                        CQ 160 METER CONTEST           1994

      Call: KN8Z                     Country:  United States
      Mode: CW                       Category: Multi Single


     Totals   1357    3884      56      51    =   415,588


Operators:  KN8Z, NZ8O, WX8T, N8JEC, WA8YVR, WU8A, KA3GZS

Friday night:  Had EU opening at sunset (2300 Z), lasted about an hour.
               Heard many more than we worked.  Band opened up very well
               to west.  Unlike ARRL, many northern U.S. and VE stations
               had good signals.  EU came back in at about 0600 Z.  JA
               was disappointing, only got one.

Saturday night was much better, had EU almost the whole evening.  The
spots from the packet system were excellent -- really helped our score.

Had 94 EU, 2 JA and 1 VK.  Worked 4 VE6's and 4 KH6's!  There sure was
a lot of activity during the daytime -- we worked 200 q's between 1300
and 2200 on Saturday.

Congrats to WW2Y for another super score.  See you all next year.

Message-ID: <92940131154129/0006135537NA3EM at>

As for AA7NX....I too had a VERY bad time with Loud sigs overloading
the front-end of my 765.   Band was almost useless at times due to 
all the Imaging going on in the Rcvr.   I noticed that LTA sells a 
Front-End Mod kit for the IC-765.   Would this help??     I also tried
the Attn and it didnt help much.

          Thanks   Rich KI3V/7   KI3V at

Subject: CT vs. ???
Message-ID: <9401311650.AA02017 at>

I hear a lot of discussion about the problems with CT, mostly relating
to bugs in new versions. I'm wondering why, then, everyone continues
to use it? I know there must be some people using NA and the new N6TR 
package, but why the overwhelming use of CT? (I don't use any of 
them yet, but plan to start with ARRL DX CW, so I'm interested). If the
answer is obvious, just let me know. If you send me email instead of 
answering on the reflector, I'll summarize and post the comments.
