Another contest week-end shared with various family duties. Propagation seemed
to be pretty good and the rigs and other equipment held up well. Still
suffering for lack of a real 80m antenna but hopefully that will be fixed
shortly and certainly by next season. Was great to get openings into JA on 10,
15 & 20m and to work VK7KT at the death for a double mult. Great to also
work the usual suspects, many on all 4 or 3 of my active bands. This may also
have been the first WW contest where I worked more EU than NA stations -
including many many more on 10m but that was likely more a reflection of my
available operating time.

I hadn't given this contest much thought beforehand. At the last minute I
decided to go single band 10 meters. I was on call at work so knew I probably
wouldn't be able to do a full effort.

The contest starts at 9 PM local time so ten meters was not open. The band
opened early Saturday morning just past sunrise at around 1230Z and was very
good into Europe for a couple hours when my phone rang and I was called into
work around 1500Z which is prime-time Europe for me. I didn't get back until
1830Z but the band was still open to Europe at 1900Z! After Europe went away it
got a little slow so I took a nap in case I got another call for work.

I had just sat down in the chair and to look for JA's in the afternoon when I
got called to work again to the same hospital but on a different problem. So I
missed the bulk of the JA opening Saturday but when I returned, the band was
still open to Asia 'til about 0130Z which is about an hour and half past

The band opened early again Sunday morning, but unfortunately a line of
thunderstorms came barreling through just after sunrise so I had to shut down
for an hour. After that, Sunday's opening on ten was even better than Saturday
despite the SFI being only 140. It's funny that we've seen higher SFI numbers
lately but poorer conditions on ten than what we experienced this weekend. Once
the weather cleared, ten was fantastic Sunday and a lot of fun. I didn't get
called into work so I was able to spend the whole day at the radio. The runs
into Europe were great and in the afternoon, the runs into Japan were the best
I can remember despite it being Monday morning there.

I kept eyeing the USA record for 10 meters and I think I may have had a chance
had I not missed 5.5 hours of prime operating on Saturday and the hour for
weather on Sunday. It would have been close - maybe next year! I still think
it's a decent score for part-time.

The highlight of the weekend was snagging 4S7DFG on 10 CW and 4S7FRG on 12 CW
late Sunday morning for new band countries.

This is a second tier contest that should be right up there with the big RTTY
events, but isn't.  What it has going for it are the Expert/48/30/6 categories,
lots of mults and being at the March equinox.  On the other hand, it is
remarkably user-unfriendly with the 5 minute rule, the 3 hour off minimum, no
low power category  and conflict with the RUDX.  Plus BARTG could drop the 599,
as they do with their Sprint.  This is a contest with a lot of potential if the
sponsors wanted to bump it up a notch or three.

Usually I go light on this contest, but this time I had some station testing to
do and my other weekend plans fell through, so I used up my whole SOAB 30 hours,
although it was more like 22 hours before being inflated by the 3 hour off

My main concern had to do with running a RCKskimmer in very close quarters.
After previously trying some other schemes, I put a splitter in the RX antenna
loop on my FT-2K, dividing the signal between the FT-2K and the skimmer TS940S.
 Each signal is down about 3.6 dB, 3 dB due to the split and 0.6 dB from
insertion loss.  Most of the time I didn't miss the 3.6 dB, but if I needed it
back I could just pop the RX antenna button OFF to send all the signal to the
FT-2K. I did that maybe 8 times in the contest.  Overall this worked well and
is the best method I've come up with yet.  It's still a compromise situation.
I think for some contests I might locate the skimmer station elsewhere and
Telnet it back to my QTH.

One guy refused to work me.  We had a previous busted QSO (from my POV) due to
QRM and when I tried again later he completely ignored me.  A similar thing
happened to me in the WPX-RTTY last month.  I wish word would go forth to all
nations and peoples that dupes don't hurt you in the computer age.  Often they
save you points.

Another guy worked me but NILed me out of his log because I wasn't sending my
exchange in the correct (according to him) format (Me: 599-123-1234  123-1234
had a macro for this, which means he was locked and loaded and just waiting for
miscreants like me to cross his path.  Then BAM! he got me right between the
eyes.  I guess I made his day but didn't know whether to laugh or cry so I

With the 2 element exchange, I made heavy use of the three decoding windows. On
rare occasions I grabbed the call from one, serial from another and time from
the third.  This amused me for some reason.  I noticed lots of requests for

The bands were good, but 40 had a lot of distortion Friday night.  This is
fairly common at my QTH in the evening.  I fight back with 2Tone set to Flutter
and using a wider MMTTY profile based on the Fluttered/Multipath profiles (these
are essentially the same under the hood) plus a lot of AGN AGN?.  I slept during
the night but wish I had stayed up to catch the late night 20m deep Russians in
this contest or the RUDX.

Thanks for the Qs.  I had a good time in spite of myself.  For me the next RTTY
big one is the WW in September.  Exciting times await.

This was a slow one for me, with a lot of time digging out print.  More bad than
usual and unfortunately a couple of dupes - sorry :/ Got distracted saturday
afternoon by checking out the RU DX contest looking for new ones.

EU was good saturday morning and maybe for the first time worked more DX thank
US, but perhaps that was the nature of the BARTG contest - first time for me.

Thanks for the QSOs...

I planned on a full 30 hours but things got in the way.  Still, my best score to

operators that might other wise have been operating RTTY.  Both good contests.

I started out on 10 meters Saturday morning and figured I might stay there until
the band died. We it just kept on going late into the afternoon.W When I went to
15 and then 20 I realized that I had a problem with the antenna switch.  In
effect I had only a ten meter antenna. We had 60 MPH guts a few days ago and I
suspect that the gusts damaged the control cable except for the 10 meter one.

I would have done a couple more hours but for the 3 hour break rule. 30 minutes
is generally accepted in other contests. Suggest an SOE6 category for those of
us who like sprint durations, or otherwise can't put in full time.

I don't see the logic in the exchange:
599 - meaningless in computer sent messages
TIME - redundant, as Cabrillo format automatically lists time.
How about something meaningful, like NAME, STATE, SHOESIZE, etc...

The contesting announcement says something like:
".....if you don't like the rules, don't participate"
Probably won't next time....

Wasn't feeling good at all friday but 2 things contests can do are open the
bands and make you feel better! Got some sleep friday night and saturday
morning interesting conditions on 10 and 15 kept me going. I was getting good
rates and I was finding all kinds of mults for a change. I thought to myself,
ok forget you're sick and get on with it here's a chance to the world record.
>From that moment on I knew I wouldn't rest until the goal was met. I tried to
manage time on as well as I could but propagation did most of the job. We have
such bad propagation here that when we get it we better capitalize on it. So
lucky me it seems like this could be a new record wow, unless John SKA
scratches off 1 million points after correction ha ha! Hope not!

Officially put in 30 hours but more like 24 hours as I was a little too casual
and there were lots of one- or two-hour breaks along the way. Had a good time
-- high bands were very strong on Saturday and pretty good Sunday. The
exception was 20M which I mostly skipped on Saturday and found disappointing
when I did spend time on 20M on Sunday.

Left the yagi at 27 feet AGL as it was breezy at times over the weekend. That
can hurt me on the European path unless conditions are truly wide open at they
were on 15M(then it doesn't seem to matter quite as much). Missed any VK
activity if there was any -- sure could have used the mults.

Was also disappointed in 40M in the hours I was on as Europe wasn't pounding in
as it has lately, and there was no grand opening to JA other than some sporadic
activity for a few mults before daybreak on Sunday.

First time breaking through 1M in this contest. I see VE7SZ and VA7KO had
really great weekends -- good going guys!

Thanks to BARTG for the contest, and to all for the contacts.

Conditions seemed OK, but not great. I haven't operated this contest for several
years, did it seem like participation was down? Had to maximize 6 hours and
chose 10,15 and 20. Cannot believe I missed Oceania for 6th continent. First
time ever doing the 6 hour with one radio since there was a 5 minute band rule.
Not sure I managed the time and band selection properly. With SO2R you don't
worry as much about time management as you are usually on 2 bands all the time.
Thanks to all for the Qs. Now it is time to tear down and reconfigure/network
the station with WIN 7 computers.

Another casual effort...an enjoyable way to relax after a tough week at work!
Equipment is a Kenwood TS-570DG running 100 watts to a GAP Titan vertical on
10/15/20 m and dipoles at 35 ft on 40/80 m. I started RTTY contesting in
January 2013 and I am having a fun time.

I had a lot of commitments this weekend so I elected to do SOAB-6.  The 5-minute
rule prohibited me from using SO2R, but to tell the truth I didn't really miss

Conditions were super on both 10 and 15 Saturday morning with lots of long-path
to Asia much earlier in the day than one would expect.

I spent almost 4 hours on Saturday morning and the remaining 2 hours late in
the day on Sunday.   But conditions on Sunday was just so-so on 15 & 20 and
poor on 40.

I had just installed version 3.0 firmware for my IC7800.  This allows me to
actually automatically reset my RIT to zero after logging an
"off-frequency" caller!  Before, I would often forget to manually
reset it to zero after logging a station while I was running.  N1MM also reads
the RIT setting of the radio and displays it at the top of the band-map.  My
other radio is a K3 and of course it already has this feature.

spotty propagation. Highlight was working ZS on 40 meters Saturday night.

SO1R! Thank you, BARTG, for having a fun contest each year.

Despite freezing rain, my fiber-glass tubing encased SteppIR at 32', over top
of my roof, worked fine right through the 2+ inches of precipitation we had in
Charlotte, NC during the contest time period.
During the 29.5 hours that I either called them or they called me, I worked:
total, I worked 35 JAs in a row, during the 2300Z to 0030Z time, when I
finished my best BARTG effort.
Thanks again BARTG, and all the world-wide operators who took time to
call/answer my calls. And especially thank you to all the Ukraine stations, who
risked a lot to send out their free signals to the world during their time of
troubles (I wish them all well, and safety.). 73,  Ben - WB2RHM

One of the things I keep my eye constantly on in this contest is the mult sheet
- particularly the Call Areas Section. Those are the 'easy' ones and really do
pay big dividends towards the end.  DX was fair on Saturday but really poor on

The activity slows down a lot I think on Sunday mainly because of the
format/class choices in that they offer 6hour classes (3 of them) so that
regionally I guess you can focus just on open times a band in your area. So for
those that choose to go Full Monty, slugging it out for the full 30 hours, it
really becomes a job on the second day.

I could see 1M points just over the horizon on late Sunday but there were times
when changing bands etc. just could not produce any action. (Primarily a CQer at
that point as a band sweep would result in no new stations that I had not
already worked.  I was hoping to do a 1K plus QSO total but that requires a
rate that just wasn't there here.

Of the 40 JA mults (40m-10m) I only missed 6 & of the 50 USA mults
(80m-10m) I missed 5. 80m was very noisy and thus not too pleasant to dwell

The DXCCs count was 52 with most of the activity coming from EU/JA outside of
the USA. One of the Call Area Mult counters is from VK and I heard not ONE of
them - this is like the 3rd year in a row - perhaps BARTG should think about
replacing them with someone else - ZL perhaps?

Lost only a couple of 'usable' hours with a Granddaughter's T-Ball
"game" attendance but the sunshine and laughter were good for the
