CQ WPX SSB 2012 Certificate Received

About three weeks ago, I received certificate from SSB part of last year’s CQ WPX contest. It was a very nice surprise: I hadn’t expected it at all + it arrived exactly on my birthday!

The certificate is for 1st place  in Czech Republic in SO AB LP Tribander/Single Element category (overlay). My total score in the contest was 612,896 points (688 QSOs, 428 multipliers).

This year’s CQ WPX SSB is held on 30th – 31st March. Unfortunately, I’ll be in the mountains during that time, but hope to see you in CW part…
