I'm pleased to say N1AW received a certificate from the ARRL for my score in the November 2009 ARRL Sweepstakes contest: First Place Single Operator QRP CW in the Western Massachusetts section.
This makes it two years in a row. Of course it's also two years in a row that I seem to have been the only operator in the WMA section to submit a log in the QRP class for the cw weekend. But I did make a total of 50 QSOs with a multiplier of 33, in 6 hours of operation. The rig for these efforts was an HW-8, 2 watts output at best.
Wonder if anyone else has come across this. I just finished assy of my new NEScaf and all works gangbusters with my regen. Only problem is I'm getting RF into the receiver from what I can only think is harmonics from the clock. Other than putting it in a metal case, does anyone have other ideas to solve this ? I'm using a 9V battery as B+ so it's definitely not mains borne. Thanks, Paul zs2oe
