A rather lame effort on my part. Had several family time conflicts, but the
main problem was I had to use a new logger for this contest. My usual contest
logger is WriteLog, but there is no WL contest module for CQMM. Downloaded and
installed N1MM as I was told it had a CQMM module. Got the interfacing done ok
and had time to make one quick trip through the Quick Start instructions before
the contest.

My apologies to all those whose exchanges I botched up whule trying to learn
how to use the ESM feature. Only real problems with N1MM other than my
ignorance of most of the features was when I turned on Record QSOs. In short
order N1MM crashed not once, but twice. Fortunately I didn't lose any calls.
A quick seach of the Help manual revealed a FAQ about this problem, but in
relation to using MMTTY and recording RTTY QSOs. Apparently the problem exists
for CW QSOs as well. Once I turned off the Record QSOs option no further

Well, now to figure out how to export the adif and Cabrillo files and then set
aside ample time to read the manual and experiment with the bells and whistles
so I won't be such a novice next time around.

Simplemente espectacular, felicito a toda la organizacion y a mi amigo Edson
PY4WAS, este fue un largo sueño realizado con mucho esfuerzo.
Gran cantidad de paises de todo el mundo todos los continentes activos con gran
actividad desde USA y EU,los felicito a todos por haber estado presente en esta
edicion especial.
Condiciones muy buenas en 10 y 15 mts especialmente, algo pobre LF en estas
latitudes, pero no se noto por la cantidad de gente activa y el entusiamo que
pusieron todos.

Thanks again Mamiro, Py2DM for hosting me and the food you brought "Bife
Esquesito". Plenty of various Murphys, but had fun. Thanks for all QSOs and
thanks to Luc, PY8AZT for the propagation analyzis which was quite reliable.

Happy to give out some 10-point QRP contacts in the limited time that I had
available to operate.

Best DX was AO8WRD (EA8) on 20. Worked 7 CWJF member stations.

First participation. Very much fun! Hpe all enjoy like myself. Looking forward
for 2012 edition already.

Nice to get a handful on 10M. Didn't hear much on 40M and even less on 80M, so
lots of super-sized points were left on the table for lack of interest. Only
80M Q was with PX2W, who moved me down from 40M late Saturday evening.

With flux at 119, 15M was better than 20M, even to Europe.

Great to see this become a WW event. That made scores rise much faster than
last year. When word spreads about this one, I can see activity building very

Thanks for the Qs. If you didn't get into this one, it's great fun. Mark it
down for next year.

Great new WW contest! Hope it is continued next year. Band conditions were very
good on 15m but local storms Saturday made 20 - 80m useless.
Thanks for all of the Q's.

I got into this contest because I just wanted something to do. My normal
contest program did not have a module for it so I used one that I was not
totally comfortable with. I did some S&P and also called CQ. I had a good
time, and hope that my usual contest program will support this contest in the
future. It was an on/off 3 hour adventure, but it was fun.

I have not entered this contest for a couple years. I wanted to convert to the
N1MM contest logger, and this seemed to be a good contest to try it out. So I
downloaded N1MM on Thursday evening. We had one of our grandsons for the day on
Friday, so I had to wait until 5 PM on Friday to familiarize myself with N1MM.
Fortunately the contest didn't start until Saturday AM!

Like any new logging program, it takes some getting used to. But it is a good
program and has some advantages and conveniences over the Writelog program.
Seems like I should be paying more for it than I paid for Writelog, but it is
totally free.

This year the Manchester Mineira contest allowed the participants to work
stations outside of North and South America. For me that provided for a rather
nice increase in my score from several years ago. It is easy to work someone
outside the contest because the exchange for most of the stations you work
outside the contest is simply the continent. And N1MM even fills that in for
you. And there was a nice opening into Eastern Europe late Saturday night that
got me a few extra DXCC multipliers.

It was fun and it was nice to be able to give out 10 points Qs to people as a
QRP station. I had about 20 (of 142 Qs) stations answer my CQs including a
couple of JAs who seemed to be familiar with the exchange.

My best Q was AO8WRD on 7 MHz with 5 watts and an HF-2V with 3 ground radials!

Having a logger that covers this contest certainly makes it a lot more fun!

Nice issue of CQMM Contest. Very pleasant to join it. Had fun a lot.
P43E   SOAB LP   124,2462011-04-18 18:54:08
I enjoyed the contest very much, and it's the first contest I have worked after
the rotor was fixed. Definetely a lot of fun, and with the rotor working, it
makes a big difference. Due to some computer glitches, I had to stop around
12:30Z Sunday, and install the software on the desktop as the laptop kept
freezing, and would not read the radio any longer after 5 reboots. Murphy is
also part of the game. Nonetheless, this contest is definetely a lot of fun,
and now that it is a Worldwide event, even more so. For most people I was a
multiplier (P4) and bonus points (YL). 73, 88, and see you in 2012. Emily

Well, a vast improvement in score for this one, due to greatly improved
conditions resulting in almost the same number of Q's, 22 this year as compared
to 21 last year, but many more mults and QSO Pts for the effort. By the time my
score is run through their scoring program it may be better because I think I
missed some special category indicators, CWJF members, QRP, Club Groups and
YL's, which would have made those QSO's worth 10 points each. I did count the 2
I did copy after I reallized what the extra letter added to the SA designated.
It made for a fun contest. Ithink I'll put a bigger effort into it next year. I
was fairly distracted also trying to pick up Q's in the Michigan and Ontario QSO
Parties. I also tried to pay special attention to the peak propagation times for
4X4 in the Holyland DX Contest, but was totally unsuccessful in finding any of
those. I heard a few KB'ers on the air, but it looks like a great number were
at the DX Convention down in Visalia. Bert, K6CSL
