PODXS 070 Club 160m Great Pumpkin Sprint, Oct 9, 2000z to Oct 10, 2000z; PSK31; Bands: 160m Only; RST + (state/province/country); Logs due: October 17.





 

For those of you that have limited space for antennas, here's an article on a shortened 40, 80, 160 mtr antenna.  it's about 85 feet long and will at least get you on 160.

Added some extra wire this summer. May not be the greatest, but it does match.

Hope to work somebody during the contest.

Look for everyone on 1807……..

I note:

First Alaska station worked counts as two (2) multipliers (country and state).
First Hawaii station worked counts as two (2) multipliers (country and state).

is nice for the west coast...

Maybe (next time, for ALL contests) add the east coast US islands PR + VI ??  to be fair?

Steve -

Note that the intent of this "observation" is that since both Alaska and Hawaii are states and DXCC entities, they count as both for the purposes of the contest. This isn't really a special rule--it's acknowledging that our definition of "country" in SPC-based contests uses the DXCC definition of entity.

It isn't really biased towards west coast entries any more than the preponderance of DXCC entities in the Caribbean and Europe are biased towards east coast entries.

If/when either PR or VI becomes the 51st state, that observation will be updated to include it.
