Makrothen RTTY 2011 Summary

leave a comment


Not much to say here. I got on the air for a short while Friday night and made a few contacts. I really wasn’t feeling up to this one since I had plans for putting in a lot of time in the PaQP and since there were some other contests I was thinking about dabbling in.

NAQP RTTY 2011 Summary

leave a comment


Didn’t plan on operating this test — my focus was on CQ VHF WW. But, after
experiencing poor propogation there, I figured I needed a fix. So I jumped on
RTTY for a short while.

15m was bust. 20m wasn’t great when I was on. 40m was nice with quiet band
conditions. I didn’t have my doublet up for this contest, so I didn’t want to
put in serious time on 80/40.

Was good to work a lot of the usual RTTY stations. Been a while since I
worked RTTY.
