I love WAE-RTTY, but this year I had a very slow start. I woke up at 05:30 UTC, fresh and ready for a serious LP effort. But Murphy was with me: I discovered that, when connecting the Band Pass filters for SO2R setup, one radio was going deaf. I was not in the mood to chase and repair the wrong cables, so I went to 2m and 6 m/EME and work some nice DX via EME. Finally, after moonset, by 11:30 UTC, I managed to have my SO2R working and I rejoined the QTC game. 10 m was completely dead, 15 m was good for multipliers only, but thanks to 20/40/80m activity, I managed to reach 971 QSO-s in 28 hrs. I really appreciate the patience of DX operators to accept QTC traffic, especially with the poor propagation. Most people preferred to send QTC-s, but it went OK on my side using two decoders: MMTTY and 2Tone. The last comment: I hope that WAEDC managers will revert to old rules, to show separate results for DX and separate for EU. I just observed the 2017 rules, with mixed EU/DX categories and mixed results. See you all in the coming contests! 73, Alex YO9HP RIG: IC-7600/IC-7100 Ant 7-14-21: OB17-4/OB11-5 Ant 7 MHz: 2 el SP7GXV Ant 3.5 MHz: 2 x Inv-V Software: N1MM+, MMTTY, 2Tone Interfaces: Microham
