2020-01-06 I participated in the ARRL RTTY Roundup 2020
This weekend was the ARRL RTTY Roundup edition 2020 and I participated. Late Saturday evening I saw a few US stations come up on 40 meters. Sunday afternoon I made a lot of contacts to mostly European stations on 20 meters. In the evening after dark the contacts from Europe seemed to stop after the first 24 hours were over but when I checked again late in the evening more US and some Canadian stations were decoded on my end and I worked them. In the end 110 contacts, a nice score for this contest. Claimed score: 110 qso points * 33 multipliers = 3630. The one that got away: I saw a station from California calling and giving state 'CA' in contacts, but he never heard me. That's the first time I heard or saw anything from one of the western US states. Update 2021-04-10: Checking on several contests and finding the score for this one: 109 qso points and 33 multipliers = 3597 points. I entered in the 'single operator unlimited, low power' category and ranked #10 for the Netherlands.
