We had great fun while turning the old LA record with a 2mill overhead.
1271 prefixes is due to very hard work at the mult station at all times.
Any mistakes made we blame on the B vitamins consumed during the contest!

Accidentally I found this forum and although CQ WPX CW Contest ended almost 3 months ago, I decided to write a few words about my participation in this contest from Norway.
This year I have bought an old VS-3340 tri-band antenna produced by HIDAKA company (Japan). 3 el. yagi antenna for 10, 15, 20 m and rotary dipole on 40 m band.
The weather this spring was not very favorable in Selbu - most of days before contest were cold and rainy. But after a few days of hard work, this antenna has been mounted, adjusted and raised to approx. 10 meters over the ground (thanks to my son Tomas for help). Antenna has no rotor and was rotated manually. For 80 m band I've built a dipole antenna, which also could be called "Inverted Vee" because the ends of the dipole was only 5 meters above ground.

I've used ELECRAFT K2 transceiver, which weighs only 1.7 kg and fits freely into my traveling backpack. This is especially important when traveling by plane.
I work out all the 36 hours. Conditions were good, I was happy to catch an excellent openings on 20 and 15 m band, especially to NA. Here's the result:
