Earlier this month I was logging more than one thousand contacts in the IARU HF contest using an SDR transceiver. In this blog post I will share my experiences of this modern approach to contesting.
The IARU HF Contest this past year was a lot of fun despite the bad band conditions. More than 1000 QSOs where logged in 22 hours of operating time. Here is a short summary with results.
This is a grim example how to keep your competition on a distance! I won’t mention calls, but this screenshot is from the IARU HF contest this past weekend and this is a HQ station. If you look closely to the waterfall display you notice the splatter lines at least 30 kHz down.
