Couldn't go about this one too seriously, had too much stuff to do that
Saturday, including spending time with family. 

My setup was a little odd. I used the CocoaModem software on a 12" Al PowerBook
running MacOS X 10.4. However, CocoaModem doesn't quite know how to log a
contest with a two-element exchange, so I did the actual logging on a Toshiba
laptop running Windows 98 and N1MM.

This made for a bit of confusing interplay. To make the CocoaModem macros work
right, I had to put the other stations call into a field. However, I also had to
turn and type the call and exchange into N1MM. Sometimes CocoaModem was into the
wrong macro mode when I went to call someone -- sorry for CQing on top of you.

Despite the extra work, it was worth it. CocoaModem really rocks! I had tried
out MMTTY, but there is no comparison. CocoaModem could often decode signals
cleanly that had barely discernable tuning patterns.

Had fun.
