*Tonight: 0130Z (Friday UTC):  30 minutes.*

Per Ken's suggestion we're going to add 10 and 15m to the RTTY NS this
evening.  Try 10m for a minute or two, then 15 to see if there is activity.
Maybe the incredible 15m conditions we had in WPX last weekend will be in
occurrence this evening.

Note:  NS RTTY is every Thursday so please put it on your calendar.

help getting your station configured.  *
