I participated in the Russian Worldwide PSK contest 2017 / 2017-02-20

2017-02-20 I participated in the Russian Worldwide PSK contest 20175 months ago
This weekend I had time to use the radio and after trying to get some more contacts on the 30 meter band Friday evening I decided to participate in the ongoing digimode contest in the weekend. This was the weekend of the Russian Worldwide PSK contest 2017 (https TLS certificate is broken at the moment).

I had fun doing it, had 124 contacts in the contest. I now have two new countries in the log: Kuwait and Suriname. And Kuwait already confirmed via Logbook of The World. I just uploaded the log (with the last contact rejected as it was too late):
Band  QSOs Dupes Points Mults
160      0     0      0     0
80       0     0      0     0
40      52     0    320    28
20      71     0    223    33
15       0     0      0     0
10       0     0      0     0
Total  123     0    543    61
Claimed score is 33123 points
Comparing it to my results in the Russian WW PSK contest 2015 I did a lot better. At that time I still had limited access to the 40 meter band which limited my options for PSK traffic.

Update 2017-03-26: Results are in at RDRC - Результаты RUS-WW-PSK 2017 : SOAB - WORLD, 118 contacts confirmed, 516 points, multiplier stays at 61, score 31476 points, confirmation rate 95.2%.

I ranked #148 for contestants outside Russia, #130 for European countries outside Russia and #7 for the Netherlands.
