First time in a TARA contest. First time operating an RTTY contest with N1MM Logger+ and Fldigi, which I recently started using for CW contests. In previous contests, I've used the KX3 Companion app on an Android tablet for rig control, messages, and logging. On N1MM, AFSK mode wasn't working right in pre-contest testing, so I used CAT commands for messages. However, I found it takes 3-4 seconds to drop the carrier after the message text has been completely sent--which feels like an eternity in contest time--so to avoid this I had to manually terminate Tx by pressing the XMIT button on the KX3 after each transmission. Have to try to fix that before the next big RTTY contest. The morning opening to Europe and the afternoon run to Japan were both busts for me. Other than one JA--my first QSO of the contest--I couldn't decode anyone outside the US and Canada. The 10m opening and activity was a nice surprise, since I usually find it dead whenever I check it during contests. Thanks everyone for the QSOs. 73 de AI6DO
