RDXC 2021

A bit overdue and not much to say about this contest. At least: not something that hasn’t been said over and over again about running a contest. The contests themselves remain fun, but write-ups become a bit repetitive.

The contest started with a K index of 6. That’s a killer. Propagation has been awful for the last couple of contests.

The rates were OK but certainly not spectacular. Participation was more than OK but it wasn’t easy under the current propagation.

I started the contest very tired and I had a short black out in the chair at the keyboard. I was very tired after the contest too.

Not my record score but at least I made over 2000 QSO in 24h.

It was now and here I decided to skip the CQ WPX SSB contest the weekend after. SSB under these conditions? No, I’d rather spend the weekend outside than on a splatter infested 20m band. Not to mention 40m SSB.
