TBDC Pre-Stew Contest Soapbox

Stew Perry Topband Distance Challenge is one of the few contest where distance worked translates to scores. This together with the challenge of digging stations out of the noise is what makes 160 meter contests attractive to me. Here is the update from te 2019 edition of the “pre-Stew” contest.

CQ160 SSB Update

The final result for the weekend ended up at 340 contacts worked in 39 DXCC and 2 US states (ME and MA) and one Canadian province (POI). The total time active was 17 hours, considerable less than in the CQ160 CW, maybe because the activity on the band was less and nighttime shorter than in the CW contest a month ago.
