I would like to thank all who participated in the 2023 Linc Cundall Memorial event. We had a sizeable increase in participation this year and great conditions on 40 meters. We also had quite a few toward the top of the leader board. Congratulations to Gerry, W1ZB for taking the beautiful plaque this year with a score of 396 with Brian K9VKY and last year’s winner Will W1TS very close behind. Honorable mention goes to Mike KB0HXL & Harold KB0ROB the only stations that had contacts on all bands plus contacts on both CW & AM. I also must include John N2BE who had a great score using 200 milliwatts again this year, his miles per watt was truly outstanding!!
We only had four 20-meter contacts and eleven AM contacts. 258 contacts were made on 40 and 16 contacts on 160 meters. The usual winner for number of contacts, 80 meters, had a total of 190 contacts. Total contacts made during the event was 468 and I feel that is outstanding and definitely has the L.C. event going in the right direction.
20 meters was added last year in hopes of giving more opportunities to our AWA members in the West and Midwest. Several said they listened and looked for participants but with no luck. For next year’s event, we are adding suggested times along with suggested frequencies allowing those in the Midwest and West to make contacts with those of us in the East. The Suggested times are 18:00Z (2PM EST) & 20:00Z (4PM EST) and the suggested frequencies are 14036 CW & 14295 AM + or – QRM (Thursday afternoon & Sunday Afternoon). I will be on 20 CW at those times with a 10 element Log Periodic up 60 feet pointed west from my mountain top location. Let’s have a lot of contacts from our friends out West this year.
Unfortunately, I was out of town during the entire contest this year but looking forward to L.C. 2024.
