My favorite part of amateur radio is running HF contests. Unfortunately I do not longer live at 10'th floor in the students dormitory in Oslo, 300m above see level. Still I try to do my best with the little gain I have.

I will here express my great thanks to Lisbeth, mother of my YL, who lets me keep my 3 element tribander atop of rotten tree at her house.

As you can see, I only run CW contests nowdays. I guess I am getting older, and my voice is not what it used to be. And CW is so much more fun! My favorite contests are WAE DC and HSC. Receiving QTC from a DX with lots of QRM at 40 WPM is not easy. I love HSC contests because you can work lots of QSOs during few hours, and you are off. I would prefer shorter contests with many participants. There are such local contests in Norway, but activity is very low (great number of active LA participants in the international contests are in fact foreigners, myself, Piotr LA9HFA and Andy LA2HFA come from Poland, and Uli LA0CX is German).

But still CQ World Wide is the king due to so much activity.

The best Norwegian contesters are at LA Contest Club LA8W. You can also visit LA9HW Contest Calendar. It is probably the best!
