Great fun until we lost power at 1945 UTC due to high winds.  Thought about going to battery power,
but had other priorities to tend to.  Nice to hear lots of activity on 10M.  Had fun and picked up a
few new Dx entities.  Thanks to all the ops on the other end of the QSO.  73.

Decided to run with 5 watts, since my amp went out in the ARRL CW
DX Contest.  I tried running, but no stations could hear me
running/calling CQ, so I had to S&P.  I did try a few times to
run throughout the contest, again to no avail.
seemed to be better for low power QSO's using two yagis.  On 40m
did well the first night with my yagi, but not so good the
second.  Right at my sunset the skip was short, but soon after
got long making it difficult to work close stations in the
Caribbean the second night.  The first (Friday) night I worked
many at EU sunrise with some better ease.  The noise on Saturday
night at my QTH was terrible and also just before end of contest
on Sunday.  I had little luck on 80m with 5 watts working only
two (2) stations. Most could not hear me on 80m even though I
could hear the big guns in Europe, in Japan, VK/ZL on 80m well on
my receive antenna, but they could not hear my measily 5 watts.
They were so loud one would think they could make a QSO, but
"notta" with QRP.
attempts in order to make a contact on 10-80m. The competition
combined with noise and my weak signal made a QSO very difficult.
DX signals had to be S9 or stronger at signal peaks; otherwise,
I did not stand a chance at a QSO.  Also, I could not work anyone
until the pile was worked down by the DX and they had no
interference from adjacent frequencies or noise on their end
which was detectable due to never being able to make the QSO.  I
was always the last to work any station in the pileup if one
existed. It was obvious some DX had lots of noise because I had
to give up calling and move on.
very bad as well because I would give my callsign and not many
could even detect my signal on 40m as well as 80m especially just
before and after my sunrise when the noise got really terrible. I
thought I would pick up some Caribbean, but not a chance.

even waiting for my turn to try to make a QSO when my partial
call was announced.  QRP was tough, but enjoyed the challenge.
After a little while, I learned how to inject my call.  At least
many DX stations would come back to my partial callsign and give
me a chance.  Many did not care and a wishful QSO was toast.
was thankful for the good propagation on 10m and 15m especilly to
EU/JA/VK/ZL and strong DX signals as my gauge to make a call (S9
or greater)  Anything less was a no-go.  Sometimes I was
surprised to work a few "semi-rare" DX stations.  It was obvious
that my tuning up and down the band paid off, since I ran across
some long distant stations who first started ing CQ and was able
to snag them.  One was 7Q6M late Saturday afternoon on 15m when
the JA's typically come banging in.  There were several other
stations with this same scenario that gave me a chance.  Later
tuning the band(s),  I could hear big pileups knowing I was glad
I got them before someone probably spotted them on a cluster
making a huge pileup.
at the end on this contest from calling so much and I was
exhausted by the end. Nice to hear stations participating
worlwide.  Great to hear several of my fellow TCG'ers who always
beat me out even though they probably could not hear me. As
always, thanks to all for the QSOs.

Family commitments kept me busy Saturday.  Logged some contacts Friday evening but spent most of
Sunday afternoon working stations.  All contact (212) were made using my horizontal wire antenna
(80m OCF dipole).  Made contacts on 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters and added a few new countries to my
list.  I'm still very slow at logging contacts, but I am learning how to use SkookumLogger (Mac OS )
- it's much better for contests than MacLogger and it produces Cab. Files directly!

Ran portable in a park in town using an IC-7300 and a Buddipole off of a marine battery.  Spent a

After I have paused my ham radio activity for more than 35 years, I reactivated the hobby again. I
used an Elecraft KX2 transceiver (which I just got 2 days before) with only 10 watts and a 8m random
wire antenna on a fishing pole. So the conditions were very poor but I was surprised how far I can
go with this setup :-)

K3CCR   Contact Moderator
K3CCR is the club station at the Collington continuing-care
retirement community at FM 18OW in MD, just east of DC. I, N3UM,
operated SOHP U in the 2022 ARRL DX SSB; W5MPB had non-ham-radio
duties. With SFI ~120 my 20 thru 10-M results were super, but
with Kp=4 for 9 hrs and 5 for 12 hrs, 80 & 160 M results were
poor, & 40-M results ~OK. I tried but got no run Qs on any band
in this test; unusual for me. At start 0023-0250Z I clicked
spots at ~60/hr for 120 total Qs on 20 & 40 M. But, each bandmap
would clear in ~30-60 min, so I had to swap bands till it filled
again. This pattern held thru the test. At 0253Z I found just 12
80-M sigs in 10 min; 9 were HP EUs, all very weak. In 7 more
min. I found 5 160-M sigs by 0314Z QRT; pitiful. On again at
1350Z I got 19 EU Qs in 14 min. on 20 M, then 103 Qs in 2.2 hrs
on 15 M! Wow; mostly EU, but also FR and ZS on 15 M. After lunch
1914-2142Z I got 96 Qs; 37 on 20 M, 33 on 10-M, & 26 on 15 M,
most in  SA. After supper 0030 to 0245Z QRT, rates were slow but
bandmaps quick to clear. I got just 62 Qs; 34 on 40 M, 16 on 20
M, and my last 12 on 80 M. Back on 20 M 1411-1421Z, got 13 EU Qs
+ HS and ZL in 10 min, 90/hr, bandmap clear! Far more spots on
15 M; 92 Qs 1430-1630Z, 47/hr, mostly EUs. After lunch 1849 to
2138Z QRT, the high bands were long and busy. I got 27 mults and
107 Qs; 45 on 20 M with JA and ZS, 16 on 15 M with 6W, and 46 on
10 M with KH6 & V5. Worked 7Q6M on 3 bands. Sunspots are back.

My goal was to beat my previous score, that goal was accomplished, even with the time off for yard
work on Saturday. Thanks to all of the DX operators! There was one issue that cropped up on Saturday
evening that took me off of the low bands until I found and bypassed the faulty component.
Equipment: IC-7610, G5RV at 35' and a three element tri-band beam at 30 feet. N3FKP's ACLog and

K5LBJ is the LASA High School Amateur Radio Club in Austin, Texas.  Our high school station has been
operating since 2004.  In that time, we had matched 97 DX entities via Logbook of the World.  We
finally decided to operate in the DX Phone contest to try to get over the century mark.  Bands were
open, including 10 meters, and we operated about 5 hours.  During that time, we worked 7 possible
"new" DX entities.  As of Monday, we had already matched with 2 of our new DX entities.  Hoping to
get 1 more to qualify for DXCC!  Thanks to all of the amazing operators that spoke with our
students.  73 & Good DX.

lower bands but 15M was nice to see everything spread out working
stations all the way up to 21.450.   SSB is my least favorite

This one was a bit of a challenge. I took a bad fall on ice recently and was operating with two
dislocated fingers on my left hand, a cast over a broken right wrist

As I was “playing hurt” I decided I would simply get on and try to work some ATNOs on a limited

Set down in the shack at about 18 UT Saturday afternoon and was very pleasantly surprised to hear 15
and 10 meters alive with lots of DX activity

Got N1MM log set up, or so I thought, and donned my boom set. Uh, oh no PC control or radio! Reset
both ends of the PC/radio USB cable. No joy.

Opened the N1MM config menu. Hmmm, no radio port shown. Re-entered the radio port config and,
Viola...radio control!

It’s off to the races! 10 meters is hopping with signals from Caribbean and South America. First

Thirty minutes and about 10 Qs later I notice that the times are wrong on logged QSOs! The clock is
about 40 minutes slow and DATE says 12 February!!

Reset clock and back to the contest.

Operating time about 6 hours. 110 S&P QSOs. Best DX VP8LP and 5UA99WS. Spent last 25 minutes of test
calling a CN8 who was working a huge pileup.

Bottom line: maybe 5-6 ATNOs. Probably worked 30+ PYs. Great hearing the bands open again. Hope to
have two hands, both arms functioning soon

Seemed like everyone was playing nicer than usual. I Never heard the first on-air altercation or
disagreement.  I only worked 80, 40, and 20 thanks to an unknown problem with the G5RV/tuner combo. 
And I lost a couple of hours operating time during the middle of the contest from having to manually
re-enter contacts, thanks to my fat fingers.  I made a single wrong mouse-click during N1MM setup
and didn't notice it for a couple of hours.  But I had fun the rest of the time.  On Saturday 80m
was fine, but on Sunday that band seemed pretty much closed.

Managed a few hours on a busy weekend. Operating was all S&P. Saturday
morning was my best rate with 56 Q's in the first hour.  I did call CQ a couple
of times on Sunday with no luck. I got to 15m fairly early and it produced my
most multipliers. My longest distances were Brisbane and Reunion I. at 15000 km.
Africa was quite active, with 20 Q's and on every band but 160. Famous last

202 contacts and 104 Mults with 51 different DX entities during 19 hours of operating time. Icom
IC-7300,Heil Pro Micro Headset on VOX,Vectronics VC300DLP Manual Tuner (for 15 and 80 Meters only)
and a single ZS6BKW modified wire antenna up 45 feet,running N-S at an elevation of 6,053 feet. A
99% limited operatng time,"Hunt and Pounce" effort.I worked a few stations on 5 different bands,and
I have no antenna for 160 Meters. I QSY'd  a few times at the request of DX, in order to give that
station the Wyoming Multiplier on a new band.This contest felt like the Worked All Brazil Contest at
times! 54 of the 202 stations I worked were also running 100 watts,and I worked one 5 watt QRP
station. Some raunchy audio from the "usual suspects" but by in large the pileups were well behaved.
Thanks to the cluster, many stations did not give thier call sign often enough.Last year I had 67
Q's, 40 Mults and 8,040 points. Having 10 and 15 Meters open for 2022, really helped.Thanks for the
fills and for the contacts!  November Seven Many Zebras Walking

Whew, another phone contest finally over. We had some good and some
bad condx, with the SFI at 120 we had hope, with the A index at 27 we
had disappointment. It was frustrating for us having to wait inline
for the pileups to subside so we could get our turn to make a QSO. We
need to make improvements with inter-station filtering for better
results. It was great hearing all our commrades from FRC on and
getting through the pileups. Come on Cycle 25.  Equipment: Rigs: Icoms

My remote connection worked without any big problems.  I've had a lot of problems with my remote
connection over the pass month.  My connection was breaking every 30 minutes.  Lucky for me I never
lost connection in this contest.  Most of my operating these days, is CW. In recent CW contests I
was able to find enough bandwidth to Run.  Basically I could not do that is the SSB contest. 
Propagation was good on 15 and 10 meters but not so good on 40 meters.  80 and 160 meters were
My wife and I winter in a Studio apartment on Hollywood Beach, Florida.  So staying up all night
talking was not practical.  And when the higher bands faded I was disappointed by 160 thru 40
meters.  So there was no need to stay up all night.  I didn't start talking until after we had

surprises with 7Q6M and V55Y coming in.

Contest was fun for the first half then high winds in central Indiana took down my 120ft tower at
the end of the first night. It has been up for 20+ years. It smashed 3 tribanders, but missed house
and my office building by a few feet, so I guess it could have been worse. 73 Mike

This entry was yet another dual-OP from W7AYT's QTH in Concord.
Most of my time was spent operating remote from NX6T or sleeping.
In between I found time to put WQ6X on the air from Concord.
The recently acquired FT-2000 performed flawlessly.  Because there
is a 3-elemnt Long John yagi at the site, I spent more time on 10-meters
than on any other band; that is until the solar storm took things over.

Assembled a great team to run this one.  Happy to have Justin,
K9MU back and Kelly, N0VD with us for the first time.  Had to
make some operating adjustments at the beginning of contest due
to losing an OP, but the guys jumped in and covered the shifts.
Always great operating with Dennis, K4NV and Mike, NN9DD.  All
were great team players!
good, but not quite as good Sunday.  Operaters in AZ, WI and GA
remotely using the BeLoud remote in Maine.  Icoms and PGXL amps
performed flawlessly.
fills and all QSOs.....Fred, WW4LL

I think an example of the Cabrillo file required would help.
