#cqww SSB 2016 from a contestsite

Together with my XYL I decided it was time to try someting else for contesting. I knew local contest station PA6GR had a need of operators for the upcoming CQWW SSB contest so I will participate the contest together with this team. We decided to apply for the section multi operator, one radio, low power. Unfortunately we only have one good antenna, a large 3 element 20m monoband beam at 20m agl. So main band will be 20m. At night we will use a wire antenna fed with through a 1:9 UNUN for other bands, not the best but good enough to get some multipliers I hope. Now, we wish some nice propagation and nice DX!  My shift is from Saturdaymorning 5 UTC - 13 UTC and 22 UTC- 8 UTC Sundaymorning. I wish everyone a lot of fun and hope to work some of you readers!


  1. Good luck Bas. I try single operator all (10/15/20) bands.

  2. Ah kijk. De shift is bekend. Dat wordt dan zaterdagavond. Succes en veel plezier!

  3. Hoi Bas, als de familieverplichtingen het toelaten zal ik zondermeer naar je uitkijken/luisteren. Alvast veel succes met de contest. 73 Hans, PE1BVQ
