RSGB BERU contest

This last weekend was the Commonwealth contest.  Only Commonwealth countries can enter and it is CW only.





My result:

Band     QSOs     Pts     Cty     Sec
 3.5         13        325      13       0
 7            66      1090      35       3
14         210      2060       50      1
21           52      1020       36      2
28             8       200         8      0


Total      349     4695      142      6
Score: 4,695
1 Mult = 2.4 Q's

Please notice the 8 entries on 10 m. Very pleasant surprise. Best part
was the 20 m run to G-land close to 100 QSOs in one hour - big buzz. The
pain was the Sunday part where I've scored only five (yes 5) in a whole
hour and in the middle of the afternoon no QSO for 1 hr 17 minutes.... 

Bonus: had one ATN (all times new county)

Comparing the last year:
           2015     2016
score  4,870    4,695
QSOs    395      349

Using the same radio + amp, antennae and operator (one year older), I can assume it may
be accounted for the declining conditions.


73 to all
