CQWW CW 2011

Saturday: Well, I did switch on the radio this Saturday morning. But had only limited time. First QSO was made late in the afternoon on 10m. But 10m did close early, so down to 15m. Only 9 QSOs made till now only with the USA and Canada. Hopefully I do have more time for it at Sunday.

Sunday: Switched on the radio and computer late Sundaymorning. But no time till about 14:30 UTC. I concentrated on the 10m band and made some QSOs. Most of them with the USA and Canada again. CW is more luck then wisdom for me, the computer does most of the work. Then I came across the signal of 5X1NH Uganda, a couple of calls later I made the QSO. New DXCC all band and on 10m. 10m closed early again at about 19:30 UTC, so I end with 29 QSO. 23 on 10m and 6 on 15m. Did unfortunately not have much time for this international event this year. But after all am lucky with the new DXCC.
