2016-06-19 I participated in the Ukranian classic RTTY contest1 year ago
Without a lot of preparation I participated in the 2016 Ukranian classic RTTY contest contest just to see how I would do and maybe get one or two new interesting entities in the log. The radio interference was active all weekend on 40 meter so I participated only on the 20 meter band. In the end I participated for about just over 3 hours and made 64 contacts. Interesting new entities were Venezuela (new country) confirmed, Pennsylvania confirmed and North Carolina confirmed (new US states). Confirmations come in quick via eQSL and LoTW! I updated the Veron afdelingscompetitie with the results. And all the other usual places where I upload the logs of my radio contacts. Already the first confirmations via eQSL are coming in and visible in my eQSL received at PD4KH / PE4KH collection. Update 2017-06-19: Only after participating in the Ukranian DX Classic RTTY contest 2017 I notice that I never updated this post with the scores from 2016. Claimed 64 qso's, 57 confirmed, 256 points, multiplier 40, total score 10240 points, ranked #32 in the SINGLE-OP 20M category.
