|Map of Stations Worked in the Mini-CWT|
Every Wednesday the CW Operators Club has a mini contest called the MINI-CWT. It runs for one hour – 10:00 pm to 11:00 pm local time here in Kansas. This time works great for me – kids are in bed, and house chores are complete!
This is the second time I have operated this contest and I had a blast. Conditions on 20 meters were awful here – I didn’t hear one signal on the band except some digital signals. So I immediately went to 40 meters and stayed there for the duration.
All told I worked 20 stations, for a score of 400 points- all stateside with one except being Canada. I was really happy with this result!
When I worked the June contest I only worked 6 stations for a total score of 36 points, so I greatly improved tonight!
You can see a map of the locations of the stations I worked during the contest last night. I created this using a site that I found that is really cool. It is QSOMap.org – and it lets you upload an ADIF file and it maps the locations.
I really enjoy working contests. Running QRP it gives you the opportunity to work some really good operators that also have excellent antennas. Everyone I called last night, I worked!
Thanks to all the ops that pulled my signal out – you made it a fun night!
