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 Logger.
I hope to work more contests with my new Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 transceivers. Using the Flex 1500 was 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 or Icom 7610.
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.
