Conditions were down there with the worst we’ve seen in a long time, turning the SP International DX and BARTG 75 RTTY contests into mostly domestic affairs. From here in VE7, continent multipliers were very scarce in both contests. Didn't hear anything from OC, AS or AF in either RTTY test this weekend. Things seemed marginally better on Sunday than they were on Saturday (in the SPDX I worked an EA through QSB on Saturday around the aurora, but on Sunday in BARTG I somehow managed 9A1 directly through the middle of a raging auroral zone). The downturn in radio activity allowed me a rainy spring weekend to continue work on the new contesting-focused podcast, Zone Zero, which launched last week at It’s the latest layer of the casual contester’s notebook I’ve been keeping over the past 15 years or so. Now we look ahead to a series of QSO parties while we await CQ WPX CW in late May. That one will be a real trial of patience if this weekend’s conditions repeat a month from now. 73, -- Bud VA7ST Zone Zero contesting podcast |
