This weekend I’m at the QTH of K7ZSD on the Smoke Mountain Ranch in Oregon for the CQ WW RTTY Contest. We’re using the callsign of Hank, KR7X, and operating Multi-two for the contest.
But it’s a tough one. Out here in 7-land, the QSO’s with EU are few and far between. JA’s have been loud — but few — and the rest of the world is pretty quiet with the sunspots being what they are right now.
My personal highlight from the overnight was working 9M6XRO on 80-meters. It took about three minutes to get the callsign to print, but 9M6XRO was patient to get the QSO delivered.
It’s cool outside, but the contesting is hot inside.
I’ll catch you on the flip side of Zulu.
