2016-05-02 I participated in the Russian worldwide multimode contest 20161 year ago
This weekend I had a few hours to play radio and I participated in the Russian worldwide multimode contest 2016. I also participated in the Russian worldwide multimode contest in 2015 so there is a chance now to compare the results.

Saturday afternoon and evening I was active on 40 meter. Mostly in PSK63, only a few contacts in RTTY. PSK63 decodes better at the same signal to noise level so it's easier in search and pounce mode. Again having more access to the 40 meter band is good in this case, I made a lot of contacts in the 7.040 MHz part.

Sunday morning I was active on 20 meter until I had a nice number of contacts in the log and it was time to go out and enjoy the weather.

I had a few nice runs where I called CQ and got several answers after another. I have some ideas about analyzing the cabrillo logs for qso rates.
Band  QSOs Dupes Points Mults
160      0     0      0     0
80       0     0      0     0
40      63     1    380    37
20      16     0     50    15
15       0     0      0     0
10       0     0      0     0
======================================
Total   79     1    430    52
Claimed score is 22360 points
One QSO was noted as incorrect because I was returned a Russian 'oblast code' for a Ukranian callsign. I guess some politics are involved there, I'm not very good (yet) at recognizing which callsigns are from which country.
