During this weekend's ARRL CW contest (starting at 00:00 on Saturday 18th Feb, UTC), I will be operating a part-time non-serious SOSB(A)/40 LP entry in the contest. If you have a Firefox webbrowser, you should be able to see a live map of where my contacts are as and when I make them, at the address below. Sorry it doesn't work in IE (yet) but no apologies for the lack of prettiness - it is only a prototype of an idea I had for some code to be used at public special event stations. Let me know what you think.
Probably my worst contest ever, but nevermind. As planned, I did it SOSB(A)/40 LP, and was pleased with the 40m dipole I put up, which was about 2 S-units above my vertical. A couple people struggled with my callsign, but most were OK so either I was strong, or SCP was doing its job :) The problem was that I was ill on Saturday night, so I missed the whole opening during darkness on Saturday-Sunday. With other family commitments, I only had 6 hours on-time. The final (very feeble) score reflects this: 67 QSOs, but I was pleased to have 22 mults, giving a total of 4,422 points.
In the SSB leg, M0BLF won't be on, but hopefully I'll be able to spend a couple hours op-ping M4A, before the CUWS annual dinner at Caius college.
