my new SteppIR DB36 with 80 meter dipole. Worked great. Thanks for all the contacts!

Cinditions do not compare with the recent ARRL International CW
contest.  In this SSB contest I was not able to make QSOs with
100w category; therefore, I had to power up my amplifier and
compete in the high-power category.
(160m) was nothing like the CW contest.  Heard only a few
stations.  Saturday and Sunday mornings, there was not many (if
any) still on the band calling CQ just prior to sunrise here in
TENN.  Ten (10m) meters was terrible and did not hear any signals
either day.  I lost some good multipliers due to bd 10m
conditions.  On  bright note, was glad to work many Europeans on
15m on both Saturday and Sunday.
faulting out.  Believe it was a patch cable recently crimped.  I
beleive I like soldered patch cables better ensuring a real
connection.  Switched patch cables a few times.
many QSOs and looking forward to next year.

My station is not setup yet at my new QTH in Tennessee.  I wound up operating
with a 15 meter wire delta loop in a tree.  The only operational rig at hand was
an old FT726R with an HF module that covers 15, 12 and 10 meters.  I decided to
operate single band on 15 meters with 10 watts output, and had a lot of fun
doing that even though it was often difficult to be heard.  I was pleased to
work a few Europeans on Saturday.  As expected most of the propagation was to
the Caribbean and South America.  The vast majority of stateside stations were
heard via weak backscatter.  I managed to make 71 QSOs in 32 countries, and I
was satisfied with that given the station I was able to cobble together.

The Gilwell Park Scout team got together for our next attempt at
this contest. After a frantic rotator replacement on the
tribander tower on Saturday morning and rapid deployment of a NW
beverage half way throught the contest, we felt that our small
team made as much as we could from the conditions. Scratchy QSOs
on 15m and even the big boys were not strong on top band left us
three contest bands to carry all the traffic. Lots of fun
nonetheless and Im sure we will be back next year

Another enjoyable trip by the intrepid 3 Brits for the ARRL Phone contest.
In the last 3 years we have moved further and further west, starting in PZ
then on to P4 and now here we are in HP, where to next year? A very big
thank you to our host Jay, HP3AK. We had some problems with the 40m
beam when we arrived, but managed to get it repaired and back on the tower
thanks to Jay's mechanical engineering and tower climbing skills. We were
less fortunate with the 160m antenna, which try though we did we couldn't
get it to radiate very well. We also suffered a number of long power failures,
thankfully the on site generator kept up going. No 10m opening again, maybe
next year?

Closed high bands and antenna for 80 and 160 poorly performing. About 14
hours of activity on 20 and 40 meters and 10 QSOs with well-equipped
stations. It was not easy to log 160 qso.
I noticed that many stations with 100 watts and others even with 25 watts
were able to pass me despite having used 500 watts.
Highest final score of the previous edition.

I entry on a single-op 80m lowpower. The condition was not

I QSOed 34stations in the last year.
But I QSO only 7stations 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
Please separete high power categoly and low power catagoly in
each single band.

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 HP in ARRL SSB 2020. Our goal; to beat our
best past ARRL SSB result, in 2017. We did that, and had fun;
condx and activity were good, and we had 2 radios on for ~half
of our 25 total hrs. At 00Z start W3GB got on 40m. and did well,
123 Qs by 0533Z QRT. N3UM got 122 Qs by QRT; 19 on 20m, 85 on
80m, and 18 on 160m. We could not run, but got decent rates and
139 mults clicking spots and tuning. Sat. 14-18Z W3GB got 92 Qs
on 20m. while N3UM got 66 Qs on 15m. At 18Z we had 226 mults,
78% of our 290 final total after 37% of total hrs on. From
18-2213Z we zig-zagged between 15 and 20m with offset breaks to
eat; W3GB got 67 Qs and N3UM 36 Qs for 103 total, 76 of these on
20m. After dark we found the low bands slow and full of dupes;
W3GB got 32 Qs on 40m, N3UM got 40 Qs on 80m. and 11 on 160m,
but we got 34 more mults by 0407Z QRT. Sun. AM W3GB was away.
N3UM found great condx to EU on 20m; he got 38 Qs clicking spots
in 36 min, 1329-1405Z. He then ran 1411-1508Z  for 91 Qs in 57
min, 96/hr, and clicked for 21 more Qs by 1542Z. Then, a typical
slow Sun. PM. W3GB got on 20m. at 1645Z and got 78 Qs, 18 in our
only other run. N3UM got a last 20 Qs on 15m. after 19Z. At 22Z,
there was no one left to work; bandmaps clear, CQs not answered,
so we went QRT. We claimed 843 Qs and a 733.4K score vs our best
past result of 765 Qs and a 612.8K score in 2017. We were amazed
to get 45 countries on 15m including KH6, ZL, and 6 EUs with 100 W
to a backup C3 antenna on a low tower, and no sunspots!

Low-profile, low-power station using portable HF vertical.  Quite a challenge, but bands were
remarkably quiet so my results surprised me in spite of the poor propagation.  Worked Hawaii 2x and

This was my initiation into SSB contesting!  I have been operating CW since getting my Novice
license! Most of my time was spent setting up my IC7300 for optimum SSB operation.  CW certainly is
clearer and simpler to operate if one doesn't have an amp and a beam!  I'm really a QRP guy! HI  I
did operate 100w during the contest. I have to admit, it was a nice change of pace, but I can talk
on a cell phone every day.  Morse code is something different and unique!

Not a fullbore effort but not bad for a SSB contest at the bottom
of the Sunspot Cycle. I was able to work DX on 160, 80, 40, 20,
and 15 Meters during normal expected openings. Managed to work
almost every European heard calling CQ on 20 and 40! 15 was
limited to mainly NA / SA, without a single peep from AS. 10 was
spotted but nothing ever heard. Had this been a CW event the
station would have played vastly better as my antennas are too
low to the ground to effectively run SSB EU DX from this far
West. Still it was a nice challenge! Station: Flex3000, AL80B @

Great contest, I wish more DX would spend some time in the general portions of the band's, I think
they would be surprised by the amount of states they could fill with ease if they did not just sit
on one freq way down in the extra portion.

Can we stop with the constant recorded messages at the bottom of the general ssb portion of bands
referencing an extra freq. It not only limits our generals even more on freq span but is also just

I operated Friday night, a little Saturday during the day, and Saturday night of the contest; made
contacts on 15, 20, and 40. 85 contacts, 44 unique countries, and one ATNO: 4U1UN. Using
“QuickLog” on my iPad to log. Very busy, lots of signals, hard to break through.  Definitely
need to get my 80m antenna up again.  See y’all next time!  73 de Jeff, KF5KWO, Texas.

I'm very pleased with my results using an A4 Tri-Bander and wire antennas for 40/80/160. I never
went looking for Mults and just ran, ran, ran whenever I could. Sunday morning was the pits with
only 20 meters open and covered wall to wall with EU signals. The Tribander is great BUT I need to
put up a 4 or 5 element monobander on 20M to help null out those pesky EU signals and hold a
frequency. I went almost two hours Sunday morning with zero Qs. The station performed flawlessly
other than N1MM logger or my desktop stalling twice to catch up to something. First time I had to
wait about 30 seconds and the second time about 2 minutes for logging to resume. 
The Elecraft K3S is the best SSB radio ever! Thanks to all of you rare states and provinces for
taking the time to call me and help my score.

Challenging contest. Low power and a geographical location seemingly a little bit on the side of
mainstream US - Europe, together with crowded bands. Conditions on the bands rather poor. 80 m best
in early morning and late afternoon - evening, 40 m very much the same. Both the bands "dead" during
daytime. 20 m fair from about 10.00 UTC to 18.00 UTC, "dead" the rest of the time. 15 m absolutely
dead. 160 m and 10 m not tried.
Will try again next year, may be conditions will improve as the new solar cycle hopefully speeds up
a little bit.

Just Friday´s night to test a new home made antenna.
Operating from the car, FT Dx-101D running 100w.
Vertical antenna, 1/4 Lambda "fishing rod".
Very good performance, able to work from New York to California, and from Texas or Florida to
Washington, Oregon or Dakota, plus some Canadians provinces.
Very good Rx, but noticed more Tx power is needed to be able to be noted.
Great fun.

Fun weekend but conditions were not good. We struggled to
make 147 QSOs on 15 on day one, and added just one more QSO on
day two. Topband was also a disappointment, we monitored it while
running 40m but never found an opening so had to work hard
for 33 QSOs. Conditions on 160 improved in the last 15 minutes
of the contest, we QSYed but no-one spotted us, so no QSOs!
Our 40m total looks rather light as well, but it was very hard to get
any rate going especially on the second day.

using a single wire antenna, with 100 watts power output. I more than doubled my 2019 effort. ZF5T's
short and staccato canned audio made him sound like a "Munchkin on Meth",making copy very difficult!
I did not engage TM29X, who was operating on 14.349 MHz. Several stations worked on 3 or 4 bands,and

I started out on 40 meters at 0320z Friday evening and the first two contacts were Namibia and
Turkey.  Expectations immediately soared!  And it was good to get some 15 meter QSOs into the log
for a change.  

And I was pleased with the 80 meter delta loop performance which I put up last summer.  I cut the
wire for the SSB portion of the band and then put a 200 Amp 12 volt relay at the feedpoint which
allows me to switch in a coil to tune the antenna to the bottom of the band.  By carefully tuning
the length of the wire as well as the turns on the coil I can cover either 3500-3700 KHz or
3700-3900 KHz at 2:1 SWR or less with a flip of the switch.  There is a quarter-wave length section
of 75 ohm coax at the feed point which is then connected to 50 ohm coax for the remaining run to the
shack. This was the first SSB DX contest for the antenna.  In the short time I was on the air
Saturday evening I was able to work Austria, Lithuania, Croatia, Bosnia, Spain in short order, in
addition to the usual SA/Carib/KH6/KL7.  So color me pleased!

And, yes, Murphy paid a visit. About the time Dan KE0OR was leaving early Saturday afternoon the PTT
(and VOX) on my Flex 6500 quit working.  On CW works it fine, but not on SSB.  The final few
contacts on Saturday were done from Taty's rig, a Yaesu FT-1000.  I haven't done any more checking
into the cause of that yet....Hopefully it won't require sending the rig out to fix.

It was a casual effort but great fun for both Dan and me.

I had not operated the ARRL DX Phone contest from Aruba since dismantling my P40A station in 2011.
Many months ago my wife and I had planned an Aruba vacation around this time frame and just days
before leaving home I learned that the P49Y/P40L station was available. The owners Andy, AE6Y and
John, W6LD had just completed a major antenna overhaul in February so the station was in pristine
condition and they were so kind to let me use it. I had little available time for operating while on
the island except during the contest. We were quite busy vacationing and enjoying Aruba. We went
shopping, walked and swam the lovely beaches, ate at great seafood restaurants and even went scuba
diving where we saw a sea turtle swim out of a shipwreck. I added a few new vacation photos
including the turtle to http://www.p40a.com. On Friday afternoon we essentially moved into the
P49Y/P40L home for the weekend. The station is well equipped, however I brought along my Elecraft
K3S and peripherals because it was familiar. Everything at P49Y/P40L is clearly labeled and
organized and earlier in the week I talked with W6LD for an hour on WhatsApp, so I became very
familiar with the setup. I started on 20m and had a great first hour total of 253 QSOs.  As this
band closed for the night and rates diminished I switched to 40 and the 200+ rates resumed. I forgot
how much fun this contest was from a big station! Since I was the only active participant from
Aruba, I anticipated having the same big pileups when switching to 80m and 160m later in the
evening, however that did not occur at all. Low power is just not loud on the low bands and my first
QSY attempts produced no contacts. There were times later in the evening when propagation was either
a little better or I was spotting a lot and I did manage do pretty well on 80m. 160m was always a
struggle and I missed a lot of sections. The station has an incredible beverage system so I could
easily hear most of the 80m and 160m callers. 15m was open during most of the daylight hours and it
was a great place to be to avoid all of the 20m QRM however, propagation was spotty. In some areas I
was very strong and in others, especially to the west, I was barely readable. I missed some normally
easy multipliers but I made a lot of QSOs especially to the southeastern part of the U.S. While on
15m I listened to the station’s K3 set on 10m hoping for an opening but I only heard South America
stations running the US. I did not make a single 10m QSO all weekend, I do not recall that ever
happening to me before in this contest. By the halfway point I had made 3600 QSOs, three years ago
from the mountain station in St Croix where I operated as WP2AA, I made a total of 3900 low power
QSOs all weekend so I felt that things were going quite well. I did not sleep at all on the first
night nor was I not well rested at the beginning so I took a five hour dinner, nap and shower break
which felt great. I was refreshed and hoped that this would allow for higher Sunday daytime rates
plus enough energy to move back into our rental house so that we could pack for the Monday flight
home. Unfortunately conditions seemed a little worse on Sunday and rates were about half of
Saturday's. I typically work all dupes however at times they can became annoying when there are so
many. In one 1/2 hour segment, near the end, despite clearly and slowly saying my callsign, 26
operators duped me which forced me to change bands. The contest was very enjoyable and the station
worked flawlessly. I would like to thank AE6Y and W6LD for allowing us to invade their home and
station for the weekend. I would also like to thank my QSL Manager, WD9DZV for putting my logs on
LoTW, Clublog and EQSL plus replying to card requests. Plus a special thanks to everyone for the

Great contest with many contenders. Pretty good prop with quite some west coast stations in the log.
In the end even hawaii came through, nice to hear, good to see 20 meters up and running.  Missed the
dakota's ? Only 20 meters this year, and a few on 15 and 40 meters due to shortage in time, but did
enjoy !!!  CU all next year and thanks again for the nice qso's. Not really easy to find a clean
spot on the band, but we managed ;-)

I was not prepared for this contest and my station is very simple
(specially antenna, a single 7m wire from the window of the
apartment to a tree + AH-4). Radio was a IC7300, software N1MM
via wine on LinuxMint. On saturday night I tried to join but due
to problems on computer I gave up. After install N1MM and review
my setup, without expectations, I called CQ in the last hour of
the contest. A pile-up formed. I loved the experience after many
year away of SSB contest. During that 1 hour my mind was totally
away of stress, it was a wunderfull. Recently I updated my
license. -- So, these was the first set of QSO on 20m I ever
made!-- Thank you for everybody that reply to my CQ. 73 PT2SR

Amazing long path propagation around 2100z each day with slamming doors.. literally the path opened
from zero with a 40 second crescendo of S9+ noise burst, followed by wall to wall stations across
20m, and then in the span of 2 minutes the S9+20 signals went to zero..  I learned a lot from that
path behavior.

Best effort was working Maine and Ontario, a tough gig from here, but made it..

Great contest again. Good weather conditions
here, with no QRN noise. Unfortunately, just had
my usual 160m dipoles on all bands. Not the
greatest antennas for the high bands, it was still
good enough for a lot of great contacts and give
a VK mult for some. Of course the 40m band was
the best for me at this time of the Sun Spot cycle.
73's all, until the next contest, from Ron.

Note to DX stations:  Some stations have pre-recorded their call and/or power.  When I asked for a
fill, the DX station just pushed the play button.  The reason that I ask for a fill is because your
recording is impossible to understand completely.  And it is a bit irritating to have to listen you
your QRZ call multiple times to try to get your call first, and really never get your call right.  
Otherwise, I had a great time in this contest.  Got my first Africa and Australia/New Zealand
I was building on the skill to listen to that empty quiet space between the monster stations.  There
is often a good contact there.  And after I worked them, the pile up was started.  Guess that other
stations heard me working that rare one.  
I was on 40 meters for the whole time that I participated in the contest.  It seemed to be as open
as if it wasn't a sunspot minimum.  Let's have a DX contest every Weekend!

A very slow weekend on 10M, especially Sunday.  Propagation was long and weak, so no Caribbean and
Central American Mults from here (GA).  Missed a lot of Q's as they disappeared before we could
complete the entire exchange.  Worked some SA stations who had great Rx capability and others who
seemed deaf.  Best DX:
V55 and EA8.  Missed HK and other Caribbean Mults.  Just too close for
Propagation.   Things will get better, right?

surprised that I actually made three contacts.

Amazing to work so many European stations on 80 meter phone.
EU sunrise allowed me to work several who couldn't hear me before.
18 hours of operating, 13 hours with single digit rates,
but when I'd work a new mult, it was a special thrill.
Wish there were a single-band assisted category, but
was also fun discovering the stations myself.

I had a lot of fun. I did not plan to participated. I just wanted to
help the participants as a DX Station but in just 3 hours make 170
QSOs. It was an incredible experience. Had a lot of fun. looking
forward for the next contest.
I am not sure in my claimed score is correct because I am confused
with how the multipliers works so If I am incorrect please accept my

This was just a screw-around operation from W7AYT's QTH in Concord
in between remote operating shifts with NX6T in Fallbrook.
Ironically, the only QSOs were with JA & KH6 (with a Kl7 bonus).
Altho South America was heard from this location, they evidently
could not hear WQ6X calls back to them.
Nevertheless, it was fun.

Just checking out the K3 on phone in a check log submittal. In-house noice level made it impossible
to work 20m and above. 40m terrible as well but the biggest US stns could be heard some of the time.
Source now identified as related to a circuit through breaker no.2 on the main board. A good start
on bug elimination at our new qth.

Nice to get some QSOs on 15m but overall conditions were poor.
Didnt seem to be many USA ops on the contest this year....must have
stayed away due to COVID-19 - Hi Hi!
