Another year – another BIG contest. This, I’m told, is the mother-of-all-contests .. at least for SSB. Everyone works everyone (or there abouts) 🙂
I did not have much time to work this contest — I think I spent about 10 or 12 hours operating what is a 48 hour contest. I recently picked up a new (to me) antenna from a local ham that sports 10/12/15/17/20 coverage – (it does work well!) and I decided to try that it out for this contest.
So, down the basement I go and work the contest .. about 3 sessions I put into it and get the following out of it:
Not bad … I guess .. interesting to note that I forgot (until after) it was not an antenna that works 40 — but seems I was able to work him anyways! Thank god for tuners!
