A couple of the older Soviet satellites had a CW robot you could work.  You could even get a QSL for it.  How great would it be to work nobody in space!!73 John AF5CCSent from my U.S. Cellular® Smartphone-------- Original message --------From: DXer <hfdxmonitor at gmail.com> Date: 12/18/2018  10:00 AM  (GMT-06:00) To: cq-contest at contesting.com Subject: Re: [CQ-Contest] Robotic contest operating, why knot? I did not work the robot, but heard stories about it at the time.If it was truly an autonomous one, it sure had more embedded intelligencethan some 'human QSOs'.While not looking forward to the bands being populated by robots, I wouldhave enjoyed seeing it in operation.R&D, tinkering in ham radio jargon, should never be curtailed. Deploymentis up for discussion. Views/opinions change overtime. What looks like a baddevelopment today, may not be seen as such tomorrow.Keep things segregated if you must, but don't 'kill' it.73 de Vince, VA3VFHow cool is it to have worked nobody?????>>_______________________________________________CQ-Contest mailing listCQ-Contest at contesting.comhttp://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/cq-contest
