2011 IOTA Contest

Hear back from the IOTA contest people a few weeks ago.  I place eleventh again this year.  Not great.  But, no bad too considering the rfi problems I had.  With the RFI problems, and troubleshooting time I only worked approximately ten and half hours out of the twelve hours.  So, overall, I guess I am satisfied with the result.
But, I will do better next yeear!
I should have the rfi issues behind me and have the recieve only antenna working for 40 meters.  This will help me a lot.

Still waiting on the results of the 2011 US Island QSO Party.  They are really running late this year.  aLst year they announced results in January.  Maybe soon.

Until next time
73 and good dx
