Comments ARI DX 2024

The ARI DX 2024 finished ten days ago. I’m not satisfied about my performance even if I had the same effort as last year. The score dropped 10% with 9% of multiples and 10% qso less than last year. The propagation wasn’t good. The 10 and 15 metres were quite close despite sun spots were more than 100, but, may be, the solar storm happened the days after the contest began to make itself felt. so now read my Comments ARI DX 2024.
