Great to have 10 meters open up. Excellent signals into Arizona.

Very good band conditions, especially on 10m. Also very good turn out by those
excellent DL operators. Thanks for the Q's!

I was operating this and JARTS RTTY this weekend. In WAG I was playing with
N1MM, in JARTS I used WinTest - both shared same Microham Keyer :) Overall
propagation was so good that I didn't work WAG as much as I planned

10m was nicely open to DL when contest started. The best pileups I got on 40 m

Sure didn't expect 10 meters to be my biggest band but nice to see the band come
back. Thanks for all the QSOs.
AA8IA   SO Mixed LP   13,8602011-10-16 08:07:35

VE9AA   SO CW LP   70,0562011-10-16 08:08:28
A few minutes here and there. 100w to a 160m OCF dipole @ 25' (ugh)
Prop good on 15m. Terrible on 80m. Nonexistent on 160m
DL5L was MASSIVE on 10m. An honest to goodness 50/9 Saturday. WOW!!

Many none german stations called loosing me many contacts.
Great turnout from german stations, well done.
Enjoyable contest, I got a german station saying in J DOK but did not count
Nice to get all mults from here.
10m was just great could of stayed all day but needed other bands aswell.
Thanks to all those who called me with fantastic signals even with 100w and
nice to see some qrp 5w stations aswell.

K5LH   SO CW LP   37,1702011-10-16 08:31:39
Amazing openings on 10 and 15 meters. Lower bands seemed disturbed with much
flutter on signals. Never worked districts G, J and L. Otherwise great
participation and discipline. Thanks for the contacts.

Rig: Omni V (90 W), wire dipoles, Aetherlog for Mac.

VE1RGB   SO CW LP   152,7902011-10-16 08:37:49
Beat my previous best from 2005 which was 84K (and the Canadian record) by a
substantial amount.

I even had the fun of working DJ9DZ Vasily before the contest and we kinda
agreed to try for all bands, and we did it. The Q on 80M was conducted by ESP.
I'm sure he was as pleased as me!

K3 + P3 + two verticals + two wires

Very nice contest. First time I was serious. Thanks to all who worked my
signal. Please QSL direct or via LoTW. Danke.

I managed to work a fair number of multipliers on 10 and 15 in spite of the
pretty short skip distance between SE England and DL and lacking the beams and
power to attempt serious backscatter. K3, WinKeyer and WinTest were stable as
always. Antennas were very low-key. A temporary push-up GRP pole on the rear
lawn supported a Cushcraft D5 trap dipole for 10-15-20 only 5m up and an
inverted V for 40 with the apex at 7m up. An old low inverted-L was tuned to 80
- this antenna is literally invisible having disappeared into the suburban
greenery but LP to this antenna doesn't set the trees on fire (or the bands for
that matter). The old 1mm wire does tune and I can make qsos so I guess it is
still out there somewhere. It is quite satisfying to be able to have great fun
with such humble sky-wires. Almost all was S&P.

Thanks to KB1H for the use of his great station.

Before the start was a great day with the Barnstormer team on site-
KB1H, N1WK, NB1U, AA1CE, K1EBY, NR1X, and W1UJ.
-Raised 2/3 of one of the 80m verticals Hurricane Irene damage. No 80m in WAG
with compromised 4-square system.
-Raised/repaired the 40m EDZepp after Irene damage.
-Raised the 160m dipole after Irene damage.
-Antenna Launcher/Potato gun worth its weight in gold for these projects.
-Trussed the 3el full sized 40m
-Walked the beverages
-Carried new N1WK 6m amplifier power supply into Barn. (K1GX AA1CE Built)

For the WAG Contest;
-1:05 hours late start due to above projects.
-Made 6 QSOs on 10m SSB and decided that I was going to stick with CW.
-10m closed to DL early on Saturday at 86 QSOs. Shifted to Asia.
-10m was fantastic Sunday.
-Everything that called me was given a number and logged, even non-DL. I think
N1MM may have given those QSOs points. Last number given; 1061
-Took a break to go home from 01z-0835z
-Lots of typical errors and probable bad spots for K6JH and KB1S with short
runs of dupes.
-Really tried to work the 2nd radio hard; # band changes = 222
-Best single hour rate 102

We look forward to working the same German folks in the CQ SSB contest.

Great condx. It sure has been a long time since I was last called by W6 and W7
on 10m while running low power. Daytime OP hours were significantly reduced as
I had to play Soccer with my boys, wx simply was too good to stay inside. Maybe
I will manage a really serious approach next year.
DD8SM   SO Mixed HP   177,0712011-10-16 10:59:47
This was the first contest that I worked the whole time(24hrs) before my new
transceiver Kenwood (TS590). Just wanted to test my equipment to see if they
can handle the hard test.

Working conditions was very good at times.

Thanks to all that worked me. Hope to see you in the next contest.

DL3EBX   SO Mixed LP   28,6142011-10-16 11:19:41
Only abt 3h on the air due to lots of family committments.
Worked all QSOs with 100W (IC706) and a 20m wire. Nice to have some QSOs into
Stateside on 10m with this hardly existing antenna :-). 73 Frank

VE1ZA   SO Mixed QRP   38,2322011-10-16 17:21:48
Wonderful contest and great conditions for QRP on the high bands.
Conditions not so good for 40 and 80m for QRP. Wished I could have
operated more time on saturday morning.

Thanks to all that heard my QRP signal
N4CW   SO CW LP   110,2052011-10-16 18:01:51

What fun to work DL's on 10M again!!!

to Colorado. I never heard anyone on 80.

Only a part time effort with ForceBrutal-33 (FB-33 3 element triband antenna)
and a dipole for 40m and 80m. Had to close the station early. :(


DH4PSG   SO Mixed LP   176,3192011-10-17 02:40:05
That'S a contest with fun for a "little pistol" station. All bands were
workable. Thanks to picking me up to W6AFA, K7LR, HO1X on the higher bands -
and of course to the friends from RA-AS, too!
Working horse was 40m, from 20m to 10m I've to do mostly/only s&p, that's the
antenna situation!!
Thanks to all OPs with good ears (and good antennas).
After the contest is before the contest!

As always, a single target Eu country contest is an interesting challenge from
the Southwest Pacific. Score slightly down on last year due to missing a few
prime evening short path hours because of some important TV sport.
