I had planned to only make a brief appearance in this test as RTTY isn't my thing. Once I got into it, however, I realized that I was having fun. (Not as much as in a CW test!...but still fun.) The only problem was keeping BIC! I think this is the first time I've managed over a thousand Qs. I heard one station on 10, but not well enough to copy. Fifteen was moderately good and seemed to be open but lacked activity. It gave me my only ZL! Twenty was wall to wall with a lot of QRM. Forty was excellent although I still can't seem to get the opening to Asia that a lot of my neighbors enjoy. Eighty was good but didn't seem to open to the west coast as well as it has in the past. Rig: IC7800 to an old Alpha 78 Ant: Dipole for 80 and SteppIR DB18E for the others.
