again on each band. Single operators can operate up to 10 hours of the 12 hour

Also, we'll have an "On-The-Air" Practice Session for NAQP-RTTY the previous

Test your setup and messages, check propagation, have fun.
Usual NAQP exchange, bands and rules - but no logs or reporting.

A fun part of NAQP-RTTY is to form a "Team". Anyone can recruit a Team
of 2 to 5 single operators who will have their scores combined for a Team score.
Both individual and Team scores will be published in the National Contest Journal
magazine. Teams must be registered before the start of the contest at the
Team Registration link on

See you on RTTY, Saturday July 21, 2012.
