For those who need a weekly dose of RTTY contesting, we continue the 
NS (SPRINT) format practice sessions, at a new time: 0145-0215Z, 
which worked out well last week.
Dupes OK after one intervening QSO on the same band, or on another 
band.  Great SO2R practice.

Several 'NS regulars' sent me their thoughts on the RTTY practice.
All expressed the need to have sufficient time to switch their logger 
from RTTY to CW,
hence the shift to 15 minutes earlier.  15m has been reliably open 
for some time,  start there.

The 30 minute RTTY sprint practice will be held on Thursday night, 45 
minutes before the CW NS Ladder:
0145to 0215Z June 20,  Thursday night in NA, 6:45-7:15 PM PDT, 
9:45-10:15 PM EDT, etc.

15, 20, 40, 80m;  +80 khz from bottom;  above 3583 on 80m.
100w, Sprint rules - see link below.

If you are intimidated by sprint rules, don't worry, just get on and 
CQ (then move 2 khz) or call someone and acquire the freq.

A new page has been set up on the NCCC website with the RTTY NS info.
It has several links to all sorts of "how to" articles.

73,  N6RO, Thursday Night Diddler!
