- I'll be in the contest starting later this evening. Single Op low
power. Simple exchange, RST and state or serial number for DX.
The setup for contesting with fldigi is pretty simple. Take some time
and read over the Help file before you jump in.
Let's see what Dick AA5VU has to say. Or maybe he is still snow bound.

try a few in the TARA later.
We had a five minute snow. It was weird to see snow falling with
sunshine. The sun won and we had no snow in Austin. Sent it over
Enjoy TARA RTTY and good luck with the macro buttons that seem
to jump around. I must be a sorry mouse driver as I can't seem to
keep the macro buttons to stay still. I have all I need in one row
and would like to be able to anchor it for contests.
Have fun in the contest!

but lacked the horsepower for them to hear me.
