SJRA CW/RTTY/PSK31 Gurus - Prepare to Shine!

Now is the time to start honing your CW/RTTY/PSK31 skills and equipment in anticipation of the annual W1AW Field Day Bulletin.  A perfect copy of the W1AW Field Day message is a must for any card-carrying CW or RTTY/PSK31 expert, and you can receive a round of applause for presenting the genuine article to Bonus Points chairman KV2R prior to July 10.  Note you can do this at home!

Of course you must copy the message as transmitted by ARRL via W1AW on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday June 27-29.  The CW version will be transmitted at 8pm and 11pm EDT on Friday, 10am and 8pm on Saturday, and 10am on Sunday.  Digital (RTTY and PSK31) are transmitted at 9pm on Friday and Saturday and at 12 pm on Sunday.  All transmissions will be on the standard W1AW frequencies (see www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2014/2014%20w1a1%20sked.pdf).

Data rate is 18 wpm for CW.  2-160 m.

For those less elite operators who only can do phone, the message can also be recorded and then transcribed from the transmissions on the phone frequencies.

Good luck copying the message!  See you on Field Day
