The big buzz in the Five Cities is the 'event' of the RadioSport season and 2012 CQ World Wide DX SSB is fast approaching. I'm looking forward to chasing and logging DX stations through day light hours then taking the evening as a break. This is my first foray into the wireless world of single sideband operation and I'm jazzed about the idea of connecting with other operators using this medium of communications.
My goal is have a lot of ham radio fun, log as many countries as possible on three bands (10, 15, and 20m), and log as many CQ zones as possible on the same three bands.
On the other hand, I'd like to keep in mind those who are going to great lengths from DXpeditioneers to local field day like operations to those low power, low profile stations using wire antenna systems in less than theoretical conditions.
The thrill is not gone instead through the weekend give consideration to those who pioneered wireless technology. I'd recommend taking a moment and consider computer driven logging, the capability of using a tri-band antenna on three bands simultaneously, the game changing spotting networks, or that voice memory keyer.
I'm looking forward to RadioSport's big event this weekend.
