I’m not a lover of phone contesting; I spent enough time in this event to reaffirm my dislike of the mode. My “high power” is not that high (500 watts), my antennas don’t play particularly well on phone (my G5RV was totally resistant to operation on 40-meter SSB this time, providing SWRs that seemed beyond the capability of the tuner), and I was not “loud.” I have only wire antennas on the low bands, so I can’t really create a “big” signal there. That’s usually not a problem when I’m chasing DX, but in a phone DX contest, the effect is frustration. Nevertheless, I had some fun in the three hours I spent in this one. Working P40L on three bands and V26K on two was a plus. Granted, I only added one entity to my total for the CQ DX Marathon, but I thought 53 unique countries in my 68 multipliers in those three hours was a decent result. To all of those who could actually hear me in the fray, thanks for the QSOs! Rig: Elecraft K3 w/P3 & KPA500 500 watts Antennas: 204-ft G5RV, 3 ele quad Software: RUMlogNG (3.10.1) by DL2RUM
