I can not express the gratitude I feel towards station owner Tariq, N2QV, and Chief Station Engineer WU2X. I've known Scott, WU2X, for several years through the collaboration of 2X Arrays and Cycle 24 on the TX38 tribander that was designed specifically for the WRTC 2014 event. Scott's attention to detail on the TX38 tribander and his desire to make everything on that antenna as great as possible was a real indication to me that he was changing the game in triband antenna design. For the longest times, tribanders have had the reputation as an inferior antenna as compared to monobanders, and for good reason. Lossy traps and poor electrical design ended up in a very compromised antenna across the three major HF bands. Scott's use of custom software led him to design triband Yagis that in everyway are on par with monoband Yagis of the same boom length. What an incredible opportunity to get to use the N2QV station. It is the most efficient design I've ever seen with some incredible gain on 10-40 meters. Recent changes to the location of the radio shack allowed approximately 1500' of coax loss to be eliminated from the 4 high stack of 36' triband Yagis. This translated to around 3dB on 10 meters, 2 dB on 15 meters, and 1dB on 20 meters. During the fall season a new two high stack of 4 element 40 meter JK Grande beams were installed at 175' and 110'. N2QV and WU2X worked hard to add a few receive antennas including a custom triband vertical for the contest. They also installed a T vertical hung from some trees to use for the transmit antenna on 160 meters. So I knew going into the contest that there could be no excuses of being to far away from Europe (read, "in Arkansas") or not being loud enough. The contest went by in a blur. Maybe I will do a KQ2M style writeup on my website soon (www.zf2dx.com). I felt LOUD on all bands except 160. Anytime a band change was made an instant pileup ensued. Anytime I found a big pileup it was easily broken. At times it almost felt like cheating being so loud into Europe and always having a steady stream of callers. Going into the contest, my major concern was being on the right band at the right time. I soon realized that all I needed to do was follow the zone 16 stations. Wherever Russia was loudest, that was the band to be on. It was a nice surprise to be able to run JA on 40 meters and to also have some deep Asia stuff call me such as Zones 24, 26, and 28. Both Saturday and Sunday evening I was also able have a decent run of JA and Asia stations on 20 meters. I couldn't believe it when I found 3B9HA on the second radio on 40 meters at 2:30 PM local time. He had a big pile of EU stations, but after one call I was able to make it into his log. 160 meters was a struggle and I was getting beat out by zone 4 guys on a regular basis. I stuck with it and kept calling guys and finally the band improved just enough on Saturday night that I was able to get through to all of the big gun EU stations. I knew I'd be lagging behind the W1 guys on 160 but I was hoping that I could make up the multiplier difference across the other 5 bands. Thanks again to Tariq for the wonderful hospitality and such a pleasurable experience. More information on his station can be found on his QRZ page. It was great fun hanging out with WU2X before the contest and getting to do some antenna work with him. Both of these guys are great and I really hope I can have the experience of operating from this amazing station again. On another note, what an amazing score from ZF2MJ! I think it is really cool how he came out and detailed exactly how he prepared for and operated the contest. Definitely a game changer for the serious single op DX guys. Thanks for all of the Qs and moves. 73, Kevin N5DX Cabrillo Statistics (Version 10g) by K5KA & N6TV http://bit.ly/cabstat CALLSIGN: N5DX CONTEST: CQ-WW-CW CATEGORY-OPERATOR: SINGLE-OP CATEGORY-TRANSMITTER: ONE OPERATORS: N5DX --> TO8M has an unknown country prefix. --> TO4GU has an unknown country prefix. --> TO8M has an unknown country prefix. --> TO4GU has an unknown country prefix. --> TO4GU has an unknown country prefix. --> TO8M has an unknown country prefix. --> TO4GU has an unknown country prefix. --> TO8M has an unknown country prefix. --> TO8M has an unknown country prefix. -------------- Q S O R a t e S u m m a r y --------------------- Hour 160 80 40 20 15 10 Rate Total Pct -------------------------------------------------------------------- 0000 0 0 133 17 0 0 150 150 2.9 0100 0 11 103 17 0 0 131 281 5.4 0200 1 64 67 0 0 0 132 413 8.0 0300 0 105 36 0 0 0 141 554 10.7 0400 9 77 9 0 0 0 95 649 12.6 0500 11 73 20 0 0 0 104 753 14.6 0600 3 102 12 0 0 0 117 870 16.9 0700 5 0 166 0 0 0 171 1041 20.2 0800 1 9 133 0 0 0 143 1184 23.0 0900 1 9 102 0 0 0 112 1296 25.1 1000 0 2 64 0 0 0 66 1362 26.4 1100 0 0 48 30 1 0 79 1441 27.9 1200 0 0 0 118 53 0 171 1612 31.3 1300 0 0 0 1 185 0 186 1798 34.9 1400 0 0 0 0 133 32 165 1963 38.1 1500 0 0 0 0 13 64 77 2040 39.6 1600 0 0 0 2 119 24 145 2185 42.4 1700 0 0 0 116 50 2 168 2353 45.6 1800 0 0 0 202 0 0 202 2555 49.5 1900 0 0 11 95 8 3 117 2672 51.8 2000 0 0 139 0 6 3 148 2820 54.7 2100 0 0 138 4 8 0 150 2970 57.6 2200 0 0 69 15 5 0 89 3059 59.3 2300 0 55 3 20 0 0 78 3137 60.8 0000 0 9 10 52 0 0 71 3208 62.2 0100 2 71 6 5 0 0 84 3292 63.8 0200 0 63 7 0 0 0 70 3362 65.2 0300 8 24 11 0 0 0 43 3405 66.0 0400 0 11 82 0 0 0 93 3498 67.8 0500 17 5 15 0 0 0 37 3535 68.5 0600 11 21 60 0 0 0 92 3627 70.3 0700 2 1 65 0 0 0 68 3695 71.7 0800 1 5 43 0 0 0 49 3744 72.6 0900 2 5 40 5 0 0 52 3796 73.6 1000 1 5 20 0 0 0 26 3822 74.1 1100 0 2 8 58 0 0 68 3890 75.4 1200 0 0 1 61 80 0 142 4032 78.2 1300 0 0 0 0 170 0 170 4202 81.5 1400 0 0 0 3 122 0 125 4327 83.9 1500 0 0 0 0 74 3 77 4404 85.4 1600 0 0 0 65 24 0 89 4493 87.1 1700 0 0 0 151 1 0 152 4645 90.1 1800 0 0 0 115 3 1 119 4764 92.4 1900 0 0 4 59 8 3 74 4838 93.8 2000 0 0 61 0 8 0 69 4907 95.2 2100 0 0 100 5 0 0 105 5012 97.2 2200 0 0 50 22 0 0 72 5084 98.6 2300 0 2 39 31 0 0 72 5156 100.0 ------------------------------------------------------ Total 75 731 1875 1270 1071 135 5157 Gross QSOs=5274 Dupes=117 Net QSOs=5157 Unique callsigns worked = 3492 The best 60 minute rate was 202/hour from 1757 to 1856 The best 30 minute rate was 218/hour from 1809 to 1838 The best 10 minute rate was 240/hour from 1813 to 1822 The best 1 minute rates were: 5 QSOs/minute 30 times. 4 QSOs/minute 222 times. 3 QSOs/minute 610 times. 2 QSOs/minute 766 times. 1 QSOs/minute 756 times.
