CQWW RTTY 2008

As I am having a few problems with my HF beam I decided to try working in the single op 40M high power section. Not a serious entry, more a bit of fun and give away some points, but really to give the club call an airing. img_0035

I started at the first second after midnight and gave a cQ call, I had been on 7.042 for 2 hours prior to the contest using my home call. Straight away there was a US station calling CQ dead beat with me - do they not listen before calling? I know he could hear me as I worked him about 10 mins before contest started. Just a bad operator I guess!

I went to bed at 03:30 and came down again at 08:00. I have worked more US and EU stations now, solowly building up the contact numbers. All logs will be on ARRL LOTW as soon as the contest ends. Have fun and see you in the pile ups.
