The CQWW DX SSB contest is over.I was active for about 16 hours on category
SINGLE OPERATOR 40M/(A) HP.My result is 1334 qso's 36 cq zones and 133 dxcc countries with
a total score of 376,701.
The wx conditions during the weekend were very bad.Sometimes the rain static was s9
making a lot of trouble to copy any weak station.The propagation was in good shape.
Some good dx stations in the log from central and south america,africa,hawai (KH7XS)
and pacific (3D2KJ).
I lost zone 1 KL7RA.Very hard to copy due qrm.Also zones 36,37 and 39.
My working conditions
Antenna OPTIBEAM OB12-4 (2EL on 40m)
Antenna RX 4
Rig Yaesu FT2000

CU all in the next one

Some DX in the log after a long time

In the last two weeks my logbook seems to get some DX again after a long time.
FT5GA,TX5SPA,3D20CR,XV3RRC are some good ones and there are more to come (i hope) like TX5SPM,K4M,XR0Y,TX3A.
10m band seems to give as the oportunity to work some dx during the afternoon with Africa and South America.I have heard a couple of times the Z21ANB,3B8MS beacons,worked FT5GA and TL0A and of course many PY's and LU's.
Yesterday conditions on 40m band was very good.3D20CR during the afternoon was 59+ on cw and on rtty also.Really impressive signal from Conway Reff !!
Let's hope for such good conditions during the CQ WW DX SSB contest.
Good luck all de SV2DCD Leo
