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!
