CQWW is the BIG SHOW, the ultimate test of operator skill, stamina, propagation knowledge, planning, and execution. The level of competition is like no other contest. I am thankful to have participated in this great event once again, and hope all of you had as much fun as I did. Learned a week before the contest that I'd be sharing the SOAB HP catagory with P40T (N6AA@P43P) and P49Y (AE6Y). For one small island country this is alot of RF from three stations who likely will be in the top ten world list. Talk about competition just from your own country! Arrived Tuesday to find just minor antenna problems, a broken beverage and a bad splice on a rotor cable. Wasn't so lucky with my Titan amp. power supply, the surge relay in the primary wouldn't close. Very special thanks to Emily, P43E, for offering me the loan of her amplifier at the last minute. Unfortunately I don't have time to write a full blow by blow description of the action, but here are some highlights and lowlights: Before the contest, working 5A7A and TZ6 on 160M barefoot. Being called by VK9AA and 9N7JO for double mults on 40M during the last hour. Catching what was probably the best opening to EU on 10M Sunday morning adding 43 EU contacts to the log (Last year I didn't work a single EU stn on 10M during either WW weekend). Five 200+ hours, 10 hours over 175/hour. Rate meter over 400 at times. Quiet low band conditions, especially on the first night. Breaking the 1000 qso total level on 80M for the first time. The 3el wire beam to EU is really working. Keeping my butt in the chair....there was no room for error by oversleeping this year. Responses to CQs by many difficult to work Asian mults on all bands. Operating in the less crowded upper portion of the bands seemed to work well. Succesfully sharing 160M with P49Y - we are just 1 mile apart and use a gentlemen's agreement to time share the band. TNX Andy! Keeping the rate steady most of the contest (avoiding the dreaded DXing syndrome), knowing full well N6AA/P40T was out there cranking along after nearly a week of practicing his running techniques. Had an 80% success rate when asking stations to QSY to other bands. TNX to all who were willing to move to one or more bands. Enjoyed the company of N6AA and AE6Y for Thanksgiving Dinner (pasta at Don Carlos) and the traditionial after-contest get together (at Tony Romas) - no Dick, we aren't crazy to go out for dinner immediately after 48 hours of battle! Only one equipment failure, the C4 rotator stuck NW all day Sunday. A 30 minute power disruption (blown fuse in 220 line to amp) Saturday had little impact. Left too many double multipliers on the table (missed bigs stns. like 5A, TZ, ZS, and a multitude of other easy ones on several bands - the downside to S01R). Congratulations to CT1BOH for his continued excellence, N2NT for breaking the NA record, and to everyone esle who ventured beyond their home country borders to make available so many great multipliers for the rest of us to work. Special thanks to my Aruban hosts Humphrey and Corrie, to NO2R and other members of the Frankford Radio Club for their assistance diagnosing my amplifier problem, and to all of you who had fun last weekend and made it into my log.
