This was a last minute remote operation from NX6T's "NashVille" QTH in Fallbrook, Ca. I ran an Elecraft K3 into an ACOM 2000a amplifier dialed back to 550 watts for continuous operation. Antennas included: a 3-el Stepp-IR, 2-elements on 40 and an Inverted Vee for 80; all at 13Mh. N1MM+ provided superior logging assistance, as did the remote operation software. Overall, internet latency was NoT a problem; most people probably never figured I was running remote. While the SFI was low, so was the noise level in Fallbrook. Because I was running remote I chose to RUN frequencies 99% of the time. What amazed me this year was how many stations would work me and then immediately call CQ on my run frequency. Or, they would hear me work a station and then immediately call the station I just worked, oblivious to the fact that it was MY run frequency. Another concern is that 14.100 (the NCDXF beacon frequency) was JAMMED with stations. What? You didn't know 14.100 was a beacon frequency? WAKE UP folks! I was amazed by the number Canadian CF & CG callsigns; there seemed more than actual VE & VA calls. Overall, I was disappointed by the lack of unusual weird prefixes, altho there were are a lot of unique 2x1 style calls. This RTTY contest was certainly a LoT of fun. Is WQ6X in your log?
