CQ WPX RTTY 2021 in the books!
This time only SO20m HP Classic. LX7I is going throgh a huge overhaul process plus COVID-19 conditions made it impossible to run a Multi-OP effort.
I decided to give it a try on 20m and I am happy with the result. Without classic (24h rule) DX Cluster and 3-4 more hours of operating I guess 1500 QSOs would have been possible.
As we moved to Flexradio already last year, the remote setup was pretty easy to accomplish. It worked 100% flawless – just like beeing on site!
This picture is taken the night before the start. I was still undecided to go “classic” or regular SO 20 HP.
This is the main computer running N1MM and SmartSDR on two 27 inch curved displays. RTTY needs a lot of real estate!
In case you are wondering who is splattering 4 KHz wide: OG66X Thanks!
The third screen on a seperate computer is controling the amplifier and antennas.

If I had a free wish for LX7I – it would be a south america stack!
ONE QSO with SA propably long path!
The cometition was very close for #1 world, but I could improve from P2 to P1 after log check!
The gap between P1 and P2 is less than 2% score!
Thanks to Philippe puting this wonderful station together.
Thanks to all the callers and sorry for the ones I could not dig out of the noise.
