CQWW 160m Contest 2014

28 Jan 2014 by sm0w, No Comments »

Last weekend myself and Thomas SMØCXU/PY2ZXU decided to participate in the CQWW 160 contest. Knowing we had several RX antennas broken we decided to do it "semi-deadly-serious" only and just for the pure fun of working DX's on "topband". Propagation was excellent on friday evening before the contest but never picked up quite to the same level during the contest. On saturday the magnetic field was also disturbed by the sun which gave the impression that somebody had disconnected the antenna from the transceiver. Here's a summary…
