My first NAQP RTTY contest from my Maine QTH and my second 
overall with this contest.  I nearly doubled my score from 
February. I'm starting to understand RTTY, I like the laid-back 
attitude, and I may try running next time.  (I used to participate 
in the CQ VHF on this weekend and discovered the hard way that 
running two contests in parallel is not good.)

40 was my best band as that antenna is "sort of competitive."  
80 was OK. My 20M fixed dipole is no match even for my simple 
Moxon at 36' in Woburn, MA. I've been concentrating on the low 
bands here in ME so this is not unexpected.  Even a simple 
tribander would be much better on 20 & 15.

I was hopeing to fill in some of the few remaining states I need 
on 80, 20, and 15 for WAS from Maine.  Oh well, nada, but I still 
had fun!
