Station: Elecraft K3/100 @100W. F-12 C3 @64', 80/40 Fan Dipole E/W @50' using WriteLog V12.13B, Packet Cluster, RBN, and VOACAP. Last year I operated part-time and QRP and also in the other two QPs this weekend. That diluted my effort and I chose to ONLY work 7QP this year. Conditions early in the day were pretty poor, got better in late afternoon. Used "Directional Calling" to attract stations to contact. Sixteen Hams, 12 who are Extra-class and three who are very experienced operators called me when I was either saying "7 Call Area Only" on SSB or "W7 KN" on CW. They all were NOT logged, are on tape, and need to find ELMER that will teach them not to call when someone is making directional calls. On the other hand, only 7 attempts to "dupe" me showed that discipline in the 7-Land is better on dupes than some other parts of the radio world. Late afternoon gave up on CW because the CW spectrum was a lot like the "CWO*" with people banging away, moving on top of you, and in other words being lids. Most of these were obviously HP East Coast and Midwest stations, that "could" hear me but did not care ... Contest University should work on that hammer technique to try and alleviate the bedlam mode so many use. *I resigned from CW Ops for this reason last year. Fun event, nonetheless, and I hope we can get the other outfits to pick other times in coordination with other QPs to enhance availability and time share.
