ARRL DX CW

ARRL CW is the mother of all Contests..
Back in 1970 ties we where  PA0GN  ,handwritten paper logs no internet no PC.'s
After contest with koffie en koek, dub check at the home of  Geert PA0GIN  Corrie and dog Sheila.
Those days the cw  and phone took both 2 weekends 2 x 48 hour CW .

Must be the only active HF contester's of this group left with Enno PF5X
But  PI4GN is active in UHF SHF contests.

Last weekend during our PACC storm depression Ciara came along.
This weekend we had another storm visiting called Dennis.
Friday I attempted to set up a better 40m dipole but i could not get it tuned like it did last weekend.
Now i know why, the fold back wires came too close to each other and eliminated induction.
But Dennis ended antenna work.

Anyway i was okay for 160 80 20 15  and the 80 dipole on 40 that worked a bit
my result





15m open a bit 
20m was open long and good signals  CA MT BC WA AZ OR  SK NB MB VY0 AB
Wyoming WY was spotted but not heard the only missing State.

 40m w…

PACC 2020

PACC2 2020
I choose to run in the high power CW single section this time.
With moral support and company of Willem PD0OHW (photos) to experience the contest live..

But Tropical storm CIARA was expected to land about halfway the 24 hours in the early Sunday morning
So we had to decide to take the high 25m pole down at 05 hour before the high winds and rain would reach us.
That meaned  40m dipole 80 and 160m out...
And the Steppir at lowest position.

Saturday before contest start 15m was open     FT8 :   YB EU VK
I started  CW at 15m  but long CQ with no reply and no CW signals heard  i had to go down to 20m.
Not to speak of 10m  always start at the at the highest bandthat what the the hams  said before the age of FT8 and RBN  clusters internet. When one only could find out by listening the bands..

the week before there where some ES openings  but now CIARA depression seems blow away all
propagation...
Tuesday and  Monday propagation was recovered at 15  with many EU and PY at 10m...
That is how it …
