Remarks (Biggest thrill in contest, funniest story, comments, etc.):
My first time EVER on RTTY. I got cabled up a couple days before the
contest but couldn't find any stations to test my setup with. Every time I
saw my callsign on the screen, it was a real thrill. I could not believe
how well the program copied even with wide (SSB) filters. I did not run at
all, just S/P. WS7I was only station I worked on 5 bands. I worked 43
countries total, a good start towards DXCC. Looking forward to the BARTG
contest in a few weeks. FSK for sure.
Club Competition: Yankee Clipper Contest Club
This is to certify that in this contest I have operated my transmitter
