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.   If you missedthe first one, please 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 ) Many thanks to WA7BNM and N7WA for their posting service.  Bruce suggests using the 
usual web form to report scores to the 3830 reflector.
