Result

I was on for short periods only, but this was fun. I made more QSOs than I expected. Nothing spectacular ... The wire dipole is still working good for me.

First time after years I made it for the CQWW-DX CW contest. This contest was a new experience with the monoband 40m dipole. Only a few stations came back on CQ calls. Therefore I called CQ only a few times. Some DX stations however returned easily on my call. On the other hand sometimes I even had no chance getting stations that came with a big signal. Those were the moments, where I missed a PA. I heard a lot of DX, but this was unrechable for me at all. In this contest I used my new software WIN-TEST for the first time which worked like a charm. I had great fun throughout the 6 hours I was on altogether. ... and CW IS NOT DEAD AT ALL !!!
