Hi guys!

First of all I would like to thank 9A7A guys to give me opportunity to work from this fantastic
contest superstation. Special thank to Sam 9A3OS who was my liaison officer to other guys, to Vinko
9A3TR for preparing the station and N1MM software prior the contest, Darko 9A5X, Eugen 9A7V and all
of them for nice hospitality and taking care about me all the time during the contest. Guys I hope I
have fulfilled your expectations representing the station on the band right way.

Start on 40 was in big pileup but relatively slow regarding my ability to adapt quickly to new
environment and sound of the station. Sorry guys to wait for my response sometimes. The 3 el. 40
yagi is doing great job, so after my adaptation the rate grows up quickly. After a while I switch to
80 and 160 to try full size vertical and inv L antennas. The 300m NW beverage at 9A7A is grate - big
signals like on yagi but with very reduced noise - grate job guys. I enjoy switching between 80 and
160 till the morning and finished first night at 40.   

After the morning beauty sleep I started on 20 clicking bandmap spots and trying to develop run.
Unfortunately miss 15 opening around 1200z. So missed lots of 15 mults first day. After that 20 was
gret till local evening - 24m long yagi doing well. Second night low bands were in good shape but
with weaker signals than first night. I was very tired and may be I fell asleep sometimes on the
chair in the morning. Sorry if you call me without reply.

After the Sunday morning break I started more concentrated and take care about 15. So I made missed
mults and some runs on 15 too - 6 over 6 stack work great. Sunday afternoon 20 was good but with
slower runs. I finished contest on 40, 80 and 160 with some good openings and one new mult on 160.

All in all I enjoyed great time working from this fantastic station and in company with great 9A7A

Congrats to competitors, 9A5Y and others - it was nice to follow livescores standings. Respect to
E7DX guys for their special E7/9A5K activity.

Best 73
Sale, 9A3XV

Started out as an effort to support some of my traveling friends.  Wanted to pick up a few others to

my participation in the contest was not planned. The previous day was that I knew the date of the
competition. I arrived at the house 1 hour after starting the contest to start downloading the
latest version of n1mm and prepare everything. On this occasion, I worked with two callsigns and in
two categories.
It's been a long time since I made so many contacts in the 15-meter band. definitely the propagation
was on my side. I still do not understand how I got so many contacts.
My modest station (th3mk4 at 14 meters high and radio yaesu ft920) work without problems.
For the first time I made a very improvised session of Facebook Live showing my friends the
enjoy the competition and the way of operation
until next time

my focus was on the lower bands this time (40,80,160m) with very limited time during the 48 h
contest time (almost no 20m QSOs).
due to family obligations I could only operate during eve/night hours,however I used the opportunity
to test my 40m- DELTA Loop (horz pol) compared to the Bobtail curtain (used in the past) ... the
result was very clear : this time  85 QSOs on 40m ,before 2x QSOs on 40m (propagation could only
slighty change the factor)....as expected (but never quantified in my location)....

80 and 160m was in a good shape as well ....
in a summary:I had a nice time in the arrl cw dx contest again althoug time constraints ....

Thanks to the organizers for the contest and all who digged my qrp
signal out of the noise. This was for me a first one, no idea what
I should expect. There were stns coming back on first call, which
I could hardly copy and others which were really strong but never
recognized my sigs and cq-ed in my face. Unfortunately, 10 m was
absent and 160 m very noisy without any hopes to copy any US/VE stn.
Also 80 m was noisier than I would have wished. Nevertheless, a
valuable new experience even when it went sometimes very slowly.

dear all,
I'm so sorry, I had one double qso with N5DX; the first was at 22.37 UTC and the double at 23:03
I couldnt dlete this qso; I know it is not countable. In the final result it is without points.
Shall I delete it? maybe no
It will be a pleasure to get informations about handling of double qso.

The ARRL DX contests are always enjoyable; this was no exception.
Great LF conditions, with the newly-repaired NW beverage proving
invaluable. 15m was open for a good while on both days, better on
Sunday with some great WC signals before the band closed. One of the
highlights of the weekend was a QSO with NR4M on 10m - they were in
here for some considerable time (in/out for at least 30 minutes) and
at a decent strength, but absolutely nothing else from NA; very like
"spotlight propagation" that we sometimes get on 6m. Anyway, the last
two storm seasons here have resulted in an awful lot of expense and
effort to keep the station running, so it was great to be on - thanks
to all for the QSOs!

That was a good workout. I used a bit of SO2R but mostly to check the
state of other bands before changing. Of the nightime bands, 40m was a
bit disappointing until the last two hours. 80m and 160 were both
great. And the daytime bands I heard nothing on 10m but 15m was open
on both afternoons here plus 20m was very good although lost
propagation early on Sunday.

Greetings from South America,  Another of my Ecuador contest operations is now in the books.  I
threw in the towel an hour early, as 20 meters died pretty quickly around 2300Z here, which is the
same as EST and I just wasn't up to fighting the noise on 40, which is almost always about S7.  My
original goal was to shoot for a million points, but missed that, probably due to horrible
conditions the first night and likewise Sunday a.m.  Saturday conditions were excellent on 15 meters
during daylight, and when the Europeans were through and people quit pointing their beams at Europe,
I had some good runs of 120-130 an hour.  I ran 100 watts from my K3 into to a Mosley TA32 Junior on
20 and 15 and into a Butternut HF2V for 40 and 80.  The beam is mounted on a 30 foot bamboo pole, so
it's not all that high, but the house sits at 8,000 feet in a valley between two 17,000 foot
mountains.  The valley points right at the US, so I never have to rotate it for the ARRL DX contest.
 Thanks to all MWAers who broke the pile ups.  I worked several MN stations on two or three bands
and WA0MHJ and N0IJ on all four bands.  Tomorrow I will take down the antennas and pack up.  I'll
should be back in Minnesota Wednesday evening.  Thanks to all for your contacts and your dit dit

I QSOed 5 stasions in 2017.
I QSOed 38 stasions in 2018.
I QSOed 15 stasions in 2019.
It is very difficult to QSO with U.S.A. stations using low
power RIG.
I strong desier to low power categoly in sigle band!!
When the sunrise time at the westcoast in the U.S.A. , I could
not heare the singal of U.S.A station in top band.
I used my MV (Micro Vertical antenna) 12mHigh on my blcony +
Elecraft K2  tranceiver.
My MV antenna was only 3.6m length and it was up only 12m
high from my balcony of my small condminium.
I was surprised that I could QSO many U.S.A. stations with
my MV antenna!

With so many stations calling CQ with their autokeyer faster than TTY at 50 or more WPM, I'm really
having a hard time distinguishing between ... or .... (S or H), and between .... or ..... (H or 5).

I believe they are costing themselves a lot of invalid contacts and a significant loss of points due
to penalties because the stations they work enter the wrong callsign in their logs.
I frequently don't call a station and move on when I am not sure of their callsign.

K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care
retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. N3UM and
W3GB did Multi-2 in the 2019 ARRL DX CW. Feedline to our 40m.
beam is shorted atop the tower. The 40m. dipole a few feet over
the shack roof loaded fine, but any power > 500 W. glitched one
logging computer. At 00Z start N3UM tried to run on 40 but got
only 15 Qs in 0.5 hr, so he clicked spots and did better, 111 Qs
on 40m. and 21 Qs on 160m before QRT at 0331Z to sleep. W3GB
clicked mults on 20m. 00-01Z then stayed for the late shift till
0638Z, getting 128 Qs on 80m. and 65 more Qs on 40 and 160m. for
353 Qs and 189 mults at QRT. N3UM came in at 12Z to find our new
log computer useless; dead power supply. He ran 92 EUs on 20m.
at 78/hr 1230-1341Z, until W3GB came and took over 20m. while
N3UM did a quick re-connect and bootup of our recently retired
old Win XP box. Then N3UM got 84 Qs and over 40 mults on 15m. by
22Z, surprising with SFI only 72. W3GB did better on 20m, 209 Qs
and lots of mults by 22Z. W3GB then did 40m. while N3UM took a
break and then stayed for late shift. He got just 67 Qs due to
high QRN and weak low-band signals 04-0620Z. Just 24 hr. earlier
W3GB saw better conditions and got 96 Qs 04-0640Z. Daytime Sun.
was (no surprise) slow; our best 1-hr. totals were 41 and 44 Qs.
But, we had fun chasing rare and/or distant mults on 15 and 20m.
like 9G, HB0, JA, KH2, PY0F, V5, VK, ZL, and then RI1ANL on 2
bands at a Russian Antarctic base. We got 15% fewer Qs than we
did in 2018 but claimed only 8% fewer points because we got 8%
more multipliers. With the computer failure and our fallback
40m. setup ~10 dB down in Tx, we were pleased with the results.

At the bottom of the sunspot cycle, I didn't have high hopes for the contest this year, but the
bands were in great shape, especially on Sunday. Operating from Nebraska, a fairly popular
multiplier, I had the pleasure (and displeasure!) of being on the receiving end of major
"cluster-created" pileups...always an interesting phenomenon. Call CQ multiple times without answer,
then finally have a single QSO and on the very next CQ, instant, and completely unruly, pileup zero
beat on my frequency. Twenty minutes later, no calls. Rates from 0 to 120/hr in an instant. Things
would be so much nicer to have just one call per CQ for the duration of the contest! (Dream on!) But
I won't complain! Thanks to all who patiently waited (and didn't call incessantly!)  100W, IC-7610,

Nice contest, but on 80m some stations would benefit to listen more and call less and also use
narrow filters.
Noted a number of stateside stations calling cq, but not able to hear callers despite good
conditions and solid signals. Think these stations would benefit from narrowing the rx bandwidth and
also do some more listening before calling cq again. This is particularly important on 80 m where
noise and weak signals are the rule.

This is was my first "real contest".  I am finishing the CWAcademy Level 2 course to get my speed up
and man am I glad I did that for this contest.  I intended to spend a few hours and see if I could
get 40 or 50 contacts.  This was the perfect weekend as my wife and my oldest went away for the
weekend to visit our youngest daughter.  I had the house to myself.  
I finished with just under 400 contacts.  I switched over to running about midway, a few hours into
that, I threw out my notepad and relied entirely on my logging program (Skookum).  I know I could
have done a million things better but I had a blast.
Thanks for putting this on and lighting up the bands this weekend.

Conditions were much better than expected. I spent my entire time packet
pouncing as I do not run in CW contests. It was amazing fun to work DX stations
with 100 watts on 80 and 40. I went to 40 meters at 4 PM local to work EU
stations on both days. I never bothered to check 10 meters as I did not want to
waste time there. It was amazing fun to try to change the band map to all red.
I came close a few times.

Thanks to all the DX stations in Europe with good ears who answered my calls and
made it all such fun.

I never had so many stations call me by name before, Usually it's 2 or 3 for the
entire contest, but this time it ws more than 10.  My head was so big I had trouble
taking off the head phones.  Actually, I suspect that more stations were running
QRZ in the background during the contest this year.  But it was gratifying
to believe that I had finally become a contest celebrity.

Heard or saw spots for many Owls - K2RB, KA2D, K2QMF, KS2G, N2GA (worked the African
that I never got)and K2QMF.

N4ZR   Contact Moderator
The last time W1LWH and I operated together was during one weekend of the 1959
ARRL DX Contest, so for the 60th anniversary we decided on a reprise.  Our
average age then was 17 - you can do the math.

N4ZR is the better of the two stations, but still pretty modest except for the
big amp.  That's what you do when you know the antennas are likely to remain
modest.  The situation was also complicated by line noise to our West that ran
S8-S9 on all bands where we couldn't point the beam away.  That meant that we
had real difficulty running, so probably 90 percent of our Qs were S&P.  I'm
telling myself that when we get that cleaned up - and the power company*is*  on
the case - our low-band results should improve dramatically.  Even on 20 and 15,
we were only able to work the big guns from JA, and that was it for Asia.

160 was a real surprise.  W1LWH improvised an L network to let us feed the 40M
full-wave sloper on 160.  Even without a receiving antenna, he managed 31
countries on that band, an amazing total. Now if I can get the inverted L up and
finish the K9AY loop receiving antenna, we should be in good shape.

Lots of fun! Really nice openings on 40 to EU that even this
compromised station could partake in! Except for 10m, the
bands were in good shape. 73 Gene, N9TF

Fun Mode Weekend! With four 200' towers and Dreamland-stacks of aluminum for the high-bands, for
ARRL CW 2019 it was clearly the wide-open 40-80-160M bands that captured our imaginations this
weekend. What a thrill ride! 73 KL2A

Unsurprisingly, condx were not awfully great. 15 seems to be the new
10, HI! Got bored and decided to cut this operation in half. 23:09 on
air, 51 minutes break time in between. Tks fer the QSOs!

Best QSO was VY1AAA who called me, Thanks!!

We had HORRIBLE QRN here first night, steady S7-S9 with constant crashes S9+20DB. Had trouble
getting calls right the first time, even had to go K3? to K3LR, Hi!

Much better noise level second night but activity was sparse.
Ended up with a slightly higher score than last year despite the QRN.

Thanks to everyone who called!

Ron WQ6X cobbled a team together at last minute
as N6KI spent most of weekend at Yuma Hamfest
(Hey, stop putting nice hamfests on contest weekends !)
Our remote OPs faced lots of challenges with the typical
crappy internet speeds we suffer with in the USA....
some good runs into EU from Left Coast at times.
Both stations not manned most of time but still more
fun than running MS category for times when 2 bands
were open and we had a couple of OPs either BIC or remote

A few dozen Q's is not exactly big-gun performance but not bad for my "MacGyver" vertical consisting
of some scrap PVC pipe and a few feet of No. 22 wire scrounged from a discarded string of Xmas
lights.  You never know what might work until you try it.  You will make contacts and have fun in
the process.  As Thoreau wrote, "Some men fish their entire lives without realizing it's not fish
they're after."

The propagation on 15M was much better towards NA than I expected.
The East Coast was coming in with rather strong signals on late
Sunday afternoon roughly about one hour before the sunset here.

However the highlight of the contest was once again the night time
15M propagation over the North Pole to the West Coast. This time
around the local midnight on Saturday/Sunday night I managed to
log K7JR, K7RL, W6YX, N5CR, VA7ST, NA6O, W7RN and N6ZFO. Thank you
very much for pulling me out of noise. It was much easier after
your antennas were pointing towards EU instead of Japan :) I heard
dozens of other West Coast stations but they were doing only S&P
and never called CQ :(

It was awesome contest as always, supported with very good CONDX (respecting current sunspot cycle
phase). I was surprised what I can do with LP and multiband antennas. I made 28 of my US friends on
5 bands and 85 on 4 bands... 
It was very interesting to compare all my antennas headed to the same direction. I was playing with
instant switching of all beams I have got (3-el ECO, 2/4-el Quad Cubex and 3-4-4-6 el. yagi by
Antenna Depot). I already know that Cubex does not work well on 20/15/10 but I was little surprised
that on 40m 2-el. quad was always weaker than 3-el. yagi at the same height (25m / 82 ft.). It
confirms that I definitely have to rebuild the Cubex to other dimensions (I like StatusQuad design -
http://www.statusquad.it/eng/). BTW the AD-3446 works VERY well and mechanically is also very well
Thank you all for calling me or answering my call!

max CW output. Condx on 15m were moderate for few hours. Most of the time the band was closed in the

small signal. Just a few I called many times but no reply. Thank you all fr fb qso73 Eric - pa2reh.

Initially I was going to support our clubstation, but health issues during the last  two weeks kept
me from doing that.
So I decided to work on collecting some states on 40m where I just recently installed an Inverted-L.
Note any higher than 5m is not allowed by local regulations and   neighbors only just accept it. To
give it a push I decided to fire up an old amplifier  and make 400W. Well that does make a
difference as reverse beacon showed during  several A/B testing on abt 25 skimmers a difference of 8
dB on average.  Saturday did  offer several states on 40m as well as also 20m.
On Sunday even 15m offered an opening of abt one hour. In total this weekend was about 
experimenting and setting things up in the shack, which worked FB.

I've got opportunity, to use S50E contest location for Saturday
by day, so logical choice was 20m band, with 5el beam and
FT-2000D and 1,5kW linear amplifier. Maybe I began a little too
late, because when I start, signals from USA were already there.
This was my first ARRL DX CW contest, with HP and relative good
working conditions. From time to time, rates were high, and I
ended with cca 370 QSO in the log. Signals slowly vanished, so it
would be torture, without need! Weather was nice, temperatures
too high for this time of season. Hope to be there next year.

A bucket-list event in many ways. First trip to a Caribbean island, first time operating a pileup
from the other end, first time operating a 48-hour contest, and many more.

Ever since I was a teenage ham, I dreamed of operating in a DXpedition. Combining that dream with my
interest in contesting lead me look for a DX location to operate the ARRL DX CW contest, somewhere
close to the USA. My first choice of YS fell through which lead me to search the Internet for rental
shacks. I was very fortunate to hook up with Laurent, FM5BH, who has a Top 10 producing station in
Martinique. Laurent has a fantastic station in his home; it's not a hotel or AirBnB, but part of his
home. He doesn't rent to casual tourists, only hams! I received advice from Laurent and a number of
his other guests from the past. Thanks for all the advice!

Leading up to the contest, I operated casually, entered into two CWT mini-tests, while familiarizing
myself with the station. Every time I got on the air there were huge pile-ups. I worked mainly
simplex pileups to train for the contest. I also worked a few split-frequency pileups, especially
when working EU. 

While not operating, I enjoyed a few visits to the beach and went snorkeling  where I saw lots of
beautiful fish and sea turtles. Laurent guided me to some great local restaurants as well. The day
of the contest I headed out to see Mont Pelee, the island volcano. On the way back, in the last mile
before returning to the shack, my car was hit from behind in a roundabout. I spent two hours dealing
with the other driver and the rental car company filling out forms and replacing the car. That was
some un-needed stress, but I tried to remain calm and brush it off - I was not going to let it spoil
my weekend. I came back and tried to take a nap before the start of the contest but I was too

I won't elaborate on band conditions or specific events in the contest, but I will say that this
station is incredible. I was loud on every band and had no problem holding a run frequency.
Fortunately, the pileups weren't bad at all but I had a very good rate. The only time it got
somewhat difficult is when I was spotted, then the pileup suddenly grew! The station is fully SO2R
capable but this operator is not. Instead, I used the second radio to monitor band conditions, which
lead me to the 3 (!) Q's on 10m! It also facilitated quick band changes, as I could prepare radio 2
while operating radio 1. It was like I was given the keys to a Fereri but used to driving a Chevy! 

I operated 37.5 out of 48 hours, sleeping 2-3 hours each night and taking a number of 20-30 minute
naps when I felt it necessary. My goal was to make at least 4,000 Q's, something I've never done
before. A few more Q's and I could have had a score over 4M. 

Thank you Laurent for the use of your station and thanks everyone for all the Q's. It was the trip
of a lifetime.

Back in my home QTH after a year in an apartment while we built the house. Now the rebuilding of
VE3HG contest station begins with a new FlexRadio 6600 which BTW was out of the box and on the air
within 15 minutes with most of that time spent getting my home network up and running. Spent last
week in -5 degree C throwing up a Par End-Fed 20/40 wire and a RadioWavz 40-10 Windom. Both were at
about 25' and both work very very well considering I'm rebuilding my 50' tower with a TA-33 with
40-meter extensions and I'll be using that setup by mid summer hopefully. The Flex 6600 is an
amazing piece of gear. I've run Flex 1500 and 3000 for a long time but nothing prepared me for the
ability of the 6600 to S&P across a very active 40-meter band and listen to one signal at a time
even those which were very weak and were surrounded by kilowatts on either side and there never
being a signal I couldn't hear clearly if it was detectable above the noise. I know some of the
other top-of-the-line rigs have this capacity but this is the first time I've experienced. The
overall feel is the 6600 is very much like my 3000 but on steroids. I can understand some don't like
the new technology but I'm thrilled and will be working on the station for the next few months.

The all-wire antenna station at  W3HKK included an IC7610-TenTec Centurion amp at 800w out, plus
SAL-30  and  305' Beverage rx antennas, plus N1MM+ software. Age of op=77 yrs.

Operating style was a concession to  the mounting years:  ie casual  S&P,  focusing on 160m ( 52'
1/4 wave INV-L), then 40 and 20m (  2 el phased vertical arrays), with a little help from 80m ( qtr
wave INV-L)  and 15m ( the 20m PA works great there too.)  

CNDX: 160m  was fair at best into EU.  80m seemed good but I always tend to minimize time there in
favor of 40/20.  40m was again my main band, closely followed by 20m.  Cndx to Asia were only
marginal this year, however.  And  prop to EU  became watery post 11pm here in Ohio. 15M was a
shadow of its former self, and 10m did not produce a single contact.

Still, being able to  move from band to band kept things interesting enough to produce  just under
22 hrs of operating time, which didnt seem too fatiguing.  
Using N1MM+'s  spots  for new calls and new multipliers facilitated things on Day 2, rather than
tuning in one direction.

For the bottom of the sunspot cycle, this was a very successful contest and  great fun.

new problem exists in antenna switch, so a few minutes spent fending off Murphy.
Heard more EU stations on 160m than ever before from this QTH.

Using an internet link to remotely control W5FMH South Texas Remote DX Club
station had the usual problems with delay kind of made it challenging...
anticipating the correct instant to transmit, occasional dropouts but not that
bad. I have become more accustomed to operating remote than being in front of

My first ARRL DX CW Contest. I love to participate in QRP
contest, so I took all band for QRP participation, although in my
class I am limited to 80, 40, 15 and 10m band, and the only
possible band to work with in Indonesia right now is 40m band. At
first I thought I want to participate in single band single op,
but then I changed my mind to submit the log to all band single
op so that I can participate in QRP sub category. So I run QRP
just for fun and making as many US contacts as possible.

All but one QSO with 100W. 15m was marginal, 20m was great on Sunday evening.
Amazed by OPs who heard my low power, low dipole signal on 80m.

Well this was a contest to remember! First off I had just been diagnosed
with cancer the week before and was scheduled to start chemo and radiation
treatment on the Wednesday before the test when the radiation machine
broke down and gave me the weekend as a respite! I then connected my
computer to the rig and just could not get the keying function to operate.
I was about to call it a day and give up on the test when I remembered
that I did still have a straight key available and decided to use it for the
test using the N1MM logger only as a logging aid. So ended up making a few
less contacts but still had a lot of fun.  The lack of sunspots sure made it
hard on the high bands with nothing at all on 10m and only a few 15m contacts.
Made up for it on 40 and 80 though.  Used an inverted L on 80m, a pair of
phased MOXON antennas on 40m, a 4 el yagi on 20m, a 3 el yagi on 15m and a
5 el yagi on 10m (not that it helped!). Rig was an ICOM736 with 100 watts
barefoot. Thanks for all the fun and hope to make it to next year's test!
