Worked All Germany (WAG) 2015

Unfortunately, family obligations prevented me from putting in a full effort. So, I just operated about two hours from the DL0BMW club station.

The setup is far from optimal for the WAG contest, e.g.

  • There is only a small vertical for the low bands.
  • The QTH is quite noisy as it is located in an industrial area.
  • The transceiver doesn’t have narrow CW filters.

Nevertheless, it has been great fun to operate. I run most of the time and searched just a little bit. I got called by NA8V, W1UE, W1/DL4NAC, AD4Z, and K1LZ on 80m. It would have been interesting to run on 40m, too. However, that isn’t fun without CW filters. So, I refrained from it. Last QSO has been with ZM2IO on 20m long path with fluttery signal. He run low power and I worked him with 30W drive power since the amplifier wasn’t ready yet and the beam still pointing towards the north. It is always amazing how well he hears even the tiniest signals.

Preliminary Result:

Call:  DK3WE
Class: Single Operator High Power
Rig:   FT1000
Ant:   GAP Voyager (80m, 40m), Tribander

Total Score:  436 * 55 = 23980.
