Got a 1/2hr late start into the contest. I focused on 20 meters and once it fell out, threw in the towel with the exception of my two low band contacts with my neighbor whom I found operating. As far as 20 meters, the band started out great but by early afternoon, some heavy QSB started set in. A few stations called and by the time I sent my report, they had fallen out and were unreadable. With those band conditions, it was rough with those exchanges especially when the other station only sent their name & state once before turning it back to me. Obviously when the band is great, this is not a problem. I had a few stations send something other than the two letter designator for their state. N1MM logger grabbed it and made it right on all occassions which was nice. I only had one station return my CQ with their full report. I did honor one request for a PSK31 contact with WB2HTO, who needed Alaska on that mode. Some very nice signals from the NE today. Lots of great operators and I worked several new. RTTY is one of my favorite modes and it's great to see all the activity during these contests. Thanks for the contacts and sorry to those I missed. 73, Phil Icom 756PRO (100 watts) Mosley TA-34-XL at 43 feet N1MM Logger (MMTTY engine)
