Had to change my exchange from DICK 73 TX to DICK 1973 TX to resolve confusing with 73.  Wish I had
dedicated more time to the contest.

Could only work 20 meters. Fun none-the-less!

This is my last 'Rookie' contest. I was licensed late in 2014 so I missed those, but enjoyed the SSB
and RTTYs ones in 2015 & 2016, Don't think I did to good this time.  Thanks for the contests.

Poor conditions in MT. Over 4 hours only heard the same 4 stations fading in and out. Just an
observation. As I was licensed in November of 2014, I won't be eligible for Rookie next year even
though I will have only been licensed for 2 years not 3. Feels almost like I am missing out of a

Did not have much time to operate, but in my brief operating time found very few rookies needing to
be rounded-up.

My second year (only one more as a rookie) and it was again a good time.  I couldn't stay for the
whole event unfortunately.
There were a lot of callers throwing out just their call signs but not responding; I'm guessing
there was a DX I could not copy?

RooWe had 7 Rookie PCARS Club Members operate in this Contest. Some had operated before and some had
never see RTTY in action. We operated on 20 meter mostly since there seemed to be little activity on
the other bands. Everyone had a great time and got a good taste of how to operate RTTY. All are
looking forward to the next Rookie Contest.

Club callsign, N1FD, host at the AB1QB/AB1OC station.  We all had a great time and learned alot
about RTTY contesting!  Looking forward to the CW Rookie Roundup in December!
