CQWW SSB Contest 2011

We decided to activate the MWA club call W0AA as a multi-operator effort with myself, Jim - K0XV, and Jim's son Jason.
With only one 10-15-20 meter antenna, this was a low key fun event, mostly to let Jason enjoy some time behind the microphone.
This was a part time effort with multiple operators, and in a little over 22 hours we managed over 1500 QSO's with over 900 contacts on 10M alone. The final score was just over 2.2M point

IARU Contest 2008

In 2008, Minnesota Wireless Association was granted the privilege of operating the IARU Secretariat Club station call of NU1AW/0. 
My station was given 20M SSB and 10M SSB assignments. Calvin - K0DXC joined me in activating the call this year, and Cal did 95% of the operating. As 10M SSB did not really open up, we concentrated on 20M SSB.
In just a little under 13 hours of operating, we managed 1070 QSO's, and over 50 ITU Zone multipliers to add to the total NU1AW/0 score. Cal was able to sustain a run rate close to 100 per hour. The first 5 hours of the contest was clipping along at approximately 125 QSO/s per hour. Very impressive!

Pictured (from left to right) are Dennis KF0QR, Dave - K0IEA, Harold - N0ACH, and Jim - K0JUH. Including myself, this group comprises over 150 years of operating experience, all enjoying watching Cal running the 20M position.

CQ WPX Contest 2009

I seldom operate the CW CQ WPX event as it usually falls on Memorial day. Foster - N3KCJ was in town and looking for a station to operate, so we decided to do a multi-single effort.
It was enjoyable to meet Foster for the first time, and be able to accommodate his wishes to operate this event.

27 hours of operating netted 1048 QSO's, and a score of 1,321,294.
