Sometimes I hate contests, especially when they occupy special frequencies. I was planning to do some PSK and QRP CW. But... there was a RTTY contest going on. Nothing is holy anymore. They occupy QRP frequencies, PSK frequencies and even JT65A frequencies. Now I know why I quit ham radio in the late eighties. I was fed up with this ego centered radio operations. And yes, when we can't fight them, we join them. The only opportunity to work another station. OK, I stop complaining on this Monday morning. Saturday my daughter was having her birthday, she is 12 years old now. What a beautiful girl she is, I am a proud dad, with such a girl.
Just turn on the rig, on 20 meter I can hear only one CW station, and very weak. On 30 meter I did hear some CW activity.
