CQ WW RTTY contest 2014

I've spent few hours on the most important RTTY contest of the year.  The reason that I had only few hours was previous commitment.  I was glad to get some practice and above all to hand out QSOs to the other competitors.  It is good to support the contesting fraternity.

My efforts:

The conditions were very good except a part on Sunday afternoon (local time).  Solar flare hit the earth and the bands were very dead for close to three hours (approx 12:30 to 15:00 local).

Steve VK6IR printed:  DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD ;;;;;;;;  in frustration.

This is busy band isn't it?

 

Above is about 26 kHz of the RTTY part of the 20 m spectrum.

Good fun

As expected the condx were not as good as one can hope for.  After all we are just about to hit the solar minimum. Band QSOs 160: 0 80:...
