VC2T in the CQ WW SSB Contest 2012
Written by Victor Androsov   
Gilles, VE2TZT

Très agréable WE en effet à VE2TZT où nous opérions sous VC2T.

Cela m’a rappelé mes débuts dans le contest il y a une dizaine d’années où j’avais eu la chance d’opérer plusieurs fois en multi-single à TM2Y pour le WPX et le CQWW CW. L’ambiance 48h à tout oublier et à ne penser que radio avec du monde qui partage la même passion est vraiment unique. Il n’y a pas meilleure façon de vivre un contest : nous devenons le contest.

Cela fait donc plusieurs années que je songe à reproduire cela en organisant un multi op. Les années passent et chaque fois je reportais car la station n’était pas prête alors j’ai décidé de faire le contraire : Lancer l’invitation et ensuite courir pour réussir à être prêt à temps.

As you can have seen I was not mush present on the CGQ site those last weeks. Following is a part of the reasons:

At last, during the transition between the two years, I have decided to allow some time to the learning and the setup of a complete electronic design and realisation process. It includes PCB design software, a modern personal PCB etching process and metal box making.


-For PCB design, I have chosen KIKAD because it is free and not too complex as for example ORCAD can be. With KIKAD, it is easy and fast to do add one’s own components for schematic as well as for routing. The rules for the size of vias and tracks are easy to modify.

It is the perfect tool for the needs of the average circuit designer that I am.

Zone 40 interviews Zone 2

After I worked VE2XAA/2 for my Zone #39 on 160 meters for the WAZ160 Award, I contacted Alex to get some background on his operation, and why Zone 2 , the Zone nearest to Zone 40 is so incredibly rare, so close and yet so far...

Our discussion is reproduced below. (photos by VE2XAA/2).

hi Alex,I was telling a friend about the difficulty I had in getting a QSO from that area and that you were the only person going there once a year for two days.

No, Thor, I was not the only person who activated Zone 2 in the CQ WW Contests. As a matter of fact, my friend Yuri VE2IM (VE3DZ) goes there since 1999 and has already 90,000 QSO in his Zone 2 LOG. Another friend of mine, Victor VA2WDQ, operated as VE2EKA from Zone 2, and a group of Americans come to Zone 2 every year for the last 4-5 years to operate as VE2DXY, but only in SSB part of the CQ WW. The good news is that very active CW and DX operator Steve, VE2TKH moved recently to Sept-Iles, and is very active operating from VE2CSI club station. As for me, I try to go there every year, this time I was active only for 7 days - from November 23rd till November 29th, 2010.
