Story

Also this year I spent several hours during both days in cqww cw. I have always same configuration as previous years. Browsed previous contest results, where I usually claimed 300–450 QSO, I got idea try to break 500 QSO mark this year.

Because of antenna,I could be QRV 40–10M. Unfortunatelly conditions on 15 and 10M was not excellent, so I focused to 40 and 20M. I did not care about multipliers noe QSO point value, I worked everyone I heard. First day after 10 hours finished with 333 QSO. It looked like I can reach my goal. I woke up earlier on Sunday and worked several DXes on 40M. I remember I heard HC8GR called cq without any pileup. So, I called him and during very short waiting, I was thinking if I get reply and I suddenly got frisson, after next short moment added QSO to the log :) In the afternoon I reached 444 and then 500 QSO.. My father challenging me to 555, so finally I finished with 600 QSO. Switched radio off and left shack. What next? 666?

I did not use dx cluster. Almost all contacts made in S&P. I was adding all stations, worked or new, to bandmap manually. I like this method very much, than flood bandmap with dx spots which most of them are unreachable and useless to me.. If anyone do not send his callsign for longer time, I put to band map “?” or just number of zone and come back try my luck after while again..
