First off, I am new to RTTY......VERY NEW !!!
My question is, this weekend is the JARTS RTTY Contest. JARTS is the Japaneese Amateur Radio Teleprinters Society.
Is this normally a contest that has a high level of participation
I was somewhat surprized at the level of activity during the Makrothen RTTY contest a week or so ago.
For some reason, I expected the Makrothen to be a very small affair with little participation, but there was some decent activity to be found including some nice DX.
So, I am asking those who have participated in past years for opinions.
This might be a decent chance to pick up some additional DXCC entities in the South Pacific/VK/ZL/JA from my PEANUT WHISTLE station.
