Another RU from Smoke Ranch and K7ZSD's station. Thank you again Brad and Ruth
for the hospitality.
I had planned to run NIMM with MMTTY. On the day before tried to set up N1MM
latest version with MMTTY 1.68a. I displayed a bizarre problem of the MMTTY
windows in a loop reinitalizing themselves. Bummer, went to back up plan and
used WinTest 4.7 with MMTTY 1.68a and all worked without incident. I will have
to investigate the issue with N1MM and MMTTY at a later date. I would have
preferred to use N1MM but went with the path of least resistance in order to
have things working with SO2R and the MH MK2R+ controller and the software.
Conditions were strange with very few European (and mults) stations worked
either day. There were not enough Pacific Stations on to help with the mults
but did work all states and most Canadian Provences but NU, PEI, LB and a few
others not worked. It ended up being a domestic test from here in the NW. Lots
of new calls and in general the operating skills of the worked stations has
improved over the last few RU tests. Good to see the increase of participation.
I improved both the Q's and final score over last year and that was a major goal
for me in this test. The highlight for me was working my good friend (and
ringleader) from IH9P, Joe IT9BLB, Ciao again and big hug for the harem!
It was fun and I thank all the stations who got on and who ended up in my log.
See you all in the WPX!
Ciao and 73
