WS7I publications, Articles,
Wanted to keep track of as many of the articles that I have put together over the years. I have written the RTTY Roundup results artilce for QST as well as the extended web results for those contests 2002-2012. I have written for CQ, CQ Almanac, was a columnist for the National Contest Journal doing the RTTY column for a couple of years. Wrote for the RTTY Journal and its various names through the years.
Compiled the WW RTTY WPX records for that contest from its beginings in 1995 until 2006. Submitted many records to the Ham Radio score database maintained by Ken Harker, WM5R and George K5TR. Contest Score Database
I have also created, assisted and worked on the RTTY Roundup records with Ken Harker through the years. These used to be found on the ARRL web site. Kept the North American QSO Party RTTY Records through 2002.

WS7I Terminal Unit (TU) Collection
Always have enjoyed the history and interesting equipment that has made up the RTTY experience. I started collecting some TU's several years ago when Bill Henry of Hal Communications gave me an unbuilt ST-5 kit. As I travel around to hamfests I like to get a bargain and put a piece of equipment in the collection.
Here is a link to some of the pictures of the units. WS7I TU Collection

WS7I DX Cluster
EWARG Packetcluster WS7I-1 ws7i.ewarg.org port 7300 is open to all members and all amateurs. Sysop is Jay WS7I, this is the oldest Packetcluster in the Pacific Northwest which was WS7I running the old AK1A software. It is now running CC Cluster (VE7CC). Many SDXA members use the WS7I-1 cluster.
Started in 2012 and completed in 2013 the WS7I remote has been a very fun project and has taken a lot of time to construct. We got a late start due to very west weather in the summer of 2012.
