W4TA Late Entry Into NAQP RTTY

Due to a last minute cancellation at DMI, we were able to participate in the NAQP RTTY contest. Operators participating on the W4TA Multi-2 category team were: Ron KP2N, Bob N2ESP, Dee N4GD, Tom NY4I and Johnnie W4TSP. The team used N1MM+ logging software which incorporates the MMTTY RTTY engine. This facilitated the ability to display real time contest statistics on our big screen TV as well as live on our web page. We ended the contest early as thunder storms approached. Claimed score for this event was 446. Thanks to all those that participated.
