Comments:

This was the Corona virus self isolation contest.  People around the world had no sports to watch, places to go, or partners to take on dates. Activity on the bands was very good. At the same time, there were very few multi-ops. That was a small help in alleviating the crowding on 40 and 20 meters!

Fun contest. Well, except for the QRM.  And stations stacked on top of each other on 20 meters… 

I decided to enter the new “CLASSIC” overlay so only used one radio. WPX is mostly a rate contest so didn’t figure that would be much of a problem.

Took my first mental health break at 04z after a furious run on 40m when I actually got 7132. Then slept some. Came back for a few minutes and then decided to get some sleep.

Set the alarm early for Saturday morning. Got to 20m and it was a zoo. One advantage of being in New England is that we get access to Europe before the rest of the country so I was able to get a frequency. This morning I was just above the SSTV channel. It worked out very well with some big hours.

Took a few breaks when the rate was still good on Saturday.  Finally got serious on Sunday morning.

The low bands were great.  20 was pretty good, but only if you could get a frequency. 15m was a tease with a few loud signals but no volume.  10 was only open a few minutes.

20 meters turned out to be excellent on Saturday evening. It started with a very good JA opening and then was wide open across the USA. That produced some big rates and lots of new prefixes. I pushed through 0530z as I could see my score was doing ok on the scoreboard.

Set the alarm for early Sunday morning. It wasn’t as good as Saturday, but once I had carved out a spot, the stations (and new mults) kept coming. I started the morning more than a million points behind some of the stations I had been chasing on the board. By the end of the 20m run, I had caught and passed some of them. At this point, I was head down trying to make as much score as possible. Only took one break on Sunday to eat and clear my head.

Rates continued to the end of the contest. 20 meters kept producing more new prefixes. Then when I went to 40m, it was rocking as well. Couldn’t get a spot below 7200 so was happy to run W/VE and get more prefixes. Spent the last 20 minutes tuning 40 and 75 just to see what was out there.

Was a thrill to give out QSO #4001 at the end of the contest.  I know I am going to look back and regret not operating more on Saturday!

I dedicate this contest to contestonlinescore.com.  If not for the scoreboard, I would have quit several times.

I did record the full contest and will try to post to my web site after the log deadline.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun!

Comments:

After two days of great conditions leading up to the contest, it was not so good during the contest.

I did this contest for the WRTC qualifying points, and because I needed a distraction from the medical problems of the world.  Always fun to immerse in a contest and forget about reality.

I did something wrong on 40m to be so low on oblasts.

Low bands were very quiet here. I called a number of Russians on 160 and 80 that would just call CQ.  Not even a “?” in reply.

The 10m QSO in the middle of the night was a move of KC1XX from 160 to get the USA mult!

Z81C in South Sudan called me on 20 meters.  Said it was his first QSO with the new license!  With ham radio, you never know who will answer a CQ.

Very happy to work XV1X on 40m LP.  Could not get the attention of 9V1YC a few minutes later. 🙁

I think I was a bit burned out from big efforts in ARRL CW and SSB. Seemed to hit a wall around 0600 and decided to get some sleep. My competitors had 2 good hours after I stopped. Lesson learned!

Thanks to everyone for the QSOs!

Comments:

Thanks to N2NT for the use of the station.  Nothing better than being on a hill on an island!

A few notes as I reflect on the contest:

40m beam had failed.  Replacement was an Inverted vee with top at 50′. Didn’t have the same confidence without the beam, but based on the signal reports, I should have pushed the band harder.

Who knew there were so many hams in Delaware?! Or in Florida?  FL must have been the landing point of the first bounce from here because they were loud on every band.  And lots of them!

Power line noise sucks.  It started Sat morning and lasted through Sat afternoon.  Then the same on Sunday.  It was only in the direction of USA and impacted all antennas.  Combined with the rapid QSB, I spent a lot of time asking people to repeat their call and state.  Sorry if I was an alligator on 15 and 20 at times.

I had a bit of a mental breakdown on Sat due to the line noise. It was a full breakdown on Sun morning.  I decided to close up the station, drive 30 mins to my AirBnB, take a shower, then drive back.  Took 75 mins total.  But, when I returned I had my sanity again and was able to power through the line noise until it stopped just in time for 20m. (Getting up and down the hill is an adventure that requires all wheel drive and a road that does not permit speeding unless you want to break the suspension…)

In a bit of line noise frustration on Sat, I went to 10m and decided to call CQ.  K3LR answered my first CQ. He spotted me and I was able to work K8AZ, VE3EJ and K1TTT.  That was it for the band.  Impressed to be found on the very first CQ.

From the DX side, this contest reminded me of Sweepstakes.  There are limited mults.  It is all about running guys.  I think I called 3 people all weekend.

Only had one radio.  Every band change was a leap into the unknown. I had to stop whatever run was happening, go to the new band, retune the amp, find a new frequency, and then hope to be spotted.  This cycle took 5 to 10 minutes each time.  Worst was to change bands and then have to go back and not be able to find a spot.

Great to have 20m open for the first hour.  Got a fantastic start that dried up toward the end so ‘only’ a 299 hour.  Best 60 mins was 312.

Worked only 4 stations on 6 bands.  141 on 5 bands.

Slept 90 mins the first night.  3 hours the second.  Cost some QSOs, but was hoping to be fresh for the high bands.  No telling what the line noise would have done to me without the sleep!

Really struggled for mults on 160. Missed VE2 and everything in W0 except Colorado! How could that happen?!

Writelog software worked perfectly (as always).  Made a full recording of the contest in one hour mp3 files.  Might be a few hours that would be fun to listen to.

Thanks to everyone who called in.  Was a great experience.  Doing SOAB from the DX side in ARRL DX has been a bucket list item for me. Very entertaining. Congratulations to N6MJ @ TI7W for a commanding win and to W2SC @ 8P5A for putting me back in my place.

Click on the Listen link to hear the audio for that hour. The transmit audio is a bit stronger than the received audio – sorry about that. Didn’t have a way to check audio levels before the contest. What you hear is what I was hearing in the headphones.

Setting Up WriteLog to Send K3DVR Messages

For several years I tried using the sound card in my station PC to handle voice keying. No matter how much I messed with it, I could never make it sound great. The audio would be too hot or too quiet. I did a contest at P40L where the voice keying was done using the Elecraft K3 built-in DVR module. It sounded great so I added the DVR to both of my K3 radios.

WriteLog has the ability to send commands to the radio. The commands can be triggered from the keyboard. It is not difficult to do, but it is not obvious and I wanted to have a record if (when) I need to do it again.

The first step is to tell WriteLog what radio commands to send. You do this by editing the writelog.ini file and adding a section Elecraft_K3_commands.

[Elecraft_K3_commands]
Macro_10=SWT21;
Macro_11=SWT31;
Macro_12=SWT35;
Macro_13=SWT39;
Macro_14=SWT37;SWT21;
Macro_15=SWT37;SWT31;
Macro_16=SWT37;SWT35;
Macro_17=SWT37;SWT39;

The K3 has a bunch of commands to do things like clear the RIT, go split, etc. See the Elecraft K3 programmer manual for explanation.

The next step is to connect the radio commands above to the messages. You replace the normal <msg#.wav> file with the link to the radio command. That uses %GK and the macro number. See below for how it looks in the SSB memory dialog.

If you want to program your DVR messages on the fly, you can add the Shifted SSB memories as well. Or you can just use the buttons on the front of K3 to do message programming since it is not something that you typically need to do often.

The memories are stored with the log so you will need to set them up for each new contest. Once you have it working for one phone contest, you can copy them in by using the Browse button on the memory setting dialog and select a .wl log file that is already set up.

That’s it, you’re done! Pressing the F1 function key will play macro 14, which is message M1 on my K3.

The best thing about this is that your audio through the DVR will always play with the same settings as the audio from your microphone.

Sending Commands with Keyboard Shortcuts

The example above is for using the internal K3 DVR to send voice messages. It is also possible to configure keyboard shortcuts to do the same. For example, I set up a macro to command the rig to set VFO A = VFO B, then move VFO B up 1 Khz, then go into split mode.

As before, the first step is to add the K3 commands to the writelog.ini file. Here are some examples:

Macro_20=FR0;RC;XT0;LN0;SB0;BW0040;  
Macro_21=SWT13;SWT13;FT1;UPB4;XT0;  
Macro_22=SWT13;SWT13;FT1;UPB6;RT0;XT0;  
Macro_23=FR0;RT0;XT0;LN0;SW000;  

Notes:

  • SWT13 is a switch-emulation command that has the same effect as tapping A>B .
  • FT1 enters split mode.
  • The number 5 in UPB4 is not a value in kHz, but an index into the table of step sizes (in this case 1 kHz). VFO displacement, n: 0=1 Hz; 1 or not used=10 Hz; 2=20 Hz; 3=50 Hz; 4=1 kHz; 5=2 kHz; 6=3 kHz; 7=5 kHz; 8=100 Hz; 9=200 Hz.
  • RT0 and XT0 turn off RIT and XIT.

The next step is to use the keyboard shortcuts dialog to define which key will trigger which macro. In the example below, I have set the Ctrl+DASH key combo to send macro 21 to the K3.

A few notes:

Rates the first 18 hours or so were fantastic. Especially going down to 80 meters in the first hour and getting answers.

It felt like we ran out of people to work on the second day. No matter how good the low bands (and they were really good), this contest needs the easy QSOs on 10 and 15. Maybe again some day!

Amazing runs on 160. There were times Sat night when the band hiss on 80 and 160 sounded like 10m. No QRN at all.

Very nice JA opening on 20m Sat evening. I actually got answers to my CQs!

I had planned a semi-serious effort to go for WRTC qualifying points. Decided before the contest I would sleep both nights. First night went according to plan, but didn’t expect 20 to open so early. It was already rocking when I got there. I had planned to sleep Sat evening when the Europeans were sleeping. That worked out well, but I could see on the scoreboard that AA3B gained 150+ QSOs during that time. I made it my mission on Sunday morning to try to close the gap.

I had also planned to sleep Sun morning at 09z. About that time I came down with some kind food poisoning. Had to take a number of unplanned breaks for that. Thought about quitting many times… Thanks to the incredibly close scoreboard competition with AA3B (we were trading places every hour or so) I was motivated to keep pushing. At the finish we are too close to call.

10m was completely empty on Saturday. Was surprised to see spots on Sunday morning. It must have been e-skip because propagation was very spotlight. 8P5A and VP2MSS were in all the time. Everyone else was nil until their 5 minutes of propagation appeared.

DX contests are funny. I can run guys like crazy and then when I tune around a call people, I am always getting beat out and have to stand my turn in line. DXers are loud!

Fun contest. Thanks to everyone around the world who spent their weekend chasing W/VE stations. You make the contest fun.

Always fun.  Love all the multipliers.

Started strong and was almost keeping up with AA3B.  Then remembered that ARRL CW is next weekend so didn’t want to get burned out.  Still operated a lot, but also got some sleep.

Didn’t hear a JA until Sunday evening.

15m did open to Europe… for a few minutes.  9A1A was loud.

Comments:

Always a fun way to spend a winter weekend. Although it was so nice outside both days it felt like Spring!

Not a serious effort. Took plenty of time off during the evenings to binge watch some TV shows. Stayed up too late, then tried to get up for sunrise. Then tired all day. 🙂

Seemed to be able to hear Europeans most of both evenings, but they couldn’t always hear me. Called lots of guys with no response. Must have been crowded in Eu because was very difficult to find a clear frequency enough to get answers.

Can’t believe I missed NV, SD, ND, and WY. We sure missed VY2ZM to hand out the PEI mult too.

Got up at sunrise both mornings, but not much to show for it except the KH6 mult.

Thanks to all for the QSOs. Amazing how activity on Top Band keeps getting bigger and better. Some of the country counts are amazing.

Always fun.  Agreat way to spend a winter weekend.

Put a new 80m dipole up on Sat morning.  It is a keeper.  Had some of my best 80m runs ever.  Band was really good too.

Had trouble getting RTTY to work correctly at the start of the contest.  Finally re-registered OMMT.ocx and then everything started working. Another challenge from a recent hard disk crash and having to rebuild the computer.

Thanks to everyone for the QSOs.  I love how the operating speed and savvy keeps getting better every year.

With so many breaks I have no idea how this log will fit within the limit of only 2 off-times!

I wanted to do the contest, but didn’t do the mental prep work to commit for a full effort.  I “quit” for the first time after just 4 hours.  But, as always, the contest and online scoreboard sucked me in. 

Didn’t hurt that the weather outside was raining and cold. That meant no line noise for most of the contest, but we did have severe rain static on Sunday afternoon. Part of my 40m run during that time was listening on a dipole that was up 30 feet.

Slept 90 mins the first night.  Then 3 hours early Sat evening and then another 90 mins before sunrise.

There were no other daytime bands besides 20m so spent most of my time there.  Lots of spot chasing on the second radio.

That was surely the best 160m conditions we have ever had for a WW CW. I had some short runs to Eu both nights.  Sat night the signal levels were great and there was NO noise.  Even the last hour had good signals from Eu.  Sure never expected to have a better line score on 160 than on 15!

As good as 80m was at Eu sunrise, what happened to 40m?  It was empty even as I worked Europeans on 160 and 80 well past their sunrise.

15 opened very early both mornings, then faded, and then came back as sunset passed the eastern stations.  Glad I got most of my mults on Sat, because was not as good on Sun morning.

Never felt loud all weekend.  And never had the really big rates, but it was always interesting and entertaining.  Had to keep reminding myself not to fall into DXing.  Rate is king in this contest!

The list of broken stuff keeps getting longer.  No rotatable antenna on 15m. Direction indicator on the tribander is out. Tri-bander showed high SWR on 20m Sunday (never had that before).  20m stack system has a control cable short somewhere. 40m antenna is intermittent on receive due to corrosion at the feedpoint…  I should have addressed all this during the nice Summer and Fall weather, but what’s the fun in that?

I did record the contest if anyone wants to hear something.

Thanks to everyone who traveled to give out a multiplier.  I have never had anywhere close to 140 countries on a band as a single op – and half the world was out of range due to propagation.  Missed zones 23, 24,28 and 34.
