I can hear everyone muttering, "Who the hell is VE7RAC? And how come I never heard of him, especially since his exchange was in CWT format - Jim 1368 - and the number is in the range of CW Ops members?" Well, to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary there are quite a few RAC suffix special event stations on the air until Dec 31. For details, including award info, check out I'm the designated VE7 CW/RTTY op for week of Oct 8 - 14 but, for family reasons haven't been able to get on the air as much as I hoped. When I havee been on cndx were rather poor and my best rate was about 15/hr. So, tonight I've got some time and I'm tuning across the HF bands and hearing virtually nothing. Well, nothing other than furious CW actvity with good signals over relatively narrow segmeents of 40 and 80. OMG it's CW Ops with their weekly one hour of CW mayhem. Say, should be able to make lots of Qs here, particularly seeing as how I'm a member of CW Ops and know how CWT works. Even made 100 Qs in one of their 1 hour segments some (better) years ago. Just 2 issues. The Cabrillo file has to work for the RAC award adjudicators and there's only 15 minutes left. So, figured out the CBR file issues, got on and made 8 Qs in 7 minutes. Thanks, guys. You may well hear another VE7RAC next Wed. 73, Jim VE7FO
