2012 North American QSO Party January SSB

This past weekend I participated in the NAQSO contest and scored pretty well, even with the antenna issues @ W6TAD's QTH.

Station operation during January SSB 2012 North American QSO Party
I made 149 contacts and scored a bit below 11K points.  The radio I used was a Yaesu FT-950 with DMU-2000, W2IHY 8 Band EQ, Heil PR-781 Mic with boom, N1MM logging software and the Hy-Gain AV-640 antenna.

Overall I was pleased with my performance as I did this context back in 2010 and had 132 contacts and a score of about 8357.

Lessons I learned from this contest is go get a good comfortable I'll be working on that.

As with other contests I have done, it is always a pleasure working and talking with other's on the airwaves.  So if you new to Ham Radio or a seasoned contester, get on the air and make a few friends.



  1. I don't know alot at all about Ham Radios, but I dig your g33k station! LOL!

  2. That is T's station I borrowed this weekend...mine still needs the antenna, so I got my hole dug for it almost and over the next month will get it going up and will be broadcasting live to the world once again as Dr. Evil.
