First RTTY contest from the "new" Signal Point shack on Curacao (formerly owned 
by PJ9JT), and my first RTTY contest from the DX end. Excellent conditions and 
a great QSO rate (right at 59 per hour on average for the duration of the 
contest, but well over 75 per hour for the first 11 hours). Was running 
neck-and-neck with ZF2NT for most of the contest, but I fell behind at the end 
-- just couldn't get a good sustained run going during the last several hours 
of the contest. I'll be interested to see how we compare on multipliers.

I used WriteLog and the MMTTY plug-in, and experienced about 6 lock-ups of the 
MMTTY software for no obvious reason. WriteLog was, as usual, bulletproof. And 
MMTY printed signals that I could barely even hear -- it's amazing to me that 
software as good as this is FREE to the amateur community. Thanks to Mako, 
JE3HHT for making it available.

Thanks to all who called me, and a special thanks to the Caribbean Contesting 
Consortium and especially Geoff, W0CG, for making such an excellent station 
available to the contesting community. More info on the CCC and the PJ2T shack 
is at: http://asgard.kent.edu/ccc

Please QSL PJ2T via KN7Y.

Thanks & 73,

-Marty PJ2T / NW0L
