UG what a disaster! I get all set,
open the logger,
and find my first station to call,
press on the foot switch and nothing happens,, I eventually find where I
had a connection in line for a straight key broke behind the desk, so no
foot switch, and cant type and operate a PTT with the hand at the same
So I try to go at it using VOX, I HATE VOX! I'm not used to it. That
alosme messed me up tremendously! then this contest royally screwed me
This format drove me nuts!
I'm good at running a freq,
and not too bad at S&Ping,
but like this contest where it's mixing both constantly,
S&P someone, work him, I then wanted to twist the knob! but there a
dozen people are calling me, I miss 90% of the calls because brain
wasn't expecting to be called after a S&P QSO, so i eventually work
someone, then my mind is set to run the freq, but of course thats not to be.
Man this was tough!
