I am housebound for a couple of days so I set my own Challenge – to make the necessary contacts on the first day of the month. Conditions were awful but in the course of several operating sessions during the day I managed to complete the Challenge at 1955Z by working IK1WEG/8 on 7 MHz for the letter ‘I’. In all I worked 15 stations, 2 on 10 MHz and the rest spread between 7 and 14 MHz. It shows how bad condx were when I struggled to work an Italian station. Several I called earlier in the day could not get my call whereas usually there are many to be heard at S9 in Plymouth.
Power 5 watts to a doublet or 15 mtr long sloping end fed wire with a remote Smartuner.

I enjoyed this Challenge. I haven’t been on the air for a few months and it was a pleasure to get back to QRP and especially the European Challenge. I was quite active the first week of August, hence I achieved the Challenge in 8 days. Good propagation between my QTH (Massachusetts) and Europe, as is often the case, thankfully. The bulk of my QSOs were with Eastern Europe. Somehow I must have a direct path to that area! Anyway I’m not complaining.
72 all, Rick.

Thanks for the challenge.
Best 73. Lo. F5MNK.

As always is this challenge giving a good reason to activate more to get a good result.

This is the first time I partecipate to the challenge: it’s more difficult to understand the mechanics of the challenge and the ciontact I can use, and then just to fill the log, as the Eu acrivity Day let me have 30 more QSO over the few I had in first day of months when I did not know yet anything about challenge and about the NAQCC….hi
I hope to be in next challenges and thanks for this opportunity to stay in Radio and use our Rigs

This is the longest it’s taken in a while now to complete one of the European Chapter challenges – the 20th of the month. Mainly because signals from Europe have been lacking in the usual time I get on the bands which is in the 0000Z hour. The past few days now I’ve been trying around 2000-2100Z and found Europe to be pretty good then allowing me to get the final 7, N, R I needed to finish up. I would have been embarrassed to not finish this one since the Formula 1 related challenge was my suggestion. Thanks to all the 14 European stations I worked to finally master this challenge. Thanks also to Matt and Ton for running our NAQCC European Chapter challenges so successfully. I look forward each month to the next one.

Nice challenge and all on warc bands .Every day one qso was the other challenge and it was possible . I think I need a better antenna on 12 m so maybe a simpel vertical in the backyard. My trx Yaesu FT 817 Power : < 5w Ant Hy Endfet home made
