Another great party !

I had a chance to be on the air for few hours, but I had a great time.
For some reasons (Propagation I guess) I did not hear japanese stations.
We had also "opportunity" to work some station who were participating
of YUDX Contest at the same time.

My working conditions:
Kenwood TS 590
Amp Supply LK 800C (1KW)
Antenna: Dipole x Dipole (stacked)

Work PX2X in all contests !

This has always been one of my favorite contests in which to participate. Very
low key and lots of good operators. This my third or fourth year, can't
remember, but always a lot of fun. Thanks to all for the QSO and cheers from

Great to hear such activity and the openings were most interesting. This was a
true educational experience. Limited time this run due to other
responsibilities. Look forward to the next go around.

QSO points: 2143

First time in this contest and probably my last. Propagation on the ZL-SA path
is only any good for short periods. SA stations were very hard to find and many
were weak. Obviously most SA stations with beams were aiming North for W/VE or
North East for Europe. ZL is off the back of their beams and even with a kW and
a yagi I could not get replies from many SA stations.

Result was only 46 SA mults from 50 contacts with 44 stations. Heck I worked 32

Got heaps of calls from stations who were probably not in the contest and
probably won't send logs in and who probably won't appear in the minimum of
five received logs.

Oh well ce la vie.

Lot of contests this weekend but bad luck with BY. Also YUDXC on high bands is
not fun as we are too close. So I was DX-er chasing mults and SA prefixes. It
was fun with occasional OC long path. Obrigado Brazil with a lot of fancy

A couple hours each morning plus some other activity in afternoons.

15M was just superbly good condition. In addition to expected SA and EU
openings, both mornings I had openings to JA/OC/AS. Wow!!!

This is my favorite contest, many thanks to CWJT, which I am
proud to be a member (#604), what a wonderful group!!! Lots
of participation. Many thanks to all those who heard me
with my OCF dipole and trusty K3 @100W. The bands this year
were not great but lots of Member Stations make things a lot
of fun!! Many thanks to CWJT !!!! 73/88 de K1QO (Ann)

This contest gets better every year. Wish I would have been able to put in more
time - especially on the lower bands. Local thunderstorms and social
commitments prevented that. Somehow I lost my original log but was able to
restore most of it. Think I'm missing a few QSOs and a multiplier or two worked
at the end.
K5YAA   SOAB HP   27,9622015-04-20 15:54:48
The score, prefixes and country count are all incorrect as N1MM+ would not allow
logging anything but NA and SA. I will let the log checkers figure out the
score. Also, my N1MM+ outputs a Cabrillo 2.0 (maybe I need to update it) and I
had to do a manual thing in the webform to get the log accepted. Lot's of work
but the organizers went to so much trouble with their mail announcement I
figured they were due some participation. Fairly good activity in the MM test.

Bands were fair but storms kept the 40 meter action minimized with some pretty
strong static crashes.

Thanks to the organizers.

Many thanks to the Alto da Serra Contest group for letting me play their great
station. No man made noise and thankfully very little QRN during the weekend.
And to those I worked, thank you for the QSOs

IC756Pro, Alpha 91b, TH6DXX, dipole. Thanks for all QSOs. Very enjoyable
contest with fair conditions on all bands 40-10. Heard no contest activity on
80M. Look for me and KU8E in FL QSO Party this weekend as W4AN/M. 73, John,

This was a Hotel California experience for me. Once I got in I couldn't get out.
Luckily, the contest ended and I wasn't doomed to wander an infinite hall of
mirrors. I worked a lot in the yard and garden during the weekend, trading off
periodically for some radio. It was a nice mix.

The 40-10m bands were open but conditions were less than ideal. I struggled and
so did others. Luckily the exchange is simple with a few interesting twists,
like C, M, Q and Y. I'm glad it isn't a serial number contest.

I've come to be curious about how many ops are using code readers in contests
and otherwise. That would explain some of the persistent problems certain
stations have copying calls. I experimented a bit with code readers and the
result was I promptly downloaded Morse Runner for practice and took inspiration
from John Henry, the steel drivin' man. The difference is I'm still alive after
whuppin' the machine.

This is a nice contest and I hope it continues to prosper.

Ken, AB1J

Radio: Elecraft K-2, 5 Watts


10-15-20 3 element SteppIR up 10 Meters
40 Butternut HF-2V Vertical with 3 radials
40 DX-LB trap antenna up 10 Meters

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of activity this contest has now! I
heard major stations calling "CQ MM" like A65CA and A45XR!

My best QSOs were:

15 Meters: VO2NS (WAZ Zone 2), IS, LX, BY, 4L8, and 5B
20 Meters: TX5P (Clipperton Isl), FK8

This contest was a lot of fun and I hope to spend more op time in it next year!
Many thanks to the contest organizers!
