After spending the morning out with Dad taking photos of stream trains on the Saturday morning. I decided to have a dabble in the Alessandro Volta RTTY DX Contest, this was a purely search and pounce affair to get some QSOs in my logbook as contest activity from me has been somewhat poor.

Conditions seemed rather bad, rates even for S&P where terrible but never the less QSOs went into my logbook, what I was surprised at was the 3 strong signalled JAs which I managed to work first call on 20m, after a couple of hours I ended up with

  • Total QSOs: 53
  • Best Stations: JA, VE1, W1
