4A7AMMWhat a ride! Trying a Multi-distrbituted with just a few day in advance (first time ever in Mexico), it meant overnight tests just two days before the test and missing two operators in the process. Of course we blew the first 19 hours of the event. Other than that, it was an awesome experience and we look forward to enroll more friends and participate in future events. Marco XE2S is a World class contester and hold several CQ XE records, he owns FB contest station outside of Hermosillo City in te state of Sonora Fernando XE2T is super enthusiast and motivated contester, whichs this time drove more than 3 hours to operate at Marcos station. Ismael XE1AY is a distiguihsed CW DXer and Contester who has operated in several Dxpeditions. Oscar XE2SSN was our VPN/IT expert which drove the connectivitty process and was actively monitoring our activities during the operating time he is planning to improve his CW speed to operate on next opportunities Here their comments: Marco XE2S: Nice experience participating in te new category eventhough having to solve several issues. Short operating time bu t losts of fun anyway, 20m was pretty good at night and 40m on the early morning too. Unfortunately had to stop operating due to rotator problem ( got stacked pointing north) . It w a s around 15:00z so we (XE2T and me) decided to repace it thinking it would take less than an hpur to do it, ja ja ja finaly took more than three hours of work on the tower so it was all for us since Fernando xe2t had to return to Nogales and i had to attend family issues. Hope better working conditions next time. Fernando XE2T:in this new experience, with this new category (multi-distributed) that taught us many new things in group coordination and discover how capable we are. The time we were in the air was enough to realize this thanks for all your support and as Marco XE2S says, the need to change the antenna rotor due to failure was carried out successfully, we will also see you soon at another event of this size 73 . Ismael XE1AY: A very good experiency with this new category( Multi-distributed), first time on contest and first time a Mexican groups of enthusiast Ham radio Friends, agreed to participate as a Team in a very big contest, we have learned to try our equipments and antennas previous a days before

9H6AMDProp was good most of the time at the expected bands. We could only muster three operators working very extended hours. At times trying hard to remain sane and keep eyes open. We missed the usual gang. Covid related we decided to operate as distributed as can be guessed. I think it was a good showing, We will probably have a high error rate, but any rate is forgiven under the circumstances. Tremendous kick as usual. Hope we can muster a better team next year.

AA2ASO QRP 20MThanks to Will, K6ND, for the use of his fine station!
AA2MXSO LP ALLA very good experience, many great ops. Thanks for a great weekend
AA8CLSO LP ALLGot a real late start. Still my 2nd best personal score. Bands were great
AA8TASO LP ALLHave not done one of these in a while but decided to try out my 'new' antenna. Raised my almost-on-the-ground dipole to an inverted-V about 3 times higher than it was. Got many EU stations, many countries I have not heard for a few years. So that was nice. Still cannot get out to the west, especially the Pacific and Asian areas. Lots of activity as expected. 40 meters was hot as expected. Some action on 15. 20 meters not as good as I was hoping for

AD1CSO LP ALLThe WPX contest was basically a way to kill time until 6 meters opened. It never really did until the contest was almost over. If W0W had not been on a grid expedition to EN48 in extreme northern Minnesota, I probably would not have put in as many hours as I did
AE6BHChecklogChecklog only, not an entry
AE6JVSO LP ALLMy log program was disconnected from the radio starting at 2021-05-30 1736 so I logged as 160M QSOs. I have manually corrected 10 QSOs to 20M
