Well.. From what we can see on the comments, people are pushed by Rebels to use brain (and muscle system) regarding QSO'S with T31TT activity.

1000s emails, questions, so many keyboard damaged, laptop screens, power supply cables cuts.. It's so much fun . No 73 no 73 why no 73. What they using?!

We don't see RR73! They said

Well have fun,

Kanton Island activity
from 6m to 160m
There will be very limited internet connection.

We will not read your cluster request, cluster nonses or cluster band change bagging .1 CW, 1 SSB, 7 FT8 Stations

Some important points:

1. We will operate WSJT-x soft only !
2. We always send 73' but only 3 times, after 3rd time we are moving to CQ call and you have to try again.

3. We will operate FT8 as FOX &HUND @ NORMAL MODE on standart freq.

Don't be surprised if you see our 2 signals same time on the same band but different freq.(for example 14.074 and 14.090 or 18.100 and 18.095 and so on )

If there is a low trafic on F/H freq. we will move to FT8 standart freq. and use Fox mode.
