I have to wonder what possessed me to pick this year's contest to get back on
for WW RTTY!  I think I can safely say that no all-band records were broken
this year!  With the SFI at 70 and a K index hitting 5 on Sunday...PEEEUWWW!

Actually, the first 24 hours werent too bad except for the complete absence of
10 meters.  I thought I might actually get close to the 3000 Q mark.  Had some
pretty phenomenal rates on Saturday and there was some hint of life on 15

...BUT, Saturday evening/Sunday morning were fairly dismal as the signals went
into the toilet as did the rates.  Not much to work in that second tier this
evening!  The sandman easily won out as well...took about 3 hours of nappy time
in the early morning and didnt feel like I missed much...  conditions gradually
recovered near the end of the contest period, but not early enough to save 15
meters from serious damage and there was never much hope for 10.

One of these days I'm going to have to break down and get some new-fangled
computers and software to do this thing.  But why mess with success?  As long
as I can keep these ISA bus computers running....  WF1B and RITTY forever!

My thanks again to John Evans, N3HBX, for the use of his fine station.
