K8AZ Wins MS in IARU HF World Championships
The team of great ops at K8AZ pulled off a spectacular win in the 2019 IARU World Championships. Tom’s crew logged 2,069 contacts and 284 multipliers for a score of 1,775,888, coming in at the top of the multi-single category in North America. Their score also placed them 12th in the world, no mean accomplishment considering that the top 11 stations were all in or near the multiplier-rich European continent. The second-place K1IR team based in Eastern Massachusetts made 1,955 contacts and 258 multipliers. Congratulations Tom and team!
Other NCC members participating in the 24-hour IARU test were W1NN, placing third in NA in the CW-only LP category with 1,232 contacts and 170 mults for a score of 469K, N8AA with 330K in the same category, K8MR with 100K in the same category operating from his vacation QTH on the Cape in Massachusetts, and K8ZT, who placed second in NA in the QRP category. Well done, everyone!
