I didn’t have the opportunity last year to work the SAC contest. This year however, I did make all the arrangements. On Friday, I put up my low-hanging 80m dipole and fixed the radials on my vertical Biggir antenna. All was set and ready to go. I got on and started running, but I felt like I couldn’t get a descent run going. That was a feeling I had through most of the contest. I do have a small station, so I guess that is one of the reasons. On the other hand, I also felt like the activity wasn’t quite there.
Ok, the rules this year was changed so that you could be SO(A) without being in the multi-class. That was very good. I also feel that something should be done to increase the activity. Why not change it to something like the Russian DX Contest? That way, everyone can work everyone. And you would get extra points for working Scandinavian stations.
It was fun while it lasted. Thanks to all stations for calling in. Log is on LoTW!
