CQ-WW-CW contest 2012
I have been reading a few of the CQ-WW-CW reviews on the various blog sites and I was most impressed at their results they achieved.
I was pretty tied up with work at the moment and only a few hours on Sunday to take part.
The graph below says it all…..
Even with this dismal attempt I managed to work 3 all time new DXCC entities and 5 new entities on 10m.
I am looking forward to putting in a serious effort next year. Not having great antennas I might have to limit myself to a single band yet again. I must ensure that I am ready with at least one half decent antenna for either 20, 15 or 10m.
There is something very special about CW contests……
This is the first opportunity to put my new Elecraft K3 and KPA-500 through their paces. I think I can honestly say the performance is simply amazing. It has exceeded all my expectations in every regard. The second receiver (Sub) is such a powerful tool. I hope to write something about that soon. It gives us such a huge advantage during split operation that I think once others realize it, it might get banned.
