2013 CQWW RTTY Contest

40m was open the evening of Sept 27 and morning of Sept 28. Many Japan stations. 15m came alive about 14:51 Z. My luck turned at about 1600Z on 28 Sept. Started hitting Northern and southern European stations.  15m remained open into the evening with propagation into Japan and across the US.  By about 0100Z 15m meters had pretty much petered out. At about that time 20m came to life for US contacts. Good activity into Europe again on Sunday morning on 15m.

I ended the contest with 112 QSOs. Here is a rough breakdown:

  • Worked 45+ states/provinces
  • Worked 20+ countries
