What a great contest this is 🙂

30 hours of non stop action and no worries about chasing or getting that mult
on another band… Just run stations like h….. and the mults will come your
way!

When things did slow down on sunday i took a sweep on the bands and worked as
many as i could of those yellow calls in the bandmap

After several years now running SO2R on RTTY I am still improving my operator
skills and that’s what it’s all about for me 🙂

I still would like to see this as a 36 hour effort like in WPX CW and SSB !!
