I had some time (not a lot) this weekend to participate in the
Russian WW MultiMode Contest 2015
I updated my fldigi macros to work better for a contest as I
planned when I participated in the CQWW RTTY contest
and that improved my speed in making contacts a bit. I think I now have a
reasonable setup for the 'search and pounce' side of things (looking for
calling stations and answering them). I want to do some more improvements
on those macros and then I will do a separate posting about my contest macros
and how I use them.
I participated in a few timeslots between other things:
Saturday afternoon 20 meters was wide open and I made a number of contacts
(while still improving those contest macros). Things improved when I started
using the outdoor endfed antenna.
Saturday evening 20 meters was dead and I was left with the (small) part of
the 40 meters band I can use. I managed some contacts on 40 meters RTTY.
Sunday morning 20 meters was wide open again and I made a number of contacts.

I had to fix some errors in my log and looking back I may have scored some
duplicate contacts, so I'm not sure how high the score in the end will be.
