2015-05-24 Playing in the EU-PSK-DX contest 5 years ago
I saw the EU-PSK-DX contest coming up in the PG7V contest calendar and decided to try. My results are nice for a beginning novice with background noise:

Claimed score is 4200 points. I selected the SINGLE-OP 20M HIGH category. When I look at the EU-PSK-DX contest 2014 results I didn't do too bad for 25 watt power, in a noisy (residential) area and with only about 6 hours of actual 'radio' time.

Update 2015-06-27: Results in the "SO20 HP EU" category:
                    Final score EU PSK DX 2015: "SO20 HP EU"

Ended as 16th out of 18 in the SO20 HP EU Single operator 20 meter band only high power European category. The long list of categories makes it easier to compare stations within the same category, but some categories had no participants at all. With all the logs gathered 37 out of my 41 contacts were confirmed.
