I recently received my final results for the 2013 CQ Worldwide WPX SSB Contest and was presently surprised. With a final score of 1,883,448, I won the Rookie overlay category in North America and Finished #2 in the World in this category. I was also #2 in the Single Operator High Power Assisted category in the United States Call Area 1.
I do not have much experience as a contest operator. The 2013 CQ Worldwide WPX SSB Contest was one of my first serious efforts in a major contest and I am very pleased with the results of my efforts. I used a good bit of recently added equipment and software in this contest (see related post on this blog) and the investments in these areas seemed to pay off nicely. I am very much looking forward to being part of this contest again in 2014.
