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

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:...
