No room on 40m but 80m saved the day from being a complete waste of time. One double with K2CWM on 40 & 80. IC-7300 @ 5w to 80m loop. Thanks to all. 72 Jim
KA2KGP, Tom, 5 fpqso=10 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=210
20m. was dead, 40m. barnyard was full of mud, only 1 piggie worked. 80m. was OK here in WNY. Rig: IC-700 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ old WWII German Junkers straight key. 73 all
K0LAR, Scott, 5 w fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Contest on 20 and 40 meters. heard only three piggies on 80 meters. See you next month!
KB9W, Dan, 5W fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
I waited until after 2400Z for the big contest to end but 40 meters was still busy with the SST. I found three piggies with good signals on 80 meters: K0LAR, K9PX, & KA2KGP .... tnx for the contacts. CU next month, 73/72 Dan oo
K3JZD, Jody, 5w fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Had a tough time with this one. Nothing on 40m, even after the ARRL CW event ended. But by then the SST event had started. Worked all that I found on 80m. KX3 - 5w - 107' EFRW @ 20' Jody - K3JZD
K2CWM, Curt, 5 fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=18
I decided to wait till after 2400Z when the BIG CW contest was over, so I managed 3 contacts. Used my old IC-7000 at 5 watts into a vertical, Lionel J-38 straight key. Everyone stay safe...
NN3U, George, 5 fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Two on 80 near the end. Called CQ on 20 and 40 with no takers and no spots. Bands real noisy here. 5w into 84 ft inverted L.
(Old call K3EMS)
W4NLT, Andy, 5W fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Well that was frustrating. Where did all the piggies go?
20M dead, 40M filled with K1USN SST event. Got two piggies on 80M. Even squealed on 160M to no avail. Tried to get in between SST ops on 40M to no avail.
IC-7300 cranked down to 5W, Ant 84ft endfed in V configuration at 30ft.
72 oink oink see ya next month
K6FA, David, 5W fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
well I did try but heard no one on 20/40 for the few minutes I tried calling CQ and scanning. Maybe next minth depending on what contest are running next month. CUL 73 David
K5ZU , John Serrette, 5W fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
Well, I tried! I only have 40M es between the ARRL es CWOps taking most of the band, I didn't have a chance. Maybe I'll have some luck next month.
Rig: Elecraft K1 into a end fed dipole up 40 ft.
AL7JK, John, 5 W fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
Hello to all. Did not hear or work anyone this time around, focused on 20 mtrs. Gonna keep plugging away at it hr. Good health to all and hope to hear all of you someday soon ! 73
N4SO, KEN, 5 fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=0 total=0
Single band 80m only, two contacts K9PX and non-FP CO2JD. W8BJO was heard calling CQ but no response. Kenwood TS-530S and dipole antenna. Due to K1USN 80m was in good shape for contacts and with clear frequencies.
