4th Quarter 2011 Contests

leave a comment

Usually I post contest summaries after every contest. But, as you can see, I haven’t posted much at all lately. Blogging is a burden, especially if you don’t have anything of interest to post. I typically post my contest results for the sole purpose of having my own online record of the contests I have worked. However, the 3830 reflector does a better job of archiving that kind of information than I could ever hope to.

The contests I’ve operated in [since WAG 2011] are:

  • 10/15/2011 Iowa QSO Party
  • 10/15/2011 New York QSO Party
  • 10/29/2011 CQ WW SSB
  • 11/05/2011 ARRL Sweepstakes – CW
  • 11/12/2011 Worked All Europe – RTTY
  • 11/12/2011 Kentucky QSO Party
  • 11/19/2011 ARRL Sweepstakes – SSB
  • 11/26/2011 CQ WW DX – CW
  • 12/03/2011 Tara RTTY Melee
  • 12/03/2011 ARRL 160 Meter Contest
  • 12/04/2011 10-Meter RTTY Contest
  • 12/10/2011 ARRL 10-Meter Contest
  • 12/17/2011 Croatian CW Contest
  • 12/17/2011 RAC Winter Contest

I have submitted all of those to 3830 except for the Croatian CW Contest and the RAC Winter Contest. I submitted checklogs to the sponsors for those two. Why? I was in it just for fun and didn’t want to worry about what the rules said. I just worked what I heard.

Spent too much time in working JARTS RTTY. By the time I got around to
thinking about NY, it was almost over [and I didn’t realize it]. I had high
hopes of putting some time in on 80/40. I’m disappointed in myself — from
other submitted scores it looks like there was a lot of activity that I missed.
I need to make a note for next year to prioritize this one.

Thanks for the Qs!
