The certificate finally arrived for the 2010 IARU HF Championships. I got word via QST in March that I’d placed 8th in North America Region 7 in the Single Operator QRP CW category. That was a nice accomplishment.

I enjoy this contest a great deal with the 24 hour format. That gives me some time for chores and seeing my family on a weekend. This year’s was even more fun as I moved up to the Low Power category with 100 watts, people even answered me in my intensive search and pounce effort. In 2012 I need to get into the running mode and perhaps even try So2V with a second receiver in the K3. That will take an investment. We’ll see what happens.

I hope you’ve been able to compete in the IARU. Perhaps I’ve even worked you. Let me know.
