CQ WW RTTY Contest 9/23/2023 to 9/24/2023

The digital portion of 40m lit up like a Christmas tree in the waterfall around 000z. o.0

For the SWL crowd, MMTTY or fldigi are good places to start if interested in decoding the traffic. I was using MMTTY under Wine on Linux earlier tonight to skim a few signals.

Was hearing a LOT of RTTY this past weekend. On 20 Meters, mainly.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
