Contest results, logs, and audio

Want to hear what your signal or SO2R contesting sounds like in aurora-ridden Finland or in the Azores?

Through this page you can access the logs and audio of my single-operator efforts. They are usually serious and aim for the national or European record in the chosen category. They are also mostly SO2R, so remember to use headphones when listening to the audio.

I have also included log checking reports that I have sometimes edited with my comments. I find it very educational to go through the contest audio together with the log checking report and to learn why I have made a certain mistake. And occasionally I learn that I didn't make a mistake after all, despite what the log checking software says.

The audio is stereo MP3, 8000 Hz, 32 kbps, so not the best, but rather a compromise between quality and file size. I will make new stuff available after a given contest's log submission deadline. Your feedback is much appreciated for improving the site further. Please enjoy!
