A small group last week, I’m guessing a few spent more time practicing for the WPX. Welcome to N5KB who dropped by and made a few Qs.
Just a friendly reminder: Pause just a bit after the last exchange before calling to give the ACK message (or the frantic NR?) a chance to get through. And if the path to your QSO partner seems a bit weak, give him a fighting chance with
a repeat of at least the S/N. All the funny things that happen in the ether seem to happen at the most inopportune moments!
The upcoming weekend looks to be all CW all of the time with the ARRL DX CW test. But if you still need a digital fix before the weekend, please join us Thursday evening.
