I ran the CQ WPX RTTY contest this weekend. Got on the air for right at 13 hours of the total 48 hours of the entire contest. Fairly casual effort and didn’t lose any sleep. Still managed to make 398 QSOs and 218 different call sign prefixes for just over 180,000 points.
I ran my Elecraft K3 at 100 watts into my two verticals. Didn’t put up the Moxon. Ran RUMped along with Cocoa Modem. RUMped locked up about six times during the contest. Left one contact just hanging there while I tried to restart things. Did just acquire a surplus Windows desktop computer for $10. Getting ready to fire that up and put WriteLog on it and a number of other ham radio items. Should get me into the mainstream of amateur radio software. More news on that one soon.
If you worked me during the contest, thanks so much for the QSO.
