80M Data Contest
Last evening was the data leg of the March 80m club contest. Various members had a go and for some it was the first time that they had taken part. Conditions started off very well at 20.00gmt with the RTTY part of the band being especially busy. Oddly after the first half-hour conditions changed dramatically and signals faded out. Software used varied from HRD to WinTest, although WinTest seemed to win in terms of ease of use ( it would be nice to see this software incorporate PSK31 at sometime in the future ) All stations sending in their logs seemed to report similar conditions on the band.
