|This entry for W9NJY in the CQ 160 CW contest was a true first effort. I put up an antenna specifically for this event. I constructed a Marconi with elevated radials in the side yard of my suburban house. It is a visual treat for my neighbors! I
|nice to hear an active top-band!
|I had fun and was quite successful getting my 23 ST/PR multiplier. Again, my dipole antenna is simply too short and too low. The K3LR CW ground wave signal was very powerful into Niles, as usual. Was happy to get FL, IA and ME. Unfortunately, I didn't hea
|Both nights started at 2200 UTC and did not leave the operating chair until after 0800 UTC (no restroom breaks, etc). Fought local QRN with a continuous cycle of 30 seconds on and 60 seconds off during the entire contest. Not much from Europe the

|Hi all, Just giving out Q's to the guys hard at it.73.
|Just casual this time. S&P the first day CQ the next!

|Quiet condx favorable to my dipole.
|This was a last-minute "find some time to run QRP" exercise. This was my 2nd 160-meter QRP operation from the WA6TQT Super Station in ANZA. I had access to a crippled 3-Square vertical array that was STUCK in the N-E direction. I appreciate everyone's pat

|I took few days of my vacation just to put up antenna. The plan was to have two vertical phased arrays which was done at the end. Two beverages, one for USA, other for JA from some reason did not work, probably configuration of terrain or heavy snow. Just
