RE: [wsjtgroup] NAHSMS contest question
- Hi Bob. The contest was originally slated to run to 0000 hours and I think
the text read "to Tuesday evening". But we decided to extend it to allow
people to work through the evening, especially the western stations, and I
guess the day got changed to Wednesday, but no one noticed that it should be
changed to morning.
Anyway that is as best I can recall what happened.
