Had a blast.  Finally got around to building a second FSK 
interface and adding a COM port for true seamless SO2R 
operation. It sure is easier to copy call signs on the 
second radio when a computer is doing all the the work 
copying for me!  

I was off the air for several hours due to thunderstorms
and two power outages that lasted several hours each.
The good news was that it turned into a part time "just
for fun" contest operation.  I still have a lot to learn
about handling two radios smoothly in the RTTY mode.
Speaking of smooth, N1MM Logger worked as smooth as my 
bald crown. The SO2R features worked very well, and I 
haven't even begun exploring the advanced SO2R modes yet.

Nice to hear some new calls on the RTTY mode, including 
some very familiar contest call signs. Definately looking 
forward to the next RTTY contest. It's relaxing and fun,
and a great way to check out the technical prowess of
one's station. I've already got a list of improvements
started for the next time.

Thanks for the QSOs and the fun.
