On August the 7th I attended the European HF Championship as LC1R, single-op, high power, SSB only. I used the LA2T shack so I had plenty of power and good antennas, and was able to work 20, 40, and 80 meters. 15 and 10 meters was just playing the greatest hits of The Whitenoise on repeat to me. In total I logged 436 QSOs, but I think at least 10% were “uuh… 59 001” so probably worth no points.
I had a run of about 8 hours from start to finish, and in the end I wasn’t able to hear any stations that I hadn’t already worked. At then end of the day I guess I did as good as I could have done, given the time frame and the working conditions.
Logs have been submitted to the contest committee, and I’ve updated QRZ.com and LoTW, so anyone who wants their QSOs confirmed knows where to look.
It was a fun contest, thanks to everyone who participated!
