I wish Mike and George the best, I hope the hall is completely full.

I will say, as a relative newcomer to RTTY, that getting started is a
teeny bit hard since there are nearly no RTTY signals on the air
(unless it is a RTTY contest weekend). There seems to be a fair
amount of PSK31, some AMTOR, PACTOR, and something weird that sounds
like a sick flute player. But few RTTY signals.

Bill My answer to this call CQ.  I know I have the "north East advantage, 
But when I was working out getting fsk working between my 1000MP and 
computer. I just called cq with my quad pointed into Europe and found I had 
it working when a  very small pile up occurred. But it does work.  I've been 
known to CQ into dead bands, well Call me crazy but.....

I love rtty, I have always since I heard my first Model 19 clanging away at 
W1KMV (the University of Rhode island ARC)  It has been part of the hobby 
that has changed so much for me over the years. Going from things like the 
Model 19 we restored @w1kmv,
Great TNC's like the KAM and HAL.  And now how easy we have it with Sound 
card programs etc.  The great thing about rtty is even though the way me 
make and print the tones may have changed its still rtty and it still sounds 

Cu in the next contest or give a call on 14.085 or 21.085 ya never know who 
might come back.
