I was not really planning a serious effort in the ARRL 10 meter contest this past weekend because of other engagements. But I did make a few contacts in the test for fun on Saturday logging V51 and a few Europeans via scatter. When I realized that the band wouldn’t open, I saved my energy for
The annual ARRL 160 meter contest was a success last year as SEØX won the #1 SM SOHP award. This year the goal was to improve the score from last year and if possible defend my #1 position, but that might be a tough task if more logs are submitted this year. This year I
