Andy, I'm not sure if you're refering to me. But, don't get me wrong,
Jim's file was superb! It only missed CH9 & since I had several IS0 
stations, IB9S didn't come into play as a new (possibly missed) mult.
I have to admit he is EXTEREMELY THOROUGH. This was the "cleanest" 
test ever in terms of the .CTY file.  Great job, Jim! 73 de Walt - K2WK

I can't resist a comment relative to the "I must be mad" statement. I think 
working single band on 80 from GM0 where there are at least some real 
countries to work around Europe is perfectly sane when compared to working 
single band 75 in the ARRL SSB weekend this year from W0 land. 
That is insanity when done from the black hole of Colorado. I now have a nice 
certificate confirming my insanity for doing just that. The certificate 
resulted from a grand total of 61 QSO's from my station.... most boring 
contest I've ever worked...but, you can win a category by being more insane 
than everybody else ;)

TS830S/VFO230S, SB221(w/10 meters), Mosley PRO-67B at 50 feet for 10
through 40. 2 elements Hytower vertical phased array on 75(also used
intermittently on 40 - and, on certain paths outperformed the PRO67B's
2 elements on 40!).

Murphy got to me this time, but fun was had in spite of him. I started
2.5 hours late due to a failed 2 meter rig on the packet station which
delayed the start while I repaired the failure (including a parts run
to the local Radio Shack). Then, about halfway through the contest,
some TBD problem developed with the packet setup which kept me from
having a reliable connect to one of the local clusters :(

Total score this year was 11,000 pts below '92. Total operating time
was about 5 hours less than previous year. 10 meters was the
pits here in Colorado when compared to last year's 300 Q's there. But,
more zones/countries overall were worked. And, as one would expect, 80
and 40 meter results were better than '92.

Next year I hope to have a useable vertical on 160.  Based on 10 this
year, the low bands will be where the improvements should be made for
the next few years.

See you all in SS Phone later this month.

I have been unsuccessful in getting CT to talk to the FT-1000D (or vice versa).

COMTSR2 is being loaded with -b4800 -n82
The communications setup in CT is being setup properly.

I am using the Yaesu FIF-232-C TTL to RS232 converter.  Yaesu mentions a switch
to invert the signals.  How should this be set?

BTW, I have CT ver 8.42.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Message-ID: <9311031940.AA01622@us1rmc.bb.dec.com>

Here are the modifications you need to do to your CTY files to make them
reflect the contest just passed:

1.  Add IB9S and IK9B as prefixes for Sicily, IT9.

2.  Modify default prefix for KC4AAA to be 39.  Even though they are at the
    South Pole, thus having a choice of zones, they usually give out Zone 39
    in the contests.

3.  Add these prefixes (callsigns really) for USA:


4.  Add these prefixes for Canada:


Now read your log into CT again and exit.  Look at the .ZON file and make
sure you understand every line.

We lost Zone 3 on 160 because of mis-logging AA6TT's zone.

All of the above changes will be incorporated into the November CW release.

intend to use all the normal antennas, including the HyGain 402BA 2
element forty meter beam.

Does anybody have access to the manual on the 402BA who can tell me
how much I have to add to each element tip to bring the resonance
down into the CW band?  I want to take with me the necessary lengths
of tubing in the right sizes, with hose clamps, etc.

I need to come clean here.  I fouled this up.  I was suffering from
computer and/or software familiarity problems and somehow, in a flurry
of keystrokes (and extremely colorfull language... my wife was wondering
just what in the hell was I doing... ), could not get my exchange to
send.  The visible dupesheet was displayed (covering up the last 5 q's
window) so I could not see what I logged for the previous qso.  I
panicked.  I sent MAX to K6XO.

Note to Tree:  I am not blaming the software... once I figured out what
to do, it worked great.  This was strictly an operator induced error.
Call it brain lock.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll go back to licking my wounds and try to
get ready for ss this weekend.  Hope to work you all ( and copy your
exchange correctly !! ) from K5OJI m/s.
