This was the first contest after nearby lightning took out the K3, several PC’s, TV, Tivo and maybe undiscovered as of yet electronics. This was to be a burn in/trial run of the K3 after replacing the IO boards. The main shack logging PC lost two Com ports in the hit so I reconfigured to use its spares. All appeared well at contest kickoff, but it soon became clear later the PC would not accept audio, locked upped repeatedly, and after several reboots acted as if it was possessed. I had enough for the first night and in the morning and after changing out the PC and transferring the log all was “well” for the remainder except for S9 noise and intermittent internet. Happily the K3 survived the burn-in.

Enjoyed the contest and the Patriots game and others on Sunday. RTTY lets you do that!

  1. Jeeeez, John, sorry to hear of the lightning strike. As you well know, I went thru a similar episode two years ago. It can be a bummer…but glad to hear the station was quickly on the road to recovery.

    Nice also to see posted (separately) score from K1JSM. Nice going John.

    Also glad to see the return of Rick KI1G who I saw spotted often while I was chasing the DX-peditions on CW/SSB. Hope that means we will see Rick more often again.

    Anybody else QRV? — John, W1XX

  2. Follow-up on KI1G: From 3830Scores, Rick is only a smidget behind AA3B for top score HP (A). Rick is ahead
    by a mile on multipliers but so far… behind on Q volume. Not over yet. Atta go, Rick!!!

  3. OK John I’ll post it here!

    About 7 hours, I think

    In the past I’ve found RTTY contesting with 5 watts and a wire to be frustrating even though there’s something addicting about it. Just seemed that only a minority of stations had me strong enough to copy. But this time things were much better and I actually was having some fun, especially on 20 where I seemed to get heard well both in Europe and out west. Also it was the first time I really had N1MM and fldigi working together, for nice lazy logging. Good time, and I didn’t even bother to look at spots, just picked off what I could find. I even ran a few at the end. I couldn’t do anything to the south tho. No SA qsos until P49X with 10 minutes to go. And I can’t believe it, but not a single zone 8. VK4OH was workable on 40 Sun. morning, but I could not cvrack the pileup. Only KI1G for members –only about 20 mins. spent on 80m. 73, Dave

  4. First time in the WPX RTTY in a while. I was on and off over the weekend. Spent much of the time outside. When I got tired of the fall yard work, I came in and got on for a bit. I heard/worked Rick KI1G and W1DX. Did no 80 meters seeing as antennas are in a bit of disrepair, which I hope to remedy by month end.
