioclubhenares.org/qslservice.php and will be returned
via bureau. 73s of:

Good: 2 day regional power outage made the band really quiet especially the
first night. I learned that my generator can go all night on one gas fill up
and does not generate QRN. I did have to turn off the well pump and oil burner
to keep low line voltage from tripping the amp.

Bad: The absence of QRN was wasted on poor propagation - no w6 w7 in the
log...a stark contrast to the CW version and ARRL weekend conditions.

Operated only on Saturday as had family plans on Friday evening. Worked most
states missing NC and KH6 (altho in this one Hawaii dx). Interesting note was
that the entire phone band was in play on Saturday evening..I had a good run on
1995! That's a first...

Antennas:

Equipment

Elecraft K2/100 w/ KAT100

Comments:

Although I have 160m WAS on CW, I figured I could fill in some missing
band-states by putting in a few hours. Put in a little more than an hour Friday
night, but it was late and I was already exhausted by a martial arts belt test
earlier. (I passed)

Only on briefly late Saturday morning, and didn't get a chance to get back on
Saturday night. Got up at 1000z Sunday looking for far-west multipliers.
Successfully found a number of stations, and even got to run for a while.

Best moment was finding KL7RA right at 1200z during sunrise. He responded on
the first call. Ten minutes later, when I tuned by, he was gone. KL7RA has
already confirmed the QSO on LoTW, so I didn't just imagine it.

This year, Murphy visited our contest site on Murphy Drive before we arrived.
First, a snowstorm forced us to delay our arrival at the site on Friday. Then,
upon arriving we discovered that ALL 3 of our transmit antennas were DOWN. We
use two slopers hung at the 200 foot level of the tower. We were able to
rebuild our NE sloper. However our SW sloper was tangled in the tower guy wires
at around 200 feet. We decided to utilize an existing second delta loop
reflector as our temporary SW transmit antenna. Our 3rd transmit antenna at the
site is a wire vertical dipole and it too was not repairable at the time. We had
no time to walk any of our beverages and it seemed that the NE one had issues
but it worked OK enough to march forward. With only 5 minutes to spare, we were
on the air at the start of the contest, although we were using compromised
antennas. Conditions were best Friday evening with many EU in the log. Saturday
evening was OK but not great. Even though we had a compromised antenna situation
at the site, we still managed to break our own record for score. It seems that
our team is getting better every year! Overall, this was one of the most fun
contests from the site (WYRS FM) that we share with the W2GD 160 contest crew.
TNX must go to WYRS for their continued support!
