Guys, I'll describe my setup for the CQ RJ RTTY contest last weekend, try
not to laugh hysterically, please. The setup was at our club's annual "Fall
Round-Up" where we mostly sit around the fire, eat, and shoot the BS...I was
not in the contest as a serious contender for awards, but still managed to
snag some nice DX stations. I did not operate for more than about 45 minutes
at a sitting, as I was mingling with other members, eating, etc. Still I had

Rig: Ten Tec Corsair at 100 watts
Antenna: Hustler 4 band Mobile, mounted to the bumper of my Ranger
Computer: IBM PS-2 model 50z, 286-12mhz
TNC: MFJ-1278bt
Software: XPCom for DOS

Goes to show that you can do a lot with a simple set-up, getting serious
about it only complicates things and adds stress, something I can do
