To contact us please write an e-mail to:   [email protected]
The Interest Group RTTY short IG-RY was created in January 2017 by a group of radio operators who saw a need for an independent organization devoted to the skill and art of radio operating, specializing in RTTY modulation.

DP7D in CQ WPX RTTY 2019 - a story by Marco DJ4MH

the Contest Gruppe Schöppinger Berg e.V. (CGSB) is the owner of HF station DP7D and VHF/UHF/SHF station (144 MHz up to 47 GHz + Laser) DF0MU. It is located on an old radar base in the north-west of Germany close to the netherlands border.
Quite all members of the HF-team are also members of our Interest Group RTTY, so we decided to take part in Multi/2 category. We also discussed about M/M, but conditions were too bad to start on more than 2 bands.
 
Strong winds did not allow us, to have all antennas at maximum level, so they were only about 17m above groud. We used 2 ICOM TRX IC7610 + PA. Software was N1MM+ with MMTTY.
Antennas: Dipole for 80m + beverages to 4 directions, Dipole for 40m + 2-El. Yagi, 2 x 4 El. Yagi for 20m to different directions and 5 El. Yagi for 15m, but 15m was almost dead, so it was also no problem, that our 10m is broken at the moment, we acknowledged no activity on 10m. On Sunday morning heavy rain started and we had major problems in RX on 40m and especcially 80m.
 
As usual we did also online score via cqcontest.net and contestonlinescore.com. We
had a very close race with S549APR (S51A) as usual in all contests, but also this time

they beat us. I think we were in front 4 hours before end of contest, but they had the better finish. The online scoring is always a good motivation.
 
Also Holgers YL, Karoline, supported us very well. She was responsible for cooking and motivation.
 
If one of the IGRY members is interested to take part in a contest (not only RTTY) in DP7D team, please contact us. We have a lot of space for caravans and of course also a "contest-hotel" with 4 beds, a fully equiped kitchen, a Barbeque corner and a toilet. So we can not only have a good contest, but also nice team facilities.
 
The 2672 QSO's are divided for the IGRY members: DJ4MH DF2SD DF1QR DL1REM DH8AF DC2YY, this will be 445 QSO for everyone.
 
This is our result:

Z60A - KOSOVO Expedition for RTTY
 
Attached picture:  v.l.n.r      Ulli-DD2ML, Hartmut-DM5TI, Robert-S57AW, Gerd-DJ5IW


Z60A :
 a powerful unprompted DX Expedition into the Republic of Kosovo by IG-RY power, a report by DM5TI Hartmut ( still in german language )

Wenn man einen Anruf bekommt, ob man nicht einen noch unbenutzten Mode (RTTY)
bei einem brandneuen DXCC

in die Luft bringen möchte, kann man einfach nicht NEIN sagen. So eine Chance, wenn überhaupt, bekommt man nur einmal im Leben. Ein kurzes Telefonat mit

Dietmar DL3DXX brachte so vage Klarheit, was an Technik mitzunehmen sei. 
Klar war auch mit den Veteranen DJ5IW und meiner Wenigkeit wird das wohl nichts Umwerfendes. Unbedingt musste da noch ein jugendliches Talent geworben werden.
Später kam dann noch Robert S57AW zur Contestunterstützung mit dazu. Das passte dann so einigermaßen.
Packen, Flugtickets, Bahntickets und die XYL von der Notwendigkeit dieses

Unterfangens zu überzeugen .. das alles in weniger als 12 Stunden.
Streß pur.
 
Angekommen im Kosovo dann die erste Ernüchterung. Lokales QRM heftigster Art.

Zwei Stationen zeitgleich zu betreiben konnte man wegen dem gegenseitigen QRM
und dem Absürzen der Amps auch vergessen. Ohne HP-Filter war das nicht beherrschbar, so die erste Diagnose.

Einen ganzen Tag haben dann DD2ML und S57AW im eisigem Wind und

Schneegestöber gebraucht um alle Drahtantenne abzubauen und die dann weiter
entfernt mit teilweise verändeter Polarisation wieder aufzubauen. Aus allem was noch

an Koaxkabeln ( auch meterweise ) vorhanden war wurden Stubs gebaut.
Hurra, die gegenseitigen Störungen waren fast weg, der Contest konnte nun mit
minimalen Störungen mit zwei Funkstationen (M2) gefahren werden.
Dafür gebührt DD2ML und S57AW besonderer Dank.

Die Tage vor dem Contest im Expeditionsmodus waren recht gut zu beherrschen.
Man konnte den Splitbereich fast nach Belieben auseinander ziehen. Stundendurchschnitte um die 150 Qs / pro Stunde und Station waren normal.
Das hat ganz gut geschafft .. nach 3 Tagen standen rund 6000 RTTY QSOs im Log.

Dann kam der Contest mit völlig anderen Bedingungen, die Stunden der Wahrheit.


Kein ( oder nur zeitweise sehr wenig ) Split war möglich. Das zusätzliche QRM und die Verärgerung der Meute wegen stark abfallenden Raten, haben uns schon vorher beschäftigt. Dazu das lokale QRM und die absichtlichen Störungen durch einige Idioten.


Wir haben wirklich mit unserem gesamten Können dagegen angekämpft. Das 80m JA Pileup war wohl das Härteste, was ich (DM5TI) je persönlich erlebt habe. Dazu noch das ständige Reingeplärre von Leuten ohne jegliche Disziplin ( Dauerfeuer ). Ich habe mir ab und zu die Zeit genommen, wenn es mir gereicht hat und habe diesen Typen mit Callnennung gesagt, was ich davon halte. ( ich hatte dafür extra ein Macro gebastelt ) Das hat meistens für ne halbe Stunde gewirkt, leider nicht länger. Eine gute Methode war auch nachdem man 1-2 Buchstaben/Zahlen sicher hatte, die mit only, only xyz aufzurufen.
Nach 6 Stunden Contest ist uns einer unser beiden microham MK2 im wahrsten Sinne

des Wortes abgeraucht ( wahrscheinlich HF ). PTT und FSK ging noch, aber kein CAT mehr.
S57AW hat als echter Computerfreak dann irgend etwas zusammen gebastelt, damit es mit der zweiten Station auch wieder weiter gehen konnte. MK2 ist leider nicht mehr
zu reparieren.
Allem in allem ein Wunder, dass trotz dieser vielen Handicaps es noch 4500 QSO geworden sind. Nach claimed Scores dürfte es auch der Weltsieg geworden sein. Für

uns Freude und auch Dank zugleich, dass wir >10.000 RTTY QSO fahren durften und somit vielen, vielen Hams in aller Welt zu einem neuen DXCC in RTTY verhelfen konnte.

North American QSO Party

The North American QSO Parties are favorites of




beginners and seasoned operators alike. The NAQPs are low-power only (no amplifiers allowed) which makes for a lot more breathing room on the bands. Small stations can generate very

effective “runs” in the NAQP


contests. Multipliers count once per-band, which makes for an exciting format, as multipliers can

be “moved” from band to band. The NAQPs allow stations from all parts of North America to be in the running for the top spots. The 12 hour format allows participants to do some great contesting, yet still have time for other activities during the weekend. Participants can enter in the single op or


multi-op categories and also have the opportunity to combine up to five separate single op scores into a team score. (Text from Webside)

IG-RY Team active as DP7D during CQ WPX RTTY Contest 2017

 

Dieter (DF2SD), Marco (DJ4MH) and Frank (DL1REM) were active from the DP7D Contest Station between Muenster and the PA border. We had some help from DC2YY, DH8AF and DL3SF. We decided to enter the M/2 category with 2 stations running on different bands, but without any multiplier station.

As the station setup was ready (thanks to DL1REM) we could start with pre-contesting beer on


Friday afternoon. After some Einbecker and Krombacher beer, we were ready to start at 0000z with 40m (DF2SD) and 80m (DJ4MH). In the morning time, we changed operators for the first

time. Conditions were not too good, but on the livescoring table we were able to see, that we did


a good job. Unfortunately we had some problem to set up our livescore and started late to post our scores at www.cqcontest.net .

Saturday afternoon we recognized that the 40m dipole had some SWR problems, we lost some

QSOs while searching the reason.


After 24 hours we had nearly 2000 QSOs in our log, this was not too bad, be we were sure to reach our target score of 10 million points, as 9,5 million is the usual high score for German M/2


teams. On Sunday we were able to bring another 1300 QSOs in the log and we reached a claimed score from 12,293,100 points – this means the second best German result in M/2 category ever. We contacted stations from 113 different DXCC-countries.

We used N1MM with MMTTY & 2tone connected to 2 x IC-756 Pro3.


We had much fun with our small IG-RY team.

Thanks to all callers and see you in the next RTTY-Contest.



Mexico int. RTTY 04. to 05. February 2017, a


short report by DF2F :


It's a nice warm up Contest one week before the CQ WW WPX RTTY. It have been nice to see that


some short DX openings were possible else on the 15m band. We can only hope that the ConDX will be better or at least the same. We'll see ...

We wishing all the best luck and we hope to catch you all on the bands !  vy 73 de Dieter DF2F DF2SD.
