2021 ARRL International DX CW Contest

I participated in the 2021 ARRL International DX CW Contest hosted by ARRL for 48 hours from 00:00 on February 20, 2021. The operation status during the contest is as shown in the chart below.


The number of QSOs is half that of last year. A big fluctuation of the signal was felt. I thought it was QSB. When I was curious and turned on the antenna rotator, the directional needle pointed in a different direction. And the needle kept moving. It was completely out of control. When I went outside and checked the antenna, it was moving like a weathercock. This drastically reduced my motivation and made me unable to concentrate on the contest. I think the cause is probably the first spring storm. This situation makes my pocket too painful. OMG!!
