Bands started out pretty good, then just died in the last hour. Broken rotor
limited azimuth options as I have to go outside and manually adjust the tie off
lines to switch directions. Hope to get that fixed next weekend! Still a fun
contest - wish there were more stations on with the faster baud rate.

As usual this is a fun contest. Had a very good time. I couldn't find AF and SA
and that really affected the score.
Thanks Bartg and everybody for the nice afternoon.
73, Fabi va2up

I like 75 baud. I like sprints. Wish more hams had taken Sprint to heart and not
sent 599 and other rubbish.

About 1.5 hours was all I could put in, but I sure like 75-baud RTTY contesting.
Would love to see a longer-format event to really give it a workout over a full
day's conditions.

Stayed on 15M were most of the action seemed to be. EU, NA and OC (ZM2B) were
the only continents heard here.

A 1700utc start means 0500 local Monday morning here when the bands are pretty
flat. Started by working a few EU on 14MHz, had a micro direct path to PA-land
with contacts 1 2 4 & 5 all PA stations. On 15m had another unusual short
path opening over the north pole and worked 4 G's plus and EI, no other Eu's
heard.

Except for a couple of Eu's on 14MHz, worked all stations heard.

Conditions on 15m quite good at start, surprised to work ZM2B (TU). 20m below
par here. Nothing heard from SA or Africa.

Thanks for contacts and to organisers.

Equipment: ICOM 7600 ACOM 1010 (300watts max), Hexbeam at 25ft, 40m quarter
wave vertical wire, 80m full wave loop.

SO1R! Only could work last 2 hours, bands were starting to go away here by
then.
Still, 75bd makes for a Fun contest. TNX BARTG!
