OK-OM DX Contest 2011 Results

I participated in the OK-OM CW contest last autumn 2011. My class was All Bands Low (100W) power. Now I got the results. According to the result table, I was nr. 20 in Europe. There were almost 200 contestants in my class. I had 396 verified QSOs to OK/OM in the contest.

Actually, I found some glory about this result: I was best of north Europe :)

I worked the contest with my Kenwood TS-850S, using an off-center dipole. The antenna choice was easy: since all QSOs were to Chech/Slovakia, there was no need for DX antennas. One antenna and and automatic antenna tuner did the band-switching job perfectly.

I checked the High Power Class result table, and on that my position would have been 13th in Europe. Obviously there is no need for high power in Europe-internal contests :)
