ARRL SSB DX INT Notes When I was able to clear most of my free time in the weekend (couldn’t move work), I planned to make a big effort on this contest. Using K6TU’s excellent propagation prediction software, I got my work plan together, and really was pretty happy with how it came out. (I really enjoy doing prop forecasting, so that’s part of the fun of a contest for me) On Friday night, I got things started with a total flop. Conditions were HORRIBLE, I worked for 40 minutes, and had one contact… talk about disheartening, so I decided to get some sleep and try again in the morning, hoping that things picked up. My decision was rewarded, when I started operating again on Saturday morning, the bands were perking along nicely. Early on it was a lot of Caribbean and South / Central American countries, primarily on 20, but later 15 started to take off in a big way As the day progressed, the bands opened up more and more and I was able to work some areas that I have NEVER worked before, I worked Tonga and Pitcairn for ATNO, as well as Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand which are rarely heard (at least by me) here. All in all for a disappointing start, things ended up quite nicely, and I was very happy with the results.
