• There is nothing fancy about most of the RTTY macro files that I uploaded, but perhaps a little explanation about them would be helpful.

    1. I operate both Run and S&P methods, and define functions keys for both operating modes.

    2. I operate ESM (Enter Sends Message), so my macros conform to the default function keys that would be sent when pressing [Enter].

    3. I usually work dupes as it is quicker than arguing the toss. so some macros don't define a macro key as "Worked B4".

    4. I rely upon macro substitution characters as much as possible, so you will see things like:   -

    {mycall} instead of G3LDI

    {SENTRST} instead of 599   - {EXCH} instead of some fixed string


    You will notice a file called GENERIC RTTY.MC in the gallery. When operating a new contest, it is easy to open the GERENIC file, modify it as necessary for that particluar contest, then save the macro file with a contest-specific title.


    After several years of operating RTTY and CW contests, I developed a large collection of Macro files. To avoid confusion in the N1MM root directory, I created a sub-directory under \N1MM called \Macros. I keep all of my macro files there.

    I hope you find this helpful. If you have any queries, give either Malcolm or myself a call on the Contest Net, which is Friday evenings at 2000 local on 145.250.

NARC Training 2019

Training is very important to us as we realise that is how new people can come into the hobby and attain their Foundation, Intermediate and Advance Amateur Radio licenses.

The Syllabus and Exams for all levels is changing significantly from August 2019 and so like many other clubs we need to take a break from running courses from August to give us time to research, prepare and plan courses based on all three levels for 2020. However we will be running three courses before August; A Foundation course in April, an Intermediate course from March - May and another Foundation course in June - July. So if you would like to take either of these exams with NARC in 2019 you need to book your place as soon as possible by emailing Exam Secretary David G7URP: This email address is being protected from spambots.
