9A/Croatia (9A1TT) is a www.RemoteHamRadio.com station that
members may operate remotely.  Rig consists of a FLEX-6300
driving an OM2000A+ 1500W amp.  160m antenna is a 31.5m vertical
with a top hat and 6 radials elevated 6m.  A 4 square is provided
for 80m and separate beams are provided for 40, 20, 15 and 10m.
W, NW, N and NE beverages are provided for 160, 80 and 40m RX.

slow due to excessive EU QRM.  Saturday was the most productive
day because W/VE stations were working me for Croatia.  Sunday
was very slow because most W/VE stations had already worked me on
20m, the only band open until Croatian sunset.  It was 2-3 hours
after 20m was dead before 40m opened.
the FRC for the custom Telnet filter they provided for my
location as well as numerous N1MM+ tips that they provided.
These were no doubt contributing factors to my highest number of
QSOs ever in a contest.

Ice storm damaged 160m antenna and receive antennas, so I decided
operte low power.  Sometimes tough going against the many using
more than 100watts.  10m was open to SA, while 15m was open to
parts of EU on Saturday, but Sunday these paths did not
materialize, but had some N/S propagation.  Noise levels on
40m/80m were extremely quiet at my QTH.  Maybe the ice caused the
power line noise to disappear Friday night and Saturday.  Noise
came back Sunday afternoon causing havoc (S7-S9), but was able to
dig many callsigns out.  Thanks for bearing with my low power
(100W).  Low power on 80m makes thinhs challenging, but many on
the other side had good ears.  Thanks all of the QSOs and had fun
as usual putting more time in, but not stirring many QSOs when
running, so spent lots of time S&P. 73

Operating conditions:
I worked with an old Kenwood TS430S without any filter and my loved Russian key. The antenna was a
Carolina Windom (short version) at 6 meters height. It's exciting, just a little tricky to maintain
the transmission cadence for a long time without making mistakes. There is no rush, it is about
enjoying the moment, living the contact.

Due to time restrictions I entered the SB-40 category. More than half of the QSOs were done within
the first 4 hours (700+). From that time on the conditions dropped so that I decided to take a
break. The rest of the 567 QSOs took approx. 12 hours so not much fun anymore. See you next year
maybe in all band category.
Take care and stay safe from the virus.

Nice conditions on Saturday (in solar minimum). But only 5 !!! qsos on Sunday - all with qtf to
Southamerica and all of them were very weak and a struggle. During 5 hours no one heard my cqing in
Northamerica - not even a skimmer. On Sunday also the big guns (w3lpl, k1ttt, ...) were very weak -
glad to work them on Sat with good signals.

HF never stops surprising me. Highlight was a 10m skew path (beaming
South America) opening Saturday well after dark. Worked 77 stations in
25 states in all call areas except W0 (K0RF did not hear my call) and
W7 (only worked AZ). Sunday evening the opening was there but much
weaker, except for N4BP and N6SS which I heard for hours. Looking
forward to the next ARRL DX CW.

Due to travel restrictions the remote operation was the only choice to participate in this CW fiesta
from perfect ED8W site. To keep things simple, the SOSB on 20m was the best option considering the
condx. Setup worked perfectly (IC-7610 with N1MM+). I was feeling like playing video game, sometimes
the band condx were like in morse runner cw practising mode, no QRM just loud signals from US/VE one
after another in nice rate...hi. Manolo EA8DO spent the w/end in the shack, supervising the station
and keep pushing me to the limit. Without his huge effort and help it would not be possible. My
thanks goes to the station owners Mari EA8LF and Manolo EA8DO, our second family on the Isla La

Thank you for taking the time to decode my signals in the noise.
Unfortunately no qso on 160 and on 10m due to a very lower propagation.
A successful weekend and above my expectations with this little setup.

J'ai pris plusieurs heures de mon temps de travail pour renvoyer un état des liaisons et au final
je constate que 0 points. Le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que pour le nouveau opérateur radio
que je suis j'ai perdu mon temps. Au lieu de mettre à zéro, une adresse pour demander comment
faire serait bienvenue. J'ai bien contacté les stations indiquées et je pense que vous trouverez
confirmations dans leurs journaux. A l'avenir, à moins que quelqu'un ait la gentillesse de me
répondre et de m'aider j'éviterai cette activité.

I took several hours of my working time to send back a link state and in the end I see 0 points. The
least we can say is that for the new radio operator that I am I wasted my time. Instead of zeroing,
an address to request a comment would be welcome. I have contacted the recommended stations and I
think you will find confirmations in their logs. In the future, unless someone is kind enough to
answer me and help me I will avoid this activity.

Full remote operation for all operators. With VOIP and delay, it was
not easy to decode weak signals distorded by poor propagation. Our 40m
antenna broke during the contest, but we managed to fix it before the
end, and enjoyed nice run for few hours.

Not a serious effort (as is clear from the log...) but took a few trips into the shack (a) to keep
my hand in, and (b) to give out a few points. Conditions not good. 20m was my best (perhaps I should
say least worst) band. Some strong S. Americans on 15m here in South London but very few W/VE. No
W/VE heard on 10m. Of course, an inverted L with a 50ft top 20ft up doesn't help :-)

G4BUO   Contact Moderator
Not sure whether to do a full-on entry, but the first hour made the
decision for me! I went back to bed and got up at 5am, when topband
was in good form, but the rest of the weekend was a real struggle.
Looks like I missed an opening late on 15m on Saturday, but Sunday
was a washout. The last hours were a struggle with most 40m signals
down in the noise. You'd call a weak W and then he'd get even weaker
when he replied! UK definitely too far north when conditions are
so disturbed. At one point on Saturday I noticed that every signal
from Tennessee had auroral flutter, but W8s and VE3s had pure
signals. Very odd.
G4RMV   Contact Moderator
No Beams, no Towers just a wire G5RV at 10m ASL 27m Total Antenna Height 37m (120' ASL). Radio ICOM

conditions allowed.

Note: Two Canadian stations gave "MAR" which has been changed in the log
to "NS" as MAR was not acceptabe to the logging programme
Generally poor conditions - southern Europe had much better propagation
than those of us in the North. Hard work at times.
G6XX   Contact Moderator
Two contrasting days. Saturday had propagation on 15m and even one QSO
on 10m but Sunday had none of either; would have been more fun if the
best had been saved for the end rather than conditions deteriorating
through the weekend.
G8NSZ   [photo/doc]   Contact Moderator
Band conditions not sparkling, especially QRP.  Using FT-817ND and EFHW.  Too many strong EU contest
stations on Day 1 so just an hour or so of operating on the second day when all the strong stations
had already worked each other:-)

Great fun and great opportunity for some qrp dx!  On Saturday I used my K2 running 5w to a home made
hexbeam and on Sunday my kx3 also running 5w to my hexbeam.  Nice conditions and I kept going until
the strong signals were all dupes.  Tried running every now and then but barely registered on the
RBN and no one came back so I stuck to S&P- some fine ops with great ears out there, thanks to all
who made the effort to gig my qrp sig out of the noise.  73, Peter GM0EUL

K3CCR   Contact Moderator
K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care
retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. N3UM and
W3GB operated Multi-2 in 2021 ARRL DX CW. We hoped to beat our
2020 result of 1324 Qs, 361 mults, and 1.43 M claimed, our best
since high-SFI years 2018 and before. We did that, by just 3%;
1.225X as many Qs but 0.84X as many mults in 1.38X more BIC hrs.
Kp of 3-4 gave low Q rates on 160 thru 40 M, but SFI of 75 gave
high rates on 20 and 15 M. Our mult deficit was probably partly
due to ~2X fewer special operations, due to covid travel limits.
At start 00-0420Z, N3UM as usual ran for bulk Qs on 40 M and
then on 80 M for 195 Qs, and W3GB as usual clicked spots for
mults and “always-CQ” ops on 80 and then 40 M. After 0420Z N3UM
left to sleep and return early. W3GB then did 40, 80, and 160 M
for 212 total Qs at 0833Z QRT. Back early, N3UM ran EUs on 20 M
for 301 Qs 1238-1628Z. W3GB 1612-00Z got 201 Qs, 161 on 20 M and
40 on 15 M. N3UM 1924-2212Z got 151 Qs on 40M, 124 in a run.
W3GB got 43 Qs on 40 and a last 10 on 20 M 00-04Z and left for
sleep and early return. N3UM got 161 Qs on 40 thru 80 M slow but
steady 0050-0615Z, 105 of them on 80 M. W3GB got good EU rates
on 20 M early Sun. AM; 158 Qs 1230-17Z. Then 17-00Z on 20 and 15
M, W3GB got 84 last Qs and 9 mults, now mostly in SA and AS. On
40 M 1925-00Z N3UM ran for 69 of 105 slow last Qs, and 2 mults.
W3GB got 41% of our Qs but 55% of our mults.

Conditions alternated between interesting and brutal.  Took a long nap Saturday night after going 25
minutes without a QSO.  Probably missed a lot at European sunrise.  Condx improved markedly for the
last few hours with good openings on 20 and 15 to Asia and the first ZL on 10m in years.  Ice storm
damage to the rotating 15m and 10m yagis made things difficult, but there was only limited
propagation there.  New SE line noise limited 10m only to loud stations.  However, it was a great
weekend to be on the air!

Great contest as always with decent conditions
overall.  I was pleased to be able to work into JA
on all bands except 10.  JA on 160 were few on
Saturday morning, but there were more and
stronger on Sunday.  JA stations on 80 and 40
were plentiful and strong, even some running
QRP.  Many more on 20 and 15.  Overall, 437
of my 915 contacts were JA, good to have all
that activity and favorable conditions to that part
of the world (also worked 70 additional stations
in Asia).   Eu signals on 20 were abundant
but not as many strong signals as in the past
(125 20m Eu contacts this time, 284 in 2019).
I called CQ on Sunday and got a handful of Eu
responses - all fairly weak despite each running
500 watts or more.  The exception were EA
stations, there were many and almost all were
quite strong.  I called many other Eu stations
with 700 watts and a 4 element yagi who either
struggled to pull me out or couldnt even hear me.
On 80 meters, I only worked 4 Eu, compared to
2019 when I worked 55. Without more Eu my
overall mult count was way down.

Thanks to everyone for the QSOs.   dana

I have to call this contest listening to the eastern USA working EU.
Few EU statins heard compared to previous years. Some Northern EU
stations had a wierd flutter making more diffucult to copy.
I could hear Eastern USA work EU but cud not hear the stations they worked.
In the afternoons props switched to AS/OC. Some of the usual stations
were not heard. Only one DU, HS in the log. The usual JA's, a couple
of HL, no YB, T8, KH0, VK. ZL came thru good.

Wow! It still amazes me how well a motivated operator with 100W

and not noisy for a change. I called CQ lots and ran rate on all
bands but 160 and 10. Even managed a pile up to EU Sunday morning
(Woke too to late Sat for EU) The pile ups to JA on 80/40/20 & 15
were awesome with many JA stations on 4 and even 5 bands. Never
really felt under powered except during the transition periods
from EU to JA. That's when I napped a couple hours without much
ill effect. Thanks to all who answered my calls. 73s from N NV!

not worked.  I did hit 10M for just a couple of contacts on

Enjoyed the contest very much.  I do have one comment.  When attempting to contact other US
operators, at times I would get SRI DX, NO US, or even once I got NO.  I understand that if they're
sending their call followed by DX, then I would not attempt to contact them.  However, many of these
ops are just sending their call signs without DX and then will not confirm your contact.  The time
spent sending SRI DX or the like could very well have been spent confirming your call.  To myself,
this seems rude when they do this if their call is not followed by DX.  I find this often in
contests and find it somewhat irritating but try to let it go and go on to the next contact.

Thanks again for the great contest.

If the score holds up it's a new Puerto Rico M/S HP record last broken in 2013. It's very satisfying
to design, build, install and maintain a station that works contest after contest without any
equipment or antenna failures.
Finally had a decent, but short lived, ten meter opening that allowed 53 stations to work us on 6
bands. Equipment- Elecraft K3S, KPA1500 (1kw output), Roof mounted Cushcraft A4 Tribander, Wire

With A index between 17 and 20, too much noise to make up for the

would be more fun.  Found 2 Q's on ten to get P44W and NP2X in
the log on 5 bands.  Found HI3T giving out 04 for his power with
a good QRP signal.  Since I now have internet, I tried Unlimitted
for the 1st time.  That helped keep things interesting for me.

I was originally going to put in a multi-band entry but when I heard nothing from across the Pond on
40 and found conditions dreadful on 20, I decided to put in a single band effort. Conditions were
poor with many fluttery signals from northern stations and relatively weak signals from those I'd
expect to be much stronger.

This plus living next to a four storey tenement block with all the electronic junk they run, didn't
make life easy, but it was good fun all the same. Here's hoping for better next year! 

Apologies to those I missed/lost due to the above.

Disappointed with poor conditions. Didn't hear anything on 10m or 15m. 20m was rammed and virtually
impossible to get a run frequency, especially with only 100w.......40m was similar.  On the up side
I had a lot of fun digging out weak ones and really putting my FTdx101 through it's
paces.....verdict, it's excellent!
I'll be back for CW next year! Fingers crossed for improved conditions for SSB.
Thanks to all for the QSO's.

Nice to see 10 Meters open Saturday despite the solar flux in the low 70's. K index was 4.
Geomagnetic field active, which may have boosted the MUF. 

HH2AA over s-9 and in for hours. ZF1A and HP3SS also nice and loud. I ran a minimalist station. A
"Tuna 2" QRP transmitter at 5 watts and old TS-850 to receive. Antenna Radio Shack CB mag. mount on
patio Weber BBQ grill lid. When 10 is open, even a simple set up can make some contacts. Best DX was
to CE2ML, LU2FE and
N0XFD   Contact Moderator
Clearly my setup was not conducive to intercepting DX stations. I was able to hear just about every
CONUS station that was operating and could only make out a handful of DX stations. I managed to only
make two DX contacts. Fortunately these were locations I had never reached before so that ticked
some entities off of my list. The multi-band di-pole is currently only slightly slanted down towards
the ends. A 90 degree or so of the triangle would likely prove better results, come spring thaw will
see what adjustments can be made.

Had fun getting setup for CW (RX and TX). A mode I do not usually operate on so I was relying on the
computer for the RX and TX. -73s Charlie N0XFD

Anti-kudos go to the operators who, especially late in the contest
when I have already worked most of the stations that I hear, run long
streams of QSO's without identifying! It's very annoying when I
listen to a station for five minutes, thinking its a rare one, only to
find out, when he finally identifies, that I've already worked him.

manage four 10 meter QSOs, and I had
the most QSOs, and Countries, on 15m.
20m seemed below-par both days. (?)
Thanks to all for the QSOs and your
patience with my QRP in these tough
and challenging radio conditions!

Winds moved my antenna and it was stuck south which is not the
best direction...hihi...still fun even tho the count was low...

The Elecraft K4D and KPA1500 have way more stamina than I do these
days.  Terrible conditions with K Index at 4 almost the entire 48
hours.  Some good low band long path to Europe in the morning though.
N7EPD   Contact Moderator
Guess the K index was around 4 all weekend and coupled with
travel restrictions the mult count was really low this year.
Thought there was hardly anyone left to work Sunday morning.

A limited-time S&P effort, mostly looking for new ones.  Didn't find any, thanks to COVID I imagine.
Nice to catch 10-meter openings to the Caribbean, S. America and ZD7, however.

4 hours 10 minutes with an IC-705, TA-54-XLN-6, and Carolina Windom 160. Both antennas up 10m. Fun!
IC-705 surprisingly good contest radio, for QRP, of course.

Running my K3 at 5 watts to an 80 meter doublet at
30 feet.  Best DX heard, but not worked, was
VK1FOC on Saturday afternoon.  Surprised that there
was anyone on 10 meters.  Pete, NO2D.

Flex 6600 with Expert 1.3k-fa. JK Mid Tri 40 at 100ft, 4 sq on 80 and shunt fed tower on 160. Also 7
beverages.  Only short activity due to family obligations. But great run on 80 around 05Z and same
on 20m around 15Z. The run on 80 was especially rewarding because it made the time investment into 4
sq justified.

Activity level was disappointing, at least on 160.
Missed ND , DC and several VE's

It is a typical pattern: Often, when I'm looking forward to something, it doesn't work out for some
reason. It was the case of this contest. I built a new stack toward US/CA (AD3446 over AD346) and
prepared my shack quite well before the contest. Friday night was promising, but what happened on
Saturday night and Sunday on 40, 20, and 15 was a disaster. I don't remember such bad CONDX. Since
1700Z, I was not able to make ANY QSO to the US! I tried and waited till the end of the contest... I
heard some stations to make QSO, but nobody heard me. I hope I will gain some energy for the next
one because THIS ONE was not fun at all.

sharing the station with my YL PA5CT gives 2 logs as sosb.
All though RX from a very small city lot and TX with an
inv-L surrounded by houses is far from ideal still managed
to have my share of fun. It is always a pleasure to work across

Participated only during greyline 80m and during daylight hours

not optimal with K values of 4 over the weekend.

Conditions were just awful due to a solar storm. Some (loud)

propagation. Next year better I hope.

Working from S54E contest location, with my FT-2000, SPE 1.3k-FE
Linear Amplifier, and 4-sq antena for 80 m which is S54E
construction, with one beveridge to USA direction. More  tiny
signals from USA, and especially from VA, then strong ones, but
workable. This was my first, a little more serious aproach to
this contest. Hope to be here next year too!

Basic, fixed wire antenna, 100W and a geomagnetic storm.. here's my story.
On Saturday all signals from area 9 had a distinctive, auroral flutter.
On Sunday it was becoming hard to find new stations, so I decided to run - which provided an
unexpected, high QSO rate - even if it was just 25 minutes.
Strong signals from the eastern half of American continent and a single K0RF from the West. I can't
blame it all on the aurora, it's time for a proper antenna :)
Many thanks for all the contacts!

Hi There

I have submitted my SINGLE BAND 160m CW log for ARRL DX CW three times already and the file I get

This is not correct - my entry is SINGLE BAND 160M CW HIGH POWER UNASSISTED.

Please ensure my log is treated as MONO 160m only and NOT ALL BAND.
My score is 504 qso's - 57 mults = 86,184 Points FINAL SCORE.

Would like to flag the organizer that on 02/20/21 between 16.32UTC and 18.10UTC unfortunately I
randomly used the proper call W2AW, but also my personal call N2GM by mistake. At 18.10UTC I
realized that and I corrected the message in the logging program. 
Also I tried to fix the log by removing some of the dupes reported, and sent also a separate log
under N2GM,  but probably there are still mixture between these two logs!
Sorry for this "complication"!

After moving to a new QTH in 2012. I set up my ham shack and put up a G5RV wire antenna at 25 feet.
From 2000 to 2009 I operated QRP in the ARRL 10 meter,160 meter and ARRL DX CW contests. AT my old
QTH I had a 70 foot tower and a Force 12 yagi. So I decided to see how well I could do with a wire
antenna 25 feet high running QRP. I made 115 contacts and 67 multipliers, I operated 80,40,20 & 15
meters. On Saturday I could hear stations on 15 meters the band was poor. Sunday afternoon, 15
meters opened and I was able to get some good contacts & multipliers. Thanks for sponsoring the
contest. I like that you have a separate category for Singe Op and Single Assisted.

I'm going to assume that as long as all equipment in use is within a
500m circle *at any given instant* that the operation is in compliance
with rule STTN.2 -- that is, that it's OK for the 500m circle to
*move* during the contest as long as at any given instant, all gear is
within 500m of each other.

This was a mobile operation, with contacts made across the entire
southern half of Davidson County, Tennessee.  (Metro Nashville)

First time in this contest. Decide to go SOHP 15 meters.
I needed cw band fills on this band. Worked all I could and got
some much needed cw on 15 meters. Was not in a competitive
mood. Nice just to sit on single band and listen to prop. My NBNM
was St. Helena island with much QSB and repeats, that was fun.
Don't know ifI would have gotten him with LP.It was nice to have
my recent purchase Alpha 99 on cw with QSK. I also got to be more
:familiar with N1MM additional windows I read in  October NCJ
on S&P.  Always something to learn. Thanks for your 15 meter Q.

In between my long operating shifts @ NX6T (9:00Z -14:300z and
00:00z - 04:00z) I found time to activate WQ6X from the Fallbrook
location that was not being used this weekend (NX6T operated from
Throughout the weekend, Dennis (N6KI) elmer'ed me on the fine art
of working the hidden camera system in Fallbrook, all so I can see
the colored louvers disappear, indicating the A/C has been successfully
turned on in the amplifier den of the wiring morass in Fallbrook.
As weird as it looks, we win contests with it.
Thanks to ROTTEN QRN (Low-SFI, High K-Index) I had to dance around
the noise.
The secret to making it all work on the high bands was to point the 3-el
Stepp-IR to SA, open it up BI-directionally to include Asia and then just
Call CQ.  Occasionally KH6 or VK/ZL would creep in adding to the fun.
Sunday morning, noticing that all 3 Russian Beacons were alive on ~7.039,
pointing the antenna towards Asia, I put out a CQ on 7018.18, keeping things
alive for the next 2.5 hours.  The amazing surprise was the Northern Europeans
and Ukraine who managed to creep thru from time to time.  I want to thank the
pileups for standing by and letting their S-3 signals flutter across the pole
into my Fallbrook location; quite south, when you think about it.

While I love the exchanges, I get frustrated by the station who BARRELS
THRU with his callsign.  I send him a report and he sends his callsign
TWICE - then Nothing!  HuH?  It took 3 exchanges to make ONE 3-point QSO.
This happened repeatedly.  If you don't know the rules - READ 'EM.
If you DO know the rules then: PAY ATTENTION!

Nice contest one of my favorite about conditions were not
the greatest, but there were some entertaining moments with hearing
some stations barely S3 in bad local qrm from led ligths
so Hats off to all the fine ops whos at times, get them out of the
QRM and stood by as long as I confirm all contact information they
never give up because I am not a ultra skilled cw op Great fun..
Thanks to all for the QSO's 73 take care and see again next year

Reasonable band conditions on first day but poor on the
second which made it difficult to copy reports at
times.  The pile-ups were a challanged but enjoyed the
contest. Look forward to next year.

incredibly wide signals, in the end I just got fed up with the terrible signals and called it a

When will someone do something about these rogue stations with signals 2 or 3 khz wide, or is that
what we are expected to do?
