The Contest

Clock

□ About the contest

This contest took place from 00:00 UTC on 5 March 2011 until 23:59 on 6 March 2011.

I entered this contest as M0BLF in the SOAB HP category.

QTH: G6UW, Cambridge, England
IOTA: EU-005, Great Britain

Equipment

Rig

□ The Rigs and Antennas used in the entry

I operated using a FT-1000MP, with 400 W. Antennas: Stepp-IR.

Adjudicated score

□ The summary of points I made during the contest

For the first time ever, I had a perfect log. Absolutely zero points lost during the adjudication process. Wow.

The final result was 43,026 points, including 202 QSOs and 71 multipliers. This meant that I was 10th place (of 26) in England in the Single-Operator category, and 181st (of 709 entrants) in Europe in that category.

Write-up

□ My comments about the contest

This was just a quick play in the contest for a few hours on the Saturday, S & P operating only.

Conditions were disappointing on 10m, where only 1 contact was made despite the recent increase in solar activity. It was good to see 15m in good shape, however, which had the additional benefit of keeping 20m relatively orderly.
