Now we’d like to show one of messages from YCP participants at WPX SSB on this March.

YCP参加者(3月のWPX SSB)から送られてきたメッセージのひとつをご紹介しましょう。

It was the first time for me to participate in a worldwide contest.

I operated from the evening of 25th (JST), and I was the only 50W operator in that time. Thus I had quite a few difficulties while operating, but I was impressed when I succeed to make the first QSO with a station in Asiatic Russia by adjusting the direction of the Yagi antenna. I do have an experience of QSO with stations of HL or DU on 7MHz SSB from my school’s station, but my joy of receiving a RS report as a part of contest was exceptional.

運用したのは日曜の夕方以降で,その時に運用しているオペレーターの中では唯一の3アマでした.50W出力のために呼んでもコールを取ってもらえず,苦労する場面も多かったですが,八木アンテナの向きを調節してAsiatic Russiaの局に初めて取ってもらえた時はやはり感動しました.かつて学校の無線部で7MHz SSBで運用していた時にHLやDUとQSOしたことはありましたが,やはりコンテストということでレポートが返ってきた時の喜びは格別でした.
