It doesn't get any better than this! All my WPX records were obliterated " WOW - At first I thought, I'm starting to get the hang of this contesting thing. But soon realized that propagation is the controlling factor vs. my operating skills. The only real goal I had made was to improve running at low power in this contest and increasing the number of prefixes. That goal was achieved by making over 400 Q's during some amazing runs to Europe and Asia. The runs harvested many new prefixes including ones from Qatar, China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Japan and India. My previous best prefix total was 655, so the new total of 826 was over the top. In summary, the runs resulted in more contacts (1557 vs 1229) and my first score over 3M in any contest. Another indicator of how good the conditions were, is that the station felt strong much of the time. I was able to break many of the pile-ups, both to Asia and Europe, and received many comments of a booming signal. The DX was very good with Gabon, Sierra Leone, Saudi Arabia, China (10 contacts), India, Israel, Indonesia, Saudi, Turkey, Korea, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Kiribati some nifty UA's and UN's and working 68 JA's from Southeast Georgia adding to the fun of low power contesting. Missed the T88, JT and several others. 20m Saturday night was amazing. WPX is probably my favorite contest and the score is a best for this station. Thanks to everyone for hearing me and working to get my exchange. Lots of QRM on 15m and 20m, so I know there will be busted contacts. Also, thanks to CQ and the contest committee for all their work. Best " Jere FT 1000-MP MK-V Field, TH6-DXX, dipoles in the trees and N1MM.
