I have plans for this weekend but I figured I had the night hours free so I had planned on working the 160m CW contest.  But, when I found out that the TARA RTTY Melee was going to have 160m I decided that I would operate the 160m CW contest and the RTTY Melee on 160 meters.  

I won’t have the time to sit on a RTTY freq on 160 and call CQ all night, and most RTTY ops either don’t operate 160 or they won’t spend much time on 160m if it is dead.  The only solution I can come up with is if we would have a rally time when we would all check on 160m and make some quick contacts.

I would recommend that we rally on 160m at 0300Z.  That way all of the contiguous U.S. would be covered.  For the adventurous we could rally again at 1000Z.

Thoughts, opinions and ideas are welcome on this.  

73, Jim
