Think you can’t contest because you don’t have room for a beam? Maybe you’re limited to a vertical or low dipole. Just because you’re not running a kilowatt is no reason not to contest.
Checkout the excellent article on contesting for the peashooter contester in the February 2016 newsletter of the Northern California Contest Club. Lots of tips on how you too can win some wallpaper with a minimal station.
As someone who has edited club newsletters before I can say with some authority that this is a pretty nice newsletter that any club would be proud to publish. Nice work guys.
Speaking of nice work I just checked my scores for the 50th running of the California QSO Party last Oct. 3-4. Seems I won my class of single-operator limited in Ontario and number five in Canada. Thanks NCCC.
