One word of caution for the NA RTTY Sprint:
This weekend is also the Pennsylvania QSO Party, and this year's contest is
including both RTTY and PSK-31 modes.
So it is very likely that there will be Pa QSO RTTY and NA Sprint RTTY
co-existing during the Sprint. Shouldn't be a problem, EXCEPT that the guys in
Pa QSO may not be aware of the Sprint's QSY rules and be less than willing to
yield the frequency.
This SHOULD NOT be a problem, so long as people in each contest is aware of the
other and is willing to be flexible enough to allow for small differences.
[BTW, for those of you who are county hunters for the digital modes, look for
N3SH, the Pa QSO Party Bonus Station this year, on RTTY and/or PSK-31 from
Allegheny, Washington, Fayette, Clarion, and Venango counties!]

Be sure and join the NA RTTY Sprint this weekend for four hours of
fast-paced RTTY fun. It's a great way to shake down your station ... and,
your operating skill. Because every other QSO requires a QSY, you gets lots
of practice quickly tuning in RTTY signals and figuring out when to call.
Same Sprint rules as the CW and Phone Sprints last month with the addition
of the "legal dupe" rule where you can re-work stations on the same band as
long as there are at least three other intervening QSOs in both logs.
Review the rules at http://www.ncjweb.com/sprintrules.php. Also, be sure to
form or join a team and make sure it is registered prior to the contest:
I look forward to putting you in my log!
