Anyone get involved in the ARRL International SSB DX contest this past weekend? How did you do? I find it amazing that people travel out of country to talk DX back to the US. I spoke to several people who live in nearby towns but were in another country for the contest.
I was looking for as many countries as possible. Using 100 watts on an 80m dipole, I spoke to 110 people in 47 countries, plus Alaska and Hawaii, on 80m, 40m, 20m, and 15m! It was a good weekend. I had to stop early, though.
This is the list of countries I was able to reach...
Antigua & Barbuda
Federal Republic of Germany
St. Kitts & Nevis
Turks & Caicos Is.
US Virgin Is.
