Was able to operation on and off throughout the weekend with about half my total time on Sunday. First time working this contest and I was totally unprepared for how to use the QTC interface. Learning that on the fly was quite costly. I clearly don't know how to properly get the received QTC's from the digital interface window to the QTC entry window. Once you get an error in that table, you are really screwed even after getting the "fixed" version of software. Correcting the jumbled mess I created on each of my received QTC sets took me 45 minutes. Just avoided receiving QTC's after that. Had one EU station respond during the correction of QTC's in complete frustration with the SW and just say forget it after several repeats. I felt his pain and lived it. I know I left a bunch of QTC points on the table. I'll be better prepared the next time! I did get to prove out some antenna and station improvements. I wish my operating times aligned better when the EU stations were workable. So, I ended up with mostly domestic Q's. Looking forward to the next time.
