HCRA’s 2014 10M Contest Results

ARRL 10M Claimed Results For HCRA.

This year propagation was really good. According to some people, you may never see 10 meter band conditions this good for a long time. The band was alive with decent windows to EU and SA. I hope you all had a great time on the air!

Soapbox Comments

Mike (NZ1MT): I operated QRP SSB with only an end fed dipole attic antenna and only
operated when I had time during the day between household jobs. The
propagation on the 10M band was excellent and seemed better than
previous years. A lot of fun using my new ICOM IC-703.

James(WD1S):  Made good use of N1MM to spot multipliers this year.   I was using a 160m inverted L and a G5RV and surprisingly worked almost everyone I could hear.

Al (N1AW): Approximately 6 hours operating time. 24 states, 3 provinces, 21 DX, 114 Qs 48 multipliers. At my age I may never see another 10 meter contest like this one.

Jeff (AB1WT, Formally KB1VKY): i can’t wait until next years so i can do it again.

Larry (W1AST): It was great fun and I had Jim, KC2FEV and Bob, NO4MM helping me. We’re already planning on doing it again next year

Jeff (NT1K): This is my first 10M contest. I did SOLP mixed without using spotting assistance which made a bigger challenge for me on CW. My new 3el beam is working fantastic.

Bob (NQ1C): Andrew and I operated the 10M contest as a multi-op from Montgomery, MA. Andrew built a 10M dipole antenna for a science project for school and since our G5RV came down, we decided to use the 10M dipole to run the contest. Conditions were great and the dipole, only up about 15 feet, worked quite well. We interspersed working the contest with visiting family so it wasn’t a full-out effort, but we had fun.

Ed (KB1NWH as W1NY): Lots of great opening, not enough time for the chair
