2020-07-12 I participated in the IARU HF contest this weekend
Again this year one of the important radiocontests for me: the IARU HF contest was this weekend. I made both SSB and CW contacts on several bands. I made 22 contacts in morse. I concentrated on SSB during the day, aiming to get some nice contacts in the log. There were good 10 and 15 meter openings which is always nice in a contest. I haven't done a lot of contesting on those bands so those enabled me to get more multipliers and a higher score. In the end I made 159 contacts, with a claimed score of 343 qso points * 74 multipliers = 25382. Update 2021-04-10: I did a check of results in several contests. My results for the IARU HF contest 2020: 153 valid contacts, 73 multipliers, score 23798. Ranking #63 for the Netherlands. This gives me a ranking of #9 in the 'Single operator unlimited, mixed mode, low power' category. Which isn't a very busy category.
