ARRL 10-Meter Contest (2021)

Glad that is behind me.
Meteor pings were a bit disconcerting, but are part of the sport. It's amazing
the +/- 50 db, or more, in just an instant!
Was encouraged by the short EU opening on Saturday, only to see it almost non
existent on Sunday.

Was working on/off thru these miserable condx. Had to remove several contacts as the station just 'went away' which trying to finish the QSO.
When I wasn't operating, I was doing some painting in the shack, as it was more fun to watch the paint dry, than it was operating.

ARRL 10-Meter Contest...

ARRL 10-Meter Contest (2014)

Trying new stuff out. In the past, I've never had an antenna lower than 120 feet that I could turn and use in domestic contest.  That was really miserable.  Day before the contest, a friend gave me a 5 ele 10 meter yagi that K7SV and I got up the day  of the contest.

Operated when I could, on/off over the weekend. Mostly running, with very little S&P. My antennas are better suited for DX than close in stuff. I did wind up learning where I can, and can not, work using the higher angle back lobes of my antennas. Was consistently working the upper mid-west off the back of my SA stack at 35/70 feet pointing @155. Was much better than my lowest rotatable antenna @120 feet.

None of the 3 ops had any real quantity of time to spend with this contest. Used it to try and get a feel for how the new antennas played.  So far, so good. Finished rebuilding RF section of a 25 yr old amp Sat AM, so decided that we would test it out in the  contest.  It proved to be a good 'all or nothing' shake down of the amp.
