N9TFSINGLE-OP LOWThat was fun! Made my goal of 500 plus Qs and a few DX too. Not too shabby with 100 watts and a cloud warmer for an antenna. Enjoyed the unassisted category. Me, the rig and propagation. I had a bit of additional encouragement to grind it out in the chair

NN7CWASSISTED HIGHThis was my first CQ160 from home and my goal was a quick'n dirty WAS 160, so I decided to go Assisted. Spoiler alert from SD could be botherd to participate, so that one kept me from popping the bubbly and calling it a day Friday night. Due to my mission
NO2DSINGLE-OP LOWTied feedline on 80 meter doublet together to work 160. Not great, but it worked enough to make some contacts. Many thanks to CQ and its volunteers to make this contest possible.
NO3USINGLE-OP LOWVery happy to hear the band conditions up - lots of fun!
NO9ESINGLE-OP HIGHPoor conditions the first night but most contacts, nearly all US. Much better conditions the second night but fewer contacts. Operations limited by strong RFI most likely from cable leak. Often Wellbrook 1530LN loop nulling RFI had better copy than 3-el R
NU6OSINGLE-OP LOWGreat propagation and low noise. A very good contest!
NX9GSINGLE-OP QRPFirst time 160M QRP, and I'm amazed how I did . Only downside of QRP is that people cq on the top of me and I constantly have to move around . Its nothing like 100W or 1,5k , but is still fun and something new. 73 NX9G
