Unable to go out portable for this years contest i decided to have a go in the fixed station with the remote MW2I station
The interesting part of the fixed section is that if the station worked is not a portable or is not a multiplier then it is valueless. Hence no point in calling cq and working streams of no point qsos
The K3 was used at 70W with the Cushcraft A3S 2.5 element tribander on 10/15/20 and the 80m dipole on 40/80/160m
The remotehams software was used to remote the k3 front panel and send the audio to the client computer. Remote desktop was used to run the N1MM logging software on the server computer. Keying was achieved witha K1EL winkey at the server end
It was only possible to operate 11.5 hours during the contest but the goal of 100000 points was achieved:-
Band QSOs Pts DXC Pt/Q
1.8 32 248 7 7.8
3.5 63 220 17 3.5
7 52 182 18 3.5
14 60 200 27 3.3
21 50 136 26 2.7
28 20 52 13 2.6
Total 277 1038 108 3.7
The 80m dipole worked surprisingly well on 160m and 40m.
The result was better than expected 6th in the fixed section (4th UK station), not bad for 11.5 hours!
