RDXC 2006

Only had time for about 5 hours in this one, and was planning to do S&P on 20m, but my CW key became unreliable again, so I was almost only on phone. 118 QSOs (798 points) in 27 DXCCs and 35 oblasts = claimed 49476 points. Unfortunately, though, I know that some of these are busted: I don't know whether it's my voice or the compression on the 706, but a lot of the Russian stations copied my number '4' as '2' and my '8' as '6'. Maybe I'll have to learn Russian numbers in time for next year :S

The preliminary results from this spring's RDXC contest have just been released. I was placed 120th out of 205 entrants in the World Single Operator - 14MHz category: not bad for my poor QTH, low power and limited time on. The crucial bit of the UBN is that I had the following penalties: bad calls = 1, not in logs = 1, bad exchanges = 2, and 18 QSOs which did not score. This makes my resulting score 31694, down from the claimed 49476 by almost 36%.
