Okay, it's time to ready yourselves and your station for the upcoming TARA
RTTY Melee to be held on December 1, 2008 at 00:00 UTC. Now, I'm totally aware
that this no doubt isn't your most favorite contest, according to the recent
poll that was taken. But, it's been running since the early 1990's and
we're here to stay! Otherwise I'd be out of a job. With that in mind why don't
you try this contest out and see if we can heat the bands up a few degrees and
have ourselves a good old time while we're at it. As in year's past this does
make an excellent chance for all of you to test your station out for the
ever popular ARRL Roundup in January. So, now you see this contest really does
serve a purpose! Then if you submit your score you get the great satisfaction
of knowing you're putting Ernie, WM2U and myself to work.
All kidding aside TARA is really proud to been running this contest for our
16th year without miss any in between. It hasn't been easy but we've been
quite fortunate that a good number of you have guided us along all these years
with your support/input. And, without that it would have died long ago. (Okay,
enough of those remarks, I hear that! :-) ).
Please, join us this weekend for this contest. As I always say, we need as
many of you as possible to join in and make it a success. If I can assist any
of you in any way, shape or form just drop me an email at _ny2u at n2ty.org_
(mailto:ny2u at n2ty.org) Even if you don't plan on participating in the full
contest you're more than welcome to join in on the fun.
Oh yes...as requested by a number of you folks we have added 160 Meters to
this contest! Give it a try if you can.
