Well gang, that was fun. I was involved with the Angel Ride Fund raising bicycle tour this weekend, so I didn’t have lots of time to throw at the contest. My goal was to advance my DXCC entity list for 40 meters. I spent some time operating on Friday evening, Saturday evening, and Sunday afternoon after I got home. I managed to get in just under 11 hours in the chair (10.8 hour). I used assisted category, and also was running about 500 watts using my refurbished SB-201 that I got from Ernie’s estate. He would be proud. I also have got my QSK working the way I want it. So in my view it was a fun effort, and I think I am much closer to DXCC CW on 40 now. I will find that out in the next few days.
Here’s how it come out:
