[CQ-Contest] CQP Mixups, VY1JA Style

I would like to apologize for the dupes during CQP to the many that I hit

My Omni-V does not talk to the software, and I had trouble remembering to
switch the band and mode in the software so not only were there dupes, but
some of my logging will be in error.

Don't worry, I am sure that you will get credit for your QSOs...

I have sent a note in with the CQP log, asking the checkers to assign errors
of band and mode to my log, treating your logs as correct.  I know of only
one QSO that disappeared from my log (a 20 meter QSO with KA6BIM), and
another QSO that wanted to be the same number as the one that preceded it
for some unknown reason.

The cause of all of this is being addressed.... The microcontroller in my
Omni-V is being updated to Version V.9 and will be able in the future to
communicate with the software.  I am only one component short, a hex
inverter, 7417 chip.  My local Radio Shack does not carry them.  Does anyone
know of a supplier with no minimum order fee for a single chip... I hate to
pay $20 for one IC.

Thanks for your patience with me during CQP.

Conditions to/from YT were the PITS!   I think that the combined QSO counts
of VY1JA and VY1MB was something less than 350 QSOs.  The challenge of
propagation makes it interesting.  I love contesting anyway!
