Conditions were odd during the first part of the CQWW contest this past weekend. Sadly nothing excessively long distance was heard but that didn’t stop some nice and quite odd contacts from Budapest due to distance. I guess the best of the super short contacts were 251ATHQ in Albania which was 428 miles or 593 kilometers.
Otherwise similar contacts like last year with an incredible number of Italian stations in the log. Plus Germany, Holland, UK to name a few. Station was more compact this year and add this to conditions the log was over 30 less than the first part last year but the fun is in the contacts. Now the long wait starts to part II.
Most annoying aspect is telling your callsign to someone who says your 59 in the log! But asks multiple times who you are…
