ARRL 160M pre- and post-contest

Written by admin On December - 8 - 2017 Comments Off on ARRL 160M pre- and post-contest

As we float across the bottom of solar cycle 24, lower sunspot counts — in our case, zero sunspots — mean the lower bands such as 80M and 160M are in good shape for DX.

The Zone Zero podcast featured two episodes touching the 2017 ARRL 160M contest. See how I thought I would do in the contest, then listen to how I actually did.
