This is not intended to be an “etched in stone” indication of how to operate a RTTY contest, so please don’t take it that way! Whatever works the best for you, is what you should do, as long as it allows your participation to be fun! These hints were obtained from RTTY contesters, world wide, and only reflect how they try to make their operation more efficient! The more efficient “we” make our contest exchanges, the more efficient we make it for all involved! Band conditions certainly play an important part in the exchanged data, so establishing a “different” buffer could make your exchange more efficient in “not so good” band conditions!
