QRL? must not be taught in all areas.
This was a great day. It was my first attempt at RTTY, and I learned so much. I can not wait until the next one! Thanks and 73 to all my contacts.
Made as many QSOs as I could during the contest. Although I have participated in many SSB contest, this was my first RTTY contest I ever participated in.
Welcome to the Wide World of Contesting. Perhaps I was the first CF3 that you have ever worked. CF3NAVY is a special call sign for 100 years of submarines in the Royal Canadian Navy. Check it out on qrz.com
Worked all I could find, had hoped this would have more participation. Thanks to all who answered my calls. Can't believe the ARRL doesn't have a feature to support cabrillo file upload and pull the needed info from that. Definitely a pain to sort through log for rookie/non-rookie contacts as well as the states/ve/xe/dx info. Time to join the 21st century!
Great to host Spencer KD0ZJE, just licensed this spring. Great score for Iowa on his very first contest!

First contest and first RTTY contact - yay - fun! 73, Kirby KDØYJN
Am not a rookie, but I enjoyed the contest anyway. Lots of good operators among the new people.
Although I called for rookies only, several non-rookies answered my CQ. I hope all the rookies that contacted me had fun!
WASFIRST CONTEST FOR BOTH OF US. GREAT LEARING EXPERIENCE. LOTS OF FUN BUT WISH MORE PROPLE WERE OPERATING. WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE SSB ROOKIE CONTEST.

Glad to help the new Rookies out. They did pretty good. For some, if they had to answer something that was not in a macro it threw them off a bit. Hope they stay with RTTY.
