UKEICC 80m SSB 2 March 2016 results

Event: UKEICC 80m SSB contest
Section: QRP
Logger: N1MM+ 
Station: Yaesu FT-817ND (5W)
Antenna: 84m horizontal loop at 7m AGL.

Difficult start, although I was CQing before the contest to keep a frequency clear and was even spotted on the DXcluster. Unfortenately the frequency was immidiatly hijacked. Don't blame anyone. It's just a hobby. Continued with S&P and had a small run after I found another clear frequency. Best DX was UT2II, although he didn't get my call correct. I had a good QSO with fellow blogger EI9KC Ark. Anyway, this middle of the week 1 hour contest is a lot of fun. And certainly a good excersise for QRP operating techniques.

Complete log showing me the errors, very interesting. I made a typo with PC4H, so unfortunate and stupid. UT2II indeed didn't have my call correct, I actually had the idea he was not really listening as I repeated my call at least 5 times.

Only made 2 errors with wrong locators. I know this should have been 0 errors. QRP DXing is difficult but isn't a excuse for a typo and bad listening. I now know I have to work on the first rule of the DX code of Conduct. I will  listen, listen and listen again....

I'm propabely not able to participate next time. Besides that I haven't got a good 80m antenna next time as well. So participation and improving the score will be next year.
