“Is it a dupe?” “What’s the call again?” “I’m getting QRMed!” All these shouts could be heard around the radio shack of the Southeastern MA Amateur Radio Association on Saturday, February 12. Armed with coffee and donuts, the SEMARA ops mounted a multi-transmitter effort, logging contacts across the US and Canada.
FISTS is the International Morse Preservation Society, offering nets, “code buddies”, a QSL bureau and merchandising of clothing sporting pro-CW messages.
