What the heck does “73” mean? 73 is morse code short hand for “Best Regards” used by Ham radio operators. It’s origin goes all the way back to the landline telegraph days.

This was a fun, casual contest for me!! ... Everyone on the band was looking for a US station. I worked Search & Pounce for most of the 5 hours I was on, then called CQ the last 2 hours, after I had pretty much worked everyone calling CQ and picked up a bunch more. Lots of interesting contacts this year, and one "all time new one" for me, Guernsey, and island in the English Channel, between England and France. Lots of big DX stations with BIG antenna farms too. So, you don't have to have a big station for this contest, just good ears to sort out the pileups.
