2017-06-18 I participated in the Ukranian DX Classic RTTY Contest 2017
I participated in the Ukranian DX Classic RTTY Contest 2017 this weekend. I prepared the antenna and the contestmacros Friday evening, but I knew most of Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning would be unavailable.

Local noise was bad, it seems interference from solar panels is on the rise and it was a quite sunny day.

On the other hand, there was a 10 meter band opening Sunday afternoon, giving me some new multipliers with 8 contacts on that band. But no serious DX in the whole contest, I just saw Eastern Europe and Asiatic Russia active, unlike when I participated in the Ukranian DX Classic RTTY contest 2016.

The end result is that I made 70 contacts in somewhat less than 6 hours of operating time. So I participated in the SINGLE-OP ALL 6-HOUR RTTY category.

Update 2017-09-01: Results were published at the beginning of august: 65 contacts confirmed, 340 points, 42 multiplier, total score 14280 points ranking me #26 in Results Ukranian DX Classic RTTY Contest 2017 category single-op all 6 hours rtty.
