W1WBB

Yes…now active on LoTW here!  Hooray!!  Have BEGUN to upload older contest logs as time permits.

As for this year’s CQ WPX CW contest I had VERY little op-time available…and only later on in evenings due to family visiting all weekend.  Checked the WPX website Searchable Score Database for my planned op category “All Years” W1-area high score, set a goal and used it for motivation…it worked!  Had fun just operating on 40m with my nighttime limitation as SOLP(A) 40m (Triband/Wires).

A post-Memorial Day “Thank You” to all our Veterans…I enjoyed spending Sunday with family at Battleship Cove, Fall River, MA.

  1. Bill,

    Good job! And, thanks for the Q. For some reason, you were really weak here. I must have been of the end of your dipole, or something. It was probably band conditions. You were the only CTRI member that I heard or worked. I was amazed at the number of Europeans that I was able to work on 15 and 20 off the back of my fixed tribander. It’s still pointed west from NEQP. I’m sure it’s front/back isn’t all that great, which is typical for a small short Yagi. Anyway, good job. I am sure there are more scores. But it’s evident that having Memorial Day weekend conflicting with WPX was a major compromise.

  2. Congratulations, Bill, on getting yourself set up on LotW. Actually, I noticed that yesterday when I went to the LotW web site and glanced ar my Recent QSLs and noticed a bunch of W1WBB QSOs, but it didn’t sink in that these were your first uploads.

    Sorry we didn’t cross paths on WPX last weekend. I’m pretty sure I would have heard you even off the end of your wire :-)).

    73,
