TI5N Wrapup


What a great contest! The ARRL CW Contest offered it all of us in Costa Rica…a little Murphy lurking at the beginning of the contest, some issues with keyers and software, great runs on all of the bands and the normal sleep deprivation.

And a bonus, for this time of the sunspot cycle: a two hour ten meter opening Sunday afternoon resulting in 120 QSO’s and 28 multipliers. Hopefully, we made those 120 hams on the other end a little bit happy. We were pretty jazzed over it all.

For our two operating positions, we hit 300 QSO’s an hour a couple of times and had great good runs on all of the bands, including 160 meters.

Our preliminary score is 6,000 QSO’s and about 5.5 million points.

And a really nice time — thanks to our hosts, Keko and Sophie.
