I hope everyone had a great New Year celebration. Also I trust those of
you in the deep freeze found a comfy spot! Last week had quite the
turnout given the end of the year. New stations W2TT along with NCCCers
W1RH and W9KKN were in there with a plethora of our regular stations.
This was the first RTTY Sprint ever for W1RH, and W9KKN must have been
back home /9 even though he's now an NCCC member. Welcome guys and hope
we'll see you again!
This weekend is the first serious RTTY test of the year: ARRL RTTY
Roundup. So let's make sure your diddle machines are ready to go.
Please join us Thursday evening and give everything a checkout. Yes the
format is a little different but jump in and we'll make sure you are
ready for a successful weekend.
