CQ WW CQ contest 2014.

The contest finished little while ago and I just uploaded the Cabrillo file to the CQ headquarters.

Well it was good fun.  I did not do as well this year as the last year.  The reasons maybe:

  1. I'm one year older.
  2. The condx are not as good as last year (at least I feel that - the signals were not as strong). However the propagation was good.
  3. Operated from home (noisy Sydney suburb).
  4. My 40 m antenna gave me a grief - the SWR was erratic up and down and the amplifier did not like it.
  5. Can't think about any more excuses.

Here is the the 3038 report:

It was a good fun and thanks all for giving me a QSO.  I had two incredible (I
mean incredible and "life altering" by my standard) runs on 15 and 10
of about 100 plus QSOs for the whole hour and a bit.  That was a buzz. Thanks US and JA competitors for being gentlemen.  There would no be a chance to do it with EU crowd (mind you I still love them despite)

73 to all

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:...
