        Here's my results for the NAQP. I only had very limited time, a
little over 2 hours to operate, but it was fun! Entirely S & P operation. 
See you all next one.

Yes, you can do this technically. 

However DO NOT this during CQ WW DX contest. In my understanding, 
the rule prohibit to use any phone connections or the Internet 
connections for all classes. Even M/M class is not allowed to use 
phone calls during contest.

So if your Packetcluster(tm) has regular connection to other 
countries/continent via the Internet, you should disconnect them 
during contest.

Message-ID: <69322@ljutcp.hamradio.si>

Hi Contesters,
I unpluged headphones 8 hours after the end of EUHFC and I heard famous BANG in
the FT-1000 speaker.  This speaks a lot for a quality of components uaed a
as 1 mF electrolytic capacitor decopling DC from speaker did NOT discharge.
Cheap 100 Ohm resistor might solve this problem but it can not be found even in
rigs manufactured by famous Hi-Fi company.  There is a room for "new tecnology"
similar to 2 keyer inputs in some recent rigs!

Here are some comments;

Here is a copy of my rfzhiscr.dta file. I use many different callsigns when
running RUFZ. KC5NWX is my "club" call which I intend to change to a "vanity"
call for contests, but keep KR0Y for ragchew, etc. I assure you that KR0Y is
the operator for all of the scores listed below, except the DL3DZZ, hi!!

I too was very surprised by the 36807 score since I have not been able to do
better than 35208 any other time. I do not understand exactly how the score
is calculated, but I do know that a longer call=more points. Since the calls
are sent at random I think for that 36807 score I must have had many 6 letter
calls. Tonight I will load the master.dta file for RUFZ and see what happens.

Please send me a list of what "high claimed" scores you have now.

Hi Tack - FInally broke 40K! Think it is time to retire, unless, of 
course, someone beats the score :.) :.)
I do think there is a timing problem in the program. Even at relatively 
slow speeds, I am having trouble with S/H, B/D, U/V. Sounds like a QSK 
rig with slow relay :.)

Hi Mitch,

It sounds more like your hardware is not ready for prime time.

I have installed Win95 on several systems, and have only had 
good results.  It has worked well with all of the programs that I
have tried.  Although, I did have a problem with the drivers for 
my 8-port serial card from Digiboard.  But, they provided me an
updated installation file, and all is now well.

You should try Win95 again someday, after you upgrade your systems.

73, Bill

p.s. CT is one of the programs that I use.

     Comments:Sporadic E was tremendous Friday night; 10mtrs open from

     New England through midwest until at least midnight. There was some

     E Saturday, but not enough to make the east coast competitive with

     the guys down south. Impressed with all the new yl's getting into

     contesting from the midwest (strange that they are all named 

     Laurie!). Several om black hole ops very apparently missing!

I was carefully reviewing my August CQ to see how I fared in the 160
contests (had to get that contest word in there), and was struck
dumbfounded by the picture on the cover. If I see what I think I see,
N0RR is perched on the side of a CRANK-UP TOWER!

Now, around here, that is considered living very dangerously.
Either I am grossly mistaken, or he is very bold indeed.

It will be interesting to see if he lives to be an old contester
(there's that "c" word again) by climbing crank-up towers that are
fully extended.

73, Jim 

P.S. Didn't do too badly in the contest for Ohio.

Well, since you feel you really have to know, Win95 was being beta tested 
on that machine, and I didn't have time to uninstall before Field Day. 
Hope I was able to set all wondering minds to rest.
