ARRL DX CW contest + increase SFI = great conditions
20 meters is jumping with action
I am taking a very leisurely approach to the ARRL CW DX contest, just having fun giving out some points. I will say the increased SFI has served me well. I have no problem being heard all over Europe with 3 watts with my dipole in the attic. I can only hear reports of how 10 and 15 are doing (and they are very good) as I don't at this time have any antennas setup for those bands. One thing I find happens is the big gun super stations are flying with the CW and in some cases I don't even send my exchange and they are already thanking me and moving on.....happen 4 times so far...........Oh well contest on!!!!!!!!
