070 Three Day Weekend Contest
Just got done participating in my first contest. At least the first one that I made a real effort to participate in. Not sure how well I did, but I did try.
I learned a few things along the way that I will share with you for better or worse the next few days.
First, logging. From the 070 page I followed the link and downloaded GenLog from W3KM at http://www.qsl.net/w3km/gen_log.htm. Pretty neat program. It took me about 10 minutes to figure it out and get started. I have to say that I am impressed at how he updates it for all of the contests. I logged the contest and then uploaded the ADIF file to the KJ4IZW Scoring Tool http://dwestbrook.net/projects/ham/scorer/ to create the file that I emailed in. Then I imported the ADIF file to hrd and eqsl. Worked well.
I learned a couple of things about my antenna setup also. I will share with you what I did to fix the problems as I go along this week.
