 Contest Managers Report:

From a personal point of view, the Contest progressed very well, and it was a happy Contest Manager by the time the Contest came to an end. The reason for my happiness was, and is, that I had achieved my personal highest score in any Contest to date. The fact that I was using the Society Callsign of VK2SG did not detract from any joy felt. The happiness any Contester feels when passing a previous best score is a good indication that one can enjoy Contests on a personal level, you do not have to be the outright winner.

While on the subject of VK2SG, I wish to acknowledge the owner of this call for many years, Sid Molen. Sid very well known throughout the Contesting and DX World, and was a Co-founder of Anarts. Sid has passed on now, but having his old Call as our Society Call is enabling us to keep his memory going. We are doing this by doubling the QSO points for any contact, during the Contest, with the Call VK2SG. It is hoped over the coming years that other members of Anart’s will use this call.

I am very pleased with the number of Australian Stations taking part this year. The number of logs received from VK Stations does not necessarily reflect this, however many more were heard during the Contest period.

Here in Australia, at least in Sydney, propagation during the Contest period followed a familiar pattern. During the early hours of the Contest, many overseas Stations could be heard, however, not too many could hear the VK’s. As the Contest progressed, more overseas Stations began answering CQ calls from VK Stations, or a call to another Stations CQ call. This depended of course on the type of Antenna one has, in my case a simple G5RV. Must get that Beam back up and working soon. Propagation remained at a fairly steady rate right through the Contest. I want to point out here that in Australia the legal power output for RTTY mode is 120 Watts.

The number of logs received by electronic means has increased dramatically over the last two Contests. This year saw an even bigger percentage of logs received by this method. In fact the Postmaster at Toongabbie mentioned the fact that we did not receive many postal logs this year, but was not too surprised when told the number of E-mail logs to hand. The percentage is about 80 percent E-mails.

I must mention here the terrible tragedy that occurred with receiving E-mail Logs this year. The server for addressing E-mail logs was taken off-line about two weeks after the Contest. Although the collapse of the parent Telecom Company was anticipated, other Telecoms here had promised to keep the server on-line until a new buyer could be found. With this in mind it was decided to stick with the same E-mail address, as most contesters knew it. Things did not work out that way and my Server one.net.au went off-line. It is quite certain that some logs went astray when this occurred. Anarts apologises to any Station that sent a log by E-mail and their Callsign does not appear in the results listing. My new Server is a part of the Australian Government Telecom Company Telstra, the likliehood of going off-line is therefore remote.

Approximately 20 percent of logs were received from first time Contester Stations. The vast majority of these Stations did not have a copy of the Rules/Points Table. As these Stations did not have contesting software either, they were received here without summary sheet, points claimed, or any other details. I therefore processed these logs. Working ones way through 30 odd logs was to say the least not my cup of tea. For next years Contest any log so received will by treated as a "Check Log", unless the sender specifically states he/she is a new Contester and requires help. It could be that the Rules and Points Table was not freely available to these Stations. We shall try to make these more readily available for next year’s contest.

Regarding our new rule on the Postage and Handling fee commencing with this year’s Contest. Out of 162 logs received, only 13 Stations sent the required fee. These Stations will receive by Post the full package of any award they may have won, plus hard copies of this report, next year’s rules, a point’s table, and Contesters comments. Those Stations that submitted their logs by E-mail will receive this information via the Sender Address. It is not possible to send Awards by this method. If you have changed your E-mail address please let me know. Those Stations that submitted their logs by Post and did not send the Postage and Handling fee will not be sent any information. The results will however, E-mailed to various Internet addresses that cater for Amateur Radio Contests, and will also be transmitted on Packet Radio addressed to RTTY@WW and CONTEST@WW.

The Anarts Committee feel that introducing the Postage and Handling fee has been successful regardless of the number of Stations taking up this option. It has kept our costs down to a manageable level and has shown that our Contest can be kept running this way. If any Station wishes to receive their award, along with the other information, you can still do so by sending Five (5) United States Dollars to Post Office Box 93, Toongabbie, New South Wales 2146, Australia. Australian and New Zealand Stations please send Three (3) Australian Dollars.

Finally thank you to all Stations taking part in this years Contest, thank you for making it possible for this Contest to continue. Hope to see you in Anarts WW RTTY Contest 2002.

73’s to all

Colin Davies, VK2CTD, President and Acting Contest Manager A.N.A.R.T.S.

 Contesters Comments:

  • HB9DOD: Bad conditions on Saturday or was that only in HB9... Nice test, couple of new ones, but not as good as last year... CU in 2002... de Tom.

  • W2JGR/: I have always enjoyed this contest and hope that ANARTS will continue to sponsor it.

  • W2YC: No propagation on 10 metres, noise level too high on 80 metres. Hope better cdx next year.

  • ZS2BWB: Your rules indicate a possibility of working six continents. According to the ARRL, in their publication entitled "DX Countries List" they include Antarctica as the seventh? I have thus, used 7 Continents in my modest score. I was only able to participate for short periods during the test but, because of the sportsmanship and camaraderie that existed, will make a more determined effort next year. Thank you for all the hard work, which must go into staging so pleasant an event. Ken ZSBWB

    Reply from Contest Manager: Thanks for the comment Ken, but the rules state 6 Continents only, I had to re-adjust your claimed score. Though the 2002 rules are already printed, I will bring this point up at the next Committee meeting, but feel sure it will remain at 6. Colin VK2CTD.

  • DL6JZ: Thank you for this funny contest. Conds on 10m were very poor, so I could not reach my goal of 600 QSO’s. See you next year.

  • W4UEF: Thanks to contest sponsors, to all who gave exchanges and to all who tried to get my exchange and did not succeed, and to W4YDY for my only five bands.

  • YU7AE: Nice contest but poor condx on 10 and 80m here. 73

  • OK2PCL: My fiev contest, thanks for the contest, meet you in 2002.

    I think fiev must mean first... VK2CTD

  • WA8RPK: Didn’t seem to be too many people on I could hear, but didn’t put that much time into it when all I could hear was the ones I already worked. So I went fishing on Sat and tried to get with it on Sunday. But again not to many new Stations, I always hear other ones in there, but just can’t seem to pull them in. I turned the beam, but not go, only to VK’s, I looked but no hear. Did get a couple of storms, not too bad, shut down and waited it out. Tnx to all that worked me and will be looking for you in the next one. 73.

    I sympathise with you Tom, with a legal limit of 120 watts it’s always like that for most VK stations. This end I could hear a lot of VK’s trying their hardest. Hope you got a lot of Fish!!! Colin VK2CTD.

  • OH2LU: Thank you for another run of my favourite RTTY contest since 1987. Hope to see as many VK stations also next year. I tried E-mail, but was bounced back!

    You and others Tapani, can only say sorry and hope we do not lose Bigpond. Colin

  • VE7GL: My first Rtty contest.

  • JH8KYU/1: I created a sound card interface on 6/10 and participated in this contest to test it on the same day.

  • LU8ADX: Enjoy much this contest. I hope to return to make it again next year. Thank you 73’s DX.

  • N2LEB: The bulk of my activity was on 15 and 20. 10 metres suffered from summer conditions here, and I only managed three contacts, mostly transequatorial to South America and the Caribbean. It was a similar story on 40 and 80 - high noise level and limited activity, but I did manage 10 QSO’s, including one KH6, some 5,000 miles from my QTH. I didn’t even attempt 80 after hearing the QRN on 40, especially given my antenna - either a dipole or I trans match my yagi. I managed only one VK contact in Zone 30, but did work a couple of ZL’s and a FK. Thanks again for sponsoring the contest. I enjoyed it and look forward to next year - it is my "Start" to summer her, so I really wait for it.

  • SN7N: Thanks for the great contest, I like it very much and had a lot of fun. See you next year.
