SOAPBOX: I'm very pleased and honored to participate in the very first
SOAPBOX: WW Digi DX Contest! As usual when I contest, I entered QRP.
SOAPBOX: I couldn't schedule to be at the station, so operated remote, with a
SOAPBOX: new internet connection just installed yesterday
SOAPBOX: lots of glitches... sigh, its sometimes hard being at the far end of
SOAPBOX: a long wire.
SOAPBOX: I got up before sunrise for the start to try low band to Asia. On
SOAPBOX: 80m worked a lot of USA West Coast
SOAPBOX: VK and KH6.
SOAPBOX: 20m busy, but I seemed to take w-a-y too many repeats.
SOAPBOX: But there were always FT4 stations to call, so I kept at it.
SOAPBOX: At one point I found my clock was 0.6 seconds slow. Yikes,
SOAPBOX: I've never had that problem, and a restart fixed it. "Maybe"
SOAPBOX: QSOs went faster with less repeats...
SOAPBOX: I would stop and check if my frequency was clear, and at
SOAPBOX: QRP it hardly ever was... so find a new freq and start again.
SOAPBOX: Otherwise, I tried to have a TX every cycle either a CQ or
SOAPBOX: to call someone. Not that it helped when QRP...
SOAPBOX: Overall, I think QRP has less of a "disadvantage" than in
SOAPBOX: other modes. If I had a clear frequency, and called in the
SOAPBOX: right cycle - I had a "reasonable" chance of getting anyone
SOAPBOX: above SNR -10 or so.
SOAPBOX: For a supposed "automatic" and "robot" mode - I sure had to
SOAPBOX: do a lot of monitoring and clicking and maintaining to keep
SOAPBOX: things working and progressing!
SOAPBOX: Family activities took up most of midday, but I contested for an
SOAPBOX: hour or two here and there.
SOAPBOX: Lots of unlogged QSOs because the sequence was messed up
SOAPBOX: and people wanted Signal Reports and didn't send RR73 so it
SOAPBOX: didn't auto-log. Rules don't require signal reports - come on!
SOAPBOX: I caught a few, but I'm sure I missed a bunch.
SOAPBOX: Tried some FT8, but not as many stations, and s-l-o-w.  I copied
SOAPBOX: Europeans on 20m FT8 but no good working them QRP from WA.
SOAPBOX: I only used the "contest" frequencies, and FT4 when I seemed to be
SOAPBOX: getting through efficiently, or switch to the FT8 when I needed more
SOAPBOX: reliability getting through. I'd guess there was twice as much FT4
SOAPBOX: action as FT8 action on the bands.
SOAPBOX: I tried CQing on 15m, but no luck. During the mid-afternoon slump
SOAPBOX: I seemed to do better on 20m FT8 scaring up some South Americans
SOAPBOX: and JA's for 3 points each!  No sunspots, A of 36! and it showed on
SOAPBOX: the bands... really weak. 40m was okay later, 80m very noisy and
SOAPBOX: weak, I copied a bunch on 160m, but couldn't get an answer.
SOAPBOX: I finally pulled the switch at 05
SOAPBOX: again before 12z. Done!
SOAPBOX: A great introductory contest for new modes and a new exchange
SOAPBOX: and scoring system. The software worked well, the operators
SOAPBOX: "mostly" worked well. I rate it an A-minus!  Thanks for the fun.
