Greetings Diddlers!

That was certainly a good weekend of cw numbers copying practice (at least for me). This upcoming weekend is an eclectic mix of interesting things to do: the DigiFest has a mix of unusual (OK I have done RTTY75) digital modes as well as a number of cw tests to indulge in. And of course the biggie: PVRC Reunion!  Kidding. Alabama QP is on tap for you fans of mobile chasing. Word is that KN4Y as well as the dynamic duo of  K4BAI/KU8E will be putting on quite the show.

If you’d like a little regular RTTY Sprint practice before the weekend please join us on Thursday evening.  15 is still a bit iffy for RTTY and 160 is only usable for you EDT/CDT residents. 

Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree:

Friday, 3 June 2016, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 2 June 2016 in NA)
-- 1845 - 1915 PDT
-- 2145 - 2215 EDT
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: 1805 and up 
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge (Don’t forget to check 15!)
-- Same band dupes ok after 1 intervening Q.
-- 1 kHz QSY rule, otherwise standard Sprint rules
-- Mults per band.
-- 100W power limit.

Please visit http://www.ncccsprint.com/rttyns.html for complete rules
and links to other info. If you find any problems with the web pages, please

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

Diddle diddle, 

Ken K6MR
