Dueling CQ or Alternating CQ is a great technique to squeeze some extra QSO’s out of slow bands, or general slow rate contesting often experienced from Norway. Below is a audio file and log excerpt from a dual CQ I did in the ARRL DX CW 2013. I actually did a lot of dueling CQ, but this excerpt looked alternating enough for an example. Working on 20M(left ear) and 15M(right ear)
Remember this is done from Norway and we don’t generate the biggest pileups
It’s 20 minutes long. You listen to as long as you like of course. 46 QSOs made. 33 on 20M and 13 on 15M. Beats being on only one band doesn’t it. Doing this in serial number contest is much more difficult though. Continue reading →

I was LB1GB in EUHFC CW only. Used the contest to prepare Writelog and MK2R+ for this years SO2R season. We have dropped Win-Test as it doesn’t fully support all our activities. Better to use one software for all activities. Less hassle!
Had great fun during the contest. Hope to see you all next year.
