I am mostly a SSB and CW operator but I think I'll try to do this one seriously sometime. I did enjoy getting into this one though, because I realized that RTTY contesting once you set up properly is actually quite smooth to operate. Equipment performed pretty good as usual. Looks like this Alpha 91 is going to stay in my shack as a good, solid backup amp... even when I get my new solid state amp soon. Seems like it just could not break a sweat just pumping out legal limit. Europe pounding in here of course with LX7I being the strongest. Worked some PYs and other SA stations on 10 meters. Band seemed moderately active. I used N1MM+ with 2Tone and MMTTY as the engines. I used AFSK with Flex-6700 and DAX. On these radios it is as clean as FSK on conventional transceivers (DSP is math and math is "perfect"). Seemed to get me through even the worst pileups. I saw some stations transmitting on 14.100 and also 14.074-078. 14.100 as far as I know is a NCDXF/IARU beacon frequency and 14.074-078 is FT8/JT65. I hope we try to remain good neighbors in the band as radiosport enthusiasts. We should try to keep those frequencies clear. 88 Ria
