4th Of July Contest & Silver Award
Hi all tis now 2 days after the Independence Day Contest on Hamsphere, and on reflection it was a pretty good event,though I must admit to being disappointed at the turn out of USA stations, all in all they were pretty thin on the ground , Shame on you guys. Despite that I managed 80 contacts myself not record breaking but fun none the less.
I had not operated in contest mode since the CQ WW back in 2000 and to say the least I was pretty damn rusty LOL. I did not however work the complete 24 hours at my age you gotta sleep that’s a necessity LOL. But on the whole I thoroughly enjoyed myself driving my XYL to distraction at times doing so .
The Contest did of course have it’s advantages,in that I picked up the required Countries to advance to the Hamsphere Silver Award, and a few more besides to get me on the way to the Gold Award.
73′s to all the stations I worked and thank you for making it a most entertaining day I look forward to speaking with you all on Hamsphere.
