Funny I know, N5UW, "Clif" very well. He has many DXCCs, but not on RTTY.
His Dxing is from the old school, no clusters, busted calls, etc. Clif
worked 75m DXCC with a modest antenna and 100 watts about a year ago. He is
a pretty good volunteer in the OKDXA and QRP ranks.
I have tried many times to get him interested in RTTY and digital modes.
But so far the bug has bit him.
N5UW is mainly a CW kinda of guy. After DXCC on 160m and 75m Clif is now
burning up the airwaves on 6m. After that I maybe I can convince him to do
some RTTY DXing and contesting?
Don't why I commented on this, but thought it was funny to see his call
mentioned. Maybe I can use this to get him going on RTTY?? :-)
Sorry I missed the contest this weekend, but I am moving the shack. Sure
sounded like a good one to be in!
