Again confirms, the WPX contest is for the local realities best race format. But much from the beginning…
Preparing for the contest consists of several stages, Najma ked ide the contest, who previously operator, or. category - that I - still did not go and does not experience. So, study the available logs, statistics and orientation in the actual conditions of signal propagation. And all the power napasovať, timeout and technology capabilities and operator. It sounds like vysokoodborná matter? Yes, This is Ted, Bet!
I like long races, which place demands on mental and physical endurance Makeover. you say, What is it 30 hours? Project the it into the working week - how do you manage to work off for two days after fifteen hours? select those 30 so 48 hours is therefore difficult - attention must be paid to a person as well as map out breaks, so not suffered scores. Choosing the wrong time easily come to open one zone, and so on valuable points and multipliers.
idem SOAB LP assisted s SO2R a remote station. Technically clever solution enabling be (almost simultaneously) the two bands simultaneously. Angry local antenna, Diamond W-8010. PSV is 40 m, 20m and 15 m unusually high. Remote station also works perfectly.
Saturday's propagation conditions on the upper bands - disappointment. Toľkoočakávaní Japanese has happened… Thus, they can not help it (perhaps, hi). Europe, however, the WPX-e relatively rich multiplier, virtually every other connection is a multiplier. Afternoon occur station on the other side of the Atlantic, and each, Viera started which has earned thanks DX spot. Sunday propagation conditions are much better! It still is not perfect, In VE7CC software shines red "Minor blackouts", the email comes a warning about Aurore… But even so it looks interesting, saves JM1, JR3, BA2, BA7, Jal, RW0, JF2, JG3 - multiplier. In the afternoon, I found improvements in PSV at the local antenna for 40 meters and then there zobem connection for connection. Although they are just common ones, but thanks to bonus points attractive. And since it is SO2R mode, really nothing not spend, only I am I getting!
Before the race was estimated at 750 connections and millions of points, 30h after operation in the log 837 connection and 1.34-million pixels. TNX for great fun and I look forward to sight in the other races RTTY!
