This years CQ WPX RTTY Contest was just to test the new Contest Software “N1MM  Logger+” and the new GS53b tube in the amplifier. Both worked excellent and my short time activity endet up with 311 QSO’s.


CQ WW DX 160 CW 2017

This weekends “CQ World Wide 160-Meter CW Contest” was a great fun at all. I did not plan to participate, because my Amplifier quit the days before and I had no spare tube for it. After tuning 160 m late Friday night I found more and more interrest to make some QSO’s just with the K3 barefoot. Working Europe was no problem at all but DX, especially NA, was a challenge and hard to fight against the QRO participants. Finally it ended up with 605 QSO’s, 51 DXCC, 7 US-States and 4 Continents.
