Propagation for the 2017 New England QSO Party was pretty good, much better than the previous year!   We received a total of  633 logs, up 32%.   There were 25 logs from DX stations, 21 from Canada, 414 from USA stations, and 177 from New England. The combined logs had 75,278 valid QSOs recorded!   

There were 684 different New England stations reported from all 67 New England counties. Logs showed that 136 stations were on from Connecticut, Massachusetts had 216, Maine 106, New Hampshire 119, Rhode Island 57, and Vermont 50. The toughest counties to work were Addison VT (9 QSOs), Orange VT (15), Washington VT (16), Lincoln ME (25) and Hancock ME (28).  Paul/N4PN, was able to work at least one station in each county.   Not far behind were Bob/WA1FCN with 63 counties, Frank/WA2VYA and Barry/N2BJ with 62, and Bob/WN1GIV with 61.


The good news during the 2017 NEQP is that the sun was pretty quiet, with no major flares or solar storm events.  There is a positive outcome with sunspots on the decline!  On the other hand, QSOs were few and far between on 15m and nearly impossible on 10m.

Mobile activity was a little muted this time, but two serious efforts covered a lot of ground.  We’re working to generate some additional activity in 2018.  

Jay/W1UJ was at the controls of NZ1U/m and made QSOs from 35 counties, with 867 QSOs for 110k points – wow! That’s the most counties a single operator mobile has ever operated from in the NEQP.

NZ1U/m (W1UJ)

What a super fun radio weekend in the great (still showing some) white North! Congrats to the top notch NEQP/m effort of the WA1Z team.

We had very low amount of time for implementation, or what we did have for time may not have been used correctly..

The ‘Contest Caddy’ used for 2012, 14, 15, and 16’s NEQP MultiOp Mobile efforts was going to take a break this year in favor of the brand-new 2017 Chevy Equinox SUV, or, the Blue-Ox.  Our 5th year, cool!   A Class 2 trailer hitch was procured and installed as the primary antenna mount along with a Harbor-Freight 500# steel Hitch mounted luggage rack.

Using the luggage rack to mount both the Hustler mast/resonator and the Hi-Sierra motor-tuned antenna.  Right in the middle was an official WRTC-2014 Honda 2KW Generator used by a top 10 team! 

Sooooo… we tried High Power.  Using a Tokyo Hy-Power SS KW amplifier and having the Hustler ‘Super’ resonators picked up recently we hit the road….

One would think that tons of time is necessary to engineer an effort like QRO mobile radio contest operating, but you may be mistaken! We tested the antennas around 17Z, or ~3 hours before the start!  But the road plan had us -way- North for the start and much ground to cover. We hit the road. It worked!

It was not trouble free. (SHOCKER!) The biggest issue was that the operator could not touch the ‘touch pad’ mouse on the laptop while transmitting or the laptop would lose comms and CW to the K3… Also, the sent CW must have sounded horrible as we could not get the CW weight to work through the serial port CW on the K3 it was with HP or LP didn’t make a difference- sending a bit slower helped.  The amp was not used much, if there was a 5-cq or so lull, turn drive down to 20w and throw amp in. It would run about 400w with comfort, until nearing the end and we activated Suffolk MA, we were @900w comfortably.  That generator was working very hard! Called CQ on SSB even 1 answer….. Everything held quite nicely. (DO NOT touch that mouse pad!)

Used N1MM+ Logger to send CW through the USB serial port- this was only on Saturday, on Sunday, the decision was made to introduce a WinKeyer which was a good move. Still cannot touch the mouse-pad when TX’n or the Rig and the Winkeyer would drop….

One of the goals was to be home Saturday night.  The hub of the Barnstormers is NE CT and we wanted to operate North… starting and ending in the well-covered WORMA.  Another goal was to cover the ‘least covered’ counties of 2016.  The missed/forgotten factor was that Team WA1Z wasn’t there in ’16, and their counties were open in 2016, but they are back in it for ’17.  On Saturday night after many requests for SUFMA  we knew there was coverage in the north ME counties and we were heading to SUFMA since it seems there may have not been activity there with many asking about it again on Sunday morning.

N1WK =  “It’s not the (Contest) Caddy” in reference to the Blue Ox. Trade offs for superior luxury, powerful engine… etc… etc… is good gas mileage and lots of cabin room….   The Caddy will likely be re-commissioned in future efforts!  Just need a trailer hitch.  It seems that a couple-hundred horsepower and luxury seats and operating position is worth the ~5 MPG sacrifice….

For Saturday the goal was to catch COONH FRAVT GRAVT.  GRAVT is way up there, and we went to the top NW corner of it and headed South right through GRAVT and making it through while it was still daylight out.

Sunday was the same we looked at least covered counties, but changed things a bit to cover the requested SUFMA.

Another learning experience and many mental notes that are likely to be forgotten next year, but we look forward to it and it is a considerable amount of fun. More band changes.. Tightening up complete antenna/coax systems…etc… the normal things… same as last year….

Rock star award to N1WK for powering through with the driving getting us home safely. Saturday 707 miles Sunday 509 miles Average speed 54.3 MPH 34.0 MPG Best 50 mile run Average fuel economy 26.6 MPG

Thanks to The Barnstormer fixed team of NB1U and NR1X, while putting in their own significant NEQP efforts and tracking the NZ1U/m team and notifying the masses where we were. Also to the Cap’n KB1H(sk) for getting us all together.

Thanks to all of the ‘Regulars’ that follow the /m’s through the counties, you guys make it worth it for everyone.  A few pics and vids here; http://w1uj.net/NEQP-2017/

The Barnstormers

Bob/WA1Z/m operated with Kurt/W6PH and Bill/K1GQ in a multi-single mobile effort, making 961 QSOs for 126k points.  They would have had an even bigger total but lost an estimated 150+ of QSOs due to computer problems..  

WA1Z/m (+W6PH K1GQ)

Thanks to everyone who followed us around this weekend! After a one year hiatus (my wife and I had an opportunity to do a multi-day hike in the Grand Canyon at this time last year that killed NEQP operations), W6PH and I hit the road again for the fifth time.  This year, K1GQ joined the team making the operation a Multi-Single.  As usual, Kurt did all of the driving while Bill and I alternated operating counties.

Congratulations to the NZ1U Barnstormers Mobile team!!! What an incredible job putting together a brand new kind of operation! It’s always fun to try something new in a contest.

Station: 2008 Honda CRV Elecraft K3, 100 watts, powered from car battery Bill and I logged separately on non-networked computers. Two Hustler MO-2 54-inch masts mounted on hatchback door secured by a homebrew roof rack harness   One Hustler MO-4 22-inch mast mounted on mag mount, guyed to roof rack just to add a little more security.  Hustler RM-model resonators and DX Engineering Capacity Hats for 80 through 15 Meters.

This year, we set up a K3 on a small homebrew desk in the middle of the backseat.  Bill and I sat on either side of it.  We each brought our own WinKeyer and, through a Y-adapter, connected both to the K3, so that we each could transmit without having to fuss with changing cables. This made for seamless county transitions, but also made it really easy for us to accidentally hit F-keys when the _other_ guy was doing the operating.  Oops.

Mobile Contesting was a new experience for Bill.  My goal was to make sure he operated as much or as little as he wanted.  And for much of the weekend, I kept under-estimating which counties would have better rate than others and was desperately trying to line up alternating counties so Bill could experience some fun county changes.  In general, I think I oversold Bill on how “exciting” county changes were going to be.  I kept reminiscing about fun, 30-minute-long high rates from rare Maine counties from yesteryear that never materialized this weekend.  Instead, we usually got 3 minutes of mayhem working the same 12-15 folks, then wore-out the F1 key until the next county change. Oh well.

Best DX was to JA on 20.  And it was a real treat having XO1X (thanks Gerry!) call in from YT.   Somehow, we missed UT and WY (not enough S&Ping in 7QP) and SD.
Bob WA1Z

Thanks to all of the mobiles!

Special Awards

The top USA (non-New England) single operator winner: The Framingham Amateur Radio Association has donated a Lobster dinner for two from Legal Seafood of Boston to the USA single operator (non-New England) winner.  

For 2017 the winner was Paul Newberry, N4PN!

Log checking

The log checking process found some mistakes, here and there. There were 633 logs overall, a huge 32% increase over 2016, with 469 in electronic format (99%) and only 7 on paper.    The best operators have error rates in <3% range. For non-New England stations, cross checking was possible on 22,742 of the 25,883 QSOs reported (87.9%).  For New England stations, cross checking was possible on 28,440 of the 53,831 QSOs reported (52.8%).  

Logging Software

N1MM introduced N1MM Logger+ and more than half of their users switched to the new version, plus a few additional users. N3FJP and Writelog software were still next in the list with another 20 others, none exceeding ten users.  Thanks to WA7BNM for adding the NEQP to his list of supported contests
