We hit the magic double digit station number last week, even though conditions were a bit iffy. And other than my major faux pas with the radio on 80, everyone did well. Welcome back to K2AL, and welcome to YV4ABR for (I think) the first time.
I didn’t see any RTTY activity this weekend, so looks like Thursday will be your RTTY fix for the week. NAQP SSB is the big one for the weekend, so if you can find a microphone, jump in!
Please join us and keep those keyboarding skills up to snuff:
