2021-07-12 I participated in the IARU HF World Championship 2021
This weekend was the IARU HF World Championship contest and I participated after fully planning this in advance. I made sure my contest logger was set up and communicating with the radio and the morse keyer in advance. I participated on the 10, 15, 20 and 40 meter bands. In total 125 contacts. 70 in SSB (speech) and 55 in CW (morse).Band 160 80 40 20 15 10 QSO's 0 0 32 53 32 8 Mult 0 0 22 24 13 8 Pts: 381 Mul: 67 Score: 25527I had more trouble decoding morse than I hoped for and conditions weren't ideal. Not a lot of stations outside Europe, a few Asian ones and one US station in morse. First conformations showing up on Logbook of The World, which gives me Bosnia-Herzegovina on 15 meters confirmed and Bosnia-Herzegovina and Switzerland confirmed in CW. Always nice to get some new things in the log but I usually only see that after the contest. Raw score calculation when I submitted the log:261 Qpts x 65 Mults = 16,965 (one or more Zones/HQs in the copied exchange not recognized).I guess the problem with the exchange is with EO0HQ in Austria giving OV and not OVSV as expected but I am 100% sure I copied that correctly. Update 2021-11-17: The final results are in: 117 valid contacts, 65 multipliers: 14820 points.
