After a stressfull start where I had to reboot the computer, restore windows and MMTTY setup (had the good idea to take pictures of all the setup for radios and software few days before... tnx... lol), 15 minutes after the begining and so lost 28 minutes to do it, all the rest of the contest was find except a problem with the mouse's USB port appeared 3 times (not easy with the touch pad even in ESM mode) but easily recovered. That was my 1st SO2R contest after equipment setup ready only 1 week ago. Still some things to improve (the OM also, hihi) but I'm quite happy and satisfied for this 1st experience. I found quickly the good timing between the 2 radios with proper macros, tnx Gaby VA2UP, Ed W0YK and Randy K5ZD for usefull infos on the web. It was also my 1st assited category attempt in RTTY using RBN. Incredibly efficient, easy to find and work (as spots seen before tradionnal "hand spot" so less pile-up to break on the semi-rare DX). Propagation was not too bad for this part of the solar cycle even if it migh have been much better on 15m and 10m was closed most of the time, just one opening sunday late afternoon with W.Indies, SA and AF, backsctter with EU and even read clearly K1SFA on the screen but impossible to work it or to do a run on this band with 100w. My goal was to reach 2.450 K pts and 2000 QSO but didn't achivied it. I don't know if I had the possibility to do more QSO with this propagation as low power but I'm incredibly surprised by the DXCC and zone score reached. Tnx assisted category... so finish with +1600 QSO and 2.366 K points, not too bad for a 1st try. Lost some multiplier to hard to work with this power. It was not too hard to keep QRG during run so contesters are becomming gentlemans !!! Equipment was TS-950SD (90w) as 1st radio to do run (90% of the time), IC-7600 (90w) to work multipliers and S&P, 2xOM6BPF, ant. Optibeam OB11-5 (3e/20-3e/15-5e/10) @ 16m, DXBeam 2elts 40m @ 19m, inv. V dipole on 80m, multiband vertical HF9V with 32x20m radials, beverage 110m length for NA, N1MMclassic with MMTTY (2 DI with differents setup) + 2Tone. Finnally thanks to my beloved wife who endured me during the contest preparation and who bring food tray in the front of the station during the whole contest, that's the real assisted category lol !!!
