Comments SARTG-WW-RTTY Contest 2004

JM1NKT. This contest was in good condition, so I could enjoy the wonderful contest

NT2A. Thanks for a nice contest I will be back next year.

M0AFZ. Great fun and I love the split operating times ! Good conditions generally.

NO2T. Love the format of 8 hours on and 8 hours off. Keep it up.

SK4RY. Första gången jag ej använder något "modem" utan enbart ljudkort. Premier med MixW2, fungerade förvånansvärt bra, utmärkt demodulator. Dock vissa handhavandefel från mig, alltid svårt med ny programvara. Svårkörd test den här gången, nyckfulla konditioner både dag och natt. Som alltid en fantastiskt kul RTTY-test, bästa 73 de Charle SM4RGD.

KF9YR, I diden`t have a lot of time to operate and 20M propagation wasen`t great when I did it, but the contest was fun and i am looking forward to the next one.

F6IRF, First attempt in this contest. Thanks to the contest original 3 periods format.

Everything went extremely well, especialy taking into account my modest setup. The weekend surprises: EM1HO, DU7/G4DUM, HR1RMG, KP2D, ZP5DBC.. the 5 banders C4C, SM5FUG, SM6CNN, SK4RY. But once again did not manage to find/hear GU0SUP on any band…(Phil I am damned). My new station setup IC-756PRO II, 400W PA, Optibeam OB6, N1MM logger and MMTTY 1.65.

IZ0EHL/0, Tnx for a fun contest during holidays.

PI4CC. Nice contest and we got a lot of fun. Nice to dig out EM1HO on 80M. The conditions wasen`t to bad. For a setup take a look at our page.

GM4FDM. This was less of a Contest and more of an endurance test from 56 north. Poor conditions did not generate big pilups.

Nice contest - thanks for organisation it - pity abouth the condx.

W3FV. My apology to those who called and did not receive an answer from me, especially on 40/80M, Forced to shut down several times due to lighting thunderstorms and heavy QRN.
