2015-01-11 Playing in a radio contest
Yesterday I switched on the radio for a bit and when I responded to a PSK63 CQ I received a four-digit serial number. I assumed some contest was going on and responded with serial 1001 because some contests require 4 digit serials starting at 1001. After that I found out I was right, the UBA PSK63 Prefix Contest was going on. But we had other plans, so that was just one QSO.

Today I had some more time before 12:00 UTC to play with the radio, changed the contest macros a bit for this contest and tried making more contacts. In total I made 10 contacts so it's just a checklog for the others. But I entered it 'for real' in the 10 meter single operator category.

Contesting is more fun than I expected when I first heard about it. And contesting in digimodes has its interesting things. I made all contacts in the 10 meter band, this is becoming my favourite HF band at the moment.

Update 2015-02-04:
And I'm a "winner" too: in the results for the 2015 UBA PSK63 prefix contest in the category Single Operator 10 meter I am 9th worldwide, 8th for Europe and 1st for the Netherlands.
With no other participants in this category from the Netherlands that isn't too hard...
