Been there, Looked at it on the MP, decided NOT to go that route ... 

You'd have to cut some traces/etc ... since it "broke" my KISS rule, 
I went the old fashioned route and just use my ancient Autek MK-1
and external paddle in parallel with the PC. For me it worked FB
as I can set the MK-1 memories different from the PC software and
at different speeds. Also if one or the other dies, I can still
keep on going ... Still it would be nice to use the internal one ...

73 and Happy NU Year !

The new address for that service is:  qsl-info at datasync.com

It only serves QSL route information, not callbook addresses.

Subject: ARRL RTTY Roundup rules query
Message-ID: <9pb0SFATsEyyEwll at gi0nwg.demon.co.uk>

Hi all,

I have two quick queries about the rules for ARRL RTTY this weekend for
the multi-single category.

1. Is the multi-single category, restricted to 24 out of the 30 hours
   operating or is that only for single operators ?

2. The multi-single category has a 10 minute rule, but is that like CQWW
   SSB and CW contests where you can have a 'multi' station working only
   multipliers, but must remain on a band for 10 minutes or is it 
   just one transmitter, period ?

Myself and GI0KOW will be entering multi-single as GI0KOW, so would like
the clarification please.

Look forward to working you in the contest.
