START-OF-LOG: 3.0 CONTEST: WW-DIGI CALLSIGN: NN7SS LOCATION: WWA CATEGORY-OPERATOR: SINGLE-OP CATEGORY-ASSISTED: CATEGORY-BAND: ALL CATEGORY-POWER: QRP CATEGORY-MODE: DIGI CATEGORY-TRANSMITTER: ONE CLAIMED-SCORE: 16376 NAME: Mark Aaker OPERATORS: K6UFO CLUB: Northern California Contest Club CREATED-BY: WriteLog V12.43A 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.
