As the 2018 IARU HF Championship was chosen as the arena for WRTC activity was high this summer contest weekend. I decided to kick out the K3/TS-590 combo and go all SDR in SO2R configuration. Propagation was also helpful, especially on low bands. Read the full writeup of the IARU HF Championship weekend at SE0X here.
Rewiring the station for IARU HF Championship. This year I am going to enter the Single Operator Unlimited CW High Power category with the goal so set a decent record. The station will be using only SDR, Software Defined Radio equipment, and at this moment preparation is in full force.
This morning a nice surprise appeared in the mail. It seems like I had the highest combined CW + SSB score in SOAB HP Unassisted in the Scandinavian Activity Contest (SAC). Not an official category, but very nice plack för the wall. Thanks to the sponsor SM3EVR Tord Julander!
