CQ WPX RTTY Contest (2019)

Ugh! Antenna issues left and right. 80 meter 4 square went to 2:1 and stayed there. 20 meter tower prop pitch froze over night Lower antenna in 40 meter stack kaput up on the tower somewhere. etc, etc, etc. Not as much fun as it could have been. Thanks for your patience and your Q's.

Terrible thunderstorms both nights forced us off the air for hours at a time.
And, to boot, network issues forced us to shut down in order get things working
again. Unconnected co-ax's were 'snapping' because of electricity in the air. Not a comfortable feeling.
This 'off time' really killed us.

Three ops canceled last minute do to health issues.

Thanks for all the Q's.

 

CQ WW WPX CW M/M (2017)

As sometime happens with CQWW WPX CW following Hamvention, there was some international flair to the NR4M operation this year. We had Mattieu CE3MVW and Andy YO3JR join us. Add to that KO8SCA, K4GMH, N3UA, CE2MVF, N3AIU, KN3DEB, N2YO, KG3V, KA4RRU, K4GM, W7IY, K7SV and NR4M to round out the list of great ops.

Beside the fact that 10 meters was 'stink-o', propagation was OK. As you would expect, the 15 opening was much shorter than the recent past, but did hang in there with QSO's all day long.
40 meters is almost a 24 hour band now, which is always a good thing. I found the low bands to be very quiet, which was nice.

Conditions were down, so things were slower. Really miss 10 meter, but we'll have to get used to it.

CQ WW WPX Contest, RTTY (2016)

Bands noisy first night, much better second night. Three 'newbie' ops with limited experience. One of the ops for the upcoming Heard Island DXpedition stopped by to see how RTTY is operated, so will at least be familiar with it while on the Island.

Great to get back into WPX CW again after missing last year due to a wedding and station construction. We had a great crew and everyone seemed to have a good time for this one. Condx weren’t bad. Ten obviously left a lot to be desired, but we’ve gotta get used to that. Fifteen was fair Saturday and much better Sunday. Twenty was better in the late evening/early morning than during the day. 40 produced well considering the considerable shorter opening to Europe. As expected, with flux down, 80 was quite good and noise surprisingly low. Not much to be said for top band.

CQ WW RTTY WPX Contest (2015)

Contest started off miserably. Software put the contact times all over the place. I know this is going to kill our score. For a SFI of 125, 10 was a big surprise. My first EU QSO Saturday morning was
with IW9FRA at 1153 UTC, and we consistently made Q's on 10 for the next 12+ hours. Had a nice, but short 10m LP opening to Asia Saturday AM, with some JA's and one BY in the log.

CQ WW RTTY WPX (2014)

Wow! What a weekend.

Found the bands extremely friendly, so everyone found a place to operate.
There seemed to be an almost limitless supply of new stations the whole weekend.

Had two operators who had never operated RTTY at all, and one other that had done so one a limited, casual basis. Two others had never operated from the Goat Farm before, so there was there was a bit of a 'learning curve' for several ops.
