Well, I’m not a contester… not in the competitive manner anyhow, but I did enjoy PSKFest. I was only able to operate hit-and-miss, but managed to get 30+ QSOs, which helped my WTW, LONP, and Grids totals.
40 meters was lousy at the start, but finally settled and because usable later on. 80 was pretty good from the start – at least I was working the stations I could hear.
I’d love to see the contest expanded to 160 meters too.

One typical contest aspect that has been missing from our 070 contests is SOAPBOX. So here's your chance. Post your 2018 PSK Fest stories and experiences here. Anything from "had fun" to "it was so cold the iguanas froze, fell out of the palm trees, and pulled down my homebrew 16 mile long receive-only beverage antenna." Let's hear how it was for you!
