Contest Results

Perhaps my biggest enjoyment on amateur radio is contesting. It is an opportunity to challenge yourself both physically (remaining awake) and mentally (testing your propagation knowledge, operating skills and managing pileups). Taking a holiday and operating from remote areas can also help with the scores.

Below are a few of the contests I have operated in over the years. I don’t use a linear and these are a mix of 100watts and QRP.

Also using fairly modest home made wire antennas ranging from a 600′ loop, parallel dipoles, coaxial dipoles, moxon rectangle, end fed and only one contest did I use a 3 element tri-bander.

That said, I recently purchased a Prosistel PST1524TV inverted V dipole. It is very good on 40m and 15m, pretty good on 20m but a little deaf on 10m.
