Not enough activity, at least for CW only, to justify 12 hours. Guess NY is just
too common!

Still enjoyable. Better score and conditions than last year.

By far (more than 4x) my personal best. Amazing what finally getting some real
antennas can do
 
K2DB   SOCW LP   93,5582011-10-15 19:18:16
Not bad except for the upper band taking a healthy poop at around 2000z to
2300z, I heard absolutely nothing on 20 or above for the three hours, at least
they did in NNY.
Had a great time with cw only.

I probably could have done more, even with the awkward distance involved, but I
got distracted by the RTTY test coinciding with nice DX propagation this
evening.

1St time doing a real effort for NYQP.. lack of activity made it hard to stay
focused.
I spent WAYY to much time on 10 & 15m with minimal results. 20m was a
disapointment not to condx.. but to my antennas. My station is not well
equipped antenna wise on 20-10m. Was very happy with 40 & 80m performance. I
almost went to top band.. but decided against it last minute.

I had planned to do a solo operation (no driver) but late in the week I found
out that my good friend and master county hunter Paul, WB2ABD was not set up
for doing a mobile effort of his own. He volunteered to be the driver and I
could operate SO CW only. Better yet, we used his scooter with a roof-mounted
screwdriver.

We activated 20 counties, which was well beyond what I planned alone. CHA, CAT,
ERI, WYO, ALL, LIV, STE, CHE, SCU, TIO, TOM, COR, ONO, CAY, SEN, ONT, MON, GEN,
ORL and NIA were all quite well represented by us. Well, we did make a wrong
turn in TIO and only operated there for 9 minutes. Congrats to the lucky few
who got us there! Late in the contest (1/2 hour left) I was asked to go to WYO
county when I was in GEN. Although they are neighboring counties I was at the
northern border of GEN and never would have made WYO in time. Sorry if you
missed the county sweep because of that Keith but we did activate WYO earlier
in the day.

Conditions the first several hours were crappy but in the late afternoon they
seemed to get better. 40m was especially noisy through most of the contest. We
did have rain and high winds the whole time.

I was quite satisfied with the hourly rate:
1400 - 50
1500 - 40
1600 - 38
1700 - 53
1800 - 41
1900 - 53
2000 - 69
2100 - 65
2200 - 47
2300 - 62
0000 - 62
0100 - 65
Average rate: 53.75

One county in particular was a hoot. When I entered Cortland I had a massive
pileup. I apologize for being a lid handling the pileup, but realized too late
I had the noise blanker and noise reduction on and it was causing some
distortion on receive. However, I eventually worked every station that needed
it.

Many thanks to constant companions NT2A (24), LY5A (21), K1ZZI (18), N4PN and
N6MA (15), W4UCZ (13), WA3HAE, WA6KHK, K5KDG and W3DYA (12), N4VV and W5WJN
(11), HA8IB (10) and many others with multiple QSOs. Special thanks to LY5A who
worked us in all but the last four counties. I guess he has to go to bed
sometime!

Rig: Elecraft K3/100
Ant: Roof mounted Little Tarheel screwdriver.
Driver: WB2ABD

Too Bad we had a solar event during the afternoon that effectively really slowed
the rate. The conditions during the preceding weeks were just phenomenal and
using the bands as they were, I made a plan to take advantage of the superior
propagation. Having a plan at hand, the sun decided to change its behavior,
rendering my plans pretty useless!

Did CW only this time to get me in the mood for my upcoming expedition during
the CQWW-CW and hopefully that will help. Thanks to everyone who worked me as
W6XR/2 which sure is a fist full on CW. Just imagine doing this contest
without a memory keyer -- no thanks. Great operators stateside as well as the
many DX stations who called in. The DX guys sure kept things rolling along.
Hopefully I'll work everyone in the NY gang from Eluthra (C6AXR) or whatever
call is used from the Bahamas. Once again, thanks for the Q's and kudos to the
organizers, particularly having a 12 hour contest as some of us are really
getting older.

57 of 62 NY Counties, same as last year. Increased by 33 Q's.
Big difference running QRP Phone compared to my contesting at 1500 watt RTTY.
Wish I had 20-15-10 antennas.

Never posted a score here so here goes...

Had a blast! First time ever calling CQ in a contest. I mainly do S&P because I
only have an indoor HF antenna.

Rig is a Kenwood TS-690s and I was running about 75 watts. I tune an indoor
random wire (loop) with an SCG-230 tuner in a spare bedroom. High noise level
here and I know I missed a few who were calling me so sorry to those operators
but just couldn't pull you out. Plenty of other Monroe county op's so I doubt I
was unique to anyone.

Anyway, great contest and am looking forward to next year!

Lots of fun, had some good runs, and even spent some time chatting with some boy
scouts at two different camps for the JOTA weekend.
 
N2ZN/M   MobileMixed LP   18,2312011-10-16 15:43:58
Time constraints due to family activities limited operation to 5 hours. This
was a single op mobile entry, so I drove to a location, operated, then drove to
the next location, operated, etc. I'm sure I spent more time driving and
finding a spot to operate than actually operating!

Locations in Allegeny and Wyoming counties were quite good (~2000' ASL
hilltops, no power lines, highest point in area), but the spot I found in
Cattaraugus county was noisy and in a valley. Sorry to anyone I couldn't copy
there (or anywhere else). The FT-857 I use in the car is very sensitive to
local noise, so there were some signals that got covered up at times. 40 was
quite noisy and my SWR was high there, so my apologies for being weak on both
TX and RX. I also had some RFI problems which may have killed my CAT interface
for the rig while in Cattaraugus. Guess that is not a lucky county.

20 seemed to work well-signals were loud. Probably should have worked that
band more.

I tried 10 SSB once, thinking I might work some southern USA or west coast.
Very surprised when two Europeans and a ZS5 answered me there, instead of any
stateside!

Very glad to see some of the rarer counties activated, including Clinton,
Chatauqua, Orange, Warren, and Sullivan. I guess everybody missed Rockland
this year?

Thanks for the QSO's, and see you next year from ???

Station Description-

Rig: FT-857, 100W
Antenna: ATAS-120
N1MM Logger
Counties activated: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Wyoming, Livingston, Monroe, Wayne.

Despite cold weather, constant rain, and high wind warnings in WNY, Steve
(KC2QZF) and I were able to pull off another successful contest. In response
to relatively low turnout in previous NYQP years for Allegany County, we opted
to hitch up the RVs and head to a campground outside of Angelica, NY. We
actually scoped out the campground about a month prior to the contest and got
the "OK" from the owners to setup antennas, etc. It's difficult enough to
explain ham radio to non-hams, but it's even harder to explain contesting.
Luckily the campground owner was somewhat familiar because one of their
seasonals is a ham operator (who incidentally we worked during the contest
while he was at a different QTH!).

Steve spent most of the contest on 80M and 20M via his IC-7000 and an 80M
dipole at a NVIS-friendly height. I spent most of my time on 40M via my
TS-2000 and a 40M dipole. Steve was able to find enough room to somehow string
up the two dipoles as cross-polarized within the bounds of "a campsite" (or two)
(maybe three) (and a campground roadway).

Despite our best efforts, some of the 80M RF was making its way back into the
camper. We tried both chokes and line isolators to no avail. At least this
time our router didn't keep rebooting every time we keyed up (as in our past
roving exploits during a certain January VHF contest)... Just don't ask us how
our computer mice worked while 80M was in use. 80M was a bit dry early on in
the contest thanks to those friendly sunspots. We did both note an abnormally
high number of stations calling us that were dupes. Otherwise there were no
significant oddities. We even worked a couple of 5W QRP's from across the
state -- that may be my next category to try and tackle!

A big thank you to the rovers and mobiles out there - we appreciate your
efforts to activate the rare counties. We ended up with 53 out of the 62 NY
counties -- did anyone find the Bronx on the air?

Thanks RDXA for another fine year!

Thanks to the mobiles for running counties: K2QO (9), N2CU and W2PV (8), WJ2O
(4)

I was in and out of the shack all day, propagation was decent, but never heard
anyone on 15 or 10 when I checked.

Thanks to all the fixed stations who popped up. Thought I would miss WES,
remember when there were many more active contesters there...
 
N4NW   SOMixed HP   15,9842011-10-17 07:45:22
Out of eight operating events to choose from, three being state QSO parties and
the Worked All Germany contest I chose to the NYQP to exercise the station for
the coming contest season.

Of the signals heard & worked from New York, the majority were strong and easy
to contact. However, there did not appear to be very many stations from New
York operating the QSO party. Although I worked every county heard I only
managed 54 of the 62.

For as many hams as there are in New York, participation in the state QSO party
was disappointing. Sometimes called CQ for up to five minutes before New York
station would answer. Very few NY stations were heard calling CQ NYQP and only
a couple of others outside NY were heard looking for contacts in NY.

I would like to thank all the NY stations who did participate and give me a
contact and perhaps a county multiplier. Next year I will carefully consider if
my operating time will be better spent operating one of the other state QSO
parties or the Worked All German contest.

Been a ham since 1965 and this was my first try at a contest. Worked only seven
hours with a few bathroom breaks and lunch. Had a lot of fun and next year will
give it a better try. I found it's really easy to participate.

My only problem is electronic logging. I have a Mac and can't find any software
for it. Maybe I need to get a PC. I'll try to get a digital log in by the
deadline.

Thanks for the experience - I sure enjoyed it.

excellent show. Thank you for all QSOs.

It's sad that there is a conflict with a major RTTY contest which makes it
impossible to operate mixed mode using RTTY. The JARTS contest has a big RTTY
following where the excange is signal report and age. The two contest clash on
RTTY.

I had problems with the Writelog contest mode for the NYQP as it slowed down to
a crawl on CW. I finally gave up and switched to SSB for the limited time I
had. I think for many this was a 40 meter contest.

There was a lot of activity on 40 SSB. Thanks to all those who called.
 
W2LC   MobileCW QRP   6,5402011-10-17 11:14:11
Operated from Onondaga (ONO), Oswego (OSW), Jefferson (JEF), St. Lawrence (STL),
Franklin (FRA), and Clinton (CLI) counties.

Funny Story, well kind of. A NY State troop pulled me over Friday night on the
way home from the Clarkson University hockey game in Potsdam. A burnt out
headlight. Then 10 miles later I got pulled over again, same thing, I just
handed the second trooper my license, registration and the first ticket when he
walked up. The first guy was very professional, a credit to the NY State
troopers, the second guy was a jerk. I guess he didn't like me pre-empting his
"do you know why I pulled you over" speech. After that I turned my brights on,
otherwise I would have gotten pulled over 3 or 4 more times. There is a trooper
about every 10 miles on Route 11 from Watertown to Potsdam.

I got home about 1:00AM, about 45 minutes later than normal due to the traffic
stops and the rain. So I slept in a bit and spent Saturday morning loading the
van and fixing the headlight. I didn’t want a repeat on Saturday night,
therefore I got a late start. So going to Lewis, Hamilton and Essex bit the
dust. I also had a time limit, I went to the Clarkson hockey game Saturday
night too, game time was 7PM.

Why go to the Clarkson hockey games? It is one of those good news, band news
things. I won the year end raffle last year and the prize was season tickets to
the Clarkson men’s hockey games. The bad news is, it is a 143 mile drive from
home, each way. My youngest daughter goes to Clarkson, so I meet her there,
watch the game and take her to dinner either before or afterwards. The games
are fun to watch too, after all it’s big time division I hockey! Well you
know, it’s NNY its cold, its snowy and you go to the hockey game! Besides,
have you ever been to Potsdam? The hockey game is THE big event over the
weekend!

The ride to Clinton County was longer than I thought, so only 13 QSO’s from
there, and I just made it back to Potsdam in time for the hockey game. The rain
was really heavy at times and the wind was blowing pretty hard, which made it
very difficult.

Thanks to all for the QSO’s especially HA8IB (4) and LY5A (5), SP5SA (4),
PA3ARM, UA3AGW, YV5OIE, HB9DAX, DR5MM, OK1DVM. I was only running 5 watts
(FT-817) to the usual hamsticks on 20 and 40, so nice ears!

This year we decided to do high power. It may have added a few Q's but also
created serious inter-station QRM. As a result, we were only able to run the
amp on 75/80 and 10 meters. The amp on any other band caused computers and
interface boxes to lock up. We had three rigs and operators. AD8J and W3NO
took care of the CW and SSB. AB2HG did all the RTTY. We increased the RTTY
Q's this year but most of them were DX and not US contest stations. Our best
customer was Paul, N4PN with 7 Q's. Our QTH was an unheated cottage on Keuka
Lake in YATES county. Our own county was one of the 6 that we did not work.
We missed 18 states/providences including KY. Can't believe that was a rare
one. At least we didn't freeze our butts off this year, even if we did have
rain to deal with. Thanks to all that worked us and the mobiles that stopped
by as they changed counties.

K2ZR and I planned a 12 county rove starting in Herkimer Co. at the QTH of the
Cold Brook Contest Club. After a great dinner on Friday night with K2CS and
AF2K, some Heineken's a the club house, and some prodding, ZR decided on
Saturday morning that another four counties would be a good idea especially
since one county, Montgomery, has been quite rare. The mobile was fitted with
Hamsticks front and rear and we were ready to go at the stroke of 2PM local
time. Running two stations was a challenge but the borrowed bandpass filters
from my normal VHF rover partner did the job.

The whole contest went by very fast because we had a had good rates going from
start to finish. At one point we made an effort at trying 15M but Murphy was on
board and no Qs were made. Investigation in the driveway on Sunday confirmed
that the stick was wonky on the front antenna mount. Odd.

We had great food for the road, radio conditions were good and activity seemed
high. The real surprise was the number of stations that followed us from county
to county. The top dog was K1ZZI with 23 QSOs! NT2A came in at 18. Many other
stations were in the near one dozen QSO range.

This contest was a blast and we'll be back for another run in 2012.

73,
