Results - Three Day Weekend TDW 2021
We had a great turnout for the Three Day Weekend TDW 2021 with 124 logs submitted. Of these, 24 were at the time non-members. Following the Contest, 3 of them have joined us. See below.
There were 32 logs in the High Power 100W Category. In 1st place was Bonus Station, John, KC3FL with 308 QSOs and an earth-shaking 39,068 total points. John finished in 1st place in medium power in last year’s TDW. TOP DAWG and 2nd place was last year’s 1st place finisher, Steve, VA3TPS with 262 QSOs and 12,786 points. Steve had the highest score after all the Bonus Stations. In 3rd place was Bonus Station Tom, KD6TR with 248 QSOs and 28,632 points from propagation abused PNW Washington state. Tom was last year’s TDW Top Dawg.
These results of the TDW may shake up the Rollo Cup Contest Championship (RC3) rankings. Standby!!
In the Medium Power 50W Category with 55 logs uploaded, 1st place went to Buz, WA5AMM with 102 QSOs and 25,360 points. Buz has made quite an impression since he joined in March. In 2nd place was Terry, KZ4KX with 97 QSOs and 24,698 points. Terry joined us in December. Good job both of you as new members. In 3rd place again this year was Bonus Station Lee, N5SLY with 95 QSOs and 22,315 points.
In the Low Power 25W Category, with 30 logs, 1st place went to stalwart early member #25 Steve, W3HF with 205 QSOs and 20,355 points. Steve finished in 3rd place last year. In 2nd place was David, WA3LXD with 198 QSOs and 18,724 points. His performance in the TDW should pop him over the top to earn LONP! In 3rd place this year was our Executive Director, Jim, K5SP with 167 QSOs and 15,929 points. Jim finished in 1st place last year, swapping positions with Steve. Good to see Jim take a break from his gigantic task of getting our Mailings sent and repairing the website to enjoy the PSK-31 Contest world.
The QRP 5W Category had 7 entries. In 1st place again this year was Steve, VA3FLF with 58 QSOs and 3,178 points. Very respectable results with Flea-Power! In 2nd place was Don, KM4UDX with 37 QSOs and 1,751 points. In 3rd place was Dave, KM6CPF with 31 QSOs and 1,513 points.
Our heartiest appreciation to the Bonus Stations who dedicated many, many hours to ensuring that contestants had a chance for that significant 100 point bonus!
