This may have been the best showing we have had to date in the ARRL 160 CW contest. The EU propagation could not have been better on Friday night until EU sunrise on Saturday morning. Our first EU was worked only 19 minutes into the contest which is anything but normal for us. Needless to say, that set our expectations for what was to come. We were not disappointed. By the time we shut down Saturday morning we had 136 five point Qs in the log. Unfortunately night two was not quite so cooperative as we only added another 63. The five pointers really helped grow the multiplier count. However, the ARRL sections were not quite as cooperative. By Saturday morning we were still in need of PAC, WTX, NT, PR, and ORG. By the end of the contest PAC and ORG were in the log but we never heard, saw any spots or were called by WTX, NT and PR. Where did you others find them? That loss was made up by being called by VK, PAC and several JAs. We also decided to real-time post our scores to CQContest. For much of the first day we were the only MS entry but were pleased to be joined by 4 more teams as time went on. Another VERY high point of the contest was to see our score pass by the W2GD score. OK….that might be a SLIGHT exaggeration. That anomaly might have something to do with the fact that they stopped posting with about 15 hours left in the contest. Another FANTASTIC job by the W2GD team. One word " WOW! Finally, thanks to the rest of the team for making this a fun weekend. Based on the Operator Q counts Dan N3ND, Bert N4CW and Howie WA4PSC did most of the heavy lifting as I came in 4th place!
