I participated in the 2020 FT Roundup ham radio contest. This was my first time participating in a ham radio contest. The results can be found here.
I placed 21st out of 33 in California. I placed 455 out of 927 worldwide in the single operator category. For my first attempt at this, with my extremely meager compromised antenna setup and not operating for the entire contest period, I think I did pretty well.
One interesting side-effect of participating in this contest is that I burnt myself out…I haven’t powered on my HF radio since the contest.
