Part time entry in the EA RTTY contest

I’ve just completed a part time entry in the EA RTTY contest – It runs from 16:00z to 16:00z over the weekend so I did a few hours yesterday evening on 20m and then put the wireless back on again much later in the night and was surprised to work quite a few Ws and JAs between 21:50z and 22:45z  I didn’t know which way to point the aerial and ended up leaving it facing north.

This morning I just did a couple of hours on 20m and 15m and returned to the contest two hours before the end where I did another spell on 15m and made a few QSOs on 10m as well.  You can see a full log analysis here.

For just a part time entry, I did reasonably well with over 330 QSOs in the log.  Here’s the obligatory map.
