A few weeks ago I was stunned to receive in the mail from ARRL HQ a certificate with my name and call on it for taking first place in the Idaho section for QRP operators in the 2013 ARRL Sweepstakes! Looking back on my post from that contest I noted how favorable propagation conditions were, but I never dreamed I would actually win a section.
Well. here I am a year later on the eve of the 2014 ARRL Sweepstakes and looking for defend my humble title. I’ll be running my KX3 at about 5 watts, using the same dipole/loop antenna configuration.
Good luck to all those competing! I just check band conditions and things look great! 10 meters is really hot. I can’t wait to get started!
