August – September: a couple of contests

Not very active in the blogosphere. I haven’t got much to talk about and who’s still reading this anyway? So just for the archives a/k/a my online memory…

WAECW 2021

From 3830:

I took a late start and many many breaks (a total of 22h operating). Operator tired and unmotivated. It’s often a slow contest and face it: we’re only in it for the QTC, right? Glad to see I still ‘have it’.

That’s more than last year…

RDA 2021

First time ever I participated in this contest. Propagation so-so and just seeing what it’s all about. Might be back…

YO DX HF

To close down the summer holidays. Always nice to go in and out of the shack during these contests.

SAC CW

This is the right kind of therapy: CW and no pressure. Calling CQ Is useless, just go up and down the bands and work what you can. HF Propagation was not favoring the Belgium-Scandinavia link.

I do the occasional RTTY but it gets so boring really fast. I can’t imagine what a drag FT8 must be. Not even having control over what is sent and when?

November: sure thing. I guess we have soms bandslots to tick when SFI hits 185…

73 / take care!
