I don't do a lot of RTTY and I scrambled to get my computer set up.  I ended up
starting 15 minutes late.  Then my TS-850 would only send a carrier.  Fixed the
FSK interface (bad transistor), but then the combination of MMTTY+N1MM+Win98
started crashing about every third QSO.  It seems clear that I need more
computer horsepower (1.6 GHZ, 256 MB) and an officially supported OS (e.g.,
XP).  :-)  My K3 was running pretty hot, so I had to keep the power down to
about 65 watts, even with maximum fan.  Apologies to my SWACC teammates but
after a few hours, I threw in the towel.

I made eight or ten trips to 10M and would work a couple of pretty loud guys,
but couldn't get a run going.  

The best part was watching the Tampa Bay Rays beat up on the Yankees.   :-)
