Now that was an experience. I was able to participate in a multi-single operation for this 48 hour contest. I have worked this contest before, but only for a bit from my own QTH with limited setup. Cary VE4EA’s location has a good antenna and running 500watts (or thereabouts). Ops in this contest were Cary VE4EA, Kelly VE4XT and myself.
I saw some incredible operating by these guys and learned a few things here and there – -just have to make it all ‘stick’. That comes with more practice me thinks …
Our score on paper is good. For the Manitoba multi-single category, we should have beat the last record – but with the error count still to be applied, we will see – it’s close.
I’d like to thank Cary VE4EA for hosting the setup, and both Cary and Kelly for showing a newbie how things are done. Seems I have to re-learn my code to do more contesting.
oh – and here are the submitted 3830 scores:
