Greetings Diddlers!

Good group last week, though a little short on the 3830 Scores pages. I’d like to ask (beg?) that if you have a few minutes after our get together that you make a report to 3830. It really helps us gauge activity and decide if things are going well. 

This upcoming weekend is quite a potpourri of activity. The Ukrainian RTTY, The Stew on 160, and the All Asian on cw appear to be the big ones. So whatever you’re into there’s something to do. 

But no Sprint, so if you’d like a little practice to keep your skills sharp please join us on Thursday evening.  160 is a lost cause on the west coast, but 15 is good enough for a few solid Qs (and mults, of course), so don’t forget to check! 

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

Friday, 17 June 2016, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 16 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
let me know so we can get them fixed. 

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

Diddle diddle, 

Ken K6MR
