Just yesterday I saw the published results of the ARRL 10 completion that was held in December 2011. It reminded me how fortunate I was to be able take part in that contest. Conditions were excellent and the contest statistics reveal the same.
I was hoping that with this weekend’s CQ-WPX-CW contest would have reasonable condition prevailing, but it does not seem to be the case. I decided I wanted to use 10m only during this contest to boost my 10m log as far as possible, before, dare I say the down turn of the solar cycle commences.
Propagation seems very subdued with low levels of activity on 10m.
One big highlight was working OM Ivor VR2ZQZ/P (once again). Have a look at QRZ.com and you will understand. This is amateur radio at its best. I admire the spirit and tenacity of these individuals in our hobby.
