If you would like to learn the art of radioteletype, aka RTTY, do we have a deal for you. The ARRL is sponsoring the North American QSO Party – RTTY. Starting on Saturday July 21st at 2:00PM local time, and running for 12 hours. We will be running two stations simultaneously at W4TA in class M2.
NAQP – RTTY is a fun contest as all stations are required to run 100 watts or less. This makes for a relatively even playing field, with advantages to stations with good antennas and good operators. If you have never operated in a RTTY contest, one word of caution…it’s addictive. Once you get started, you will not want to miss the next contest. We will have mentors available to assist you with your first few QSOs. Once you get the hang of it, you can watch the QSO rate meter quickly rise.
All SPARC members are welcome to join us. Remember to bring your own headphones. If you would like to learn more about RTTY, the following web site will get you started: https://www.aa5au.com/rtty/
