November Sweeps 2013 was a tremendous event for W5YM! We had a number of students actively participating, including Jill (AC0MX), Matt (W5VO), Hannah (KD5WNF), and Austin (W3SVN).

The W5YM final claimed score was 48,216. We ALMOST had a Clean Sweep… we lacked only ONE section… SNJ, of all places!

Still, the event was the first time that several of the students had ever participated in November Sweeps (or any contest) so a lot of lessons were learned, and a lot of fun was had.

If you made contact with us during the contest, do note that our QSOs have already been uploaded to Logbook of the World (LoTW).
