A giant thank you to Tariq, N2QV, and Scott, WU2X, for once again allowing me to plug my headphones into the N2QV station and experience the surreal world of contesting from a mega station on the east coast of the United States. Operating remote is truly a game changer and it was great to be able to be competitive in a DX contest while enjoying the comforts of home. During ARRL CW contest I used a mouse to tune the second radio. Since then WU2X has developed the Remote Radio Link (RRL) software. This software allowed me to use a TS 590S here in Arkansas to control a TS 590SG at the N2QV station for the second radio. Rig control between the two locations is accomplished exclusively through software (no external boxes are needed). Scott put a lot of work into the RRL software and it worked great throughout the contest. The run radio was a K3 utilizing the Remote Rig software. I'm very grateful that N2QV was able to get all of the receive antennas operational before the contest. The unique station design at N2QV consists of a single SPE Expert amplifier that is used for both radios. This setup makes it critical to have receive radios for two radio operation. Tariq was able to check out the two beverages and the single vertical antenna for the high bands and ensure that they were working properly. The majority of big gun European signals on 20 meters peaked well over S9 on the receive vertical! I'm continually amazed at the signal strength and quantity of signals from Europe. Absolutely zero QSB on signals across all bands. Including stations who were nearly inaudible. 160: My lone contact was a U.S. station but he was a new prefix. 80: As is usually the case in this contest all of the activity occurred during the second night. Some monster signals well over S9 from Europe, but several stations were having trouble hearing me.... hhmmmm. 40: 40 sounded great both nights with no QRN. Amazing to have European stations calling in as much as 4 hours past their sunrise. 20: This felt like a tough band as there were several times when I heard the Boston stations with big pileups which I was unable to generate. However, I'm not complaining as the QSO count here turned out to be competitive. Not much activity from JA and Asia. 15: Better on Sunday than Saturday but I was still able to stir up short EU runs on Saturday. Sunday sounded great and the band opened early but it shut really hard around 11:00 eastern time. So much so that it sounded like we had experienced a flare. Probably the highlight of the weekend was the last 1.5 hours of the contest when I was finally able to get a JA run going. I'm guessing that between the JA stations and west coast U.S. that I made 40 mults during this stint. 10: No EU! It was fun hunting for my dad, ZF2ET. He used a single 14AVQ vertical mounted directly on the water. I was able to get the clean sweep (in this case contacts on 10-40 meters) with our final contact on 10 meters on Sunday. I'm looking forward to getting back to Cayman someday and operating as ZF9DX from Cayman Brac. Soon come. 73 Kevin N5DX Cabrillo Statistics (Version 10g) by K5KA & N6TV http://bit.ly/cabstat CALLSIGN: N2QV CONTEST: CQ-WPX-CW CATEGORY-OPERATOR: SINGLE-OP CATEGORY-TRANSMITTER: ONE OPERATORS: N5DX -------------- 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 0 135 12 0 0 147 147 4.5 0100 0 1 115 10 1 0 127 274 8.5 0200 0 13 110 2 0 0 125 399 12.3 0300 0 17 84 4 0 0 105 504 15.6 0400 0 0 87 15 0 0 102 606 18.7 0500 0 0 86 10 0 0 96 702 21.7 0600 0 0 26 0 0 0 26 728 22.5 0700 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 728 22.5 0800 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 728 22.5 0900 0 0 16 24 0 0 40 768 23.7 1000 0 0 7 124 0 0 131 899 27.8 1100 0 0 2 119 1 0 122 1021 31.6 1200 0 0 0 108 2 0 110 1131 35.0 1300 0 0 0 78 6 0 84 1215 37.5 1400 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1215 37.5 1500 0 0 0 15 34 0 49 1264 39.1 1600 0 0 0 22 65 0 87 1351 41.7 1700 0 0 0 13 27 0 40 1391 43.0 1800 0 0 0 8 0 2 10 1401 43.3 1900 0 0 0 41 34 5 80 1481 45.8 2000 0 0 0 50 53 0 103 1584 48.9 2100 0 0 0 87 16 0 103 1687 52.1 2200 0 0 1 92 9 2 104 1791 55.3 2300 0 0 72 23 4 0 99 1890 58.4 0000 0 2 77 13 0 0 92 1982 61.2 0100 0 42 7 14 2 0 65 2047 63.3 0200 1 63 12 2 1 0 79 2126 65.7 0300 0 9 60 9 0 0 78 2204 68.1 0400 0 4 48 17 0 0 69 2273 70.2 0500 0 0 64 9 0 0 73 2346 72.5 0600 0 3 30 3 0 0 36 2382 73.6 0700 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2382 73.6 0800 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2382 73.6 0900 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2382 73.6 1000 0 0 0 59 0 0 59 2441 75.4 1100 0 0 0 45 21 0 66 2507 77.5 1200 0 0 0 16 73 0 89 2596 80.2 1300 0 0 0 11 73 5 89 2685 83.0 1400 0 0 0 9 49 15 73 2758 85.2 1500 0 0 0 6 40 0 46 2804 86.7 1600 0 0 0 1 11 0 12 2816 87.0 1700 0 0 0 16 45 6 67 2883 89.1 1800 0 0 0 4 15 0 19 2902 89.7 1900 0 0 0 39 1 0 40 2942 90.9 2000 0 0 0 71 8 3 82 3024 93.4 2100 0 0 0 65 0 0 65 3089 95.5 2200 0 0 1 39 33 1 74 3163 97.7 2300 0 0 3 1 69 0 73 3236 100.0 ------------------------------------------------------ Total 1 154 1043 1306 693 39 3236 Gross QSOs=3284 Dupes=48 Net QSOs=3236 Unique callsigns worked = 2322 The best 60 minute rate was 149/hour from 0003 to 0102 The best 30 minute rate was 160/hour from 0003 to 0032 The best 10 minute rate was 180/hour from 0011 to 0020 The best 1 minute rates were: 4 QSOs/minute 22 times. 3 QSOs/minute 255 times. 2 QSOs/minute 789 times. 1 QSOs/minute 805 times.
