CQ World Wide DX Contest

10m opened up worldwide to the great enjoyment of hams participating in this weekend's CQ World Wide DX Contest.  I joined in the fun and participated in the contest with my modest station.  The QSO's were plentiful.  I completed 170 QSO's with 97 countries earning a final score of 47,854.

The cold and wet weather provided additional motivation to stay in the shack.  No sense in getting to know "Sandy" also nicknamed the Frankenstorm any more than on a first name basis.

We rather liked the Italian IO5O qrz.com webpage with the club's live streaming video of their participation in the contest.  A unique way to view radio.  Thanks for the contact Ten-Fifty Contest Group.
