2019 The Salmon Run Contest has ended — Did you catch anything?

The rules at this WWDXC LINK tell where to send your score and log.

Since the SDXA sponsors a plaque in this contest, we will wait for the results to announce our plaque winner; to win the plaque, one must score the highest number of points in the following special category:

Single Operator
Low Power – 100 watts or less
Operate in the EWA Section of the ARRL exclusively
Enter in Mixed Mode (two or more of the multiple modes and meet the percentage requirements in the Salmon Run rules
