JIDX 2011 Contest...

Today I received a nice certificate from the Japan International DX Contest group for my 2011 participation in their annual contest.

I was #1 in California, and #4 in North America in the All Band Low Power classification.

Back in the 1990's I won #1 North America for several consecutive years. But that was with a great antenna and high power (1500 watts). In those  contests I received a very nice brass and wood plaque. Now I compete with an antenna in a poor location and only 100 watts.
