November is traditionally one of the best contesting months of the year. The month starts with the ARRL Sweepstakes – CW, followed 2 weeks later by the ARRL Sweepstakes – Phone. Unfortunately due to work and other obligations I have to skip both sessions of SS this year. So much for winning Low Power, unassisted East Bay this year.
With any luck I will be able to get time off to participate in the CQWW DX Contest, CW starting November 24. It’s one of the biggest and best contests. Right not that is still contingent on my work schedule, but rarely would I be able to put in a full effort during this contest.
The only other contests that interest me to round out the year, the Ten-Meter RTTY Contest on December 2 and the ARRL 10-Meter Contest on December 8-9.
