EI1DGSO LP ALLjust a few hours to give points away, enjoyed it
EI4HQSO LP 15MGood fun. Two things stuck out about this contest, my first spent entirely on 15m from band open to close on both days, firstly the number of local (EU) stations I worked Long Path, the second the number of big station sigs travelling all the around at least once!
EI7MMSHIt's been a long time since we tried any sort of serious cw contest, so it was nice to give this one a go. Firstly, congratulations to the eastern European guys for their grand scores! It seems the two solar impacts on Saturday were perfectly timed to ruin any chance for us to to do well. The early one killed our LF runs on Saturday morning, and the later one closed HF for us on Saturday afternoon. With our perennial problem of working mults from this far west in Europe (we worked almost all we could hear), we had no chance to compensate with greater qso numbers. Luckily, Sunday was a lot better and proved to us we can do ok if conditions allow! As the French say, "c'est la vie" - the important things are that we had fun, we did as well as we could this time around, and we learnt a lot for an improvement next year... Thanks to Dave, G3WGN, for traveling over and the great craic, to our cw team, to Neil '3JE for a huge amount of preparation work, and to John '8IR for hosting us. Mark '3KD

ES5TFSA LP ALLVery fun contest as usually. Unfortunately it was not possible to all 36 hours, but still, I'm very satisfied. I used rig Kenwood TS-2000 with a tribander JP-2000 and a delta loop for 80m, power was less than 100 W. On 80m even much less because of bad SWR. Meet you on the air, 73!

F5JYSO HP 15Mwhat about those stations running high speed pile up who never never give their call? not everybody compete in assisted category and I think it's abnormal loosing my competion time waiting 15 minutes or more to know these stations callsign.Rules must be more clear about that
F5PHWSA HP ALLHad fun with 350W and a GP. Magic WW DX CW. The only week end you can contact PJ4D-6V7V and PJ2T in 60 secondes exactly. Tnx to KH6LC for KH6 on 40. See you next year. 73 de F5PHW Phil (ex FO8RZ)
F5TRBSO LP ALLTRX IC735 50W G5RV10-40M
F5ULSO QRP 40MFantastic propag this year! I never had so much good results thant these two days!!! Same antena as before (vertical whip 30 feet long, installed 96 feet over ground) but I used two transceivers, the 1st one a Genesis G11 with 5 watts, the first day and the second a Elecraft KX3 the second day also 5 watts. They are both at the same level may be the KX3 having a better reaction to keying than the G11. Both offering the same ease of receiving. Both a very nice set up for reception of very low level signals!
F5VHJSA HP ALL10 was a disapointment. Better luck next year. Just a causal contest from home. Very comfortable to operate from home for a change. Many good operators
F5VKTSA HP ALLWish I could stay awake longer!
F6CWASO LP ALLAfter a cqww cw qrp in 2011 this year I participate with my TS850S and a vertical 18HTS with 96 radial on the ground. I am a just man walked on bands by answering the CQ, it is another way of participating in the cqww. Goodbye Hubert F6CWA
F6GOXSO HP 160MMy station consists of a FT990 with Inrad 145Hz CW filter + FL7000 (500w) + 25m wire antenna. The bias of this activity 160m single band was looking for new country, my score is 89 DXCC. One was available this time: Turkey, contacted through the contest TC3M station located in zone 20. I made 118 QSO for a total score of 5980 points, with 7 CQ zones (5 14 15 16 20 33 35), 39 DXCC countries whose Europe (34), North America (2), Africa (2), Asia (1) TA. Only six North American stations were removed from the noise the 24/11: three U.S. stations contacted successively located in the state of Maryland (MD), W3LPL at 03:02z, NN3W at 03:34z and W3KL at 03:41z and a Canadian station VE1ZJ at 03:45z, then another U.S. state of Georgia K4PI at 06:10z then K3CR Pennsylvania (PA) at 06:54z who answered my CQ, a half hour before sunrise to my Paris. No North American station was heard on 25/11... I missed the zone 2 with VE2EKA not heard... Also note any station caribbean heard (FM5CD, KP2M, PZ5T) but I heard for the first time Colombia (HK1NA) on 160m. Then I've bitched! Mad I heard without contacting stations in Russian asia zone 17 (RX9CAZ) and 18 (RA9Y), Kazakhstan (UN4L, UP2L), Lebanon (OD5NJ), yet in the area of less than 4,000 kms but there mystery in this direction, my calls do not... I have not heard yet reported of such EL2A 160m (Liberia) and C5A (Gambia) ... In total, a good time spent with always a boundless admiration for operators such as D4C, ES5TV, 4O8A operating in telegraphy speed of light in the midst of monstrous pile up...Best 73 Laurent F6GOX Paris
FK/VK6DXISA LP ALLI had S9 + noise in the hotel so could not hear anything with my fishing rod vertical
FY5KESO HP 15MOne more week-end of pleasure. See you next year!
G0EFOSO HP ALL The usual madhouse, but well mannered
G1NSA LP 40M80 Watts to dipole at 25 feet just doesn't cut the mustard. The Assisted category certainly makes life a little easier for us aged operators. Great fun as always. Heard China and Japan but no QSO's - maybe next year
G2HDRSO LP ALLGood contest as ever. Conditions good with bands lively SD used for logging
G3GLLSO LP 15MSD worked fine Good conditions
G3IAFSO LP ALLGood - conditions, particularly HF Bad - those CQ'ers who never stop to listen for callers
G3IZDSO LP 10MBand essentially only open during daylight. Propagation to North America notably better on Sunday. Significant number of strong keyclicks
G3LHJSO QRP 10MCondxs not soo good as last year - Saturday very hard going for Qrp, but Sunday was great with good Stateside opening up until 18:00hrs then no good for Qrp As always a great contest much enjoyed cu next year
G3NKSSO LP ALLIC756 PROII 100W, G5RV at 15ft. 17 hours. N1MM. Unassisted. Saturday: Strange conditions, LF bands noisy in evening, rain static too. Sunday: Better! 10m good. Strongs echos on 15m. Neverceases to amaze me that so much can be worked from a noisy urban QTH with 100W to a low wire antenna when up against so much competition. Great fun!
G3RSO LP ALLGREAT FUN AGAIN ,MY CW RX BIT RUSTY , MY ANTENNAS ARE THE BEST EVER. HANKS GUYS SEE YOU ALL AGAIN 73
G3SJJSO HP ALLVery bad quality signals from LZ5R, UZ2M, UU7J, YU1KX, YT5M. Also YT1A had a parasitic which was audible over +- 20KHz
G3TBKSA HP ALLVERY BAD SIGNAL FROM DR1A ON 160m THROUGHOUT CONTEST (WIDE, MODULATED, CHIRPY) ROTATOR FAILED LEAVING BEAM JAMMED SOUTH!
G3TXFSA HP 10MDisturbed conditions on the first day, but well compensated for by good conditions towards the end of the Contest on the Sunday afternoon, including an enjoyable five-hour non-stop run into USA/Canada
G3VKWSA LP ALLOnly limited time to play
G3VPSChecklogPurely a checklog
G3VPWSA HP 40MSpent the early hours using traditional S&P aided by my own local skimmer, No internet spotting. System worked well, local skimmer ineffictive when running. Nevertheless by the end of the contest there wasn't much around that I hadn't worked. All in all very satisfied with 104 countries and 31 zones although not as good as last years effort which earned me 20th in the World in this category. Apologies to all who came back to me as F3VPW, need to investigate linear TX/RX timings or contact bounce with the letter 'G' on first transmission. Spent about an hour mid contest playing with TX leadtimes in K3 menu and my Microham II keyer into dummy load and listening on a seperate Rx. Many thanks to Bob K3EST for all your past years of effort with CQWW, you have earned a well deserved rest
G3VYISO HP 20MGood condx, best for years!! Tnx all contacts EI5DI great K1EL winkey great
