ARRL DX CW



In Category  Low power    mostly Search and P
propagation high bands very good on Sunday
How much longer can we enjoy this super 28MHz propagation ?
Even here in north-west were 28MHz signals are normally weaker at Sunday
BC WA MT OR came in well propagation was even better then in 2014 December ARRL10
Only missing State:   North Dakota , South Dakota, Nebraska
last year N and S Dakota worked within 1 minute ..

my goal:   6 banders    as many as possible
160m was the difficult band  17 QSO possible


Trying the ARRL CW this early  morning at 160
I could not use N1MM plus  the USA call all greyed out
and  logging had to be forced as invalid contact
must be simple  a setting  or country list still at PACC  but I could not fix this yet
But still N1MM score is 0 with 940 invalid contacts after loading wl_cty

ack to N1MM clasic

already sunrise I was late.
Few 160 W/V signals heard  W3LPL did not hear me Saturday morning bad sign for top band.
4 QSO only   (low power)  in the end 17Q in the log including W3LPL
WE3C the 1rst 6 bander  K3LR missed at 160




80m  better some more W/V

40 good
Westcoast States BC WA CA UT MT   even Yucatan VY1JA  very rare
