BARTG RTTY sprint instead of CQ WW 160

Instead of the CQ WW 160, where the windstorm broke our TOP band vertical, we participated in the BARTG sprint. We did this contest mainly as the training of SO2R for the upcoming CQ WPX RTTY. Everything worked perfectly and we enjoyed the contest, working interleaved on two bands was totally exciting! We used the IC7800 + IC7600. There were exactly 900 QSO in the log and pileups were great during the first 12 hours. The other half, thanks to less participation and bad CONDX, was boring and much slower. We worked 200 x NA and 80 x JA. Anyway thank you for the nice contest and every QSO, see you in the WPX RTTY.

We could not RUN CQ WW 160m but I played a little bit with skimmer RX. I used two RedPitayas, one with beverage on 160m CW and second on 40m CW + RTTY.
