The Rookie Roundup Returns to RTTY:

The Rookie Roundup returns to RTTY Sunday, August 18, 1800 UTC through 2359 UTC. Here's the perfect chance for new operators (licensed 3 years or fewer) to learn the skills of RTTY contesting. Rookie Roundup events take place three times a year: SSB in April, RTTY in August and CW in December. The Contest Branch reminds participants that there is a multioperator category, so several rookies can operate from one station, using the same call sign and name, regardless of the operator. Rookie operators forming teams must register them on the ARRL website.

"This is a terrific opportunity for seasoned operators to open up their stations to newcomers who may not yet have their own stations," said ARRL Contest Branch Manager Mike DeChristopher, N1TA. "Elmering is a critical component of the Rookie Roundup, and Old Timers are encouraged not only to get on and work the Rookies, but to host Rookies and assist them in learning how to participate in RTTY competition."

Participants may log using the forms available on the ARRL website (click on +RTTY Returns to Rookie Roundup). Submit your score via the form on the ARRL website. Participants have 3 days to submit score summaries after the contest ends. Contact Mike DeChristopher for more information.
