As it currently stands, there will be no ANARTS contest, and therefore no RTTY
contest in June. I find this fact to be sad. Many people think the
propagation to be bad in June, but I disagree. Near the Summer Solstace, there
are good openings over the North Pole to Europe.
As a RTTY contesting community, what can we do?
1. Operate June 12-13 weekend and pretend that an ANARTS contest is going.
No scores have been posted, nor certificates awarded for this contest in
2 years, so really nothing is different this year.
2. Encourage someone or some group to start a new RTTY contest in June. Maybe
that would be based in a certain geographical area? Pacific Rim? South
California RTTY Party? I know it is too late for contesting software support
Just thinking aloud here. What do you think? I hate to see June go by without
a RTTY contest.
