I used an old Icom IC-720A with FLdigi on Linux. The interface is home brew. I have home brew antennas, 20m dipole 50' high and an NVIS 40m dipole.
Had a great day... learned a new technique. Now I just need to refine it!
Not good conditions. Very frustrating, and I'm not even a rookie! Stations would appear and vanish almost instantly. I hope the rookies did better than this OM.
Thank you to Dave K1TTT for his hospitality and hosting this contest!
First time on RTTY. Thanks for the QSOs!
It was super fun! I can't wait for next year.
I reported the wrong license year to N1FD.
States I contacted were: OH, IL, NH (x's2), MA, and CT. I learned this on the fly solo, so I hope I have submitted this right. Had a blast even though the bands were terrible!! 73
Licensed in 2014, but first RTTY contact in 2017.
From my area, I only heard the other 3 stations the entire 6 hours. They were loud and clear at the beginning and the end. No one else was heard the entire time on 40m, 20m, 15m, and 10m. The scoring changed! I used to be a rookie. I was licensed in November of 2014 and now I am not a rookie? Are you sure?!?!?! :-)
Mahalo to NH6Y for great coaching and equipment.
