Hope everyone's voice has recovered from the weekend. Considering the poor
conditions you probably didn't get a serious workout anyway! There was some
activity on Sunday in the RTTY Rookie Roundup even with the poor conditions,
so there are some new RTTY contesters being grown. This weekend looks pretty
thin, but Hawaii and Ohio seem to have the bands to themselves for their QSO
parties. Solar numbers look pretty dismal right now so I hope something
changes real soon.
If you'd like some RTTY practice this week, please join us on Thursday
evening (NA time). Pretty good turnout last week, and a big welcome to
WA0LJM who brought a new multiplier to some lucky participants! Looks like
K7SV hasn't lost his touch for the diddle mode!
