IARU HF World Championship Contest

The IARU HF World Championship Contest is done. I worked several stations, giving some points away. Unfortunately the conditions were rather poor. Of course a lot of many high power stations. Most connections I made with SSB. There are also arguments on the amateur bands. Listen to this example.


  1. Just more SSB contest cat-fighting, Paul. 73 Dick

  2. Hi Dick, on a certain moment I stopped recording, but he was still going on for a while. Hi. 73 Paul

  3. Hi Paul, I too was in the contest and also found conditions not so great. Yes the high power stations can make things more of challenge for a QRP station like mine.

  4. Hi Mike, absolutely, they want your call in their contest logbook. 73 Paul

  5. Oh No! He again...
    No Contest Catfight, this is the Don Quichotte of amateur radio I believe...

    I spend some time in the contest too but found some nice openings. Worked China and Mogolia for the 1st time and also Hong kong in the log.

    73, Kees

    The right filter works wonders, but without them, you might as well learn to live with it. Cat fight sums it up. Hihi

    Hello Paul,

    Somehow, your latest comment on my blog was deleted. I think it has something to do with my g-mail account. It's happened before so sorry your original entry isn't there but I've typed a response about my "secret". I really don't have a can delete this entry if you choose.


  8. Hi John, I read your answer. Hi, many years ago, another QTH and I did have a big building very near to me, but one way or the other it seems like that my signals were reflected by it. Sometimes it happens that comments are gone. Last week I discovered many unpublished comments in my Blogger account, they were seen as spam. But they were not. Never looked before under the tab comments. Now I will. 73 Paul


Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. 73 Paul
