Not much activity on the other side, either. 94 JA Int'l phone contest result 
lists only 12 log submissions from US. 11 of them won the award (only one 
missed !), 9 won the plaque. Easy to win !! The US all band winner receives the 
round trip ticket to JA ! Why do not you take one more contest in the contest 
season ?  Remember JA Int'l contest phone in mid of Novemver. 

See you in CW contest ! (LF in Jan and HF in Apr ??? I am not sure :>

Ken, KP4XS wrote about his expierence in RTTY contest from W3LPL and I expected
Tyler, KF3P to expand on that instead of single line comment!  It seems to me
that K1NG M/M win last year still hurts (memories from AB5KD speech in Dayton).
In order to win on RTTY, I go to our club site 1114m asl with monobanders,
FT1000, big QRO and low man-made noise as it is in the midlle of nat. park!
And I never get bored of USA pile-up as they do it right ie. short calls!
If I stay home with IC-735, SB-221, TH6DXX & 402BA, I am still "a big station"
on RTTY as the majority of EU operate barefoot with GP or dipoles!  However,
I hear much more of the city electronic smog, local AFSK QRM etc.
But even with above modest set-up and "olympian" approach to contesting, I
manage to keep second place on S5 rating list thanks to RTTY scores!

Message-ID: <199511161340.FAA28525 at ix.ix.netcom.com>

In case anyone has been inspired by my question about using a separate
receive antenna with the TS-930s, be forewarned:

The way to connect a receive antenna is via the XVERTR input on the back of
the 930.  However, the 8-pin DIN plug that mates with this jack is
apparently NOT the same as the Radio Shack 8-pin DIN.  The jack on the 930
includes a switch which, when any plug is inserted, disconnects the RX
antenna from the common antenna terminal and makes ready to receive on a
separate antenna.  If you have any plug inserted, your receive antenna
switch needs to choose between the separate antenna or connecting back to
the common antenna through the same jack.

The commonly available 8-pin DIN plug has a keyway that is said to be a
different size than that on the jack on the TS-930, 430 and 440.  It is
reportedly quite easy to break the socket if you try to plug in the generic
plug, and a real bear to replace. 

I haven't verified this, but thought it important enough to pass on.

The correct Kenwood plug is part # E07-0851-05, cost $6.47 plus shipping.
