*I also worked Asiatic Russia, but coppied the call sign wrong, so the multiplier was not counted. :-(
I ran Search & Pounce (S&P) the entire contest.
Due to the crowded bands, I ran most of the contest with the receiver's bandwidth set to just 30 Hz.
There was no ringing, DSP artifacts or audio distortion of the CW signal at this narrow bandwidth. AND THERE WAS NO QRM!
The ALT-512 interfaced to my computer through a single USB cable.
Its built-in Sound Card elimnates the need for audio cables between the radio and the computer.
After defining the Radio as a "Kenwood TS-2000" in the Win-Test logging software, the radio was immediately recognized and all features functioned just fine:
So basically it was Plug-n-Play. "Piece of Cake!"
