Look what just arrived in the post! Apparently I won a section of the CQWW WPX contest. As far as I can recall, I hardly put two hours into that contest and my very limited participation was just for a bit of fun on CW.
It just demonstrates how easy it is to win a section of a contest in Ireland. There are few dedicated contesters in this country, so the chances are that if you enter a low power single band category you will win it. My score was hardly phenomenal. I see I was only 20th in Europe in that section, which puts a bit of perspective on it.
A pleasant surprise, but this one will be going in the draw with the rest!!
