I checked the cluster to see if there was any QSO party activity going on as I worked some yesterday on SSB and would try and make a few more contacts. I saw a Saudi Arabia station spotted on RTTY so I tuned to 14.085 and I was able to copy the station. HZ1PS was working the ARI contest and coming in pretty clear. I needed to crank down the RTTY filter tight on the TS-2000 because there was a nearby station that was very strong.
After he finished working a station I sent my call twice and he came back with AGN AGN so I sent it again and he came back to me! Even in the contest he was sending more than just the serial number. Here’s the MMTTY log file edited with the noise taken out.

It looks like Peter uses LoTW so hopefully I’ll get this one confirmed. Thanks for the new one Peter and very 73!
Edit Monday May 9 – Overnight my contact with HZ1PS was confirmed on LoTW. Thanks very much Peter!
