K2-100 at 40W Hustler whips. Wow, I haven't done a RTTY contest in 3 years. It's quite a different kind of contest when you don't have the antennas you once had. So I plugged away for 16 hours and worked everyone who could hear me. Even got some EU and a ZL on 15M. SA was difficult for some reason. The big gun stations in Argentina could hear me though. 15M was the money band all weekend. 10M didn't work out too well. I was relegated to nearly all S&P as I couldn't get a run going for any length of time. I had several runs of one Q and one that produced 10 in about 10 minutes. Elecraft recommends no more that 40 watts on RTTY mode but I kept a fan nearby to make sure it didn't overheat. It would have been pointless to be assisted since I can't hear very well with limited antennas. Not sure if I'll bother with the ARRL DX contest next weekend. Need a better antenna if I'm going to try to work DX. Thanks for the Q's. 73 Paul NG7Z
