Got a nice surprise in the mail today. An 8th place Certificate for IARU HF World Championship: SO Assisted, CW, QRP, EMA Section.
I totally forgot about playing as QRP one day and must have uploaded logs for the sake of the contest.

You mentioned your antenna setup at the extra class last weekend and I was a bit slow in my copy. Can you tell us what you have and how you have it configured. Congrats on the contesting!May 22, 2016 at 4:01 pm #2822
It is a 40/20/15/10/6/2 meter vertical dipole. It is center fed with capacitance spokes at the top and the bottom set are pointed out 90-degrees from vertical to give a place for a mounting pole.
This is the MFJ entry for it. I picked it up 2nd hand new in box for $100 about 15 years ago. http://www.mfjenterprises.com/Product.php?productid=MFJ-1796
I have it mounted on a conduit pipe up about 6 feet or so.
I couldn’t get a pic of my other antenna that I use for 160m. It blends in too well for a picture. I got a 500′ foot roll of 14ga insulated wire on clearance at Home Depot one day. I cut an appropriate length, ran it vertically (about 40′) to a branch of an oak tree and ran the rest over to another tree near the other corner of my small backyard.
