Hello everyone.  W4NH will again be operating from Soco Bald (EM85jm) for
the September contest.  We will be operating limited multi on 6, 2, 222 and
432 with stacked beams, preamps and 1 KW+ TX power on all four bands.  Turn
your beams our way once in a while and listen out for us.


We are also interested in setting up WSJT (FSK441) skeds on 6 and 2 meters
starting at midnight until 8 AM eastern time.  In past contests we have had
mixed success with FSK441.  We have had some success on 6 but no success on
2.  Some of that I am sure is our fault and inexperience but we also suspect
that at least some of it is folks not showing up for skeds.  If you make a
sked with us all we ask is that you keep it.  It is a real disappointment to
get up at 4 AM to work someone you know should be a slam dunk contact and
just sit there calling and listening to noise.  Just let me know by return
email if you want to setup a sked with W4NH.  Thanks.



Jim, W4KXY

you are.  If it doesn't agree with experiment, it's wrong.
