Set-up: 10KW generator in club truck; wire antennas broadside E/W; TS-950,
IC-737, CT 8.7 logging; steak fry at 2:30 am.
OPs: AA9JY, KD0AV, K0OAM, W9ZV, N1??
Operated from park in Glen Ellyn, IL, a Chicago suburb. Other than being
hot, wx was great and no bugs. Our goal was 1500 q's but we didn't play as
well on 20 mtr as we hoped. Next year gonna put up a yagi and do better on
20 and 15. 80 mtr did well without too much high noise so we were able to
pull out the weak ones.
73 and cu in IARU test,

Subject: Possibly naive wish dept.
Recently, we had a club meeting at W3LPL, and I was fascinated by the
thought and evident attention to detail that went into his set-up. I was
also reminded, once again, of the relative paucity of station design
information that appears in any of the mags. CQ regularly features the
owners of significant stations on the cover, but the information on
their stations is limited to what you can glean from the pictures (which
usually include nothing out of doors). NCJ is better on specific
configuration issues, and pieces of hardware (as witness the excellent
articles on stacking, multi-single/multi-2 relay boxes, etc.)
What I would dearly love to see, though, would be articles somewhere
(maybe here on the reflector ?) by or about people who have given a lot of
thought to broader contest station design issues -- in other words,
discussion of how owners of outstanding stations go about overall design
and engineering. I personally would be most interested in 1-tower station
design for both DX and domestic contesting, but I imagine others would
like a broader spectrum of possibilities. Either way, the idea would be
to stimulate thought and (maybe) new design approaches.
Would any of the logical people be willing to write such articles for the
edification of the rest of us? I hope that there isn't so much
"proprietary" data involved that it would be prohibitive, but maybe that's
where the naivete comes in...

Subject: KIY interface
Does anyone know if the good folkswho produced the KIY computer interface
are stll in business? and, if so, how to get hold of them?
I bought one a few years ago prewired with a 6 pin din for my Yaesu.
Now I need to reconfigure it for an Icom. I have the dip switch settings
necessary for the change, but need to know which two wires get connected
to the Icom connector. (Misplaced the literature, of course!)
Any help sould be appreciated. Looking forward to using new rig in
upcoming IARU next week, es need to get this taken care of.

Yes, I think KIY is K1CC, CBA, because I think he gave me a stack of KIY
flyers to pass around last year.

Comments: Our best combined 20/40 CW/SSB Q total ever; 15 and 10 were very
spotty here. We could have used a better VHF location and a better balance
between CW-SSB. The 20/40 SSB station was operated almost entirely by 15-year
old KC6CNV (W6TMD's kid, of BV2 fame) - he only slept 1 hour and made nearly
2K Qs. This is our last club FD operation as N6AW, since Hughes is shutting
down the Fullerton site and scattering everybody to the four winds. We've had
a good run, with FD top 5 finishes in 3A the last ~10 years, including 1sts in
'89 and '93.
