Poor propagation, poor participation & a lack of interest on my part made this
one a hard one to operate.  I think condx were actually better this weekend than
during SARTG, but there seemed to be very low participation.  It's hard to have
back-to-back RTTY contests.

The main objective of the test was to test microHAM USB micro KEYER under high
power conditions.  Although I did use the B station occasionally, nearly all
contacts were done on the A station with the IC-775DSP and IC-PW1 running at a
KW with the micro KEYER.  Before the contest, I placed a #77 ferrite toroid on
the USB line from the keyer to the PC right at the input of the PC.  I'm happy
to report I did not lose the USB connect at any time and the micro KEYER
performed flawlessly.

Thanks to everyone for the contacts.  Looking forward to CQWW RTTY.

73, Don AA5AU
