Greetings Diddlers:

Looks like the upcoming weekend has quite a selection of things to do, but it does have one of the more unusual RTTY tests: Makrothen. Kind of like SPTBDC crossed with CQWW RTTY, with some other unusual rules thrown in. So, if you don’t know if your RTTY setup is functional or not, please join us Thursday evening and give it a try. And as a bonus you can keep your Sprint skills up to date (it’s only been a couple of weeks so they are still fresh!).

Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree. 15 is probably toast but 160 is starting to sound good.

Friday, 7 Oct 2016, 0145Z - 0215Z (Thursday 6 Oct 2016 in NA)
-- 1845 - 1915 PDT
-- 2145 - 2215 EDT
-- (others in-between those two)
-- 160: 1805 and up (Last two minutes seems to be popular…)
-- 80/40/20/15 +80kHz up from the band edge
-- 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, and join us at 0300Z on 3610 kHz
for comments and questions (and dinner menus).

Diddle diddle,

Ken K6MR
