My first ever contest! During my first two hours I was at best fumbling with not much success. I almost hung it up but instead decided to give it a go with 2 hours to go. By the last 30 minutes I was getting a pile up! Kind of cool being on the other end of it. My heart was literally racing trying to catch my final few QSOs in the last remaining minutes.
