Sadly, the contest came during a very busy time but we put in a bit of an
effort. Only objective was to beat last year's score. My full-size vertical came
down during the week ahead of the contest - the supporting structure had rusted
through and one of the brackets gave way so it was leaning at a 45 degree angle
but also touching the radial plate. I decided I would also add an old Sigma 40XK
(vertical dipole) to add some variety tied together with one of my stackmatches.
Well the full size vertical was always way better so we ended up making 100% of
the QSO's on that antenna but it was nice having back-up.

Conditions seemed a bit rough and I had pretty high noise at my QTH. 

All in all it was good to get back on RTTY for a bit and great to work so many
old friends. 

Working conditions included a TS 590s and the dxengineering fast taper 40m 1/4
wave vertical. 

Thanks to the stations who were able to pull in this peanut-whistle from 8P.
