Worked All Germany (WAG) Contest 2018

Radio contestPosted by Mikael Tue, October 23, 2018 09:44:59

Last weekend, October 20-21, it was time for Worked All Germany (WAG) contest and I intended to participate in the QRP-Mixed Mode class.

But since there were very bad conditions on the bands, I instead participated in the Single Operator CW Low Power class.

The competition was 24 hours starting at 15:00 GMT Saturday 20 October. Unfortunately, I could not participate in the contest until the end at 15:00 GMT on Sunday. I had to go QRT just before 12 o'clock GMT and I missed the last five hours. If one look at the whole competition, I was off-air for 6 hours and 40 minutes, which in turn meant that I was actually on-air for 17 hours and 20 minutes.

I'm still pleased with my results on 40 and 80 meters band and I got a couple of new DOK's which was nice. I will try to beat my result in next year's competition and hopefully, the conditions are better than it was this year..

Thank you for all the fine QSOs this time.
