Greetings Diddlers!

With this season's CW Sprint now just a memory it's time to start thinking about the final Sprint for this season: RTTY! If you need a bit of practice to make sure your skills are up to speed we have just the thing for ya: Thursday night RTTY Sprint practice. And since you are going to be testing everything during the WPX practice sessions earlier on Thursday (as announced by W0YK) just leave the radios on and join in for a bit of Sprint practice.

K1N will still be with us, so we'll need to stay flexible. I'm not sure if they were watching out for us, but last week the 20 meter pileup disappeared 5 minutes before the NS start time. We must have friends in the right places.

Please join us at the usual time and place, and for those who have not been paying attention:

 160 METERS!!

Dupe rule still in effect, so don't let the small number of unique stations slow you down. Invite your friends to join in and keep everyone busy.

The usuals:

Friday, 13 Feb 2015, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 12 Feb 2015 in NA) (Hmmm, Friday the 13th UTC...)
-- 1745 - 1815 PST
-- 2045 - 2115 EST
-- (others in-between these two)
-- 160: 1805 and up <--- NOTE!!!
-- 80/40/20, +80kHz up from the band edge
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules.
-- 100W power limit.

Please visit http://www.ncccsprint.com/rttyns.html for complete rules and
links to other info.

Report scores to 3830scores.com, and join us at 0300Z on 3610 kHz for comments and questions. 

 Diddle diddle,

 Ken K6MR
