Band conditions seemed very rough today, but appreciate all the ops who made QSOs with us rookies! 
Wondering why total unique DX entities is asked for when only 1 generic DX multiplier is given?
(5.2.4)  Wouldn't submitting a Cabrillo file be easier?

N1MM / MMTTY / K3 / Delta Loop in palm trees.  I was surprised at how many DX callers I had. 
Unfortunately, only 3 of them sent me the year in which they were first licensed.  Bulk of activity
was on 20m, but was able to work a few on 40m.  Nothing on 10m or 15m heard in SFL and no replies to
my CQs on those two band.  Thanks for the Qs!  73  KK4CIS

As a bit of a RTTY Rookie myself, I enjoyed working a few Rookies and even bagged a couple of DX
stations that called in.  I wish we'd had better conditions but you get what you get!

This was my first experience with rtty and I found that I liked it more than ssb/phone, as it was
quite enjoyable.

Conditions on 20 meters seemed to shift during first 3 hours and signals were up and down. My last
chance to operate as a rookie was fun and I look forward to working the rookies for years to come. I
operated portable from 1829 to 2128 utc on solar / battery power using a MP-1 antenna from DM43ee.
Thank You both Rookies' and Vets for the contacts.. 73's de WX7MB  Mark
