ARRLDXSSB 2017 "Tri-band" Contest

Switched off the ARRL DX SSB contest, saying that the propagation conditions for Europeans were not the best is definitely an understatement. We have all been affected for that situation, so we went up racing mostly using the inevitable 20meter, 40meter and  80meter band.

 

A contest thus practically "tri-band", we have't produced any QSOs on 10m and on 15m in very few, only 19, even the so-called Top Band has not been at the level of recent years, at least for us, but we know that we suffer also the 20Khz bandwidth available in our country. However it was an opportunity to test our new home made 40m beam.
