CQ WW CW 2019

After I was able to finish DL #1 and TOP 10 Europe in CQ WW CW 2018 I wanted to do it again!

See 2018 story here: http://df7ee.de/dx-hotel/

The firs few hours felt very slow chasing down mults all the time with 100w on the low bands, but this is part of the game I think. I operated 100% S&P and If i ran out of mults I tried to work 3 Point QSOs instead of easy to pick EU stations. I think I managed to put a few more hours in than last yeat and the claimed score is about 10% up from last year. DXCC Mults went from 450 to above 500. That seems to be a good sign.

When I passed the 2 million point about 25 minutes before the end I decided to stop here. I was totally exausted and the last  20 QSOs have been very slow in the log. I hope that one does not fire back on me …..

 

Thanks again to Carsten DM9EE to let me use his superstation @ DX Hotel Holzminden. We put up a litle celebration at the end of the contest for breaking two million before going to bed.

I worked a classic DXCC 100 in the first 8 hours and added a some more during the contest summing up to 152.

The map looks like this:

Here is the station setup a few hours befor the contest. SO4S (Single OP 4 Screens)

We will see in a few month what it was good for ….
