Love getting this sort of mail from the Editors of CQ Magazine.
And I got the First Place QRP SSB Single Op Assisted All Band North America certificate as well. (This put me 13th in the world.)
I’m already making strategic plans for contesting this season.
The easy way to make more points when running QRP is to operate during contest weekends when there are great conditions. This is not always possible 🙂
The next secret is to create an operating schedule as there’s no way anyone my age can operate for 48 hours without some sleep (actually lots of sleep) so best pick your times and maximize your points.
Also this year, I’ve committed to the contesting group here in Oakville to learn N1MM (I love Writelog but it appears I’m now a minority of one.) and incorporate the MMTTY RTTY software and the contest memory keyer.
