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.

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!!

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?!?!?! :-)
