In this competition amateurs from around the world endeavor to contact Japanese amaturs on the standard radio bands from 160-meters (1.8 mhz) to 10-meters (28 mhz). 160-meter contacts are worth 4 points, 10-meter contacts are worth 2 points and contacts on the other bands are worth 1 point. With sunspot cycle #24 well under way 10 meters will give us a lot of points.

Here is the highlights from the 2010 JIDX C.w. event (made possible by WQ6X Software).

JIDX C.w. 2010 - 1st-Place N.A.

This pic was snapped in the 2011 SSB contest during a 20-meter pileup at around
11am - 3 hours after I should have been in bed following the 3am to 8am shift.
Unfortunately the relief operator got lost - easy to do in the Fallbrook hills.
The dual-receive ICOM 7800 did a superb job, as did the AWEsome ACOM
2000A amplifier. Mustering 1450w into a 70' yagi-array was a breeze.
