Here are some of the contest awards or certificates I received from various contests over the years. Operating in South Dakota sometimes all I need are a hundred contacts (sometimes less) to place and get an award. Most of these are from years ago when I was using a nice Kenwood TS-570DG. I really enjoyed using that radio contesting. Everything from SSB to RTTY, it was an exceptional radio. For digital work I used a signalink USB. The software I normally use is N1MM Log.

I hope to work more contests with my new Icom 7300 transceiver. Using the Flex 1500 is fine for QRP CW contests, but for phone contesting it’s too hard in a pileup and I don’t have the patience. So please look for me in upcoming contests using the Icom 7300.

Here’s a short clip using the Flex 1500 in a CW contest. Using search and pounce is easy.


See my YouTube channel for more clips. If you need a South Dakota contact confirmed, I always upload to HRD Log, eQSL and LOTW. I can also send you a QSL card.
