Usually I have to wait to the final days of a big expedition, but I saw W1XX’s spot on 40 cw this morning and I actually worked them with 10w to a wire.  6:40 local. Huge signal, great op, and the pileup was behaving.     If I can, anybody can!  tnx John–

Contest Season Kickoff Meeting @ W1XX Saturday Oct. 13
Contest Season Kickoff Meeting @ W1XX Saturday Oct. 13 avatar

The fall/winter contest season kicked off last weekend  with the CQ WW RTTY Contest.  It’s just the start with the CQ DX SSB the end of the month and Sweepstakes in November plus several more to follow.

To energize activity, our November CTRI club meeting is this coming Saturday, October 13, hosted by W1XX at his South Kingstown hilltop QTH ( 48 Shannock Rd.) Nominal meeting time is 9 AM.

But after two weather-foiled attempts by the club to help raise my 160 vertical antenna, an early 8:30 AM arrival is requested to finalize the project.  It has been blocking the top of my driveway now for two months, so anything short of a tornado, it’s going up…with much thanks to the club!  Parking suggested on Shannock Road…I can shuttle anyone needing assistance (call 783-1588).

Primary AGENDA item  as indicated by Prez Pat NG1G:  ELECTION OF OFFICERS.  Self-preservation dictates attendance.  Luncheon provided.

Guests and prospective members always welcome.  Posting your attendance plans under comments would be appreciated.  73!

Minimal effort from here. I just can't seem to keep my butt in the chair as long as I used to.
