CQ160 SSB Update

The final result for the weekend ended up at 340 contacts worked in 39 DXCC and 2 US states (ME and MA) and one Canadian province (POI). The total time active was 17 hours, considerable less than in the CQ160 CW, maybe because the activity on the band was less and nighttime shorter than in the CW contest a month ago.

Happy New Year!

Once again its time to pop the cork of a bottle of chilled Dom Pérignon and celebrate another fun year at SEØX, and what a year it’s been! 2011 was the year when the sun finally got back into the game and once again fuelling fantastic propagation paths on high bands. For me 2011 started

CQWW 160 SSB Report

Lets start with the conclusion; SSB contesting on 160 meters is fun and very challenging, but SSB and Topband is not the best combination, especially if you are in a country with only 40 kHz permitted band space. The SSB part of the 160 meter contest was a lot slower than the CQWW 160 CW

CQWW 160 CW Report

In my opinion CQWW 160 CW is one of the most fun, exiting and challenging contests. Topband is the “Mt Everest of DX” pushing the operator and his equipment to the limits.  A topband addict constantly improves his station, listens to noise and statics for hours before keying and he never gets an overdose of
