CQ WW RTTY …

… a new mode that I have not done before .. and still have not done at my own QTH.

I was lucky enough to team up with Cary VE4EA for a while Friday night at the start of the contest.  I stuck around and helped worked from 1900 hr local to about 0130hrs local the next day, so about 7 or so hours off and on.  Too bad we didn’t have it spec’ed out fully – would have been interesting to work more.  It is quite a different mode — no need to use a microphone — all keyboard and tuning – we had a bit of a pile-up there now and then too, so that proved interesting.  Cary kept going and got quite the score.

So, given that with RTTY — the next CQ WW SSB contest is coming up soon!  I will have to participate in that more fully 🙂

73, Dan ve4drk
