Contest: CQ 160-METER CONTEST, CW
Class: SINGLE OP ASSISTED HP
Operating time: 10
Total: QSOs = 162 State/Prov = 43 Countries = 5 Total Score = 18,432
IC-746 PRO; AL-811 500 WATTS Antenna Restricted Community.
160M Extension added to 80M inverted L for Contest. Top horizontal section zig-zags around roof below 20 feet. 1.9 SWR 1810-1890KHz. AL-811 loaded okay.
Stations actually heard me this year. Five times the QSO's of last year with higher power. Spotting helped reduce time copying dupes, but really didn't provide a significant multiplier factor. Never thought I would work 40 states in 10 hours on 160M from an antenna restricted area. Worked a lot of OUTLAWS!!
Thanks for the Q's.
