    OK.
    This is what I have for contacts:
    WDX-853 Mark Brisbane Australia (VKrules)
    2 x contacts (with a 3x multipler) = 6



    WDX-2222 San Francisco (tba02)
    2 x contacts (1 for 3x and 1 for 2x) = 5

    Ole Grampa WDX 39zero (Marconi)
    3 x contacts ( with 1 for 2x multiplier) = 4

    WDX-208 Chuck San Francisco Base (firerunner)
    2 x contacts (1 for x3) = 4

    WDX704 Rick West Virginia (Big Daddy)
    1 x contact = 1

    Is the above correct??

    Shear contacts without any multiples would be ....we all know. ;) Marconi but with multipliers it works out to be VKrules.

    One of WDX-390's was a portable contact (me), so he should get that multiplier as I was portable at that time, even if it doesn't change the outcome.

    Congrats VK! Until next time (yarrrg!)

    OK, noted. I'll change it once there is more confirmations.

    Thanks Guys! Despite poor conditions ( much worse than last comp) there was still a lot of contacts to be made, just not many WDX no . How do we get more members involved ?Not to many more chances before the band goes dead,. PS. 6 elements on a 10 meter boom and a bhi audio dsp unit helped a lot.

    Congrats VK!!!(y)
    I was in and out all weekend, but my a99 didn't fair too well. made a few contacts, but no wdx members. I'm going to string up my dipole, or come up with something different for the next contest. Was still fun though:)

    Way to go VKrules.

    I think you were too early for old Grampa or I was on 37 when you were on 39.

    I had plenty of DX on Saturday and the North East and Europe were early and the West dominated much of the day. The band stretched out Sunday, and it was poor, sometimes nothing but noise.

    Congrats VKRULES.

    Saturday was South of the Border Disorder here in FL.

    By time propagation favored Westward I was able to make a few contacts into West coast but no WDX members, not for lack of trying ( thanks firerunner we gave it a good try).

    Had many Dx contacts ask about the contest ( amazing how calling CQ contest on 11 meters gets people's curiosity interested).

    I explained about the site and how the site holds 11 meter DX contests all for fun, SO maybe in the future there will be more members and more ops to make contacts.

    Congrats again old man.(y)

    Ratso, I don't really understand the last part of your comment. Im pretty sure the people listed all used legal power, unless 12 watts ssb is not legal.
