As announced at the last meeting, will be participating as W4TA in the North American QSO Party-RTTY.
This contest begins at 2:00 PM local time on Saturday July 20, 2019. The contest continues for 12 hours, ending early Sunday morning. W4TA will be operating in class M2, i.e. two transmitters will be on the air at the same time, but on different bands.
This contest is a great chance for newcomers to get your feet wet in digital contesting. WARNING: RTTY contesting is addictive, so plan to stay awhile. There is no formal operating schedule, so show up when you can and we will fit you in. No experience needed…we will provide a mentor to get you started.
With poor band conditions at the present, we will be operating primarily on the 80, 40 and 20 meter bands. With luck, 15 meters might open at start time, similar to our Field Day experience.
If you would like to operate in this contest, please send a quick email to Ron, KP2N (ronkp2nATgmailDOTcom).
