ARRL RTTY RU Contest 2018

Just a little less than 24 hours until the contest begins and I'm not going to be participating.

I picked the "Conversation Type" as "Problem," but be assured it isn't a FlexRadio problem.

As some of you are aware, I was attempting to use some real heavy metal (Teletype Model 28 KSR) in conjunction with a Flex 6700 to work the contest.  I'm not a real contester by any means (only 1 previous RTTY contest using a glass TTY), so was hoping at least to make a few contacts and then document my experience (with some video as well).  But due to issues with my Dovetron TU I have been unable to provide the ASFK audio to the 6700, so have been unable to transmit.  I can receive just fine, so may be monitoring to see if I can hear some of my fellow "GreenKey" enthusiasts  on the air with their heavy metal.

Maybe next year for the ARRL RTTY RU!

    Moved from a 28 ASR to HAL equipment in the mid 70's.

    Should have signed N (FIGS) 3 (LTRS) DF  :-)

    But the spirit of the part of the RU that I was tring to take part in was using actual electro-mechanical equipment.

    It was either the 28 ASR or the XYL.  It was a tough choice.

    My XYL just got a big laugh out of that!  And she has a 28 KSR and a TT-98 in her office.  While I have a good number more pieces of TTY gear in my shack.
