2001 CQ/NRJ World Wide RTTY Contest
|This was my first time networking Writelog, first time
operating in a networked RTTY operation, and first time
hosting a guest op - all fantastic FUN! I had to post these photos after seeing Bob's, Raj's, and Carol's photos at

had 2 monitors for extra real estate. You can see the secondary monitor to my left with 4 or 5 bandmaps open for
