RIG: TS590S ANTENNAS: 80, 20, 10 - fan dipole at 30' (160/80/30/20/10) 40, 15 - 1/4 lambda vertical, 4 elevated radials at 10' BIC: ~16 hours ("Official" contest time ~ 23 hours) 100% S&P Logger: N7YG Digital Engine >> CQ WPX Contest Log Version 4.3 I'm relatively new to RTTY contesting, and this is my second attempt with this contest. The good news: I more than doubled my score from last year. I'm starting to understand RTTY, and I like the laid-back attitude. (I still don't understand why so many hams add extraneous characters to their exchange!) Whereas others found 20 to be the best band, I found 40 to be so. My 40M antenna is reasonable; my 20M fixed dipole is no match even for my simple Moxon at 36' in Woburn MA. I've been concentrating on the low bands here in ME so this is not unexpected. Even a simple tribander would be much better on 20 & 15. Still -- I had fun! 73 -- Larry -- W1DYJ
