ARRL 160 meter

ARRL 160-Meter Contest (2016)

Never had so many dupes in a contest.   I was spotted a couple times as NR-3-M. Hope everyone had a good time.

ARRL 160-Meter Contest (2015)

Steve and Larry (K7SV) teamed again for this running. Steve worked from the beginning to about 03Z and Larry operated from 03Z to about 08Z.  Steve took over from about 09Z to sunrise. That was both nights. Conditions were not stellar, but certainly not bad. QRN was minimal but at times the band was really packed. We had a problem with the 8 circle, so RX antennas were NE, SE and NW beverages. Transmit antenna is a pair of phased Tees with about 100ft vertical. rig = K3 driving a single 4-1000Z.

Good conditions, but there could have been more activity. Activity from SA was notably absent. We got receive 8 circle working (mostly) and 3 new Beverages working within the last few days before the contest, and they were a huge factor in our ability to hear stations. At times, there was considerable rain/snow static, which would have been a pain to deal with, if not for the receive antennas.

Got into this contest on a whim at the last minute, and started late. Had more problems in the short time I op'd this contest, than all other contests in recent history. Rig would lock up when you pressed the 'esc' key to kill a CQ.  Apologies to those ops where I just disappeared, for many seconds.
