2021-05-31 I participated in the CQ WPX CW contest 2021
This weekend was the CQ WPX CW contest 2021 and on Saturday I had some time to participate between family things.

I started on the 10 meter band and stayed there: I managed to get 29 contacts in the log on that band, there were good signals across most of Europe.

I had fun and surprised myself by decoding some morse by ear better than my computer (yes, I consider this very assisted when I use both spotting networks and a morse decoder). I noted a serial number 246 that my computer completely did not decode so I wasn't very sure. The next serial number was indeed 247 so I got it right in one go!

Claimed score is 812 points. I'll see what happens when the logs are checked. At least contesting is good for other rankings: I now have Poland and Lithuania confirmed in morse.

Update 2021-11-10: The log check is in: 0 errors! Which is really nice for a CW contest. Again a precise selection of category helps: since I entered in the single operator 10 meter category I became number 1...
