Remarks: An infinite improvement on my last year's score (On vacation at
this time last year - poor planning on my part).
Ten meters was disappointing, but it could have been worse. Friday night
the local thunderstorms made 80 worthless at this QTH. Forty meters was
good considering the local conditions and time of year. Twenty and 15
meters were good on a scale of excellent, good, okay and lousey... I was a
surprised to hear KH6ND loud on 80 Sunday morning (local time). Missed the
Japan stations on 40 meters Sunday morninig. Got on 40 too late as just
heard them fading away.
The DX Packet Cluster spots helped a lot finding the multipliers and
determining which bands were open. Thanks to all who took the time and
effort to post the spots.
Thanks to the SARTG for sponsoring the SARTG RTTY Contest. They have
maintained a fine tradition with this contest. The format of eight hours
on and eight hours off is nice (means one less variable I can mis-judge).
Special thanks to all who were kind enough to work me.
