We had a great fun while turning the old LA record with a 2mill overhead.
1271 prefixes is due to very hard work at the mult station at all times.
Any mistakes made we blame on the B vitamins consumed during the contest!

ARRL CW 2013 duel CQ

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). Please use headphones when listening since there is one radio in each ear.

Remember this is done from Norway and we don’t generate the biggest pileups 🙂

LN8W Dual CQ ARRL CW 2013 20/15 meters
