Hi Hank,

I can remember the barely legible logs that I had to transcribe after the contests.  Sometimes that's where the dupe sheet came in handy.  I might be able to make out the call there, if not in the log itself.  Occasionally, I could remember the call, especially if it was well known.  Of course, if it was well known, maybe I didn't bother duping it, especially in the SS with only one QSO per station.  I could trust my memory back then.  

Then you had to mail it in and who knows if it got there?  

Ken, AB1J

That brings up the 1956 (OR '57) ARRL CW Sweepsteaks.  I operated from WØANA, University of Denver ARC, Single Op, Single Transmitter (it was a Johnson Navigator, I seem to remember), and separate NC-300 (probably) receiver.  I remember placing 2nd in Colorado, to my amazement!Logging was on paper.  Our school didn't have a computer until '59, it was a Burroughs 1K memory, with tube flip flops and memory banks.Should we go back to those daze?I'd bet that would reduce the number of contestants.And, maybe All dozen of us could ALL work each other.  :)72/73 de n8xx HgQRP >99.44% of the timeOn 8/12/2018 12:47 PM, ktfrog007 at aol.com wrote:>> I'd add in transceivers and SSB.
