Is anyone going to be running RTTY for JOTA? i am going to try if i can get everything working by then. i would love to show the kids RTTY. i will be on 40 Metrs mostly but possibly 17. we will have a 20 meter station set up with SSTV and phone so the other bands are open for me.
we will be operating W1S from Camp Carpenter in Manchester, NH
We will be using SSB plus PSK31, SSTV and RTTY from a northeast Ohio council camp. No set schedule, but will try to QSO with any other RTTY on the bands. Unless there's a RTTY contest, there won't be too many RTTY stations, if past experience holds.
Kids seem to go for PSK31 because they can see simultaneous "instant messenger like" sessions in parallel, and they identify with IM, thanks to AOL, etc. Just my opinion. A few kids have mike fright, which disappears when you are using a keyboard.
Will use my call, NX8J.
