Pretty good turnout last week, not quite double digits but close. Looks like maybe a few Dayton attendees were still recovering.
The upcoming weekend has a number of smaller events. One that W6SX pointed to is the “Digifest”. This is a new one on me, but it combines some unusual digital modes and has three different 8 hour segments. And you can work people on each of the different modes. 75 baud RTTY is one of them, so maybe we can have some super speed RTTY just for grins!
If you spent all weekend on cw, you can check out your diddling mode by joining us Thursday evening.
Here are the details for our usual Thursday evening (in NA) get together.
