Hi Jay,

What da ya know? RTTY-ing huh? Hihi I was doing the same thing, just playing around with some software I had downloaded a while back, when I did see your call come by on the screen....N3DQU on RTTY? Testing?
I just had to say hi, and by doing so, made my 1st QSO attempt on RTTY. Didn't go too bad, did it? Was a bit shaky, but that happens during all 1st times I heard..hihi TNX fer 1st time QSO, Jay!
I will have to spend some more time playing with this software to feel more comfortable, Like you said, Digipan has spoiled me rotten....
If there is anyone who has experience working with MMRTTY,and can hand out some tips, it would be greatly appreciated...I am just wandering off into Soundcard based software world, .......
See you all in the Rumble Folks! Beware of the DOG(s), fellas!
Have fun es GL to you all ! 73 de John KC0DEB

Was it good for you John?


...Ok ok...I'll tell you how it happened...I was checking out my stuff ya
know, for the Rumble and all...and I had this MMTTY program on the computer
that I had downloaded awhile ago, thing I knew, I was calling CQ
on 20m! I really don't know what came over me! Anyways, I was calling CQ and
all, and here comes an answer back...KC0DEB of all people, a fellow psker es
070 Club member to boot! Well, I had never wrked rtty before and neither had
John, so I guess you could say we were both virgins when it came to this
mode...So what I want to know is John, was it good for you? I mean, I gave up
smoking 15 years ago, but to tell you the truth, after our QSO I really
needed a smoke! Know what I mean?? N3DQU.

Re: Rumble Teams Please Read....


Did 070 Busters challenge themselves? Or is that supposed to say challenged
by Team Bravo? Did they accept the Team Bravo challenge?

Re: Old F.A.R.T.S. update

Charlie Trice <k8ij@...>

Greetings all,
The Old Florida Amateur Radio Radio Transmitting Society, or "Old F.A.R.T.S." as we are affectionately called, announces a change of one our team members. 
KE7FN is unable to devote much time to the Rumble due to a previous family/chuch conference.  He is replaced by Jere, N4DQ in Georgia.
We also want y'all to know that we are brewing up massive quantities of Hot Chile and Baked Beans to be consumed during the Rumble.  Certainly our signals will speed to their destinations with the additional propulsion.
Good luck to all and enjoy the Rumble.
VY 73,
Chas, K8IJ

New Yahoo Group...



I'd like to invite all of you to try our Ernie Mills, WM2U "All New" Elmering Group. This group is centered on digital communications, and the volunteers that are needed to get everyone on-the-air. With the explosion of sound card technology and number of software programs available for a wide verity of digital communications, we need Elmer's to help these new digital pioneers get started. This is Ernie's whole concept. To make available an info group that provides the necessary tools (mainly Elmers!) for those hams that enjoy helping out our newest experimenters, and in many of cases the not so new! This site will  cover all modes SSTV, APRS, ASCII, RTTY, PSK31 and the long list goes on. If you have questions, come join us, we'll try and find you the answers you need. If you enjoy helping out others that are getting started, again, we need you too! In fact Ernie HIGHLY recommends that we ALL take an active roll on this group! So, what do you say, you going to try it out? Come on! Just go to:

Let's make sure that Ernie knows we're all behind him and support his efforts!

Mystery Solved!

Steve W3HF

The long-standing "mystery" team is ready to announce its
existence. We won't bother with the usual banter about superiority,
as our expected dominance of the contest will be obvious to

The World Team is composed of:

W3HF Steve (Gaffer)
TI2/AK0A Bill
ZL3JT Duncan

and in the tradition of American baseball, a player to be named

See you in the contest (and in our dust).


Island Activity


My local club will be running a special event station N1EV from an
island off the coast of Connecticut. This island is not populated and
is owned by a local maritime muesuem. It has an intact lighthouse
that was built in colonial times. John, N1OLO, was able to get the
island activated for the first time as part of the World Lighthouse
Award. The lighthouse number is LH 2712. Since it is an island it
also qualifies for IOTA with a number of NA-136.

Look for us on Sunday September 30, 2001 from about 10am to 5pm. We
will be running PSK on 20, 15 and 10 as well as SSB and CW depending
on conditions and operators.

Be one of the first to work this brand new lighthouse number and
fairly rare IOTA number in one shot.

Erika, and other DX stations . . .

What is a good GMT time for you to the west coast of the US?

I will be going to the USS Pampanito to operate PSK this weekend, and will try
to make a few Q's with DX stations, and 070 club member stations.
