What a great contest this is 🙂
30 hours of non stop action and no worries about chasing or getting that mult
on another band… Just run stations like h….. and the mults will come your
When things did slow down on sunday i took a sweep on the bands and worked as
many as i could of those yellow calls in the bandmap
After several years now running SO2R on RTTY I am still improving my operator
skills and that’s what it’s all about for me 🙂
I still would like to see this as a 36 hour effort like in WPX CW and SSB !!
Olaf will sign his own call sign LB8IB from LA8W/LN8W in this years CQ WW RTTY WPX Contest.
CQ WW RTTY WPX Contest 2012 is held on the weekend 11-12 of February. Single operators are limited to 30 hours operation. They may operate more but only the first 30 hours count for your own score(as far as I understand).
