SSB Sprint

This was my first contest with my new Flex 6300.  Wow, what a nice receiver!  Contesting with brick wall filters, a panadapter, and smooth sounding audio makes a SSB contest fun. One of my grandsons stayed over night so I didn't get on until the second hour.  It was great to hear so many Al's and Alan's out there in honor of KO7X.  I can't wait until the SO2R box is available.

By the way, the Flex Control was well worth the added cost.  I would recommend it to anyone thinking of getting a 6000 series radio.  

80   34 Q's    8 Sec
40   43 Q's  13 Sec
20   31 Q's  20 Sec

Total  108 Q's  41 Sec  for 4,428 points  and a lot of fun.

    I concur. This was my first sprint effort and it is very rare that I do ssb testing, however, I had a blast with my 6300. I was limited to 100w and a multiband dipole @ 35 , but the HD panadapter  is an excellent tool to scan the band at a glance to pick out the strong sigs. In addition, 80m and 40 m are so quiet via the 6000 series receiver they are a blast to use. Now only if other stations could hear me as well as I hear them, but better antennas and an amp would go a long way in helping with that.

     Band     QSOs     Pts  Sec
       3.5        18           18    0
         7         26           26    8
        14        68           68   37
     Total      112        112   45
    Score: 5,040
    1 Mult = 2.5 Q's
