NAQP SSB – Jan 2019 – WA3EKL

Over the weekend of January 19/20th I spent time at WA3EKL operating as part of the M/2 team for NAQP SSB. My original intent was to try out some VHF data mode contesting, but as it happens I had a blast in NAQP.

It had been something like 3 years since my last SSB contest, so it took a little time to get back into the swing of it. I only tripped over the call a couple of times. Having not done any of my own voice recordings I ended up shouting at the microphone rather more than the others did.

NAQP CW Jan 2019- AD5XI

This was the first contest I was active in from home, and my first NAQP. A very enjoyable domestic contest. It was interesting to see how many times I mis-copied as AD5X. Usually got queried after sending my name a coupe of times.
