VC3XSO HP ALLConditions could have been better on 80 and 160 but overall it was a great event. I am happy to say there is still room for improvement. I learned some things which should help the score next year...only 365 days to go. :) Member of Team Orca
VE1SKYSA LP 80M100w max power output
VE1ZASA LP ALLRunning 100W from output of transceiver. Interesting contest. I originally contemplated a QRP effort, but that quickly changed to low power. My score was not better than last year, but I reached 1m points/1000 Q's in 18.5 hrs, vs a 26 hour operation last year. My Q rate went up from 49 to 56 Q per hour on average and my operation was 99% S&P. I am very happy with that since I improved my operating techniques. Running an FT-1000MkV, triband yagi @ 15m and wires for 80/40m and an INV-L for 160. Using a pennant antenna for recieve, even on 15m--it was really needed. The low band condx were not as good last year--lots of noise. However, the KH2/AH0 stations were plentiful, which was great!. Had lots of fun as usual. Thanks to all participants and the contest committee--Tony VE1ZA
VE2DXYM2Band conditions were good and local weather cooperated in Zone 2. It's rare to have both of these in alignment from our northern location. This year our Multi-Two station performance was significantly improved as we added a second beam on 10 through 20 to our antenna set up, used two Electraft KPA500 amps and the new KAT500 tuner. This greatly increased our band agility on both stations. We had good runs on all of the bands, especially 10 meters. Due to pending Hurricane Sandy and possible RACES responsibility, we decided to return home early for family considerations and only operated 36 hours. After two days of driving, we made it home just in time before roads and bridges were stating to be closed
VE2EZDSA HP ALLThank you for this great contest FT-950 + AL-811H + AT2K + Heil Proset 80m dipole, 40m delta-loop, 15m vertical and 10m vertical
VE3AAQSO HP 10M10m was great! I lost three hours of good running time to resolve an RFI complaint from a neighbour
VE3BRSO LP 80MI was planning a solid SOAB LP effort with my new callsign. I ended up with a leisurely SOSB on what beforehand I considered my weakest band: 80 m (not counting 160 where I have no antenna at all). Contest started with things falling apart for upper bands, resulting in the operator peeved and gravelled beyond the point of "having fun". I could keep adding to aggravation or regroup for the second night and do 80 with no receiving antennas, "radially challenged" vertical and low power - all no good on lower bands. C'est la vie, c'est la guerre. After I reminded myself that I am not a "serious contester" and recalled my uncle's saying (he had one for everything): "if you don't have what you like, like what you have", I managed to get back into the "fun mode" and enjoy the contest. Thanks to everybody who made it into my log. To those who didn't: try harder next year :)
VE3DCMMBand conditions were great. We tried Multi-multi this year and had a lot of fun with all the operators changing around radios and positions. We definitely had a lot of fun working all the DX stations. Thanks to all that worked us. 73 Rick VE3BK
