We had 11 entries on the 3830 page last week, and there were a couple of active stations that did not report. The bands did not cooperate much, but 40 sounded like a RTTY RU weekend! I almost noted the “new” station N4EEV until my old brain realized it was Mike, WH6YH with a new moniker. The moon phase must have been right with many of our occasional attendees all active at once. Thanks to all, and hope to see you on a more regular basis.
We had a small discussion on the RTTY reflector regarding how to get new activity. Thanks to everyone that sent ideas and comments, and if you have any comments and ideas please pass them on.
Nothing big on the RTTY calendar for a while, so if you’d like a bit of keyboard time to keep you sharp please join us Thursday evening.
