CQ WW CW 2013

Om ca. 14 dager er det tid for årets største CW-fest, CQ WW CW! Tusenvis av CW-gærninger kommer på lufta samtidig, men du kan selv velge ditt aktivitetsnivå. Folk flest kjører faktisk ikke 48 timer i strekk. Med den nye overleggskategorien “Classic” kan gjøre det litt mer interessant for dere som f.eks. ikke kan kjøre hele helgen men likevel vil kjøre litt seriøst. Med overlegg “Classic” kan du kjøre i 24 timer med en radio, uten cluster. Altså ikke noe 2 radio opplegg lov her. Når de 24 timene er oppbrukt kan du, hvis du vil, fortsette å kjøre, men du får ikke flere poeng. Les reglene nøye! http://cqww.com/rules.htm På NG3K.com finner du en liste over annonserte DX-operasjoner som skal være igang under CQ WW CW. Husk at det viktigste er å ha det gøy. Vi høres! 73 Bjørn LB1GB(LN8W i CQ WW CW 2013 48 timer SO2R ;-))...

After reading on the different E-mail groups and reflectors I was eager to try it out. 2Tone was originally made for N1MM logger but can now also be used with Writelog which is the contest logger I prefer on RTTY. In my setup for the SCC I was using MMTTY in my main RTTY window and two clone windows for receive only with the 2Tone decoder using the normal and flutter profile . That means I have three decoder windows for each radio on my desktop(I am running SO2R). During the contest it was easy to see that 2Tone beats MMTTY on weak signals and also when I had QRM from nearby stations. There were several times when I only had garbage in the MMTTY window no matter what profile I tried and a perfect copy in one or...
