3 Kids aged 14-18 --- remeber when the rest of us were that young and on HF. Oh, and these kids do CW as well. Very good CW.

Awesome work guys!

Three kids under 18 years old set a new USA M/S record in NEQP before log checking this weekend. Notice the breakdown, they made twice as many CW q's over SSB all powered by Flex Radio and the custom RHR software. The next generation of contesters is here!

Comments:   [email]   2021-05-03 01:13:31Big shout out to Ray W2RE for the use of the giant W1/Jonesport contest station! The station is really designed for working EU but as we can see it does just fine domestic too!




We started as a team of 3 kids, AA4LS (14), KC1KUG (15), And W4IPC (18) but unfortunately Brayden KC1KUG went on vacation and the internet status was not all he thought it would be and as such he was not even able to load web browsers. This meant he was pretty much out of the game... He did manage to get enough bandwidth to make one single contact in the contest by remoting into my computer.

Special thanks to Brayden KC1KUG for getting us the K1M callsign even though he unfortunately didn't get to use it much.

As there were really only 2 operators, we didn't expect much of a score in the contest, but at about 11pm Saturday, Charles and I realized we may actually stand a chance.

Even though we did not expect much, it looks like this is a new record for M/S, just barely passing the record set by the NN1C team last year. We are hopeful but we are not sure if the record will make it past log checking.

Congrats to NE1QP on an amazing effort, it was a fun race on the scoreboard! It was only until the last few hours when we were able to surpass them and even then it was extremely close.

73 all and see you next year!

-Connor, W4IPC on behalf of the K1M team
