Wow, it has been over a month since my last post! I promise to post at least once a week from now on.
Two weekends ago, I participated in the ARRL SSB Sweepstakes, like I try to do every year. This year, I got 130 QSOs in 52 sections, for a total of 13,520 points!
Here is my section map:
This year, my contacts were divided between 15 meters (at home) and 20 meters (mobile). I was pleased to get most of New England and North Dakota, as those are often hard to get. I only heard one New Mexico station, and I wish I’d worked him on 15 meters instead of 20 meters. I have not worked a NM station on 15 meters for my Worked All States award. Speaking of which, I did not hear an Alaska station at all, and that is the only state I am missing on 20 meters.
Thank you for reading my post! I will likely post a monthly summary from October in the next few days.
