FIRST AZ QSO PARTY
BAND CONDITIONS WERE ONLY FAIR THIS YEAR.
ENJOYED MY 1ST ARIZONA QSO PARTY! GREAT FUN!
I WAS RAISED IN PHOENIX. IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO WORK STATIONS IN MY "HOME" STATE. 73'S, BERT, K6CSL
I only got to work a few hours. I had lots of fun from here in Navajo county. Will try to work it longer next year.
ANTENNA IS RAIN GUTTER AND DOWNSPOUTS.
TOUGH CONDITIONS ON SATURDAY, SEE YOU AGAIN IN 7QP
GREAT TIME. WORKED ALL I HEARD. VERTICAL ANTENNA DOWN SO ALL CONTACTS MADE ON 160M DELTA LOOP HORIZONAL AT 10 FEET.
First contest ever! JUST HAD A LITTLE FUN OVER THE WEEKEND! 73
I'm new to contesting and logging software (N1MM).
Am newly licensed. My first log submission. Great (first) contest! I worked mostly the club station K7T, only a few at my home.
Really tough band conditions on the west coast this weekend :)
WRITELOG DOES NOT SUPPORT AZQP. CREATED WITH PAQP TEMPLATE, THEN CORRECTED. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 5-CHARCTER AZXXX WOULD NOT WORK IN THE WRITELOG AND WAS ENTERED AS XXX AND THEN CHANGED TO AZXXX MANUALLY. NO SCORING IS DONE BY WRITE LOG, THERE IS NO SUMMARY SHEET THAT FITS. NEVER HEARD THE BONUS STATION.
KENWOOD TS-950SD, HEIL BM-10, AND G5RV UP 50 FEET, RUNNING N-S AT 6,053 FEET ELEVATION FROM LARAMIE COUNTY, WY. APARTMENT QTH.
THANKS FOR THE NEW COUNTIES.
KENWOOD TS480HX - 200W, 40/20 FAN DIPOLE, DRAKE MN2000 TUNER
MY FAVORITE EXCHANGE: I GIVE THE GUY HIS INFO; SERIAL NUMBER AND NOVEMBER TANGO. HE RESPONDS WITH "THANK YOU FOR NORTH TORONTO." I'M GONNA BE GIGGLING ABOUT THAT FOR A LONG TIME!
RIG WAS FTDX5000 AND BUTTERNUT HF6V ALL-BAND VERTICAL.
RULES PROPOSAL: AZQP WOULD BE MORE REWARDING AND ENCOURAGE MORE AZ OPS IF COUNTY MULTIPLIERS WERE ALLOWED FOR EVERYONE. IN-STATE QS ARE FAR MORE DIFFICULT THAN OUT-OF-STATE QS AND SHOULD BE REWARDED WITH A MULT.
Ran assisted so I could be SOSRTwoContest, only did it for 1 1/2 hrs. Enjoyed the QP even though conditions were not great. Thanks to everyone who worked me.
I WORKED EVERY STATION I CALLED; ALL FIVE OF THEM. WISH I HAD MORE TIME.
We had a good time and I got two brand new hams in the shack during the contest to make some contacts!
Hello, I have participated in the contest and I wanted to send you the logs from the contest to see how I did against the rest of the operators. This was my 1st QSO Party from AZ so I had lots of fun. 73's!
