CQ WW DX

CQ Worldwide DX Contest, RTTY (2012)

What a great weekend! Great friends, great conditions and we introduced three folks to the world of RTTY contesting. We had a pair of delightful young ladies join us. Sally G2YL who is residing in Northern Virginia put a lot of Qs in the log and provided great diversity to the usual contest weekend banter. While, Steve's NR4Ms daughter, Jennifer, has grown accustomed to all the contest 'strangeness' over the years, this weekend she actually participated in it, making a number of contacts on 20 meters.

Conditions seemed to be great for this years running of CQWWCW. The Goat Farm Crew had a terrific time! Half the guys fought Thanksgiving weekend traffic in traveling to and from the farm.

Everything pretty well came together station-wise for the contest and the propagation deities really favored us this time around. 10 thru 40 were great all weekend. 80 was terrific Friday night, but not so much Saturday night. Jim W4PRO did a terrific job milking top band for multipliers and what Qs were available. The flux was down some, but that probably helped the low bands while ten meters was open world-wide.

Can't really add to what has already been written about the FANTASTIC conditions. Everything was open all the time, it seemed. Some of the EU signals on 10 and 15 were super loud! Being a RTTY contester with limited experience, W4PK and N2QT, showed me how they were using two digital windows, each with a different antenna source. Thought this was really a neat thing.

We're getting much closer to having NR4M ready for the big time. The core antennas are in place for 80 through 15 - 80 = 4SQ and appear to be working well. 40 = pair 4 el OWAs 190/100ft, 20 = 5/5/5/5 top at 160ft, 15 = 5/5/5 top at 120ft.

Once again we had a terrific time putting the hardware at NR4M to work in the M/M category. We managed to get a few new antennas up, which increased the fun quotient! It was great to have W4PRO and N4FX from the Tidewater area join us this year. Once the contest started everything held up well.

Sure was great to have the core NR4M team back together again. WK3W and his son Henry operated with us for a while as well. If one doesn't count not getting the 160 antenna to work as being a Murphy visit, the only place we saw the bugger was in the computers (of course). Once the contest ended Steve NR4M found a bad CAT5 cable on the machine that was giving us fits!
