I participated in the Russian worldwide multimode contest / 2015-11-01 - Koos van den Hout

2015-11-01 1 year ago
I had some time (not a lot) this weekend to participate in the Russian WW MultiMode Contest 2015.

I updated my fldigi macros to work better for a contest as I planned when I participated in the CQWW RTTY contest and that improved my speed in making contacts a bit. I think I now have a reasonable setup for the 'search and pounce' side of things (looking for calling stations and answering them). I want to do some more improvements on those macros and then I will do a separate posting about my contest macros and how I use them.

I participated in a few timeslots between other things:

Saturday afternoon 20 meters was wide open and I made a number of contacts (while still improving those contest macros). Things improved when I started using the outdoor endfed antenna.

Saturday evening 20 meters was dead and I was left with the (small) part of the 40 meters band I can use. I managed some contacts on 40 meters RTTY.

Sunday morning 20 meters was wide open again and I made a number of contacts.

Claimed score is 6516 points
I had to fix some errors in my log and looking back I may have scored some duplicate contacts, so I'm not sure how high the score in the end will be.
