CQWW WPX Contest, CW (2012)

Another terrific CQWPX CW has come and gone. It's going to be hard to beat this one. First we had four new folks operating with us. Aurelio PC5A and Frank ON9CC included a stay with us after Dayton. Hans PB2T/NB2T who is in the area on temporary assignment stopped by on Sunday. And last, but certainly not least, Pete N4ZR spent the weekend. Then, we can talk about conditions, but I think it's all been pretty well said. Ten could have been a bit better, but that probably would have been at the expense of 80 and maybe 160.

Russian DX Contest (2012)

Between logger problems and condx it was an interesting weekend. Despite Murphy's best efforts, we did have some fun. As noted by others it was primarily a 40/20 meter contest. There are 24 Qs, a couple of oblasts and possibly a few more DX mults not included in this summary.

NR4M won USA M/M in CQWW WPX CW 2011

NR4M (15,071 mil) won the USA M/M beating NQ4I (13.415 mil) by almost 2 mil points.


To quote Charles Dickens, "the best of times the worst of times".
As always we enjoyed great camaraderie with great friends at the Goat Farm
during the weekend, but some had more fun than others while playing radio!
In addition to the regular crew, Jack W0UCE and Dan N3ND graced us with
their presence during the weekend. It's always great to have new folks show
up, especially characters such as these coming from NC and SC!

NR4M achieves CQWW CW station best

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.
