Great work QRP in this contest and thanks to all the stations that worked me. My setup was a Yaesu
FT-817ND, LDG Z817 ATU feeding an EFLW configured as an inverted, sloping 'L', which runs vertically
up a 8m fibre-glass pole and then horizontal part slopes about 14m. Nice to work so many stations
across the pond on just 5 watts.

Greetings from CA.  Not a serious contest op but I enjoy limited participation.  Could not find any
info on what a "Cabrillo Formatted Log" should look like anywhere in the contest rules or on the
ARRL site.  The Winlog32 program I use doesn't do Cabrillo very well so I have to hand edit the
information.  For example, it drops all non-numeric text in the reports columns.  So "KW" and "CA" 
have to be entered by hand. The header is left pretty much blank. 

Actually the reason I'm adding these comments is that you certainly can use me as a check log if
that serves you.  I'm not going to be competitive in any way and I honestly don't care how the input
gets used. 

73.  Had fun despite some really awful band conditions.
John, AA2HJ

Seemed like propagation was lacking on 10, while 15 opened more
on unday afternoon.  Akways seemed that propagtion favored NE USA
for SA and Caribbean stations.  Will have to contend with these
conditions a few more years.  Can't wait for 10m to open worlwide
again.

Cushcraft R-7000 to work 7 mHz.  IC-706, Yaesu rotator on homebrew crank-up mast, and N1MM+.  No
computer crashes or power failures this time.

It was the first time we participated in this contest. The condex was much worse than expected. We

I entered the fray mainly to look for new band-countries to enhance my DXCC stats,and I was pleased
to work C37NL on 40m for a new one on that band. With low power and wire antennas, the rest of the
time was spent S&P just for fun, mostly on the low bands. One highlight was snagging HB90CXZ on 75m
right at his sunrise. I copied EI7M Q5 on 160m but could not get his attention even at 
his SR. Retuning my 160m inverted-L to mid-band proved worthwhile.

Always one of my favorite contests. Limited operating time of less than 4 hours this time round but
reasonable conditions on 20m given the solar conditions/geomagnetic disturbances. 
 
Running 4 ele SteppIR in lowered position of only 40ft AGL (still not raised until WX improves!) .

Enjoyable as always! See you next year..

Disturbed magnetic condx on Friday and Saturday nights
made for very poor propagation on 80m from this QTH.
No prop. on more Northerly paths and to the West coast.
No W6 or W7 heard and only three W0 call area states worked.
Also missed AR and NM. Prop. not quite as bad as the first
night in 2008,though, which was awful.  A/K indices dropped
on the last (Sunday) night and prop. improved a lot.
Surprised but delighted to be called by VY0ERC 30mins before
the end.  Tnx. OM.  Otherwise furthest West Canadian province
was VE3.
Rig  : FT990 and Acom amp.
Ant. : 6 element vertical array.

I entry on a single-op 80m lowpower. The condition was very
poor than the last year.
I QSOed 7stations in the last year.
But I QSO only 3stations in this year.
Because I had very heavy OTH lader QRM from U.S.S.R.
That OTH lader transmit point from 42.861213°N 133.653435°E.
The Eeast of the coast in Nahotoka.
I was using only 100W and small fishing rod vertical
only 10m length antenna in my balcony of my small aprartment.
We JA ham got a new 75m band.
Please look for JA under a new 75m frequency!
3599~3612KHz 13KHz width
3680~3687KHz 7KHz width
3702~3716KHz 14KHz width
3745~3770KHz  25KHz width
I was using only 100W and small fishing rod vertical
only 10m length antenna in my balcony of my small aprartment.
I was disapointed to disapare a separating of output power
categoly each single band section. It is very difficult to get
an award on the low band in the same categoly with high power
stations!!
Please separete high power categoly and low power catagoly in
each single band.

K3CCR   Contact Moderator
K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care
retirement community at FM18OW in MD, just east of DC. N3UM and
W3GB operated Multi-2 HP in 2019 ARRL CW DX. We each had non-ham
priorities that kept us from the shack for hours. In 24.3 hrs.
on, we were both there for just 4.5 hrs. And, our Falcon 20/40m.
beam was unusable due to faults in both coax feed lines atop our
85-ft. tower. The coaxes were damaged when rotor clamp bolts
loosened and wind turned the beam back and forth. We fell back
on our C3 tri-bander and a 40m. dipole, both a few feet above
the shack roof. High power with the low antennas put RFI into
one logging computer till we swapped out a keyboard and put on
more ferrites. Less ant. height and gain meant few to no Qs when
we tried to run on 20 and 40m, so we clicked spots and tuned.
Rates were low, but it was fun to find 69 mults on 20 and 57 on
40, some rare. N3UM was away till ~16Z Sat. so W3GB started
alone. He got 62 Qs/44 mults on 40 and 13 Qs/11 mults on 80m.
0118-0549Z, then 13 Qs/11 mults on 20m. 1208-1251Z. From 1558-
1710Z N3UM got 46 Qs/29 mults on 20m, then W3GB did 20 and got
41 Qs/26 mults. N3UM got a few Qs on 40m, and at 2134Z we had
205 Qs and 126 mults. As it got dark we took supper breaks and
jumped between 20, 40, and then at 0045Z 80m. W3GB quit at 0240Z
while N3UM got slow but steady results on 80 and 160m. till QRT
at 0602Z with 317 Qs and 179 mults. Sun. daytime we got 121 more
Qs and 28 more mults. N3UM slept in but got 30 Qs and 9 mults
16-17Z on 15 and 20m, then scraped up a few Qs from among many
dupes in 3 more hrs BIC. W3GB was busy but did well in 2.1 hrs.
late PM and at the very end. Rare and/or distant mults; 5T, 9X,
ZS, and FR in AF, C3 in EU, JA, and KH2. Surprise with low SFI.
We worked 50 PY’s, nearly = our 24 EA’s and 27 I’s combined!

with our temperatures in the -25, no way I was gonna turn the beam...so left it SE and did what I
could...didn't get much Europe of course...but, actually didn't hear many on the west coast working
them either, so who knows ....10 and 15 meters were not much either, however did enjoy Central and a
few South America qso's on 15...did some good on 40..and a few on 80 meters...my score was low
compared to past years..but, still all in all enjoyed it...thanks to all for the q's...

Here is the result of a single Inverted-V dipole at 60 meters high in the south Patagonia (10.000+
Km to USA/Canada). 
Alone, in a small tent, with a small generator, far away from the civilization, with a few wires,
500 meters of rope, a small mobile amplifier, but with a lot of passion for what I do. 
The Patagonian frozen nights and strong winds were my only partners this weekend (since Thursday). 
Thanks to the company who gave me the permission to climb this tower (they never understand what
kind of crazy thing I’m doing here but they said: Yeah! Use it!)
Thanks to those who help me with data, tips, advices and more. 
I love Contesting and Dx-Peditions equally: For the first time I have decided to mix them in a solo.

First attempt. More to come...

It was really fun. 
We are proud to have for the first time in our team Desi LZ1DRI. She is vy young smart contester and
excellent singer too, so fun was guaranteed.
Condition on the first night was total disaster. 40m almost nonexistent.
The second night was much better with nice second opening on 20m .

Unbelievably bad conditions! MUF dropped way below 7MHz and we were
unable to make any QSOs on the band until a handful just after dawn.
We thought that surely, we would be able to make at least a few QSOs
on 15m but the band remained shut all weekend. We are much too far
north in Europe when conditions are like this. In addition, high
winds across the UK took their toll. The crankup towers stayed up
but the 40m 3el yagi was wrecked.

Operating 100 watts and a wire dipole antenna during what I would consider less than optimal band
conditions can be challenging.  I operated Friday evening and Saturday morning/early afternoon from
the East coast.  I'm not what I would call a big-time contester, and was hoping to catch a couple of
ATNO's for DXCC (and HI for WAS- the last state I need!), but it would not come to be for me this
contest.  All in all, I still had fun, and it's always great to see what my modest station setup can
do under conditions that weren't the best.

Miserable conditions. perhaps the worst ever, in my memory.
In addition I have no 160M antenna and lost my
80M dipole in the big WIND a week ago.  Despite
all that I was constantly surprised that the DX managed
to hear my 100 watts if I called long enough except for JA,
Hopefully conditions will be better next year.
Nice to work a lot of old friends.

MFJ-4245MV Switchng Power Supply,and a ZS6BKW (Modified G5RV) up 50
feet,running N-S at 6,053 feet from DN-71od in Laramie County,Wyoming.
95% Hunt and Pounce,with no stations answering my brief period of
attempted running.Many DX stations not giving thieir call sign during
exchange,(as clearly stipulated in the contest rules).Your Amateur Radio
Call Sign IS NOT "QRZ"! Many DX calls were spotted incorrectly with
wrong call or frequency not centered.These may well have been the worst
contestsolar conditions that I have experianced in 30 years.The grossly
over driven audio, excess processing, and 6 KC wide signals from many of
our "neighbors to the south" did ot help this situation one bit.Just a
few JA's worked and Europe might as well have been Mars as far as any
potential to hear and log with 100 watts and a wire. My new Icom IC-7300,
(a wonderful retirement gift from my Ham parents) is a joy to use while
contesting in poor band conditions,thanks to excellent filtering,DSP noise
reduction,and most of all the "water fall" which indicates active stations
at a glance. Another "100 watts and a Wire" effort is in the books.It was
fun to provide the rare mult of Wyoming to 99 of you around the world. My
100 watt, one wire antenna signal traveled a total distance of 399,642
miles,(excluding US),and my average "miles per DX contact was 4,078
miles. Thanks to all who heard and worked me. A special thanks to those
that hung in there for exchange "fills", when conditions were at their
worst. 73,from NOVEMBER SEVEN MANY ZEBRAS WALKING

1) On 80m some US stations were calling CQ above 3800 and listening around 3620 kHz or so. I have
(and many other guys I know) my 80 m antennas tuned either to CW part of 80m band or to Phone part
of the band. Or it is switchable. In the middle of the band, where is nothing for contestant, I have
SWR around 1:10 or even worse on all my antennas... Therefore those who were listening there I can
not try to call at all.
2) Miracle antennas of LZ5R. Look here:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/joqQ4WWvoFXBxuU67 There are many EU big guns with big PAs, 4el yagis,
phased foursquares, ... And on 3785 is sitting LZ5R, 25dB stronger than the rest of EU. Isn´t it
miracle? And moreover, the signal was in terrible quality about 10 kHz wide...

There was just the two of us staffing this M/S effort, myself V31VP (WB0TEV), and Scott V31CQ
(K5PS), but we managed to keep BIC for all but about 4 hours, generally in the wee hours of the
morning. 

When we flew down from Texas on Tuesday I brought along a suitcase full of wire, pulleys, a plastic
kitchen cutting board with an SO-239 mounted to it and plans for making an inverted-L with a couple
elevated radials for 160m. Heretofore the only antenna down here at the Maya Hill shack for 160 was
a low windom. Last year I only managed 1 QSO on 160m (moves with K3LR as I recall) and had high
hopes that we could up our game on top band. Spent much of Thursday getting it strung up and tuned
with help from Scott and the station owner Andre (V31DL). 

Would it work? The answer came the first night when we managed to bank a number of Qs (and most
importantly mults) on Top Band the first time we went to 160. The 202 QSOs and 46 precious mults
were a nice boost to the score. 

Rigs: IC-7800, Icom PW-1 amp 
Antennas: 160m Inverted L 55 ft up, 85 feet horizontal, two elevated radials 6-8 feet up strung thru
the trees. 80m inverted Vee at 60 feet, long windom at ~30 feet for 40m (40m inverted Vee from tower
needs maintenance), Cushcraft X7 for 20/15/10 at 65 feet. 
SW: N1MM+ on an HP Windows 7 laptop with extra monitor. 

Bands: 160m was in good shape. Noise wasn't that bad. I'm sure we could have worked more if we'd had
a beverage or some dedicated receive antenna. That's probably next on the continuous improvement
plan. 
80m played quite well, noise was low and propagation opened early and lasted long. 40m varied from
good to "odd" and iffy. We deliberately stayed above 7200 to keep out of the Region 1 QRM. 
20m was the money band during the daylight hours for sure with endless callers especially after prop
from the USA to EU faded and folks started turning their beams south. 
15m was a pleasant surprise. With the dearth of sunspots and the dreary prop forecast, expectations
were tempered at best. However, after trying to move a friend from 20 to 15 around 1830Z Saturday a
big run of callers ensued that lasted the next couple of hours. More followed in the 1800-2100Z
period Sunday. 10m: What 10 meters? 
US MULT Report: Worked all 49 on 20 and 40 
80m:only missed WY 
160m: missed mostly west central US, CO, KS, ND, SD, ID, MT & DC 
15m: missed DC and a string of states that were too close AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, AR, LA, MS, NM 
10m: Nada, zilch. 
VE MULTS: Nothing from LB,NT,NU or YT. Got ON and SK all bands 160-15; NF and PE from 160-20. QC MB
AB 80-15. BC 40-15. NS on 20 only. 

Scott and I had a blast. Thanks for all the QSOs. I plan on being back later this month for CQ WPX
SSB. As always thanks to Andre (V31DL/DL1AS) and his XYL Monika for the use of their fine station
and great hospitality at the Maya Hill Lodge.

Contesting is always fun regardless of your level of expertise and equipment.
Due to solar activity Europe was nonexistent on Saturday, and Japan was scarce, at least from my
location.  I found that calling cq garnered more answers from well-meaning US and Canadian stations
who were worth zero points, than actual point gaining dx stations It was easier to just work them
and send them away happy than explain the situation.

Another contest is history; bring on the next one...................Len.

Due to an absurd amount of work during the previous workdays, I ended too tired, so skipped the
Friday (XE)  and started  past 1440z.(8:40 CST)
20M was the stellar band and 15M almost did not open.
80M and 40M were under a horrid noise.
10M just heard a few SA station
Thanks for the Q's

The worst conditionsI have ever seen in a contest all qso where in running
mode and hear some signals like a wishper from underground and need
extrasensorial perception to complete a qso. 73 until next contest

Had just a short time to operate this time due to having visitors
staying over. Used an inverted L on 80m, a pair of phased MOXON's
on 40m, a 4 el yagi on 20m, 3 el yagi on 15m and 5 el yagi on 10m.
No sunspots! No comms at all on 15m and 10m, quite a good run on 20m
and 40m was not at its best but managed a few 80m SSB contacts
which was quite a thrill! Rig was an ICOM 736 barefoot with 100 watts.
Hope to make to next year's contest and hope to have a bit more time
for this. Thanks to all who make it possible!
