Lessons from WAE

I’ve been working steadily to get the equipment and antenna needed for a busy fall contest season.  This weekend I participated in the WAE contest.  I made some observations that I think will help future efforts

  • I like the stacked monitors, one atop each other versus monitors side by side
  • Always have extra amplifier fuses and backup tubes
  • Use the N1MM available mults and Qs window.  I like it much, much better than using just the bandmap
  • Do more on 80m and 15m.  I have easy, in-expensive solutions for 15m – but for 80m?  My plan is an inverted-L –  we’ll see.
