CQ WPX CW Contest – poor propagation and Aurora

June 03, 2011 By: admin Category: Contesting

I worked last weekend CQ WPX Contest in the single operator all bands class at OH1F. During the SSB leg I lost to top Finnish stations almost 1000 qsos, now I was doing better against OG8X, OG0Z and OG2B. Unfortunately propagation was the worst for years – we had several big flares from the sun during the weekends – I didn’t even manage to break my own record of this contest. I worked only a bit over 200 North American stations in the contest!

“Der Angst under aurora oval 2011 edition”

No good DX runs, but some weird openings. Coronal holes and flares made life difficult in Northern Europe. 80% EU, 9 % NA, 9% AS.
