Not a planned effort and the first RTTY contest at SJ2W. I made a cable for the
TI-5 interface on Friday evening and we were planning on testing it a bit. It
ended up with an effort more of DX mode type than a serious M/S effort with no
mult radio, so I believe we lost a lot of RUN QSOs because of chasing mults.
SM2LIY did most of the operating while I was out working on getting the station
ready for CQWW SSB which also included a trip to SK2AU to change the coaxes in
their tower. However I did a few hours time to time when SM2LIY needed some
rest and I enjoyed it, so we might be doing some serious RTTY in the future as

We enjoyed the excellent propagations, can't get much better than this with
these kind of SFI numbers, 15m was THE band. Hopefully the same type of
propagations show up in the CQWW SSB in a month.

It was also fun to follow the battle between our northern friends OH8A on

  1. Good work at SJ2W. As usual you had strong signals here and easy to work. Only a few other swedish stations seen here. The second time, I believe on 20m, I worked you, you got my callsign as PA4BAS no matter how many times I sent my callsign. But anyway, it was fun! 73, Bas
