Here you go:

2200-2230 UTC, Friday, 2 January
0200-0230 UTC, Saturday, 3 January (Friday evening NA time)

Same time and same drill as in recent years.  This coming Friday, let's have
two 30-minute practice sessions to check out our station equipment, software
and operator(s).  Even your support team can practice ... by serving you a
nice glass of wine during the practice sessions.  (If your support team
isn't sure what a "nice glass of wine" is, just have them bring you
something pricey.)

Operate just like it's the real thing that starts on Saturday.  Use whatever
bands are open and active for you at each time slot.  You might want to have
a special message prepared to respond to stations telling you that the
contest hasn't yet started.

Most of all, have fun over the weekend in the RTTY Round-Up.  Take some
photos of your operation and send them and/or a summary of your experience
to Jeff WK6I (email above in the Cc. area.)  It will help his task of
writing up the contest for QST next year.

73 & HNY,
