WPX CW has come and gone and I guess I wasn’t as enthusiastic as I thought I would be. Friday nght conditions actually seemed pretty good and I was able go get about 150 Qs on 15, 20 and 40 before I crashed at about 10:30. I should have stayed up and cranked out more of those 6 pointers on 40. Saturday was not good here at all… so I  spend most of the day working outside and only occasionally dropping in to the shack to see what was happening. All in all, I put about 11 hours in the chair, virtually all S&P. My heart simply wasn’t in it.

A good thing happened though… Sunday afternoon I worked HI3TEJ on6 meter CW and heard several mid-Atlantic and southern states working southern Europe on 6m.

Here is the result of my efforts. I operated SOAB Assisted HP.

Band    QSOs    Pts  WPX
3.5      13      21    7

  1. Ken,

    I guess our efforts were comparable, comparing time in chair and scores. I guess I did okay even without the RI gain – oh yeah, that doesn’t count in this contest! Any way, I was very happy with the outcome. I worked 10 new entities on 40, so my count is now down to 10 to go. I’ll have to start camping out on 40 with Andy’s DX announcements, and I hope to get DXCC-40CW endorsement before the fall season begins. Then it will be back to 160.
    6-meters was open even into the evening yesterday! I also was listening on 10-FM after the contest. There was quite a bit of activity. Better days are coming for sure!

    73, Mike, K1DM
