NS RTTY this Thursday
Good group last week. David, KC2WUF was our new station of the week. Welcome David, and we’ll look for you to improve your first score. I won the “Lid of the week” award for calling CQ on 160 with a disconnected receive antenna! NN7SS probably wore out his macro key trying to call me. Sorry, Burt. I promise to do better this week.
The upcoming weekend has a plethora of activity, including a few with RTTY modes. So fire up your setup and make sure everything is ready for the weekend.
