The world may also be divided in 2 by the ones who deal with QTC's and the ones
who don't !!!
My first serious attempt with my modest "domestic station" . I really enjoyed
this contest, for it's originality and the place made to the strategy (unlike a
CQWW). The QTC business is really fun although I had some problems with mixW
(the contest DLL has still some serious bugs, but I love so much the "advanced
waterfall" for S&P).
Could have done better with off-time management, but had to be off for F vs EI
in the Rugby world cup, so missed the JA window on 10m. Heard a few JA's between
the match 2 halves, but they were rare on the air anyway (due to their SSB
contest, I guess).
40m has been my best band, and 20m my worst (NA window far too short from S.E.
France) - Propagation wise the 10m has been surprisingly good with NA(just
missed W7 and the west-most VE's). Like many EU's I have been unable to break
ZF2NT NA pile-up (WAE-TTY rule drawback) on 80, but transatlantic condx remained
poor on 80 anyway, so I focused on 40...
In brief I have just been missing a few more QTC'ers for more points and fun; In
TTY it's no so complicated (have you ever done in by hand in CW?), and it's fun,
so don't be shy and join the "clever half" next year !
Thanks all for QSO's and QTC's and see you in CQWW-CW from 4U1ITU.
PS: By the way I' m active from 4U1ITU on tty those days - My office is just
accross the street, so basicaly I can be active at Geneva lunchtime (11-13z
window) and after office hours (>1630z). But PLEASE no QSL to my homecall - QSL
route is the usal "official and unique" one: Bureau or PO-Box 6 Geneva.
