Over Half a Sweep

Last November, operating CW QRP, VE3DTI hoped to have managed “over half a sweep” in the venerable (88 years old this year) “ARRL November Sweepstakes (CW)” (https://thewakesileave.wordpress.com/2016/11/09/a-qrp-cw-sweep-over-one-half-clean/).

In the end, VE3DTI was awarded 102 QSOs in 42/83 ARRL sections, thus confirming the “over half a sweep” (barely…). These were VE3DTI’s final results in the SOQRP category: 77th out of 119 overall, 3rd. out of 9 in Canada, 2nd. out of 6 in Ontario and 1st. out of 2 in Ontario East.

And if that was not enough, last week the mail brought this:
