Mid Week Contesting - W6SX
February 2014
Sometimes can't get enough contesting on the weekends? Or sometimes can't get on on the weekends at all. Or want to practice contest skills in a low-stress environment?

Midweek contesting to the rescue.

Every Thursday night is the half-hour NS or NCCC Sprint. Sprints—love 'em or hate 'em. But, they are a great way to improve your skills. Half-hour doses make them very tolerable even if you are in the hate category. Give the NS a try—you'll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you get the hang of it and how quickly your skills improve.

Every Wednesday of the month are the CWops Tests. Three separate one-hour sessions starting at 1300Z, 1900Z, and 0300Z. CW fans, we named the CWops Test a test, not a contest. CWTs offer something for everyone. You can get on and make a few contacts with fellow CW enthusiasts. You can get on and extend a friendly welcome to hams trying a CWT for the first time.     more
The Papa-3 Contest Club ED1R - Jesus Marquez EC1KR
February 2014
ED1R was founded in the summer of 2010. It is located in central Spain, in a small village of around 500 people in the province of Avila, about 100km from Madrid, 167km from the Portuguese border and 311km from the Atlantic ocean, towards North America. The village is around 1100m (about 3600ft) asl, on flat land and good takeoff towards North America.

The location is a small plot of land belonging to EC1KR’s father, in amongst a vegetable garden. Space is limited, around 300m². We started by planning 4 towers, and after doing the welding work for installing rotators and masts, installed them (one 23m high tower, one 16m high, and two 12m high). We then installed our first antennas, a 2 element M² yagi for 40m, 4 element monoband DXBEAMS for 20 and 15, and a 5 element DXBEAM for 10.

We also put in a lot of work to the shack. Currently we have a spacious four position operating area, sleeping space for 5, a shower and toilet, and a small work area.    more
