Pete, can you imagine how much fun EU contesters have fast typing up to 2K QTC for 36/48 hours? Small group of most dedicated ones would ask you for QTC. It is a favour for you as 10 QTC points are much easier than 10 QSO.at any rate.
I am playing around with CW Expert robot with FT1K and rusty TH6DXX. Short USA run last night when reverse beacon reported over 20 dB S/N. I don't need QRO for additional 13 dB. Almost 300 QSO and 60 QTC.
QTCs gladly received from OC N3RD since 1962. I helped YM TA2/DL2JRM to off-load 10 QTC on 10 m QSB condx. The others were offered to me. I am poor two fingers typist but my program parser helps with automatic jumps between standard time numbers-callsign-report.
WAE is tough game for a big boys. Reverse beacon makes it a lot easier with filtering from local node. I did old-fashioned, boring slow VFO turning for the first 12 hours :-(
