Special thanks to Tom (NW6P) for graciously hosting us at his station! A brand new primary feed line freshly installed (addressing the issues from Sweepstakes) just in time for the rain -- everything worked famously, and conditions were a lot better than I remembered them last year. This multi-single effort consisted of W9KKN (Bill), WX5S (Matt), and someone entirely new to RTTY and contesting, KG6DQL (Rafael.) He made a few mistakes you would expect every absolute beginner would make when faced with a >100 Q/hr rate, but we didn't let him give up, and once he got the hang of it, he was hooked. Nothing quite like learning to swim in the ocean with the sharks and it's FB to see new people getting interested in contesting. Lots of cut numbers, please copies, and very long exchanges with unnecessary information going on. Had a few macro-related issues of our own, as well more than a few flubs related to call stacking, but got the N1MM+ setup operating more and more smoothly as the contest progressed. Had an excellent run toward the end beaming to Japan on 20 meters! 73 & Thanks for all the Q's everyone! -- Bill/W9KKN
