I wouldn't worry Tim, it should all be fun.

I'm sat waiting with my 10 Watts and Inverted V dipole waiting for the Radio Gods to open the ionosphere. Very Happy


For my first go at 10m I'll be chuffed to bits with any contacts I make! Smile

So it all starts tomorrow!

I take it this is SSB only? I don’t use digimodes or CW anyway, but to keep it reasonably fair I’m assuming there’s no modes being used that are below the audibility of the human ear, as in no computer assisted “QSOs” (if you can call them that) 😂😂😂😂

Had a listen this morning.   Nothing!  Rotor is not connected, so not sure if to point toward states or Europe.

Just a thought, if there are more than 10 involved, you can set up a club log  in 
www.clublog.org

May mean less work for you.

Anyway, managed to sort the logging software to create a Charie-Tango 10m contest log only.
Something to do while the bands were quite today, Best I could do was Spain!10m Dxcc summer challenge  - Page 3 Screen11

Club log has been used in the past and is very good but not everyone uses it so thought we would keep it just on the forum

Not much work involved on my part so no problem

Not a dickie-bird here either!
(There was me thinking it was my rubbish station.Very Happy)

Looks like the Radio Gods aren't smiling just yet. Scanning 10m the last couple of days felt like scanning the old CB bands again.....static, static, static! Wink



Fingers crossed for some activity.

A awesome 8 mile QSO from Barnstaple to M7PDH in Bideford at 15.00 on 28500.

To make this astonishing contact I used my finest equipment worth about £120, namely a Yeticom Optima with 10 watts into a T2LT! 

At least I won’t finish with a total of zero...
