2020-11-30 I participated in the CQWW CW contest 2020 6 months ago
Past weekend was the CQWW CW contest and I participated for a while. Not many contacts because I had a lot of trouble decoding the morse, even with help from the RX-morse smartphone app. I made 8 contacts. On the 15 meter band, using the remote radio. Four to Russia, one to the Ukraine and three to the United States. That does add the United States to the list of countries I had morse contacts with. A bit of explanation: CW stands for "continuous wave" and is another term for morse since morse is switching a continuous wave on and off. Update 2020-12-05: And the first confirmation of a United States morse contact is in. Raw score before log checking: 84 points. Ranking in the category "assisted low power 15 meters" is #133 (out of 133) for world, #70 (out of 70) for Europe and #2 (out of 2) for the Netherlands. So the lowest score! Update 2021-05-04: Final score is unchanged so I made no errors and all 8 other stations got my callsign correct. Ranking is now #129 world, #69 europe and #2 the Netherlands.
