After missing CQWW SSB this year I really was looking forward to CW. Despite the worst conditions on ten meters in the 20+ years I’ve made a serious effort in this contest it was still a great week end. The “Good”: Second highest total QSOs ever – only eclipsed by 2002’s sunspot maximum. Working 100 countries on 40 meters for the second time and doing it in twelve hours! New CQWW personal records for QSOs, countries and zones on 40 and QSOs and countries on 20. New beverages that helped me copy lots of weak signals on the low bands. The “Bad”: Lowest totals on 10 meters since 1986. Static on 160 spoiling what sounded to be a great opening to Europe the second evening. Missing HC8N on ten when everyone else seems to have worked them – would have been my only six bander. New beverages that let me hear even more DX on 80 and 160 that I couldn’t work. The “Ugly”: DX stations not giving their calls. Guys who keep calling after the DX station has come back to someone. All the US stations answering my CQ’s, especially when I was trying to run Europe. One guy even duped me (I’m sure this is an even bigger problem for the “big guns”). Missed zones 21, 22, 23, 26, and 34 not only on 40 but the other bands as well. Heard 21, 22 and 26 on 40 but really only had shot at working 22. Radios: K3 and Orion. Antennas: 10/15/20: 3L SteppIR @ 134’, 4L SteppIR @ 75’, Th3jr fixed SE @ 40’, Stacked C3’s (2L) @ 101’ and 80’ fixed NE. 40: Moxon @ 137’, Lazy H between two towers @ ~120’ pointed NW-SE. 80: Array of 5 sloping dipoles from 134’ tower. 160: 6 elevated radials on 137’ tower. Receiving: 840’ beverage NE, 530’ beverage NW.
