Announcing a new event, the NCCC RTTY Sprint, for three Thursday nights starting March 22.

N6ZFO, who directs the NS Ladder competition, suggested recently that a trial RTTY Sprint might be of similar interest, noting the high participation of NS regulars in the recent RTTY NAS. So we're giving a RTTY NS a trial run for three weeks starting Thursday night March 22.

We'd love to have you join in.  

For a description of the contest, see www.ncccsprint.com

Briefly, rules are very similar to RTTY NAS, with the following changes:

1) Power limit is 100 watts.
2) QSY rule is 1 KHz for calling CQ or  responding to a CQ.
3) Multipliers are by band. Same mults as NCJ sprint, but with a few additions (see http://ncccsprint.com/rules.html )

Dates: March 22, 29 and April 5 (Thursday nights in NA)
Times:  Thursdays  6:30 - 7:00 PDT,  9:30 - 10:00 EDT
Fridays- 0130-0200Z  UTC
Bands: 20, 40 and 80m:
14080 - 14084 KhZ
7080 - 7084 kHz
3080 - 3084 kHz
