FOC Marathon 2016

Conditions were very good on most bands with some nice DX worked. This time I entered the Open QRO section as I decided to run the amplifier. I was averaging about 200W output depending on band. The antennas were the usual Cobwebb, dipole and Inverted-L. The station worked flawlessly and other than CQ calls I spent the contest keying by hand. 18 hours in the chair according to the log.

Decided to use DXlog.net and had made my own contest definition file based on the BW QSO Party one that ships with the software. Functionally everything was fine, but scoring is quite complex and that was left to Marabella by G3WGV.
