20 meters was very good for me today.  Got more contacts this year than last and it seems that more folks are using all the different modes.  Had a lot of fun participating.  Thanks everyone I had a QSO with.

I am using the PSK31 built into my KX3 and using a PX3 display and macro "generator" .

I am coping IL and FL but have also seen K5SP.  Not a lot of noise (S1 with preamp off).  Vertical R8 and 80m loop antenna. 
I have only made a few QSO's with FL as "this" is mostly a debug process to play with the built in PSK mode.

Band is horrible here, have a S9 noise, sounds like someone arc welding.  Seeing very few traces, and only copy for a couple mins then they are gone..gone. 

Been calling CQ for hours, and only a few takers.  Is my antenna still good?

In 2nd Place, High Power was Steve, VA3TPS and in 3rd Place was Bob, KK6KMU.

Low Power 1st Place was Jim, K5SP, our illustrious Executive Director, with 82 QSOs. This in spite of not earning any Erin Go Bragh bonus points.

In 2nd Place, Low Power was Milt, N6MG closely followed by Steve, W3HF in 3rd Place.

The sole entrant and 1st Place in QRP Power was non-member Sameer, KI5EIF, of Austin TX. Congratulations and welcome to our contest. We hope to see your application to join us soon.

Re: CONTEST MACRO'S #information

 

Dave,
In Fldigi you can get away with two macros, <MODEM:BPSK31> and <MODEM:QPSK31>.  That will change your mode to either BPSK31 or QPSK31.  Down at the lower left corner it will say either BPSK31 or QPSK31 and if you left click on that box all the sub modes will pop up and you can left click on a sub mode and you're all done.
