First night was quite slow, spent quite some time playing with 4O3A Genius
Interface Alternate CQ, which was useful to maximize short periods when
propagation on 80/160m allowed me to have mini-runs with 100w, increasing low
band multiplier total.
After some rest, started after local noon time and found 20/15m open. The best
hour was Saturday afternoon, unfortunately only two hours with rate over 100.
No signs of NA on 10m on Saturday, just barely audible NM4 station... although
the rate was slow, switching between 15/20m was cool, since there were no real
pile ups, at least I could maximize use of two bands opened at the same time.
Sunday was even worse, when I run out of big guns I could not attract too many
responses from 'small pistols' from NA.
The good thing was dual CQ fine-tuning. Ranko's firmware guru Spider was again
making changes to allow more flexibility for dual CQ functionality. The IG is
now being customized based on the operator's needs and can independently
perform several scenarios, with easy access through IG menu button. As it also
allows using OTRSP scenarios from WT. Quite unique approach, the wish list can
be easily accessible by upgrading firmware - I've done it at least twice during
the contest....++TU-- to Ranko and his team again for the excellent support!
73 to all, good to work many NA friends.
