After taking 1st Place last year (2008) in the ARRL DX CW Low Power Category, I thought it would be appropriate to hang the plaque in the shack.
Jody, VP5JM and Dave, WJ2O presenting the 2008 plaque.
Three plaques that are currently on display in the "Hamlet". The plaque wording says (top) VP5DF (WJ2O, op), 2008, World Single Operator Low Power CW, Sponsor: Jim Stevens, K4MA (bottom left) VP5A, Multi-Single, North American Phone, 1997, Donor: Nick G Lash, K9KLR,
(right) VP5A (KQ3V, op), World Low Power Phone, 2000.
This year (2009) I must sadly step back as I slid into 2nd place. P40LE (K2LE, op) caught a brief 10 meter opening on Sunday afternoon that never came my way.
