The CQ WPX RTTY contest was held a few days ago, and despite being occupied with other duties that apparently are, quote, “more important than sitting infront of that radio all day”, I logged 100 contacts on low power. This should ideally be tenfold that number, but I’ll get there next year.
The antenna used for this contest was an EFHW tossed into a tree. I’m working on a more permanent antenna solution, but for the moment this is what I had to work with. If that wasn’t challenging enough, I didn’t have my PA here either, so I ran barefoot with ~70-80 watts.
I’m working on a better contest setup at home, and will dive into the details on this topic a little later.
