My expectations for the CQ WW DX SSB contest have been exceeded. I had previously reported 19 new countries worked on phone during the event and lamented that few of those would likely confirm via LoTW. Mea Culpa! So far 12 of those have indeed confirmed adding nicely to my chase for DXCC phone.

Raw scores for the event are available here.

It might be another year before I get a shot at wrapping up DXCC phone and that’s okay. Phone is a definite weak spot for me and one that needs a lot of work. Next year I want to shift my focus to improving my contesting skills. But that’s next year, right now it’s time to wrap up DXCC CW by the end of 2022.
