Well that was an exciting and thrill-packed 4 hours of phone sprinting over the weekend. Pleased to work many NSers, both cw and rtty types. Kudos to N6WM and the new SSB Sprint team for putting on a well organized effort. Hmmm, maybe I need to get some training from Chris on how to promote a sprint event...
Back to the subject at hand. A big NS welcome to first-timers W6KY (Art) and KK4JSJ (Lee). Lee is a QRP operator so keep your ears and eyes on the lookout.
I've listened the last two evenings for K1N on RTTY but nothing so far. They are apparently not posting a schedule due to the DQRM problem, so we'll just have to keep flexible. I would suggest if a pileup ends up near x.080 on a band we'll just have to move higher. Let me know if anyone discovers any good info about their operating plan.
Please join us at the usual time and place, and (one more time):
I'm shooting for 2 Qs with 2 different stations this week. Let's see what we can do..
Dupe rule still in effect. If you enjoy these sessions and think they help
