If you'd like to check out your station in preparation for next weekend's CQ
WW opener (RTTY mode), jump in one or both of the practice sessions this
Thursday/Friday (depending on your time zone).

- The early practice, catering to the European region will run from
2200-2230 UTC Thursday, 24 September.
- The late practice, catering to North America will run from 0230-0300 UTC
Friday, 25 September.

Join into both of them if you can.  It is a great way to check out your
station, your messages, your recollection of how to operate RTTY, etc.
Moreover, it is a lot of fun and will help dissipate any anxiety waiting for
0000Z on Saturday 26 September.  It is also an opportunity to find out which
contest expeditions are up and running.  (Yes, the regular Thursday night
NCCC Sprint at the same time as the late practice, so you ambidextrous ops
will simply have to choose ... or operate both at the same time.)
