RTTY Roundup NR4M M/S HP (2015)

Idea was to have fun. John, K3TN, came to visit and joined us for a couple of hours of operating. Larry, K7SV and I 'putzed' around the rest of the time.
Had a K3 go 'belly up' with a 'voltage error' and refused to put out anything more than the 12 watts from the low power stage.  <sigh!> That was not a fun thing, so without fun, I quit for the night.

OK DX NR4M SOAB HP RTTY (2014)

Limited time due to 'life'. Thanks for all the Q's. Merry Christmas everyone.

North American QSO Party, RTTY (2014)

Need L-O-W-E-R antennas on the high bands.

CQ WW RTTY WPX (2014)

Wow! What a weekend.

Found the bands extremely friendly, so everyone found a place to operate.
There seemed to be an almost limitless supply of new stations the whole weekend.

Had two operators who had never operated RTTY at all, and one other that had done so one a limited, casual basis. Two others had never operated from the Goat Farm before, so there was there was a bit of a 'learning curve' for several ops.

ARRL RTTY Roundup 2014

Skip, KC4QP and I were just playing around for a while. Thanks for the contacts.

CQ WW DX RTTY Contest (2013)

Had 5 ops that had minimal contesting or ham radio or n1mm experience, do this operation was a bit less polished than others may have been in the past.  This said, it was lots of fun and much was learned. Conditions were great, especially on 10!  Been a while since it's been that good.  'Roasted' a remote switch box on 10 with all the CQ'ing, the power and 1.7:1 SWR on the stack.  Hey, that's the way it goes sometimes.

CQWW WPX Contest, RTTY (2013)

A good time was had by all. Plenty of ops, plenty of sleep, plenty of food, plenty of drink and plenty of propagation. Late in the weeks, LOTS of ugly problems cropped up. Most were taken care of and the couple that were left, were not too bad. Friday afternoon, I discovered a S/N problem that would have killed the whole weekend for us. The crew at N1MM solved it and had a new version out in about an hour and a half. Big thanks to them!

Makrothen RTTY Contest

Did not like what I saw re condx before the contest and after first 3 hours decided I MUST have something better to do. Worked on/off the rest of Sat and Sun. Put a total time in off just under 7 hours. Beautiful wx this weekend, so found many, more productive things to do outside. Thanks to all for the contacts!

CQ Worldwide DX Contest, RTTY (2012)

What a great weekend! Great friends, great conditions and we introduced three folks to the world of RTTY contesting. We had a pair of delightful young ladies join us. Sally G2YL who is residing in Northern Virginia put a lot of Qs in the log and provided great diversity to the usual contest weekend banter. While, Steve's NR4Ms daughter, Jennifer, has grown accustomed to all the contest 'strangeness' over the years, this weekend she actually participated in it, making a number of contacts on 20 meters.

SARTG WW RTTY Contest (2012)

Would have been nice if the SFI had been higher. Thanks for all the QSO's.
