Ian G3WVG and Nigel G3TXF operated in the new Multi-Two category from the RRDXA contest station in Santana, Madeira. Our usual favourite logging software WinTest gave us a big surprise. Under the new Multi-Two rules in the IOTA Contest both stations can operate as RUN stations (previously one of the two stations had to be a MULT station). Once the contest started we were expecting WinTest to feed from the same serial number sequence to both RUN stations. This did not happen. One Run station was given ODD serial numbers and the other was given EVEN serial numbers. We only noticed this a few minutes into the contest and wondered "what the hell is going on with the serial numbers?". Nothing we could do at this stage other than just carry on with the almost comical ODD and EVEN serial number sequencing. This certainly gave rise to more than usual "what was your serial number?" queries on both CW and SSB. We are most grateful to the RRDXA for the use of their contest station on Madeira and to Ricardo CT3KN for assistance with the CR3G callsign. 73 - Nigel G3TXF
