Another World Wide DX Contest in the books, this time Single Band on 15 m. Quite unhappy on Saturday. Couldn’t get much going, no good runs, best hour was 90 QSOs and that was not even running but search & pouncing! Band closed around 16z. A few signals popped up every now and then afterwards but all down in the noise, i.e. non-workable. A bit over 500 QSOs on day 1.

Sunday was a little better including some nice runs into North America in the afternoon but even that included my best hour was just 130 QSOs. The band stayed open an hour longer than on Saturday and it felt like condx were better, too.

Concerning the signal quality of certain stations: A picture is worth a thousand words.

I had purposely decided to go for 15 instead of 10 m. The latter would probably have been more interesting propagation-wise but I still had to earn the missing points for our BCC internal “Frequent Contester” program. Now I’ve got a good “reserve” of about a million points … 😉
