SB3X and IOTA contest

Due to some logistical issues we participated in this years IOTA contest from Klösan Island (still EU-087) instead of the previous announced operation from Brämön. In total I made 2321 QSO’s during my stay at Klösan. About 650 of these was made during the constest.

All QSO’s is now uploaded to LoTW. QSL’s will be printed and distributed during autumn.

Club Log’s OQRS system can be used to request QSL’s.

My brother, SAØBVX, was also active in the contest, but with the SD3W call. His QSO will also be uploaded to LoTW as soon as he get’s his account.

IARU HF Chamionship

I participated in this years IARU HF Championship contest as SB3X. The result was modest, to say the least. But I blame the sun… A huge flare on thursday made the conditions very bad for us here up in the north. For sure, the sun is not the contesters best friend… At least not on these frequencies.

Anyway, it was fun to do this contest. The first hour was very hectic. About 180 Q’s on 10m. Not that many multipliers though.

Equipment: Elecraft K3, Expert 1K-FA and a Spiderbeam

In all I made about 640 QSO’s and got in a bit over 200K points.

Now, let’s reload for the IOTA contest in two weeks!
