KM5PO - Worked K5CZD, called W5SNX and heard WW2R (local)
KI4BYV - heard W5SNX - Welcome Les from FM15!
WA5UFH - Worked KN7NR, heard KM5PO, W5SNX, N5OSK and also WW2R at end of RH
and one more new one:
K0OZ - heard CQ from WA5UFH on 10/25 6m RH - Welcome Joe from EM37
We welcome KG4OLG, KI4BYV and K0OZ. If any operators wonder about the
value of RH, all three report getting their receive going and their 1st
decodes with the help of all the pings flying around. We look forward
to seeing them on the TX side as well!
Suggestion to group. Tip and I could well have finished QSO last week
but we both broke off to QSY to 6m at end of 2m hour. I was sending RRR
at the time. If you are in QSO on 2m, you should feel free to continue
into next hour to complete. Certainly continue 6m QSO after 1600z to
complete. My feeling is RH is for learning and fun and you should count
any qso initiated during RH so do not "pull the plug" at the end of hour.
If any new operators wish to join in tomorrow's activity periods, you
may review RH procedures manual on WA5UFH's site at:
Hope all have good weekend and will see many in the AM for 11/8/03 RH
