The contest running this weekend is still in full swing and contacts are being made by the tens of thousands. I don’t contest for any other reason to test the DX capabilities of my current setup, whatever that might be at the time.
Recently, I’ve been putting my brand new Icom IC-7600 through its paces. My antenna is an MFJ Magloop (MFJ-1786) up only 5 feet off the ground.
Here are some of the stations I have contacted so far this weekend.
