Yes, I’m still hearing bells also. But that won’t stop me! Time for more RTTY! We had a good group last week, with several of our newcomers back for more.
Kind of a busy past weekend if you tried to operate in everything that was going on. This upcoming weekend is a bit slower, but there is a Sprint: the new SA (South America) Sprint is Saturday afternoon/evening. Simple exchange, but still has the QSY rules. So if you enjoy Sprinting, give it a try. The Stew is also up (I think this is the Pre-Stew Stew) so stay up all Saturday night and exercise your 160 ears.
If you need some quality keyboard time, please join us Thursday evening for 30 minutes of wild dial twisting. If you’ve never tried Sprinting, drop by and see what all the excitement is about!
Here’s the usual list of times, rules and extra notes for our usual Thursday soiree.
First warning: time change coming (except for you lucky ones in Arizona), so we’ll be moving to 1 hour earlier (local times) in the near future.
